MCHALE'S WORST MOVE EVER??? LETS HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS

Recommended Posts

bgreen82

my worst kevin mchale move of all time is going to have to be his collection of extremely awful 2nd rd picks considering how many first rounders they lost. until last year they have gotten littorally nothing from the draft, period.

Trading for Marko Jaric, drafting Ebi Nubi, signing T-Hud to a big contract, The Candyman at center, the list goes on and on.

I'd have to agree with Marko Jaric. Gave up Sam Cassel and more importantly a first round draft pick that we may lose this year. How many more years are we stuck with Jaric?

Jaric and T-Hud are chewing up a lot of cap space riding the pine this year.

Not having a scouting dept. or person who knows how to recognize talent. There's been a lot of talent that he past up on and those players went on to be more productive players than what we got from our 1st rounders. He(McHale)is a one man show that doesn't have a clue what to do, where to look, or where to go. He had Rex Chapman here last year to help find/recognize talent and he's gone now. See a pattern. Wonder how long Hoiberg will last until McHale feels threatened by him.

Hands down the Joe Smith trade. I mean, we are still feeling the effects of that and always will until the last players from those draft classes leave the league.

Runner Up: Jaric-Cassell. Straight up lopsided, and then you throw in a 1st round draft choice?

What McHale seems to not understand, is that this isn't the talent-loaded 80's Celtics who never needed the last pick in the draft and could throw it away. We don't have that kind of talent, he doesn't make shrewd enough moods, and we don't have Red Auerbach coaching the teams.

His strategies have failed over and over but he still has a job? How? mad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gif I believe that any timberwolves fan with just a lukewarm interest in the team and some understanding of basketball could have done a better job as GM. A computer, doing autodrafting like on video games could have done a better job, someone who doesn't know basketball but went through it with a Laissez-faire attitude could have done a better job.

He is trashing his U of M and NBA player reputations with his horrible and lackadaisical effort as a GM.

In the words of Garnett, "Where's McHale?"

Its said that you say allt his stuff about mccale. Fact of the matter is, if KG would have taken a pay cut to be able to get a few better players around him, we would have a great team. Its pretty tuff to get players around oyu, when half or your cap, goes to one player.

Why should Garnett have to take a pay cut because the people in the front office can't get their heads out of their butts?

Garnett is the Timberwolves. Why would you punish him for being the franchise?

With all the ill advised moves made by McHAle, they could have a better team. They wouldn't need to waste their $ on James and Jarovik.

There is nothing that we can really do. Fact of the matter is, that they are not getting it done and they need to figure it out before the whole thing goes into the tank

Once an NBA contract is signed it cannot be renegotiated or terminated. You cannot cut a signed player either. Even if Garnett wanted to give some of his salary to other players it couldn't be done legally. We all know where under the table and whisper deals have gotten this team in the past.

Fact of the matter is, KG is the best player in the game of Basketball. I was at the game tonight, courtside, and the guy was shooting the ball lights out. AWESOME

OMG I'm jealous. KG's best game since his 20-20 against the Kings in Game 7.

Bassnspear, tell me he's not worth the money after sitting courtside for a game like that!

To a certain extent I agree with you about the contract, but the fact of the matter is, every one of us would have signed on the dotted line for a contract like that (We've got kids to feed, right laugh.gif). At least he has maintained and improved his productivity after signing it. Most guys are garbage after signing a new contract.

KG deserves that money. he is the reason any of those seats get filled, and dont tell me they cant put a team around him. they spent good coin on spree, cassell and kandi man to make a good team. they just all turned out bad after that first year. well kandi all along, what a waste of a perfect center body. its the jarics and hudsons of the team.

      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.

      Seeing a lot of greenheads and swans around the metro.  It seems every bit of open water is packed.  I took advantage of some opportunities to film some trumpeters and put a little holiday cheer to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQu99MI1Y6Y

      I found a old trolling motor at a garage sale for like $5-10 bucks, cut the head and motor off of it and used the pole and bracket to clamp on the ducer on my last canoe.

      It should be able to I can shoot through my kayak if I wanted. Canoe should be the same. There great units. Good price and a solid fish finder

      I just saw this online.  What would be the best way to mount the transducer?  Could it shoot through the floor of the canoe?   Humminbird® PiranhaMax™ 4 Sonar PT Portable tranducer, case, rechargeable battery and charger Tilt-mount base makes the screen easy to view 256-color 4.3" 480 x 272 screen DualBeam explores down to 600 ft. 2,400-watt peak-to-peak power output Featuring a portable transducer, portable case, rechargeable battery and a wall charger, Humminbird's PiranhaMax 4 Sonar with PT delivers a compact package for on-the-go fishing adventures.

      Anybody know anything about this lake? Just north of Ely.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Welcome Rick! I use a Humminbird piranha max 4 (non DI). I mounted it in a vexilar Genz case and I use the genz soft pack on it to help protect the screen from scratches. I used it all last summer in the kayak and it worked PERFECT. I use the humminbird suction cup mount and it works well. Even used it on a smaller aluminum boat and it never came off even on plane. This setup to me is ideal for anyway wanting a cheaper rig that works very well IMO.
    • Rick Bancroft
      I want to set up the canoe with a portable transducer so that it can be used in the boundary waters and portaged, etc.  Anyone have ideas on the set-up and what sonar would be a good choice?   I probably don't want too hi-tech so I can conserve battery life.
