Wolves Over The WeekendHere's a list of excuses used to explain their loss to the Hornets on Saturday night.
Garnett: We never adjusted to Speedy.
Blount: I don't know nobody yet...I'm still learning what everybody likes to do, what position they like the ball, which way they like to go. I just want to get that down, and when the all-star break is over, be ready to roll. There will be 30 games left, and it's time to definitely get it cranked.
Dwane Casey: Now the teams have scouted us...We've got to be able to get to our second option, our third option, whatever, because they know who to help off of, how we're going to play. I think we had a little honeymoon the first few games (after the trade) as far as our offense is concerned. That's what we need is practice days to kind of string together.
I believe that lack of practice time and team bonding are the biggest problems with the Wolves like I believe that Jaric was on the inactive list on Saturday due to tendinitis and not because of his constant bitching. Despite the mess, Glen Taylor/Sid Hartman has said that Casey's job is not on the line.
A few of the many trade rumors currently circulating about the Wolves:The Clippers and Wolves are talking about Chris Wilcox for Eddie Griffin but McHale is hesitant, "fearing that Wilcox might have his own issues, different from those of Griffin."
An NBA team executive believe that the Celtics are holding off on dealing Paul Pierce in case the Wolves decide to trade Garnett.
Manute's Webb compiled a list of the dirtiest players in the NBA and Kandi made the cut:
His head looks like an unattended garden with a serious worm problem. Your appearance can be an expression of one's self, but at least wash your hair once in awhile.
