Reaction to Garnett trade

20 posts in this topic

Obviously I'm not too happy KG's gone. One look at Bill Simmons' ESPN article explains it. The title of said article? "McHale adds another notch to his Celtics legacy" He basically said that in the last two years we traded our whole team for theirs for a bunch of crap players and a draft pick that we threw in once already.

I really like Jefferson, but how is the guy supposed to succeed in a loaded Conference and Division full of PFs? And replace a once in a lifetime guy like Garnett? Good luck. It's Troy Williamson all over again.

I'm not a fan of seeing him go. If McHale wouldn't have screwed up this team we wouldn't be talking rebuilding. The only team he knows how to trade with is Boston. He should have gone before KG. If he would have done his job and not given away all the picks we would have had a team around KG. Just sucks, no reason for me to go to games this year.

I'd like the deal better if we threw McHale in with Garnett

I would have to Agree, yet disagree. McHale is a IDOT. KG is a player that is not going to win a title in BOSTON. Just is not going to happen. Fact of the matter is, that he had the mind set that he was not getting anywhere.

T_WOLVES pushed him around and didnt get chit taken care off. It was a horrible deal. They beat around the bush. PUT A TEAM TOGETHER

He'll have a better chance there than here. Boston signed Ray Allen and still have Paul Pierce.

I agree. On top of that he's in the East now which is a little easier. It will still be tough but I think with those three they will be in the top five teams. I'll be watching him. I might watch a few wolves games but probably won't go to any this year. But I'll for sure watch when boston's on just to see KG.

Let's face it. We were not going to go very far with KG and his huge salary. We needed some new blood, and unfortunately KG had the oldest blood and it was his time, it's too bad we can't send McHale along with him. I'm sure he feels refreshed by joining a new team and sort of starting over. Sounds like we get 2 first round draft picks in the deal, one of them back from the Wally/Rick Davis trade.

Yep, sucks he's gone but it was time for him and his huge salary to leave. Now the Wolves will have lots of money down the road to bring in players. Thats what hurt the Wolves was he was making way too much money so they were very limited on signing players.

Should be a win win for everyone. KG goes somewhere for a new start while he still has some legs left. Wolves free up salary, add some new young players and shake the roster up. Hudson is bought out so we can say goodbye to that bad penny. We might not win 40 this year but we should have an improved team two years from now between draft picks and free money for trades. KG is not gone, he is just wearing green!

If you saw the press conference, you saw KG with a smile like he USED to have years ago with the Wolves. I haven't seen him look that happy in a long time. He even showed a bit of the sense of humor that we used to see in his younger days...great to see. No matter what you think of the trade, I say good for KG. He seems to be happy with the move.

The Wolves need to start over and that's definitely what they're doing. They do have some decent young talent. So hopefully we can get rid of McHale soon and start to build around the talent we have.

I would have rather seen the Suns deal or the Boston deal that was offered on draft day but, I agree with most, we needed to change it up and maybe this Jefferson kid will turn into a real deal. I also agree, the other Kevin has to go!!!!!!!

I think there is a good chance that KG will be back in a few years as well.

i like this trade for both teams. it was time for kg to move on, and they really got alot for him. wether all these new guys stay or become trade bait for some one else. and 2 first round picks. they should have a good young nucleus for a few years and while the west is stacked, they are also getting older(except utah).

i grew up a bird fan, so i like to see the celtics return to relivance in the nba. wow, what a team! i don't even know who the other two guys will be, but allen/ticket/pierce is a lineup that will give every team nightmares

I was listening to KFAN yesterday and some guy called in who was all but in tears. He's selling every article of Wolves stuff he has except the Garnett jersey.

After three days of distraction on this whole affair, I wondered how many Americans were killed in Iraq yesterday? I have no idea because I was too wrapped up in the trade. It's entertainment. Professional athletics is nothing more than a distraction for people away from their day to day grind called life. Time to move on folks. He going to make around $100 MILLION over the next 5 years to play basketball. I make $40,000 a year an am wondering how I'll cover my 19% health insurance increase. He will make more in 6 games than most people will make in their lifetime. Good for him. There's someone out there dumb enough to pay him.

Sorry about the rant.

Exactly...watch the game...if the Wolves stink, change the channel, if they have a good game watch the whole thing, have a beverage and when it's over cheer or cry, but move on to the next thing in life....I would rather the home teams have good records, but it is entertainment. That is all it is and creates good rant on the FAN or the FM board.

You hit the nail on the head. Why Taylor didn't can him after the Joe Smith fiasco is a mystery. Firing Flip was also a big mistake.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.
    • DLD24
      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
