Wolves Updates 4/22

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
They say winning cures everything, but when the Wolves kept losing, individual agendas festered. Some players paid to be key contributors weren't happy with their roles. They openly wondered whether they might be better fits elsewhere...

From Jim Souhan/Star Tribune:
It is time for us to stop blaming McHale for the Wolves' problems. All McHale has done is meet the standards of his employer and continue behavior that has been generously rewarded.

Taylor -- once considered a franchise savior who would make Minnesota a better place by buying the Twins or Vikings -- deserves all of the blame now, for having no plan.

Ira Winderman/Sun-Sentinel on Kevin McHale, Larry Bird, and Danny Ainge:
Now, their front-office leadership has come into such question that a trio of All-Stars might be better served by severing their ties to this Celtics connection.

From Charley Walters/Pioneer Press:
Some Timberwolves season-ticket holders who paid premium prices for their seats are upset that newcomers seem to be getting preferential treatment and perks at discount prices.

From Mike McFeely/Fargo-Moorhead Forum:
The only option remaining, the only way the Wolves can blow things up and start rebuilding in a meaningful manner, is to deal Garnett. He could bring draft picks and a competent veteran body or two.
