Wolves- Worst Dressed Team In The League

SI.com ranks the 15 worst dressed team in sports. The Wolves come in at #14, the only basketball team on the list. Maybe it's a Minnesota thing because the Wild follows the Wolves on the list.

While other teams are getting shoes like this for the spring, the Wolves are getting shoes with their seriously outdated logo in a position too large and too prominent on the shoes. I couldn't find a pic, but there's a billboard in Uptown that displays the hideous kicks.

In other news:
Jack McCallum was on KFAN with Chad Hartman today talking about his new book. Hartman asked McCallum what he thought Garnett's value would be if offered up to another organization. McCallum's response was, "extremely high." He believes that even with a change of scenery, KG would be unbelievable for any team and that few guys in the league could command as much as him. You can listen to the interview here.

Britt Robson/City Pages writes on Coach Casey trying to save the team and his job.

Mike James on his performance thus far:
"I've been cheating the fans," James said after practice Tuesday. "I seriously have. I've been cheating the fans and the organization since I've been here."

"Sometimes I get caught up in being `the point guard,' " James said. " `Pass first, make sure Ticket gets the ball, make sure Rick gets the ball.' But then, my scoring is needed, because a lot of times, that's what energizes our team and will help us get going."

Newsday wonders if Marbury could end up back with the Wolves.
