of creating a team, I offer up these quotes about the T-wolves from Secrets of the City. " 1. No D in fun."
"The Timberwolves literally don't know how to play, don't know the basics of functioning as a synergistic five-man unit. Aside from the insult their presence posed to the benched starters, that's why Ollie and Cardinal were in the game, to provide a primer on Team Basketball 101. Seriously.
Furthermore, the Timberwolves literally don't know how to compete, don't grasp how shameful it is to passively concede eminently winnable games to opponents who join you down in the dregs of the NBA talent pool."
I think Nate has done a great job at teaching the Blazers how to play together. In spite of fans calling for letting the team run more he's insisted they know how to walk first. Media & fans seem to agree that the Blazers are a team, not a superstar with a supporting cast and I think the coaching staff can take a lot of the credit for that. Sure our "superstar" is a team first guy which certainly helps, but he's been allowed perhaps more freedom than many young players (how many coaches and front offices would seriously listen to a rookie calling out their 20-10 guy?).
I think McMillan and Roy are good for each other and after reading that pitiful quote above I just want to give some props to way McMillan has been bringing this team along.
Wonder if the Wolves should consider bringing back Dwane Casey.
