Running out of things to say...

So the Wolves lose again last night to Chicago. At the beginning of the season, I bet the Bulls to win over 43.5 games. Right now, it looks as though it will take a miracle for them to make it. But the Bulls and the Wolves are alike in the fact that both of them entered the season with good--but not great expectations and have disappointed heavily. But last night, they looked like a team that should win 50 games.

It's hard to figure out what to write about the Wolves at this point. It seems like every time the seem to do something well and I write about it, the next game they come out and do it poorly. As a result, with every post I look more and more like an idiot.

For example, I wrote about how I though the Wolves did a good job forcing the Raptors to take bad shots, and played well enough to win the game most of the time and dominating every other aspect of the game. Then last night, they come out and it seems like every shot the Bulls took was within 5 feet of the basket.

Well this post is going to be the exception to all of those other posts, because if there's one thing that has been consistent about the Wolves this season, it's their inconsistency (not to mention their ability to lose every close game). In order for the Wolves to prove me wrong, they have to start doing something well for the rest of the season. I don't care what it is, just pick something. Rebounding, shooting, getting to the foul line, defense, etc.

At this point in the season I've thrown in the towel. It's time to cut KG down to about 30 minutes a game, and time to start preparing for the future. This means giving time to the guys who we're going to count on next year--Banks, McCants, Blount, and even Jaric. It doesn't matter if we win or lose anymore. We need to start focusing on getting the Wolves to work together as a team and start developing our talent.
