Casey Fired

Recommended Posts

I'm a little surprised at the timing, since the first few weeks of the month they were really hot, but what could he have done about KG's suspension or the Double OT loss without Garnett. The Atlanta game is indefensible. I think management didn't like the inconsistency. His substitution patterns were a little baffling. He wasn't a bad coach, but he didn't set the world on fire either. At least they played good defense and got something from Blount. Some nights Blount looks like an all-star.

I think they wanted to fire him earlier but couldn't find any justification. They probably always wanted Wittman. Oh well, it isn't the Wolves time and it probably won't be for a long time.

Do yourselves a favor and watch the Suns. I caught their game on Sunday vs. Garnettless Wolves...What a fun group to watch. If I had the NBA League pass, I'd be watching ever game. They will win teh championship this year.

So when is Taylor going to pull his head out of the sand and fire the one guy who really, really, really needs it?? He has had long enough to put a winning team on the court and has proved over and over again he is incapable of doing so. FIRE MCHALE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's obvious that they are pals and I bet Taylor is in between a rock and a hard place with McHale....

Maybe Whitmann will see no reason to play Troy Hudson. Casey at least cut his playing time.

I heard Barreiro on the way home and he was about to have a heart attack. He made some good points, he went off on McHale (and with good reason). Star Tribune had an instant poll, What is your reaction to Dwane Casey's firing?

Results, at time of posting:

I'm fine with it and Randy Wittman's hiring, 14%

This is wrong, Casey was doing a good job, 5%

The wolves should hire a high profile coach like Larry Brown, 10%

Kevin McHale is to blame, the wrong guy was fired, 70%

I can't believe how long this has gone on. The only worse GM in sports is Matt Millen.

If McHale can fire Flip, then Taylor should be able to fire McHale. Is Taylor that naive that McHale is the constant in all the mess that the Wolves are in? Everyone else is gone except for him. He is like Matt Millen of the nba. If Glen is wondering who he could put into that spot he could use Hoiberg or go after Rex Chapman who was here last year. Wonder why he left? Maybe McHale thought Rex was a threat to his job. That would be one of the few things McHale would be correct. Maybe McHale should step down and he should call up Isaiah Thomas and they should run a team together. That would be the nba's version of tweedle dee and tweedle dumb. You have to feel for KG. How can he take this? I think everyone would be happy for KG if he is traded to a contender to win a championship.

you guys are right, they fired the wrong guy. They should of fired Matt Millen, wait McHale. Kevin McHale is the Matt Millen of football. I dont know who has run their team into the ground more between the 2. Oh well get a fresh guy in here to turn things around

Looking back on things, I guess they should have fired Casey earlier. Then we wouldn't have had those 20 of 32 wins holding us back from chasing down Oden or Durant. So much for Wittman's consistency and turning things around for those higher expectations in the front office.

Now with the 6th or 7th pick, they'll have to look things over a little more. McHale said he was going to be looking to make trades today, but what can you do with all those bloated contracts? See you all here a year from now with around the same record. Who knows if KG will be back.

    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
    • Not so Young dumb and full of............   Anymore?  😜
    • I think Negan should be in a cell that has a couple walkers in a cell on each side. lol
    • So, is Butler playing in the season opener? Has he even practiced, other than that one infamous time?
    • 2 episodes in, and I don’t have much of anything to complain about. Not great episodes by any means, but not bad either.
    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
    • Thanks Scoot!  Yes, we have our bear spray, brought a couple extra cans to keep in our packs besides what we have our on hips.   Hopefully it remains there the whole trip. Going to try and keep this updated during our trip. My son is taking video production class in school, hopefully he can put something together when we get back. Signing off for now, going to have lunch with the wife before I head home, grab the last cooler and pick my son up from school!  
    • It was an okay trip, made the best of it. Changed destination and distance I was willing to travel in those weather conditions. Can't afford to screw up when I'm solo.  More of a winter trip feel than a fall trip. After fishing in 17 degree windchill, I found just hanging out fireside a much better option.   I think I need to do an actual summer BW trip next year, despite the bugs and crowds. Then I can take the fishing part more seriously.   Seen some groups pass by camp, so there were others as crazy as I.
