Reaction to Garnett trade

Recommended Posts

Scott M

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.

      Set up deeper on rock reef for the rest of the weekend and only managed one fish (26" eye), missed a couple others. We wanted to stay deeper due to all the traffic on the lake. We did enjoy a good time at Fishing for Ducks, we saw a nice walleye pulled through the ice but it only measured 27.5". Talk about a bummer for that guy!

      Roads to the islands always need to be taken very cautious and I would encourage going with someone who knows the area..  I believe they were shutting down the highway H extension due to this recent weather we just got?  Plenty of fish and opportune situtations in the bay.

      Another crazy busy weekend is in the books. I really enjoy giving out my fishing/what's happening on the lake reports but finding the time has been tough. To say its a grind is a understatement.
       I can tell you again as the season winds down I'm never ready for it to end, as I truly love being out there in my trucks, moving houses, plowing the  hillmen highway, giving advise, helping other fishermen when they do something silly, Driving into a snow bank, dropping there gun down a hole or any other important object like there keys. Every year all the workers seem to get a little grumpy as fighting mother nature, going from sun up to sunset takes a toll physically and mentally. It also seems I ruffle a few feathers every year and its never my intent  so I have to chalk it up as a long season. If I stepped on anyone's toes it sure was not planned or intended as all most every day plan a turns to plan b and c. Mother nature dictates where I go sometimes as well as any plowed roads that can make our job easier. The cookie shuffle worked very well this year as I tell everyone that gets lost in my maze of trails. I'm not a road engineer.
       Man did we get overwhelmed with wheel house's this past weekend, any fish coming from southwest had to go threw a gauntlet of hooks to find my fishermen.
       I had two wheel house's  that I set up at the end of the hillmens highway and was surprised how bad they did. I guess I should of went south not east? The nw road has gotten to much to maintain, there's one lone house out that way that will need a new trail made .
       Its all started Thursday as jonnny boy and I prepped for the weekend with Joe, Zack, Adam and   his crew arriving fro florida. Zacks birthday wish was fishing red lake, they had a blast. They went to westwind where they enjoyed a fish fry, plus they took home a few fish with a couple even getting a ride in florida fish house as we moved a small distance to put it on fresh ice for there last night sunday. Last year when they came we landed on the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie mother load? I think  they had dreams for a year of repeating that. Every year is different and again this year was no exception.
       Ben who proposed in old Minnesota to Shawna 8 years ago were in old Minnesota with there two adorable kids. Louie the fishing machine and his little sister Willa plus there friend Nelli.
       They had a blast also with Shawna getting a elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie to boot. They also managed to take home a nice batch of upper red lake walleyes.
       Hunter and his two buddies were in north Dakota. It was slow but they also managed to take home a batch of fish.
       Charlie and Rizzo were in montana , They were very serious about there fishing and went home with there 8.
      Jeromy and his gal were in north Carolina Saturday, sunday . They also managed to get there 8.
       Sunday was a very tough day as we had all 5 houses re rented. I was planning on moving all of them so we battled mother nature the whole time as a ne wind with 2 inches of snow made it impossible to see. At one point I was getting sea sick as I struggled to see, With the sky, horizon and the lake all the same color. wow what a struggle.
       It took us  7 1/2 hours but we got every thing cleaned, moved.
       Mother nature has given us another bout of snow so tomorrow I will let every one know how the houses did the last two days as its time to check the fluids and fire up the fleet

      Figured I should report back... I fished prime time on Saturday morning and Saturday evening. No action. It didn't help that I forgot to grab the vexilar on the first outing, but it didn't help to have it on the second outing either! ha! Marked a few but couldn't get them to bite. Used a GPS chip to punch some holes over structure, but when I came back with the vexilar, they weren't quite as deep as I hoped. Thanks for the pointers BrianF

      Around this time last year this thread was started by @Royal_Dutchman. I got my trip planned for April but by the look of the extended forecast it's not looking to promising, especially compared to where it was at last year on Feb 23rd. 
    • osok
      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck. 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.
