I'd give Adelman way more credit than I ever would Kahn for this roster. Comments on some of the articles I've read on this have been hilarious. MN fans can't handle an athlete speaking out it seems.

Also someone who can operate a draft (but I won't blame him for Dwill, none of the players from that draft 2-10 have really shown much).
That's the thing. He botched the Flynn pick majorly (should have taken Curry if he wanted to go 2 point guards)

But the Wesley Johnson draft year didn't produce much talent after the Wolves' pick, and last years draft class was pretty barren as well.

Have they drafted poorly? of course, but let's at least acknowledge that their lack of success has not been unique.

5:23PM EST December 13. 2012 - MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Brandon Roy says he never considered retirement after his latest operation.

Roy was back at practice on a limited, non-contact basis with the Wolves on Thursday, almost one month after arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Roy said he'll be able to participate without restriction next week but there is no timeline for his return.

No Love tonight, out with flu-like symptoms, probably from looking at his Shooting % the last few games.

Wolves aren't playing great, but Rubio just had a nice bounce pass, and nearly had a steal earlier.

More than anything right now we need his Defense, we're playing horrendous D.

Rubio with 2 sick passes, including a great behind the back one that Dwill ruined by missing the wide open shot.

Russo:

Dwill, after struggling at first, is having a solid game.

Russo is going to leave the Wild to cover the Wolves

I can't wait to see him be able to play more than 16 minutes, and when Love is in the lineup.

Also Msconduct tweets what i'm sure Avder/rynryn are thinking

Russo live-tweeting basketball feels very much like rock bottom to me. Starting to hope the Mayans are right.

How much of the game is left?

I opted for a late nap instead.

8 min, but Rubio is likely done for the night.
