Britt Robson of The Athletic joins the pod to discuss a myriad of topics, including where blame falls on a Minnesota Timberwolves team that just blew another fourth quarter lead to Orlando and currently sits at 3-10 — with no real end in sight. Topics today include:
- How did we get here?
- Does this bring Gersson Rosas’ entire plan into question?
- Why neither of us expects a coaching change anytime soon
- Where has Ryan Saunders missed the mark?
- Problems that are not limited to the Orlando loss
- Where the Orlando game went sideways — the end of game rotations; not calling a timeout after Jarred Vanderbilt’s rebound; not calling a timeout when Malik Beasley was out of position
- Debating the value of D’Angelo Russell’s recent play
- Is $60 million to KAT and DLo a bargain when bundled?

I also had a conversation with Atlanta Hawks writer, Glen Willis, in advance of the Wolves-Hawks playing Friday night at Target Center. We focus on the similar challenges of building around Trae Young and Karl-Anthony Towns.
