Re: Minnesota Timberwolves- Re-re-rebuilding Time

from a guy who knows some stuff who posts at Canis:

Quote:
Glen Taylor is a loyalist and the guy he hired to run everything has turned out to not be able to run anything and he is having a hard time wrapping his head around the scale of this problem and what it means for the coaching staff, roster, and front office. It’s a lot to absorb for a guy who had no idea things were this far gone. Also, it’s a **** ton of money and the season starts in 4 days.

I am fairly certain there is a decent chunk of people over there who are loudly telling Glen that Thibs has gotta go and that some of the minority owners have really started to question what in the hell is happening.

The question is critical mass and logistics. Is there a critical mass of people calling for Thibs’ ouster and do they have the time and resources to make a break from…well, a lot of people. The Timberbulls can’t be in that locker room. Butler loyalists will have to go because every sideways glance they give to KAT or every jackass Butler quote about them will be over analyzed to death.

I think it’s really hard to overstate just how ****ed up things are over there right now. They absolutely can’t play the first game with the status quo in tact.
and another guy who apparently also has some source:
Quote:
and I’ll add that I think from things I’ve heard that the pressure is getting to Glen, and that he’s a bit paralyzed by it. Also, Nate’s first paragraph…this is key. We are pretty convinced now that Glen had no idea the scale of the problem until recently. Somehow Thibs convinced him that rumblings this summer were no big deal and he’d handle it. All of a sudden, Glen now sees that as the bull**** it was and is.

Pretty sure Glen is just cheap and doesn't mind humiliating Thibs by forcing him to coach the mess he created.

Butler to Play in Season Opener After Meeting with Glen Taylor
Quote:
Further RUMINT has it that some of the minority partners in the franchise are extremely unhappy with how Taylor has handled this situation, and have made their feelings known, though they don’t have a lot of say in things.

NBA TV needs to flex that shizzy on the air. I give zero ****s that ESPN is also airing games.

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves- Re-re-rebuilding Time

Timberwolves half court offense is still shyt. Way to much of Kat setting screens at the top of the key and butler dribbling the ball for 18 seconds per possession.

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves- Re-re-rebuilding Time

Jeff Teague, Andrew Wiggins, and Jimmy Butler are all major ball stoppers. Seems like the offense is gonna look like crap.

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves- Re-re-rebuilding Time

The 4 looks weak. Taj got his ass whipped on the boards by LMA and is mostly worthless while Tolliver looks really old and sucky. They're both 33 so we should expect a fair amount if drop off for each of them. Yet another season where we're spending a **** ton of money on Towns' front court mates that are all just worse than Bjelly.

Also Rose cannot play 32 minutes every game. He's a nice little league minimum guy that can be in the rotation but he sucks way too much to play heavy minutes.

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves- Re-re-rebuilding Time

This is the most frustrating Wolves team ever. The fact that Thibs is still in charge after looking the other way for several months after Butler requested a trade is ridiculous.

Playing Rose all those minutes instead of anyone else is stupid. Not running plays to get Towns more good shots is stupid. Rose goes 3/12 and plays 31 minutes while getting torched repeatedly by DeRozan while Okogie gets a DNPCD and Towns only takes 6 shots all game.

Fire Thibs now!

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves- Re-re-rebuilding Time

I get Twolves posts on my FB feed. For a couple days I was trolling them, commenting "Fire Thibs" in every post they made. I feel so little for this team right now because of Thibs and Taylor that I dont even feel the urge to do this anymore. I dont think I've been less interested since ~2007 or 8, a while after KG was traded and it was clear we had nothing positive going on.
