Wolves Updates 11/20

Glen Taylor is one of eight owners who sent a letter to the league commissioner which "pleaded with Stern to adopt revenue sharing."
"We are asking you to embrace this issue because the hard truth is that our current economic system works only for larger-market teams and a few teams that have extraordinary success on the court and for the latter group of teams, only when they experience extraordinary success. The rest of us are looking at significant and unacceptable annual financial losses."

Stephen Litel/City Pages thinks that the team needs to be more "focused."
Watch this team closely when they are in the huddle. Kevin Garnett, Randy Foye and Craig Smith are the only players seemingly hanging on what Coach Casey is trying to communicate to the team. Other than the two players named, everyone else is doing their own thing.

Although fans love it, Mark Madsen is always speaking to spectators while Mark Blount is chatting with Troy Hudson. Trenton Hassell is working on his bum knee while Ricky Davis is dancing to the music filling the Target Center. Mike James sits back in his chair and zones out while Marko Jaric is zoned out.

Love And Basketball says that T-Hud's new album "Undrafted," initially scheduled for a summer release, is set to come out early next year. The record features David Banner, Clipse, and Twista. Still Listen has a link to one of the songs from the new album.

From the Pioneer Press:
Timberwolves guard Ricky Davis not only practices 200 shots most mornings, but when in Minneapolis on many off nights, he'll go to Target Center and shoot an additional 200 times.
"No, I don't get tired shooting; I've got an AK-47 for an arm," he said.

KG on Saturday's loss to the Hornets:
"You try not to think about it," he said. "Easier said than done. We have three days to prepare for New York. Our plan is to try to get a string of wins and get ready for New York."
