Timberwolves May or May Not Have a Manifesto

I understand that the Minnesota Timberwolves have a long range game plan, and it includes losing a fair number of games this year while a very very young team gains experience. But the hope is that they will be fun, hard-fought losses.

So you can imagine the visceral pain a Timberwolves fan has when they switch over to a late game against the Golden State Warriors to find that the Timberwolves are losing by 40, that Stephen Jackson somehow has 15 assists, or that the Timberwolves starters are a combined -90 in +/-, or that the team as a whole has 26 turnovers.

Brutal game. These things happen. But it is especially galling when a Timberwolves fan is watching the game, and a commercial comes on saying, essentially, "Hey, we know we aren't very good, but we have a plan," and then invites the fan to check out that plan at:

As of right now--the image below shows that plan. Hey, look! "Content". Sweet. That inspires confidence.

At least it's not totally blank?

Maybe it's supposed to be content, as in, "We're content to suck big, hairy donkey balls this year while we rebuild."
