2014 Draft


Scott K

Recommended Posts

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.

      I wasn't asking you anything leech, it was for papadarv. He talks about it in another thread running smooth vs chipper blades ( you should look it up). So my question to him was basically how much tinkering did it take to get the right angle and shims to work is all.

      Huum?  You:  I modified an old mora hand auger a couple of years ago to a drill which works well but still has shaver blades on it. Did it take much to switch over to chipper blades? Me: If you look at his pictures above.  He took the shaver blades and ground teeth into them  to make more of chipper blades.  He didn't switch to chipper blades. He made his own out of shaver blades.   Or am I missing your question?

      You into the sauce again Leech?

      Pretty straight forward for me in the light line category: Berkeley Micro Ice in 2, 3, or 4 lb test has served me very well.  There’s a reason stores sell out of it earlier than other line, even pre-Covid.

      You do good work that's for sure PD. I'm wondering though,  I modified an old mora hand auger a couple of years ago to a drill which works well but still has shaver blades on it. Did it take much to switch over to chipper blades? These have shims under them which I suppose it's getting out drilling and perhaps trying with or without the shims to find the right angle..

      There was a more in-depth article about this fish in the Star Tribune on Thanksgiving.  They broke through 100 yards of skim ice at the access to get to open water.  The air temperature was 18 degrees.   They were primarily ripping large soft plastics like bulldawgs and medussas, which imitate ciscoes/tulibees.

      Haven't gotten this one stuck yet.  Does a great job of pulling my 8x12 Aluma Lite skid house.  Will be doing a lot more exploring with it this winter as long as conditions are decent.   The "ice road" out of Spring Bay last year was really just a packed trail made by a couple friends of mine pulling their skid houses with 4 wheelers and snowmobiles.  To my knowledge no one is plowing roads onto the ice on the west end.   IMO, not having miles and miles of ice roads on LV is a blessing for walleye populations.  LOTW had over 2.8 million hours of ice fishing time.

      How is the ice for walking conditions on the East side?  From McKinley Park or Stuntz Bay to Ely Island?  Must be close to walkable.
