McHale will be a legend if this works.

I think Kevin Love is clearly more NBA ready immediately than Corey Brewer was. Keep in mind that Brewer was not an offensive dynamo in college either, so we shouldn't expect him to be. He played great defense, and that should be his role with the Wolves too. Love however will definitely provide that spark of offense, and in my opinion will have a much better rookie campaign than Corey Brewer did.

I don't know why it should be so hard to get Philly's system out of his head, he sat on the bench for 3/4 of every game, so what's to forget?

Why do you take a rail thin defensive stopper with the 7th overall pick? We're offensively challenged. We were told that he had NBA
3-pt range & would be an offensive threat. After a
5-18 shooting night last night, it makes you wonder what McHale was thinking. I know he's young, but on a crappy team you expect more of an immediate contribution. Could McHale be wrong again?

Kevin Love - do you know why it hasn't sunk in that you're playing in the NBA?
Because you're playing for the Timberwolves... A team that would struggle against most D-League teams.

For starters, Corey Brewer was the Most Outstanding player in the NCAA Final Four. He hit big time shots while not being a scoring juggernaut. He is a very good defender which this team also needs. One might say he is the only real defender the Wolves have. With Jefferson, Miller, Foye, and Love, they have guys to take a majority of the shots needed. There is only 1 ball out there. I really don't think Carney will end up doing much for the Wolves, but who knows.

We need another PG though, right now we are desperately thin at this position.

Everyone claims Brewer is a defensive stopper??? Who did he shutdown offensively last year? I watched almost every one of the Timberwolves games last year and can not think of one player with average or better offensive skills he shutdown.

Brewer is another in a long line of bad moves by McHale. He is showing nothing, absolutely nothing besides being out of the league in another year. Throw in the Foye debacle and this team could have been decent if it had been run by another GM. Still sickens me we traded Roy for Foye. An All Star for another guy who most likely will be out of the league in a few years.

People need to remember that in the cases of Ray Allen, Brandon Roy, and Mario Chalmers, the Wolves drafted these players for other teams and would not have drafted them if they had kept the pick.

The Wolves were on the record as saying they liked Kerry Kittles better than Ray Allen. But Milwaukee wanted Allen, so that's who the Wolves took.

A couple of yrs ago, the Wolves wanted Foye, but more than one team wanted to move up for Roy. That's why the Wolves took Roy for Portland.

Finally, this year, the Wolves weren't going to draft Chalmers. They would have taken a front line player if they had kept that pick, because it was before the Memphis trade. The only reason they took Chalmers was because Miami told them to for the trade.

So, in summary, we can't even give the Wolves scouting enough credit for the good players they drafted and traded. And from a fan's perspective, it's time to stop whining that we should have kept those guys. Especially since we would not have drafted them in the first place.

I agree. I've been bringing up the Ray Allen/Marbury thing for quite a while. Foye was supposed to drop another one or two spots down, therefore making his salary less. This front office is clueless!!!!!!!!!! There were many decent players available in the early second round of this years draft. We draft someone who's tied to his European team for a few years & we make a trade for future picks & cash. Glen Taylor is a MORON for letting McHale run the team this way. They kind of deserve each other.....dumb & dumber. It makes you wonder how Taylor ever made it in the business world. I'm a former season ticket holder & I can't even watch them anymore. For you Wolves fans who think this team is a year or two from the playoffs, think again. We won't be able to stop anyone. We're lottery bound for quite a while.
