cst 64362 Wolves vs. Dallas

So I was in Australia for a few weeks and missed a bunch of Timberwolves games. ¬†Believe it or not they don’t get Fox Sports North down there, only cooking channels dedicated to Vegemite-fried¬†wallabies on a stick. ¬†So what did I miss? ¬†We went 8-0 right?

Oh, we went 2-7. ¬†Sad koalas. My god, we could¬†lose more games under Tom Thibodeau than Sam Mitchell. That’s like a blindfolded and drunk¬†DeAndre Jordan beating Steph Curry in a free-throw challenge. I guess we need to pump the brakes on this whole “We’re going to make the playoffs this year” train. ¬†Which leads me to the most painful sentence I’ve had to type since “I think I’m going to get hemorrhoid surgery”:

It’s time to trade Ricky Rubio.

Listen, I love Ricky. ¬†He’s my favorite Timberwolf after KAT and Wiggins and Lavine and Crunch. ¬†I have defended Ricky at every turn for every game he’s been here. But he needed to¬†make a significant jump forward this year and he’s managed to go backwards. ¬†Ricky’s only averaging 6.7 assists per game. Dude, you can’t score. ¬†You HAVE to get more assists otherwise you’re just a guy who might as well be mopping or ironing one of Pekovic’s 400 injury suits. ¬†And he clearly doesn’t fit in with whatever Thibs is screaming about on the sidelines.

“RICKY! DID YOU REMEMBER TO TURN YOUR STOVE OFF?!??!”

Ugh, this sucks. ¬†I don’t want to break up with Ricky. ¬†It’s the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do. ¬†To look you in the eye and tell you I don’t love you. ¬†It’s the hardest thing I’ll ever have to lie. ¬†To show no emotion when you start to cry.

Ricky…no. ¬†No, I know you hit a three last night. ¬†That was great, but it’s too late. ¬†Stop it. ¬†Ricky, change this face.¬† Be happy.¬† Enjoy!

Next up we play we play the Spurs, beginning a six game run that continues with the Raptors, Pistons, Warriors, Bulls and Rockets. ¬†I’m no Nostradamus but I think we’re fucked.

GO WOLVES!
