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.

      Well we’re back home and tired!   We tried to get lost as best we could in the Itasca/Cass counties area.  Looking for carry in accesses to kayak into duck hunting heaven. 😅  So was everyone else and they had jon boats with mud motors.   We had a great time despite some negative highlights that really affected everyone’s hunting.  We found a roost during scouting on Friday, along with a great campsite to stay.  The roost and campsite were 2 miles apart though.  We scoped out the closest spot we dared set up the following morning cuz, Don’t shoot the roost, right?  Paddling by 3:30 am we got our spot, not flushing too many birds out.  Sure enough a boat with 3 guys churns past us later and deep into the roost.     Sure enough again, birds blow out but settle back down.  We still think we’re in a good intercept spot with a convincing decoy spread laid out.   Low and behold, 8 minutes before legal shooting hours the three guys open up a barrage of shots that starts scattering everything to the wind.  Birds are whizzing by us but we hold our shots.  5 minutes to go and they open up again.  At 2 minutes to go the rest of the groups in the area start popping off.  Everything is flying high now and showing NO interest in decoys.  We have birds going over us but too darn high.  Not for everyone else though, they’re blasting at birds higher than the tree tops.  Sigh...   The three guys churn back by us maybe an hour into the day - limited out I’m sure.  We were the last ones back to the “carry in” access and were greeted by a group of 4 with 2 boats that scouted Friday also.  We know where each other were hunting.  They had that look on their face like they were expecting some answers.  That was enough for us to say “It wasn’t us!”     It was a civil conversation after that. Local guys, upset with the shenanigans as well.  Three groups were able to get just half a limit with the tough shooting after the blowout.  All pass shooting; nothing coming to the dekes.  Those birds are spooky and know their safe distances.  Such a difference than expected.   We put plenty of miles on the truck and about 15 miles paddling looking for Mecca.  It’s a tough game around there that needs some more time to figure out.  But it’s a fun area to look at.  Short of not coming back with limits of ducks, it was a good, long weekend.

      Several connected lakes also added to infested waters list The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of zebra mussels in Blandin Reservoir on the Mississippi River, abutting the city of Grand Rapids in Itasca County. Several lakes connected to the reservoir by a Mississippi River tributary are also being added to the infested waters list.  Itasca County invasive species staff contacted the DNR after finding zebra mussels on settlement samplers that were installed this spring near the public access on the east side of the reservoir. Settlement samplers are solid surfaces placed in the water that people can regularly check for attached zebra mussels. DNR invasive species staff confirmed zebra mussels on old saw logs and other logging relics throughout the reservoir. The Mississippi River splits near the reservoir, and a tributary connects several nearby lakes. Because of the connection, Lake Pokegama, Jay Gould Lake, Little Jay Gould Lake, and the Mississippi River from Lake Winnibigoshish to Mississippi Lake will also be added to the infested waters list. DNR invasive species specialists recently confirmed zebra mussels at several points in that stretch of the river. No zebra mussels were found in recent surveys of Lake Pokegama and Jay Gould Lake, but they will be added because they are closely connected to waters with confirmed zebra mussel populations. Following additional surveys and technical review, more distant connected waters may also be added to the infested waters list. To reduce the risk of spreading aquatic invasive species, activities like bait harvest, commercial fishing, and water appropriation are managed differently in infested waters. The DNR has already been in contact with some of the businesses that would be affected by this designation, along with the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe. The DNR appreciates the help and cooperation of Itasca County staff, who detected zebra mussels, notified the DNR and assisted with the follow-up investigation. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft and trailers of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees for at least two minutes or 140 degrees for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Zebra mussels can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species. More information is available at mndnr.gov/ais.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed reports of zebra mussels in Sauk Lake, near Sauk Centre in Todd County.  A resident on the northeast side of Sauk Lake contacted the DNR after finding numerous zebra mussels up to one-half inch in length on a boat lift being removed for the season. DNR invasive species staff found zebra mussels on rocks in the same area of the lake. Sauk Lake is downstream from Lake Osakis and the Sauk River to Guernsey Lake, where zebra mussels were previously confirmed.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed reports of zebra mussels in Big Pine Lake, just northwest of Mille Lacs Lake in Aitkin County.  A lake property owner contacted the DNR after finding four adult zebra mussels on docks and boat lifts being removed from the lake for the season. The DNR confirmed zebra mussels at that location and about a half-mile west of the original location. No zebra mussels were found during searches of the nearest public access and near an island on the lake.
