No NOT the animal. :pouty: :banghead: :banghead: our illustrious NBA basketball team. :confused:

I know there aren't any or many basketball fans here but they have a new head coach.  They fired Saunders today. I was wondering when this was going to happen. :scratch:

They have the worst record in the NBA and last nights game was just an example.  They got way behind, made a nice comeback, but too little too late.  I was wondering.  Although, too many injuries don't help.  I hope the new guy does better.

 :scratch: Sure didn't help that KAT has been unable to play much the last couple seasons. They must've had this in the works as some assistant from Toronto has already been named as the replacement. Thibodeaux couldn't get out of town fast enough & he left Saunders with a mess, so he didn't get a fair shot IMO.  :pouty:

These guys seem to play when they want to play - and most of them don't want to play defense.

Did you see where we finally unload Wiggins to the Warriors and suddenly he's playing defense?  I reckon if he didn't try hard on that team, he'd be on the bench.  But for the Woofies, it doesn't seem to matter.

Wiggins' defensive statistics putting him in elite company

Thibodeaux was defense first.  He couldn't make them play D.  Saunders took a different tack, but the result was the same.

Also read that the lead man in the T'wolves front office now was in the Rocket's front office when the new guy that's comin got his start in the league with them. :scratch: Not much defense played in the whole league IMO & almost all the rule changes in recent years have been put in to help the offense. One reason I don't watch much NBA anymore.

Along with that the mess the NBA's made of the NCAA. The one or two and done's along with the coaches who play that game including but not limited to coach K, Calipari, Kelvin Samson and the list goes on. Bobby Knight for all of his other faults had that one right. They were there to go to school and get an education first.

Well, last nights game proved, it isn't the coaches fault, but then I was told, 24 hours is not an indication and he needs time to practice and find out more about his players.  The announcers also stated that the T-Wolves have not had a long stretch at home and this effects practice time.  The Bucks though couldn't miss either last night and are among the leaders in 3 pt makes.

Why anybody pays any attention to the NBA is beyond me. I wouldn't watch them play if they were playing in my front yard.

Best of luck to the new guy and the next guy and the guy after that...........

I like to watch the home teams.  Those are the only games I watch though.  I know some that are glued to sports channels all day.  Hey, some even watch golf.  LOL!!!

Funny thing is...  with all the "new" drama - players building their own super teams, trade demands, social media battles, social justice issues, Instagram highlights, etc. - stuff that rubs a lot of old schools fans the wrong way - is just the stuff that energies the new, younger fan base.
