Wolves Updates 12/6

Mad Dog says today is "one of the happiest days of this NBA season" for him because of a New York Times article in which David Stern says about the new ball, "we could have done a better job." Mad Dog himself says comparing the old and new balls is "like comparing Windows XP to the software used on a Commodore 64."

Via HoopsAddict, an interview on the Hornets website with Mike James. James talks about being the starting point guard and playing with Garnett. Below that is an interview with broadcaster Billy McKinney in which he's asked about KG trade rumors.

The Pioneer Press on Eddie Griffin's take on his lack of playing time:
Griffin is in the second season of a three-year, $8 million contract he signed in the summer of 2005. He has a player option for the 2007-08 season. Griffin said he hasn't made any decisions about his future with the team or whether he will walk away from the remaining year on his deal. He wants to see how this season progresses.

Wolves owner Glen Taylor on the team's record:
"If you asked me earlier in the year where I hoped we would be at this time, I would have said probably the reverse of 7-9," Taylor said. "Looking at the teams we've played, the schedules and stuff like that, I thought we should have been a little above 50 percent at this time. It would have been nice to win a couple of close games that we lost. Two wins, you know, just changes everything."
