Default Wolves ad in paper admits the negative

The AP reports:

The team took out a full-page ad in Monday's Star Tribune sports section, featuring a long open letter to fans that acknowledges the negatives, points to the positives, and spells out the plan for improvement.

Included in the letter are these words: "So will we challenge for the NBA championship this year? Not likely."

As fans of the Timberwolves, we pretty much did not need an ad in the paper to tell us the obvious. Depending on how the team plays this season, we will have a feel of how far away from the playoffs we are. I got us at 5-6 years before we get to be playoff ready.

Does anyone actually think the Wolves are in position to contend for the NBA Title??

No.

Did this ad reassure anyone that they will be contending in the near future??

No.

Does having a realistic GM that has the goal of compiling assets and talent towards a vision of shooting, athleticism, and defense, make sense moving forward??

Yes.
