BG is playing insane so far this year. Nice to see. I like that combo of him and Drummond (who has really come into his own offensively). The talking heads on NBA radio don't think it is going to work, but I do. I think they play off each other nicely. That team needs to get rid of Reggie Jackson. Apparently the guy is a drama queen and head case that gives up? I have seen him play in the past, but not this year. If he's all pissy, get rid of him and start Ish Smith. He's a better point guard anyway.

If y'all are either BG fans or Pistons fans in general, I suggest y'all stop praising him or the team for now... right on cue once more, the Nets beat the Pistons tonight, lol.  :lol

DERRICK. ROSE.

I never want to hear Minny fans, and media members bitch again about signing D.Rose last year, or re-upping this year on a vet's minimum. Dude plays his heart out every night, and finally got something huge. Really happy for him. Great win for Minnesota, and to watch that game, and watch with how much energy the team played -- it was great. KAT was no slouch either with 28/16, and Wigs popped for 19 in his first game back.

So, I was tempted to go to the Wolves-Warriors game tonight. But then it dawned on me -- top dollar to watch my team get slaughtered probably isn't a good investment of funds. I'll just watch it on TV and pray for a miracle. Go Wolves!

I always liked D. Rose. He had a few rough years but he is still a pretty good player. I think the Knicks and the Cavs didn't utilize him properly (even though it seems he didn't put much effort either).

Good win against an undefeated team in the Bucks last night for the C's.  Holy 3 pointers though.

My guess is - Warriors 135   Wolves 112

And thats with the Warriors pulling the starters after the third quarter. I love my Wolves, and they always seem to play well against the Warriors, but with the Butler drama, and the Warriors playing at an incredibly high level this early in the season, I don't have a lot of faith in the Pack tonight.

The obvious reply is something about Draymond not playing. Which is probably legitimate, he's a huge part of both their offense and defense.
I really like the Bucks though, and hope they make it out of the East.

What is "MPLS"?

Minneapolis

p.s. On a related note, I went through my jersey collection today (which is a lot smaller these days) for the Wolves. Here's what I have:

1989 home replica (Champion) #19 Tony Campbell - unwearable, its a mens size Small...my daughter sports it once in awhile.
1997-1998 (I forget the year) away replicate (Champion) #24 Tom Gugliotta
2016 Adidas away replica #19 Tony Campbell (custom) -- tough to wear, because by mistake it was ordered with an extra two inches of lengh...remember, I'm a really short guy. ha ha ha ha.
2016 Adidas away replica #21 - Kevin Garnett
2016 Adidas away replica #8 - Zach Lavine
2016 Adidas away replica #22 - Andrew Wiggins
2017 - Nike swingman neon green #32 - Karl Anthony Towns
2018 - Nike swingman City Edition, Prince inspired  #32 - Karl Anthony Towns
2018 - Nike Hardwood Classic Edition #32 (Black with green trim) - Karl Anthony Towns

>>>I have two that I still want, but I don't think I'll be able to find in size Large (which is what I wear). I asked Santa though, so who knows what the jolly fat dude may find.

The 2017 City Edition (gray) Wolves jersey for #22 Andrew Wiggins
The  #21 Kevin Garnett Minnesota Timberwolves Mitchell & Ness 1995-96 Hardwood Classics Swingman Jersey – Blue

So, out of the nine I have, I generally can wear seven of them, and try to rotate them throughout the season. I tend to go to two Wolves games a year, and then wear the other jerseys on the days of big games (like last year in the playoffs I was a walking T'Wolves billboard).

And I have a Porzingis replica from my Knicks. I go to one Knicks game a year, and wear it then. Hoping, in time, there will be another jersey or two to add.

Quote from: Kawhi Leonard
With me not even knowing some of the offence, we have Kyle (Lowry) in the game most of the time and he's controlling the ball and most of the tempo.

"I feel like once I start learning the offence I could even give him a little break and let him get some easier shots even though he's playing well."

