so we got another 7' european center .... so now the Woofies have the 3 softest 7' centers in the league .... mix in the 2 under-sized PF's who play no D in Love(6'7 3/4") and Beasley(6'7").... the Woofies will be DESTROYED in the paint this year .... and what's the deal with signing all of Milwaukee's PG's every year .... the only Bucks PG CONman should be after is Brandon Jennings

Who's left who can make the impact? Kevin Love. He was the best player on the team, and stuck behind Al because of the contract and the need to showcase Al to keep his trade value high. Kevin Love will lead the league in rebounding if he gets the minutes, and will easily match Al's scoring output.
I like Kevin's offensive game, but he's slow and can't stop my mom from scoring on defense.

don't forget Kevin can't run , can't jump and can't get his shot off down in the paint(tip ins don't count... i'm talking an actual shot)

I am glad that al jefferson is gone. The wolves could have received better players for KG from another team. I want to see flynn, love, and sessions traded. Clearing salary and accumulating draft picks for future deals makes sense. There will be more deals to come I do not believe they done dealing yet.

Jefferson will laugh all the way out of Minnesota - he's no doubt the happiest man in the NBA right now! When the Jazz play the T-Wolves Jefferson will eat them alive!!
Jefferson may get his points against us but he will give up more than he will score. I know that may be too hard for you so called "State of Hockey" fans.

a win-win i suppose. Al Jefersoon gets a good team with a great coach. Timberwolves get 1st round draft picks - more than he's worth.

and start worrying about this band of bumbling idiots, and why they should even be in Minnesota. Go back down in your mom's basement and practice your color by number.
Or better yet go down too the Target center locker room and be a " fluffer " for your
homies you putz.
Ha! Timberlosers! Did you think of that yourself? I can't stop laughing, it was so funny! Ha Ha Ha Ha .......... Ha.....Hoo!

Yeah, if I knew we were gonna trade Jefferson and sign Darko for $20 mill, I would have been pulling for Cousins too! Now we have a team full of tweeners...
But I will still be watching. Sadly for me, I will always be Team of 1707.
But until we start winning again, I'm bandwagon all day baby!
Go HEAT!!!

This was a great trade! Thanks, Minnesota! Hopefully the T'Wolves front office has helped make another team championship caliber. At the minimum, hopefully the T-Wolves won't be beating my Jazz as often. After all, we have a meaningless division championship to compete for.:)

What do they have left with real value to trade? If they trade anymore now they'll end up like Kevin McHale, with a bunch of contracts and no players with marketable talent. They're going to have to let some of these players play together for awhile to find out what they have. It's going to be another two years before we're competitive in the Western Conference, if then.

Darko Milicic, a guy re-habbing from drugs, a backup, and a eureopean who will be a washout next year? That's the team's 'projected new look'? What are they trying to look like? The Washington Generals farm team?


Sounds appealing for the fans buying those tickets. I wouldn't renew a Wolves season ticket if they were paying ME to take them and show up at this small college circus.


What a lineup....when the Wolves could have had a lineup of Garnett, Roy, Mayo, and other good pieces with some astute drafting and NON-trading LAST 2 YEARS!
