Wittman actually Gone

Recommended Posts

Yep. He got canned. If you look at his record, yeah, he coached some bad teams but he never made them any better when he took over. Has one of the worst win pct. in leage history.

I would look for the wolves to hire a veteran coach.

It's about time, that guy is worthless. I don't think it will get any better with McHale on the bench, this season is over. They should really consider bringing back Flip, but I don't he'll want to come back. A positive is this team is very young and has some really good talent, we just need a coach to be able to tap into it and get them to play together. Or not give up a lead in the 4th quater

from my understanding mchale didnt step down from anything. he's just doing both like he did when they fired flip

err, nevermind, im wrong. maybe we could hire a competent VP?

What a joke things are over at Target Center. Fired Casey to bring in his close buddy Wittman, now Taylor has had enough so he says cut the cord. Do these guys operate with any long range plan? Other than KG, they haven't had one move that has worked out and nothing that post hoc looks like it was planned out.

At this point the general consensus will be 'who cares?' They're a few years away from competing and even if you have salary cap room they won't attract anyone significant. Should have kept KG, brought in some decent complements, and paid the luxury tax, because now you're losing even more by not putting bodies in the seats.

I agree with ESPN's Bill Simmons, the NBA just needs GMs that use common sense, like a kid that plays NBA video games all day to tell them when they are making a mistake "Geez Kevin, I don't know, maybe a senior guard that is ready to contribute is better than another undersized point guard when we already have 3, let's pick Roy"...too much of a good old boy network among Taylor and McHale for anyone with any brains to come on board. Meanwhile the franchise sinks even lower and the perception is that Minnesota is the last place you want to play in...Guys would rather play for the Clippers than here because at least then the weather is nice. Unbelievable what this team became.

Yep, getting rid of KG was the downfall. Even when they weren't that good with him he put butts in the seat. Now they have nothing and we having nothing to look forward too. I would assume even their TV ratings are down.

After the initial shock to the players (which usually sends a strong message and makes them play harder, and sometimes translates to more wins,) in the first month, if McHale wins at better than a .250 clip I would be amazed. If he wins at better than a .333 clip I would buy season tickets, and if he wins at better than .400 I would eat my timberwolves hat.

...Like the problem is the coaching. Taylor just ignores the huge 600 pound gorilla in the room. Do you suppose Mchale will use the same line he used when Casey was let go: "We just didn't think the team was playing up to expectations" Remember that Casey had the team in the #8 playoff spot, and Wittman turned them in a .250 ballclub. Think McHale has expectations for this year's team? What a joke. He made this team, no he can see how good HIS players are. He should be tossed out with the garbage too. After all these years and little to show for it it's time for someone else to have a turn on principal alone, regardless of whether or not you think he's at fault here.

Glen Taylor and Mchale are the reason this team (and I use the word team very tounge in cheek)is so bad.Taylor has let Mchale do everything he wants and you see the results on the court.The league should pull his franchise from him for putting such a blackeye on the sport.But money talks and I guess he has the millions to lose.I pretty much stopped watching after Flip left.If he actually has the guts to fire Mchale that would be a huge step in right direction.Until then I guess all wolves fans can enjoy their 15 to 20 win seasonsssss,And thats being kind.

no talent. no leadership. no direction. no clue. NO THANKS! I've got better things to do with my time than watch the Detroit Lions of the NBA.

New coach, same result. They led Utah the whole game and lost 99-96. Love's 2-9 free throwing shooting might have had something to do with it, particularly when he missed 2 in the last 2 minutes.

Yea, I got sucked in like an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly. Watched the last four minutes and though, hey this could be good. Maybe this will be the reason Taylor needs to get rid of McHale now.

at least we were competitive against a good Utah Jazz team. it didnt help though that K-love was 2-9 from the free throw line and rashad was 2-12 from the floor and 0-5 from behind the arc

we played competitively against a really good Utah team. Mchale is no good as a GM but maybe he can coach. Its exactly what we needed to happen though, play competitively and lose

    • So anyway. The gun that I always wanted to get just for the fun factor is the old Ruger 44 mag carbine. Great for short range still Deer hunting through the woods. The farmer that we use to hunt with before he passed away had one. One day his son was using it and I heard him shoot. When we got back to the truck I said did you shoot?  He said yes I shot all 5 rounds at a running Doe. The darn little gun shoots so fast I only heard 1 or 2 of his shots! 
    • I think ST is right on the vacuum part. With some carbs, you have to maintain a certain amount of vacuum for it to operate right. Thus making it necessary to run some sort of airbox or a lid. It takes resistance on the filter side of the carb to pull the slide up. I am not sure how it works exactly but from what I can gather it has to do with velocity through the carb that pulls the vacuum to operate the slide etc. Some carbs are just very finicky to how they pull in air. Not sure if this restoration would have changed any of that
    • well I got an itch that needs scratching I may be heading out tomorrow for the first time if the wind doesn't wreck things today. Doesn't look like I need to get much further than Hwy 14 for walking out.
    • Funny how this system works. I have a buddy get a tag in his first year applying.
    • Pagans, most likely.    You’re a good debater but even you have to admit your 85% rule would only apply if 85% of the entire population where criminals. You can have 85% of crime caused by 15% of the population.
    • I broke the trigger guard my my t/c omega on the last day of the season.  I looked online but can't seem to find anywhere selling that part.  Any idea where to get one?  I'd rather not buy entire new muzzleloader. It's the silver part in this pic.    
    • Yes we have and still, It only makes sense that if 85% of this country's population identifies as Christian. 85% of the criminals when ask with a check off box on their in-processing form, would identify with what they were raised with as well. Big shock! By the way that question is on the in-processing forms so the few atheist's and other beliefs can be accommodated during their stay as well. It doesn't mean that the little Norwegian or German Lutheran ladies down in Belle Plaine are going to gun down Big Dave with their AR's after the church Pot Luck as he walks down the street! Fear-Not Dave.   
    • Not just heat, if you have central air it will run off that also though not as well.  Usually no real need to have a humidifier run in the summer though around here.  
    • You can buy shallow mount speakers for a couple extra bucks, but making a bumpout inside isn't to bad.  We put ours in the corners in the back with a 45'd wood box.  The front are in the bathroom wall so there was room there.  Going to throw in some outside ones next summer and for those I'm planning on shaving out the sprayfoam and just packing insulation in behind them.  They will be mounted behind cabinets so shouldn't lose to much heat.  Outside if they don't fit I will be buying the plastic pre-made spacers, don't want wood out there.
    • We've went over this before but over 85% of this country's population is Christian. Guess who is causing over 85% of the crime? And actually, there have been terroristic threats against the couple of outed atheists here in Belle Plaine.......
