Wolves Updates 11/16From Mike Max/WCCO:
1) The word is Eddie Griffin is getting an earful and some creative signage on the road for his off the court problems.
It should be against the rules to write something like that without a picture or something more specific to illustrate what that means. Is it cardboard signs? Hand gestures? What exactly are people saying?
2) If you're wondering what Timberwolves veterans may be perceived as potential problems, keep an eye on Ricky Davis.
The organization doesn't appear to mind as they've made Davis a focal point of the team in terms of promotion. It's hard to avoid all the attention they're putting into his Get Buckets Brigade.
Coach Casey on how he feels after the win over Portland:
"Unbelievable," coach Dwane Casey said. "Everything smells different, tastes different. The enthusiasm in practice [is greater]. Plus it sells what you're trying to do. It reinforces it, whether it's offensive execution, defensive execution. The guys don't look at you and think, 'Well, we did that last night, Coach, and it didn't work.' "
Among this year's rookies, Craig Smith is ranked #6 in scoring (8.3 ppg) while Randy Foye is at #10 (5.3 ppg).
