The worst of the Northwest Division for many years

6 posts in this topic

With the lottery balls bounces last night I believe the future of the northwest division changed substantially. I really think the wolves will be the worst team in the division for a number of years.

Just look at who is here now:

Utah: Boozer and Williams plus AK47 and Okur....a young team

Denver: Iverson with a few good years left plus Carmelo finally getting a full year together, decent frontcourt of Camby, KMart, Nene

Portland: Back to back rookie of the years in Roy and Oden, Allstars Zach Randolph and Jamaal Magloire, other tradeable frontcourt assets (LaFrentz, or Magloire) for better guards, D. Miles, Martell Webster, Lemarcus Aldridge...they are still young

Seattle: Rashard Lewis, Ray Allen, Kevin Durant...these guys should try to play at a quick pace and get lots of shots...they need help in the paint though (Fortson and Wilcox)

T-Wolves: Garnett and a bunch of overpaid stiffs, Foye...old crappy team, yuck

Agree/Disagree?

I agree. Here's how I would rank them:

1. Utah

2. Denver

3. Seattle

4. Portland

5. T'Pups

Everyone of those teams except the Wolves are going in the right direction.

The question is: Will either Seattle or Porland be able to afford these draft picks after their first contract is done?

With Seattle, the team's location is in jeopardy, and their font office makes the T Wolves look like the envy of the league.

Portland I think has much more potential to hold on to their pick, as the Blazers are the only profesional team in the city, and one with a very proud history (aside from the last 4-5 years).

Either way, with Portland and Seattle, you may have a similiar case of having one star that takes up the largest chunk of the payroll, so a mediocre supporting squad is eventually brought in.

With Denver, I wonder how long Carmello and Iverson will stay together. They just didn't click this year . . .we'll see if that changes.

As for Utah, never count a Jerry Sloan coached squad out of anything. Perhaps the most underrated (and loyal!) coaches in the NBA

i pretty much agree with the whole post except the blazers wont have back to back ROY's. i think durant is gonna be the rookie of the year as oden will be raw, and durant is such a pure, phenomonal scorer

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
