Tyus/Okogie/KBD/Tolliver/Dieng are SO MUCH better on defense Teague/Rise/Wiggins/Taj/KAT.


I really like watching Okogie and KBD play together....so much more bball smarts than Wiggins.

And then there is the double-standard. Last night Okogie is playing well and then he travels. Thibs lets out a really loud expletive, yells at Josh, yanks him from the game and pulls Rose off the bench to replace him (we was not about to check in before the stop in play). A few plays later, Rose travels, and not a peep out of Thibs. No wonder there is such a divide in the locker room.

That's like Gardy. Best example was Brendan Harris and Nick Punto. Other examples are Aaron Hicks and any of our other outfielders at the time. And Cuddyer when he first came up. He blamed a Radke HR on a Cuddyer strikeout in a previous inning. I bet Thibs is not as bad as Gardy.


Thibs is worse.

If Gardy acted like Thibs, he'd get thrown out of every game.

Hopefully that Thibs is reformed in his sideline antics. Crossing my fingers and hoping it's true.

I don't think there's a chance of that. That tiger's not changing his stripes.

First preseason game totally reformed. Next two better than last year.

I think he looks more like “Dead Man Walking” than a changed man.

That sucks. He's healthy enough to beat our first stringers with third stringers, but can't play?

I wonder if he will be on the bench.

Thib's will probably let Butler coach

Jimmy shouting at the players calling them soft.

With Wiggins not there to attend to the birth of his kid, I wonder if Okogie will get the start?

No.

But when Thibs tells a room full of reporters that Butler is "back in Minnesota working on his conditioning", I think that's a pretty reliable narrative.

Meatsauce broke the story at 7:55 AM local time, or 5:55 AM for you. I'm thinking that was before Thibs talked to anyone.

So reports are that Pat Riley yelled at Thibs over the phone, called him a MFer, and hung up?
Now, THAT'S awesome.

Yup.

All because Thibs asked for more that Richardson, a protected draft pick and a horrible contract in return for a superstar.

This is the rare case where I 100% agree with Thibs.

I see that KG weighed in and referred to things in Mpls as a sh!tshow. No surprise there. http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/24967397/kevin-garnett-weighs-jimmy-butler-minnesota-timberwolves-tension

Jimmy says he wants to feel "wanted by the organization"

Idk what to think of that.

-The Wolves traded for him. I think that means they want you.
-Also offered him the max amount he was eligible for this summer.

Thib's has went to bat for him and is the POBO and Coach. Does Jimmy need Thib's to get on his knees and beg? Perhaps he already has for all we know.

Jimmy is attempting damage control to make himself look less like a selfish idiot.

Unofficial but it appears Keita Bates-Diop will start for the Wolves tonight — in place of Andrew Wiggins.

------------------

I guess Thibs wants more size than Okogie provides with a Tyus/Rose backcourt.
