Default Re: Timberwolves fire coach Randy Wittman, Kevin McHale takes over

I called it on draftday, this team has no direction. They made a great pick in May who could have failed there need as a go-to guy and been a great compliment with Al on the perimeter but they traded him for another in 4 in Kevin Love who doesn't even have superstar potential. This team is among the worst you could build around a star big man, and are headed for the lottery again for what the 4th or 5th straight year? Its time to get rid of McHale and give the GM job to Fred Hoiberg.

Roy was considered the most ready NBA prospect out of that entire class.

Foye was like the only senior, and those 2 are on just 2 different levels. The Roy and Foye trade is the type that sets a franchise back a decade. The Love/Mayo is just pure dumbassery, especially when the centerpiece you get back is the position you dont need to be filled.

Losing Roy and then Mayo ? I don't think I could handle it.

I am still trying to get over the Korolev over Granger pick but losing those two are far, far worse.

Al Jeff + either of those guys would be a solid core.

I would say Al Jeff + Roy + Mayo = playoffs.

They need to hire Sam Mitchell bring him back to Minnesota where he had a great career there. He's a great coach to help develop all the young players there just look at what he did in Toronto with Bosh and Calderon.

i completely forgot about the roy for foye trade... goddamn that was retarded.

wolves could be pretty decent with roy, they could have a lineup like this..

roy
miller
gomes
love
jefferson

or this if they wanted everyone to play their true positions..

telfair
roy
miller
love
jefferson


not bad.

Ditto. Yet there were a surprising # of people here defending the move. I don't have the time to search for the threads, but posters were actually defending Lurch for drafting a potential All-Star, then trading him for an average PF who will soon be fat and out of shape again.

Seriously, how does one person in an executive position make so many bad decisions and still hold on to their gig?
