Adelman supports Barea for speaking up after Wolves loss


Posted Apr 24 2012 4:34PM

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Rick Adelman says he did not have a problem with J.J. Barea's comments that some Minnesota Timberwolves didn't care enough after a recent loss.

Without naming names, Barea blistered some teammates after the Wolves blew a 21-point lead and lost to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. The veteran guard said there weren't enough players in the locker room who cared about the outcomes of games.

Adelman said after practice Tuesday he supports players speaking up when they see something they don't like.

The Wolves have dropped 12 of their last 13 games and have dealt with major injuries. They have won one game in the last three Aprils combined, and Adelman says the culture around the team must change.
