JJ Barea on the Timberwolves: ‘We Have a Lot of Guys That Don’t Care’

by April 24, 2012

JJ Barea teed off on his Timberwolves teammates after Minnesota’s latest defeat on Sunday night, accusing some of not caring enough, and called for major roster changes this summer. From the Star Tribune: “Before Sunday’s game with Golden State at Target Center, the Timberwolves announced forward Kevin Love would not play again this season. After the Wolves had blown a 21-point second-quarter lead in a 93-88 loss, Wolves guard J.J. Barea suggested some of his teammates might already have stopped caring. ‘We’ve got problems here,’ Barea said after his team shot 10-for-40 in the second half and struggled on defense. ‘We have a lot of guys that don’t care. On a basketball team, when you have a bunch of guys who don’t care, it’s tough to win games. We’re going to keep getting [losses] here until we get players that care about winning, about the team, about the fans.'”
