2014 Draft


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.

Never like players who play average and test off the charts at the combine so they have "unlimited potential"

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.

      The mouth of the creek is quite a ways downstream from the landing, and you’ll have to cross several peoples’ docks. Entire stream is surrounded by private property. Sure, you can technically legally access the stream, but why would you want to bother with the headache of dealing with landowners that DON’T want you there? Stream is small enough to step across in most places, it’s very weedy, and lot’s of overhanging brush. Not to mention, below average at best numbers of small trout!   You want easy access? Buy a Wisconsin license! Right across the river in Pierce County alone, there’s hundreds of miles of public easements on trout streams that are ten times better than anything Minnesota has to offer!

      Pike suckers are about 3½ inches long.  Walleyes really like them in the fall and early winter.  Caught my fish in 13-15 FOW drifting slowly.  Good solid bites.

      Got up Thursday evening to rain and pretty heavy wind Friday morning had us holding off on putting the boat in the water. Fished briefly Friday evening at sunset and picked up an 18" and a couple smalls. Fishing was decent Saturday morning but no real size, everything was 12-15". I had one that looked to be 17"ish flop off as I was trying to flip it into the boat. All the fish we caught were in 17-22'. We were fishing around about a 6' top but never caught anything on top. They appeared to be relating to the structure but not actually on it. Tried again Saturday evening for a couple hours and continued to pick up small walleye just like the morning. Sunday was windy again but we decided to slug it out for awhile and caught one decent perch and one small walleye. We fished similar depths and spots as Saturday but they weren't there. Marked them out in 35'+ but didn't feel like fighting the wind out in the big water so we called it quits around noon and never went back out(the wind never really did lay down or we may have tried again). Jig/minnow way outfished bottom bouncers/crawlers. Wish bottom bouncers would have worked better because it was tough to keep a jig down as fast as we were drifting and we never found a school to spot lock on.

      that last pic is great!!   Hazel is saying oppps!!!  
    • MikeG3Boat
      I am heading up there tomorrow.  Where do you guys get minnows up in the area?  Tower or Cook or down in Virginia?  I have never heard of pike suckers?  How large are they?  Are you guys fishing the East or West side of the lake?  Let me know.  I am thinking of fishing the East side tomorrow and then headed to the west side from Thursday thru Sunday.  Any help would be appreciated?  I am a newby to the area.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
