The T-Wolves aspire to become the Chicago Bulls

19

"There's little doubt that NBA analyst Mark Jackson will be the Timberwolves' new coach. Former Gophers star Mychal Thompson, who is a Los Angeles Lakers analyst, recommended Jackson to Wolves President David Kahn. 'He's smart, and everybody respects him,' Thompson said of Jackson." First, they try to find a franchise point guard in the draft and now they might hire a former player who has no experience coaching at all. They're trying to be the Chicago Bulls of the Western Conference!

Who Should Start Game 1 for the Bulls Next Season? (w/poll)

According to VDN, the starting line ups are not set.  So we as fans should be ready for anything.    

Listen, it was a tough, close game with 95 possessions and 233 points scored between both teams....

Listen, it was a tough, close game with 95 possessions and 233 points scored between both teams. And Del Negro (who does have plenty of strengths, despite my constant complaining) coaches a young team. There's a lot to try and keep in order. But at some point you're going to have to trust the players to work it out on their own, running the plays you've been calling since October, and doing what 29 other coaches seem to be able to do quite effortlessly. Well, not "effortlessly," but consistently. VDN's inability to save timeouts for the final seconds has been a sticking point all season, among many sticking points, and it's hard to understand how in game 84 (plus preseason) it still hasn't stuck. You have to keep one in your back pocket, and that doesn't mean you eschew calling the TO before the final TO. It's the TO before the TO before the final TO that you don't call. You have to learn to let it go, especially with the ball in your hands, up a point, and about two minutes to go.

Bulls Beat #108 - Case for VDN and Paxson

3

Doug makes the case for VDN returning on the premise that JR will NOT hire an experienced (i.e. expensive) coach as a replacement. The case for Paxson relies on the worst moves (e.g. Bum Wallace signing, Deng contract) being JR moves.

''You can diagram plays all you want,'' Del Negro said. ''But the bottom line is, you've got to make plays down the stretch. You've got to put the ball in the basket, and you have to get stops. You have to be smart with the basketball. We had some opportunities to convert. We weren't able to capitalize. But I liked the way we fought.''

Lets actually do something about it...

I tried writing this after the game but found myself cursing almost every word. Lets be honest, something has to be done about our coaching situation.  This is not just another rant about how angry...
