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.

Wow.

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!

      The other boats I've owned had the bow roller positioned so the roller hits the keel when the boat is snubbed up, not the bow eye.

      New 2020 1875 Pro Guide. Helix 12 Mega SI graph. Can't read bottom when up on plane. I was going to adjust the transducer and this is what I found. Isn't the first rule in transducer placement to put it where there is "clean", undisturbed water flow?? It is below the bottom of the boat, maybe too far. It's a side imaging transducer so I feel the riggers wanted it close to the center of the boat. Where have others placed a side imaging transducer and have it read bottom when up on plane? I don't think you can move it closer to the center line. If you move it to the left of it's current position, the is the power strake in the front 1/3 of the boat. Any help is appreciated!!

      New 2020 boat. Livewell is leaking into the boat. Upon further review I found the leak. It's on the white fitting of the recirculation system where the water goes back into the livewell. I'm sure the rigger broke the little nipple on the right side when he installed the fuel/water separating filter as the gray gas line is right there. My question is where does the tubing from the little nipple go? The front livewell?

      Hi all. I am currently at Rush Lake near Perham at Four Seaons Resort. We’ve been here three days and have caught basically nothing. Can anyone give me some advice on walleyes here? Where to go and good baits for this lake? I’ll take any advice on any type of fish you might experience with on this lake. Never been here before.....

      Has anybody used these Felpro washers? My kid's Corollas oem washer is coated aluminum. This Felpro is a synthetic material. I mistakenly ordered it from Rock Auto. Not a big loss if I chuck them and get the oem ones. OEM on the left. Felpro on the right.

      I have TWO new Adirondack Chair and Table sets available for immediate sale. Both sets include two chairs and a ceramic-top table. One set also includes a pair of matching footrests.
      These sets are constructed of weather-resistant Canadian cedar which will last many years. The chair frames and armrests use 2 x 6 and 2 x 8 lumber making them the sturdiest Adirondack chairs available. They are also coated with a minimum of two coats of premium deck/furniture stain and assembled using only rust-proof coated deck screws.

      The chairs are designed to accommodate most individuals from petite to XXXL and have a contoured seat and back so you can comfortably sit in these for hours. All edges and sitting surfaces are rounded and sanded smooth for added comfort.
      These are available for immediate pick-up in the Grand Rapids area ... or I can deliver within a 15 mile radius at no charge. Delivery beyond 15 miles of Grand Rapids is also available for a nominal charge.

      Full Set - $800:
      - 2 Adirondack Chairs
      - 2 Matching Footrests
      - 1 Matching Ceramic-topped Side Table

      Chair/Table Set - $600
      - 2 Adirondack Chairs
      - 1 Matching Ceramic-topped Side Table

      These are available as sets only. However I can build separate pieces to your order.
       
      Please PM me for questions or with orders. First come, first served. New orders typically take 3 or 4 weeks.
