Timberwolves New Era

Recommended Posts

Rick

Minnesota sent Robert Covington and Jordan Bell to Houston, Keita Bates-Diop, Shabazz Napier to Denver and Andrew Wiggins plus a top 3 protected 1st round pick to Golden State.

 

Coming the Wolves way are DeAngelo Russell, Brooklyn’s lottery-protected 1st round pick, along with Evan Turner’s expiring contract, Malik Beasley, Juancho Hernangomez and Jarred Vanderbilt.

I like the trades. I'll give the T-Wolves a B+ here. 

 

D-Lo seems like a more natural basketball fit with Karl-Anthony Towns, aside from the fact that they appear to be best buds. I like Minnesota’s mini-makeover. Malik Beasley is a useful player, and they have some good spacing between him, Russell, and Towns.

 

However, if this is finally the team KAT wants, he’s gonna have to start producing some more wins.

 

I'll give em a few games to settle in and see what they do.

Glad Wiggins is out. Now KAT has a buddy to be disrespected with. 👍  Does this buddy play defense by chance?

Would be kinda cool if the Wolves were loosing 182 to 201. The O/U could be pushing 400 in no time,,,how sweet!

I think they are in range of that 201...  it's the 182 that they're still quite a ways from.🙄

 

I wonder if Russell is a bit of a low-watt bulb:  So Russell decides not to come to the wolves in the offseason.  Now he does come but wrings out of us 2 draft picks?

 

It's the equivalent of:

1.)  I get asked by you guys to join you fishing.

2.)  Before starting, I give your minnows/bucket out to some stranger before hopping in the boat...  "Let's Fish."  (It would seem even if I am a really good fisherman, I've probably decreased our chances of catching anything in the future...)

I don't think it quite worked that way. The two teams did a sign and trade. D-lo didn't have any say in the matter.

 

As for his defense...we will have to see.

When he signed with GS he did so under the thought of playing next to Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and under Kerr with the thought in a year Klay would be back.  GS signed him to bridge a gap and provide an asset to trade if it didn't go as planned.

Man do they look good tonight fun to see some spark in  the team again. Maybe with any luck they figured out the solution chemistry  to winning and get back to the playoffs. Good to see Wiggins gone he just didn't have that spark you want to see.

Well admittingly I did not watch the whole game last night but I did watch the last 9 minutes and will say I was not impressed with Dlo and his lazy passes!  I do like the looks of the new squad compared to what we were continuing to roll out night in and night out!  I have said this before that I sure hope they compete and stay aggressive and fun to watch but I hope they don't do too much winning at this point as I would rather them get more of a chance to get a top pick in the draft since it is not projected to be a very deep draft.

Tough game last night having KAT out definitely didn't help there defense at all but they have to work on that for sure. Communication and player responseabilitys will slowly start to form  in time I hope.

This group has to play together for a while. You could almost see them thinking too much about their assignments from the 3rd quarter on. That's death in the NBA.

 

It will take a while for them to instinctually do what is needed. Until they jell, expect a fair amount of losing.

 

This jelling process actually works out well for them. Losing keeps their odds up for a higher pick.

 

If Rosas has this right...we're going to see a different team next year.

Who are the top draft prospects? Sure seems like a weak draft to me. I don’t follow college basketball at all, but still know who the top 5 guys usually are. This year, I can’t name a single player!

      I've never been big into the fishing community, but I started spearing this season and I've fallen in love.
      Though, I've seen a few threads where people have spoken out against spearing which I understand, but what's the reason behind some of the flak?
      I've received a couple sneers when asking bait shops if they have decoys, and just a general distaste towards spearing.
      I mean no disrespect towards anyone, I've had way more positive experiences. Just wondering about some of the negative attitudes towards spearing.
      Thoughts?

      Let’s hear about your 2020 projects up at the lake. At my daughter’s request, I am going to rebuild the outhouse to “higher standards.” What do you plan to do?

      Getting a MinnKota Precision charger for my new boat, a 1875 Pro Guide. It will have a 24 volt Ulterra on the bow and 24 volt Vantage on the stern. The batteries are group 31 AGMs. I've always had 10 amp per bank chargers in the past. I will be spending more time on the water with this boat so draining the batteries down more. Is the 15 amp per bank better, worse or no difference? I am leaning towards the 15 amp for quicker charging. Getting a 3 bank so the starting battery will be topped off also.

      After going 9 wins, 3 losses and 2 ties since Dec. 7th the Gophers Hockey team sits atop the Big Ten Standings and relevant again for the NCAA tourney sitting at 16 in the pairwise rankings.
       
      They are tied with Penn State in the Big Ten Standings with each having 36 pts.  A huge battle is coming between them this weekend.
       
      Another great thing in the race for 1st place in the Big Ten is that Penn State's Big Ten season is done after this battle. While the Gophers have 2 more games against Michigan, who sits with 33 pts, the following week to accumulate points.
       
      There are two more teams at 31 points. So the Gopher's last 4 games in the Big Ten may determine not only who wins the Big Ten Title, where they are now in the drivers seat, but may determine if they even make it to the NCAA's.
       
      Of course there's always the Big Ten Championship Tourney which produces an automatic bid.
       
      What do you think folks?

      Just reminding everyone, your current license expires in 11 days.  Thanks to leap year, you get one bonus day to fish this year.
      2020-21 licenses will be going on sale today, according to the DNR.
      (CO's are usually out in force on 3/1...)

      A canoe requires a “J” stroke (to compensate for paddling on one side) whereas a kayak has a balanced left and right stroke that better aids in tracking and balance. Canoe paddles are heavy. Kayak paddles are ergonomic and light!
      AND
      What is the difference between canoeing and kayaking?

      Great site! So I have an 18yrold Eskimo Baracuda with the Turbo bottom assembly .It has always ran great but that Turbo is a Beast and quite agressive . Ive had to have the flites welded 3 times over the years were the flite meets the shaft and has never seemed to make any difference on cutting . However, the last time it was welded was close to the bottom and we ddint notice that the plastic gromet that centers the Spike was melting 😳, sooo we just put it back in place
      and centered the best we could and let the plastic cool. I used it a few times after that and it cut "Alright".....But.. now it bounces around like a four year old in  a bounc-house . So my question is, is it worth it to just put in a new Spike and some new blades ? Or should I just get a new Qantum 10" bottom?

      In ely shag has some giant pike as does burntside. My buddies speared one pine mostly as it has lots of small sized pike. To blame spearers is total BS !!! Try talking to people to inform them why they should release big pike.   I watch way more big pike die from tip up fishing than spearing. That’s in Central Minnesota as well. Most the spearers I know are very picky on what fish they will spear. I watched a group of young guys catch 20 pike most of them were over 25 inches from what I could see they were in the limits as the had 10-12 guys but it was sad to see those larger pike being taken. Don’t blame spearers for missing big pike as it’s everyone.

      Haven’t tried them myself but if your going with a portable and snowmobile and it’s a bust you can pick up and move quick. I’m heading up on the 4th and was going to try jumping the rock piles. Let us know how it goes for you and best of luck!

      Well most lakes with muskie in them are non native to the lake and are stocked. I think they should do away with that also.

      yes you can and they can cover the holes/marks...   I have seen it done..  very interesting...  and there are replicas too...
