Wolves Updates 3/25

Britt Robson/On The Ball does not think that Coach Wittman should be calling out Garnett for "a lack of locker room enforcement":
But people lead in different ways. For KG, it has always been going hard in every practice, studying every inch of available film, communicating with his teammates, playing through injuries, playing with passion, and remaining loyal to a franchise that has handled his career with seemingly no understanding of what would best complement his game.

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
Wittman said he thinks Garnett is much more of a vocal leader now than when he came into the NBA.

Both coach and player believe that Wittman could also "help provide more vocal leadership."

Mike James says that the "inconsistency on roles with this team" makes it difficult for someone to step up as a clear-cut vocal leader.

Some People's Kids are now offering "Free Bracey Wright" t-shirts.

Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune explains the future first-round picks owed by the team to the Clippers and the Celtics.

Aschburner also writes on the Wolves and Celtics and "the switcheroo between these teams from last spring to this one."

Hoopsworld's Rumor Mill on Coach Wittman (which they choose to spell "Whittman"):
Randy Whittman is not a long term solution in Minnesota - ask any Timberwolves' player and you may be surprised at how disliked Randy is among the players.

The Wolves return home from their long roadtrip to host the Trail Blazers this afternoon.
