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

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
