2014 Draft

Well with the rigged lottery out of the way, we can star talking about who will be drafted, or if Love will be traded for the number 1 pick?

I didnt watch the draft, but it sure looked as though LaVine wasnt all that thrilled to become a Wolf. Great Pick there Flip! Way to draft a player that swears in disgust as he is walking up to the podium that he was drafted by the MN Timberwolves!

Im not so sure it was in disgust. It appeared to me he was relieved and shocked to be actually drafted. Its funny how negative nelly's sure take the negative spin on things.

Having said that, the Timberwolves suck and should be relocated.

I have watched the video a few times, it sure didnt look like excitement to me! Of course he is back pedaling his comments, he doesnt want his new fan base to hate on him already!

Never said he was excited. Said relieved and shocked. I dont believe he thought he would have been drafted there.

Apparently the Wolves told he and his agent they would pick him if he were there at 13. Dont you think they would have said something to the Wolves had it not been a place he "wanted to go"?

Basketball players are all primadonnas anyway. Look at Love as a prime example.

I am not too thrilled with our pick at 13 with what was left on the board but with getting Glenn Robinson III I am excited with that pick as I think he can be a contributor to this team. Was listening to Bilas and Colin Cowherd this morning talk about him and Bilas said he is young and had freshman numbers comparable with those of Napier but he has a higher ceiling and could be scary good in the next few years. I might agree that he could be good but I think this dude would have been better served by doing what Napier did and stay in school and get playing time rather than waste away on an NBA bench.

Glad we spent that pick on a guy who didn't even start in college lol. And when your happy about something, especially about being drafted much higher than expected you don't drop your head on a table and say f*** me with a look of disgust on your face. He did not want to come here. His agent told him exactly how he was going to cover his a**. "Say you were just in shock" crazy

If he is their SG of the future, where does that put them with their deal with Golden State? I've heard the talks are just stalled and this deal could very well still happen. Do they try to play Klay Thompson at SF?

He would probably gets included in the deal or he backs up Klay and becomes a tradable asset or when Klay doesn't resign he steps up...

Well, the Wolves already said no to giving up the #13 pick in the deal with GS so I'm guessing they won't include him in the deal for Love.

Yeah but they said no at a time they didn't know who they would end up with and they probably figured they could get that deal even after the draft so why not wait...in fact I think they won't deal Love until september/oct

Anyone else think Zach Levine is destined to spend some time in the D-League this year? Seemed like the prototypical "potential" pick. Even if he pans out it probably won't be for 2-3 years down the road.

Hopefully im wrong but I see a wasted pick

I dont think so. He is probably this years best slam dunker. He is very athletic. I see him pairing up with Rubio nicely. There will be a spot for him on the bench. I can see him getting about 15-20 minutes a game for the first half of the season, then adjust for how he is playing.

He's got the tools to be really good, but the fact that he averaged 9 ppg at UCLA last year and didn't even start kind of worries me. I know he was playing behind the coach's son, but talent should ultimately win out.

      Last year was the first time that I remember seeing any plowed roads out of the west end. I agree about chains making a huge difference on ATVs, but not if the snow is deep. Sleds ride on the snow. ATVs need to get down to the ice or packed snow.   It has been a while since I have heard of any guides setting out sleepers. If one did, they would need to do some good advertising to make it worth it.

      First year I put it out I went 3 miles out from the closest plowed road.  Used the lake snowmobile trail for a few miles, then packed my own trail before dragging it out.  Slush could be a problem but you could do the same thing (pack a trail with your sled the night before and let it freeze overnight).  Portables are much easier to move, but not as comfortable as a wood house.   Vermilion Ice Conditions - heard there was still open water on Big Bay Thursday and Friday.  Not sure if I will go out 7 days from now.

      Happy Holidays Muskies !! I've been off sight for a long while. My Son died in July at 45 from a heat stroke while working in Knoxville Tn. I've had a hard time with that.  We did not make our fall trip to Rainy Lake, and the effects of it all are felt now.  How was the fall ?  A friend with a guide service there told me I didn't miss anything, and the lack of post tend to support that. We appreciate all post and fishing chatter shared on this forum and especially all you share. Best wishes for a great winter. CHEERS to all !!
