Sick of Negative Twin Cities Media

I am sick of the Minneapolis/St. Paul media being unable to give any credit to the Minnesota Timberwolves and Kevin McHale. I don't understand why the media is unwilling to give the Timberwolves credit for getting the franchise back on the right track. These are the most telling signs that the Timberwolves are headed in the right direction:

1) The acquisition of Al Jefferson and his emergence as a bona-fide NBA Superstar.
2) The trade of OJ Mayo for Love and Miller. The jury is still out, but this trade has the potential to be a franchise changing move.
3) Getting rid of Marko Jaric and his bloated contract.
4) Filling the roster with "good guys."

In my estimation, the Minnesota Timberwolves are on the right track and will be a playoff caliber team next year. At that point, The Twin Cities Media will have to give credit where credit is due. In the meantime, I am going to go out and buy Timberwolves Tickets for this weekends game.
