The Timberwolves are fucking awful. At 4-27, they easily have the worst record in the NBA. But coach Randy Wittman is staying positive about the team.
Before the game, Wittman pointed out that if Minnesota had managed to win even half of the eight games in which it led or was tied heading into the fourth quarter, it would have eight wins. Memphis, Miami and New York have eight wins, Seattle nine, the L.A. Clippers 10 and Sacramento, Chicago, Milwaukee and Charlotte 11. Is there really such a big difference between Minnesota and those other teams?
"Why, if we didn't choke all the fucking time, we'd be as good as the Knicks! We're very nearly as good as the public laughingstocks! Hey, can I get a raise or what?"
