Has Kahn gotten too much abuse?

Does getting Beasley cure all the other ills? Like some of what Kahn has done at the end of the bench  Both Telfair and Ridnour have contributed.  We haven't seen Webster yet, but I think he will...

Interesting... just gathering talent or does he think we need more wings? Michael Beasley, Wesley Johnson, Anthony Tolliver, Martell Webster, Nikola Pekovic, and Lazar Hayward to fill the Gomes void. There are only 96 total minutes to be played per game between both forward slots.

A key part of Jefferson's offseason agenda includes workout sessions in Houston with hall of fame center Hakeem Olajuwon, who was known for his excellent footwork in the post. Olajuwon been one of my favorite players since I came into the league," Jefferson said. "I'm hoping he can take my game, on offense and defense, to another level.''

"One thing I have to realize: We play well when I play great defense," Jefferson said. "That's what's going to win a lot of games for us. If I set a great example on the defensive end, that makes all the guys step up and play great 'D.' That gives us a great chance to win."

Wolves Plan to Re-Sign Darko Milicic -- NBA FanHouse

+

The Minnesota Timberwolves are making plans to offer enigmatic center Darko Milicic a new multi-year contract this summer when he becomes a free agent, believing they can tap the potential that others saw but never could convert consistently. This is a good thing for me here right now. I think me and Al ) can work well together next season,'' he told FanHouse Friday. "I've always just wanted the chance to play, and play the right way. It looks like I can get that here. They trust me. If they are going to play me this much, and have any kind of goals to be a winning team, then I would like to come back.''

Jefferson hurt "other knee" against charlotte - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

+

Game-time decision" is one of sports' most overused phrases. Timberwolves center Al Jefferson truly was one Tuesday. Jefferson didn't declare his hurting left knee sound enough to play until coach Kurt Rambis had to submit the night's lineup an hour before the opening tip. He started the game, played nearly 25 minutes and had 14 points and five rebounds after coming down wrong his left knee—not his surgically repaired right one—in the fourth quarter last Wednesday against Charlotte. "Now I got two bad wheels," Jefferson said. "It was sore, but it wasn't sore enough that I couldn't play. You just fight through it. Continue to get treatment and play through it, that's what you got to do, baby, in this league."