11-1, and he doesn't feel he knows the offense!
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Looks like the T-Wolves have had enough and decided to trade Butler to the 76ers for Saric and Covington. The T-Wolves had dragged this thing for way too long. While both Saric and Covington are solid players, they could have gotten much much better deal back in Oct

just what Philly needed, another ball dominant player.

also, teams are just going to clog the lane cause Redick is the only other threat outside Butler to shoot from three.

Minnesota won this trade. Covington could allow Wiggins to be Wiggins, and Saric could be a great hi-lo partner to KAT.

Agree with this 100%. Philly lost a great 3 point shooter in Covington and and real good stretch 4. And as T-Ski points out, Butler is a ball dominant player on a team that already has Simmons and Embid. And add to that the fact that he can walk out next year. I really liked Philly but I honestly feel the Process is dead.

Woo hoo, Wolves 1-0 in the post-General Soreness era.  :lol

Being what I think is the forum's only T-Wolves fanatic, I have to say, anyone criticizing the trade from the here and now perspective is off base. Covington and Saric give the Wolves depth, 3-pt shooting, and defense (particularly Covington). The trade is a win in many ways. I was at Butler's last game with the Wolves on Friday. It was a loss, but they finally ran the offense through KAT from the very start, and KAT went 39 pts and 19 rebounds. They lost because when the Kings double-teamed him, and he kicked it out, no one on the Wolves (who were without WIggins and TEague) could make a shot. And Butler was not even trying to play.

SO GLAD it is over. And last night, more of the same -- offense through KAT, and this time, they won. This is going to be good for the Wolves. Sure, I don't like the fact that we traded Lavine and Lauri Markkenen (and didn't like that from the start) for Butler, but there's nothing that can be done with that. But from the perspective of what we have right now, that was a really good trade and gives Minnesota a lot of what it needs.

Last night's game against the Nets -- man, that Levert play...I saw it live, and man. Not good. I feel for that kid. I have been following him since last year when I saw him go off a little bit, and he's really, really good. He was the Nets' leading scorer this year and the future looked great for him. Such a shame. I hope he is back at some point next year from this injury, and picks back up where he left off. Man, what a tough situation.

About the whole Draymond suspension. It is about time. I am sorry,  but that guy needs to realize he is a supporting piece to three future hall of famers. he is a star only because of those three and the successy they led the warriors to.

green is an important player, but seriously, he is  basically riding the coattails of 3 hofers, and a great offensive system. he needs to shut his mouth and know his role.

Agree that Draymond needs to chill. Disagree that he is riding anyone's coattails. While he obviously benefits from being on such a great team, he would be an all-league defender anywhere. If memory serves, he actually has the best Plus/Minus (or Adjusted P/M) of any Warrior these past four years. It hurts me to say it because the guy is super annoying, but he is a damn fine player, IMO.

He's a fine player, and a great defensive stopper. But he's only an All Star because of who he plays with. If the guy was the focal point of a team, and was double-teamed, he'd be crushed.

The more I watch the guy, the more he reminds me of Anthony Mason back in his prime with the Knicks. Donnie Nelson was coaching, and deployed him as a "point forward." Mason was an incredibly gifted passer, played great defense, and could orchestrate the team. He was Green, before Green was Green. Mason was a gifted role player, nothing more. And that is what Green is. He could never be the top dog on any team. And while I applaud him for playing with a chip on his shoulder (because he knows it, and he plays hard to prove he belongs), the fact of the matter is, Draymond Green is only successful because of the people around him. I think he's starter quality, but more of a "role player PLUS" in quality. Meanwhile, Durant, Steph, and Thompson are All Star, if not HOF talent...with or without Draymond Green.

Dude can be replaced by anyone else with the same skill set (take Sabonis off Indiana, for example), and the team wouldn't miss a beat. Draymond needs to shut up and ball, and realize he's fourth on the pecking order, and should act like it and support the other players who are more talented on the offensive end...and not bitch.
