So now that the Wolves landed the #1 pick for the first time ever in what is called an excellent talent pool who do they take?  Towns or Okafor?  Towns is currently the overall better player but Okafor has such an upside and is a very polished inside scorer...So who do you think they should take and who do you think they will take?  I think they will go with Okafor.  Either way I am excited for the future of the Twolves!!!

I agree Okafor but truly I believe they will go with Towns. A lot of talent on that team and their future looks bright!

With the #1 pick this year, we will now have the 2013, 2014, and the 2015 #1 picks on our team. If we cant build onto that, this franchise is doomed.

 

I think Towns will fit what the team is trying to build, a young, athletic, defensive strong team. Okafor while he may be a little more polished on making shots under the basket, this isnt a real big asset in the NBA, his 2 foot jumpers will be contested a little more then in college.

We have some good young talent to develop, and I think that is what the team should focus on this offseason, getting coaches that can teach, and get the potential out of the young talent.

With Rubio, Shabazz, Wiggins, LaVine, Dieng, Brown, Bennett, and add in Towns (or whoever is the 2015 pick), we have some awesome talent, we just need some coaches to get that talent to shine in games.

 

If the team can stay healthy, and we get some good coaching, we could have a strong team for many years. I would like to see the Wolves dump Martin, and Pek, and let the young guys play. We have a lot of money tied up into these to often injured players, that take up our bench at the end of the season and force us to play with 8 guys. Rubio would be another that I would say should be on the trading block, if we can get something decent for him, we should get rid of him, but I would like to see what the Wolves shooting coaches can do with him since he is not playing in the Euro leagues this offseason.

 

This team has excitement written all over it, but being a MN team, it is descend for failure.

This will never happen but, get Okafor and trade everyone that they can except Wiggens to get Tyus Jones.  Rubio is mediocre in my eyes.  He's always hurt, can't shoot, turns to ball over too much and is slow, but he sure has some fancy passes.

Have to agree Rubio is hit and miss. And he defiantely has to work on his shooting. Have to agree on the passing freak doing that but misses a lot of other skills.

Leave it to the Wolves and screw up the first pick. I think they need Towns in the middle so they have some defensive presence. Pek would be good off the bench if he's on the team still, this might help him out getting less injured. I agree we should trade Rubio, hasn't done anything since being here, another point guard bust. Flip shouldn't be coaching, should be trying to get someone else that's more accomplished and there's a few names out there.
