Shut Up, Glen Taylor

When you own an NBA team that's one of the worst in the league, can't draw for crap, and can pretty much directly trace its misfortune to years and years of bad decisions from management, it's always a swell idea to rip the best player in franchise history. To a man who showed impeccable loyalty to the organization for years longer than any other league superstar would have, and who has since moved on to lead his new team to the best record in the NBA.

Just sell the team already, Glen. Please. How big a disaster can things be in Minnesota when the best owner in town is Zygi Wilf?

Alright, I love reading you Steve and have for years now, but I heavily disagree with your assessment of Mr. Taylor.

It is true that the comment he made was idiotic, but he has been a great owner for the T-wolves over the years. He is the one owner in Minnesota who is willing to spend on his team, even if it means a loss of revenue. Can't say that for Pohlad or McCombs.

If he sold the team, there would be a good chance that it'd move. And after the North Stars and the threats leveled by the Twins and Vikings, I don't think that'd be a good situation
