Updates Part II

Britt Robson/City Pages on how Mike James "has begun to contest his demise," Craig Smith losing his "mojo," and Trent Hassell:
Instead of pressing Hassell for points and dimes, how about seeing if you can make Ricky Davis give a damn about defense more than once every two or three games, for more than two or three quarters a game.

Gordon Wittenmyer/Pioneer Press and Stephen Litel/SportsPage Magazine recap yesterday's game.

The Pioneer Press on the win over Houston:
For the second game in a row, the Wolves had three players record double-doubles: Garnett (26 points, 13 rebounds), center Mark Blount (21 points, 10 rebounds) and guard Mike James (12 points, 10 assists).

Sam Smith/Chicago Tribune on KG:
It's one big reason I'm always pushing for a trade for Kevin Garnett. He doesn't want the easy way out. That's why you want players like him.
And why you don't want someone like Indiana's Jermaine O'Neal.
