Now, before anyone starts Tiger Woods fist-pumping their way around their house, here’s a quick message from this article’s unofficial sponsor, Lee Corso:

That’s right. If your like me, and feel that a players-only meeting could greatly assist in cleaning up MN’s current shit show of a situation, please pump the breaks on any premature celebrations.

As you’ll see below, according to at least three members of the Wolves organization, the proverbial come-to-Jesus come-to-Jimmy meeting did not occur.

Unreal. This entire saga continues to pump out curveballs at a higher rate than baseball’s postseason.

Anywho, at this particular time, as for whether or not a meeting of any sorts occurred, who the hell knows? Not me. That’s for damn sure.

In conclusion, if this entire rollercoaster ride has you feeling frustrated, don’t worry. You’re not alone. Even the normally mild-mannered¬†Gorgui Dieng appears to be a little pissy:

I like that intensity.

You heard the man, Dane. Keep his name out of your mouth.
