Hey Witt, Point Guard Is An Important Position...

I don't think he gets it.

I'm fairly certain he doesn't understand.

He started Marko Jaric at point guard the other night because Randy and Bassy were hurt. Okay, that's fine, I get it, both your lead guards are hurt so you have to go with the best option. Then he said Marko played OK. What? 3 assists and 5 turnovers is not OK for a starting point guard in the NBA. Then, to make matters worse, he actually called Marko a point guard. Don't feed his already fragile psychy with utter lies - just because you tell me I'm rich doesn't make it true.

Marko is infact NOT A POINT GUARD. He never has been, he never will be. It's time, Randy, to make sure he knows that. To take that further, the Guy Who Brings Guns Into Airports shouldn't be your backup point guard. He should be fired. So that leaves us with zero true point guards on this team. Not one. Foye is close, but he's in the mold of a poor mans D-Wade. Why wouldn't you make a move for a starting lead guard? They have three in Seattle, one of which I bet they'd be willing to let go of. Hey Delonte, you wanna play with your old mates? Even a guy like Mike Wilks makes sense. They need a veteran playmaker on the bench atleast, otherwise we're just a poor man's Atlanta Hawks.

When this first appeared on the Failure Blog, I had an inkling it was in the wrong place...

But now that I think about it, any post about the Timberwolves could really go either way. Randy Wittman, after all, has the highest losing percentage of any coach. Ever.

your argument against telfair is limited to his off the court problems. weak.

I agree that there's no point guards on the Wolves and, per ad's comments, I think the argument against Telfair's ability can easily be made based on his on-court failures.

He was a scorer in his famed high school career and averaged a bunch of assists against high schoolers when he was double teamed and his teammates were open. I would rather have his brother Jamel on my team than him. Jamel is a fundamentally sound player, at leat.

He's had 86 games as starting point guard to demonstrate his inabilities and he lost his starting job to Steve Blake, who I would rather have than any of our "point guards" right now.
