Corey Brewer will cry a river with tears of joy all the way from MN to NY! You can count on that! I'm happy for Corey that he is going to a real basketball team. Randolph is a cast off, so he won't make the tenderwolves any better! Samo samo! ;-(

Randolph could be the surprise of this trade. He was given the Milicic treatment in New York. He's a good, talented player. Wolves doing a good job of finding talented players.
Kahn so far...

Goods..
Picked up Beasley, a talented player, for nothing
Picked up Milicic, a talented player, for nothing

Bads..
Beasley completely disappears at the end of games
Milicic completely disappears at the end of games

My point is that there is a reason no one wants these guys like Randolph....they're NBA losers, they don't know how to win. Kahn is just trying to get 20 wins on the board to appease the ever-dwindling Wolves fans.

Compared to all Kahn's talk the past 2 seasons about making "big" moves and landing some big free agents, what was he done to back that up? Nothing!!

BTW, he should've sent Flynn packing, he's a TO MACHINE. And Ridnour...as our supposed "savvy vet" I've seen him make about the worst end of game decisions one can think of.

I still put it all on McHale for getting this organization to the bottom of the toilet bowl seemingly FOREVER. But Kahn hasn't done anything either. Bring me a big name, then we'll talk. Otherwise, stop the empty rhetoric Kahn and stop being a used car salesman.

You are sounding like an idiot yourself you toolbox! Upside? The upside is Randolph has more of an than Brewer. You are the idiot for wanting to keep Brewer.
Before you start throwing out stupid remarks as you have. Randolph has been with two, can you count that high? two teams that were sub 500 teams and they could not make it work, the dude is either lazy, or has lost his mojo. I'll stick that tool box right up in there for ya and you'll like it. Do some research before commenting. If you think Randolph is an improvement over Brewer you are crazy.

the NBA is now run by the star players and they will play where they want to and their choice isnt going to be a midwest team, it doesnt matter who is running the show here, the NBA will have 5 great teams and the rest will be irrelevant,

If the Timberwolves are good at one thing it's making other teams better and help create the travesty called the NBA. We have helped create three all star teams: Boston, Miami, and New York. We also saved the Jazz from being bottom feeders with the Jefferson trade. I think David Stern is the one calling the shots for teams like the Wolves and giving Glen Taylor some extra coin. This is getting ridiculous.

Get rid of Flynn and Ridnour and get a decent PG.

The biggest mistake in the trade was not sending off Milicic instead of Koufos. Milicic can't even make A 6 foot open shot. He loves the hook shots yet has no consistency in making them. Missed two close in shots in the final seconds against the Bucks that contributed largely to the loss!

Tutu,
Wouldn't you think that just once the wolve's would make the right pick in the draft?
It is almost comical how poorly the wolve's have chosen.
2010 Passing on Cousins to draft Wes Johnson. The jury is out. Cousins has more upside. Johnson looks like a role player no matter how much the wolves try to make it sound like he is a future star.
2009 Rubio and Flynn over Curry, Derozan, and others. Trading the rights to Lawson.
2008 Drafting Mayo over Love, Westbrook, and Gordon. At least we traded well.
2007 Brewer over Noah, when we could have used more size, rather than a wing.
2006 Ending up with Foye, after trading the rights to Roy, and passing on Gay and Rondo.
2005 McCants, passing on Granger.
2003 Ebi, over Barbosa and Howard.
About the only time the wolves brass made the right pick, and kept the player, was Garnett. A few times that have chose the right player, Ray Allen, B. Roy, but have traded the player later the same night.
You're forgetting some of the historically bad picks - Luc Longley, Felton Spencer, Paul Grant, Rasho, maybe Donyell Marshall. Yeah, the T-Wolves have for the most part been pretty darn bad at drafting.

I think this works for the wolves. brewer has potential to be a a lockdown defender and ok on offense, but why not take a shot at randolph? he has good upside. maybe his third team will light a fire up his tush. curry might help spell darko, i think we should figure out how to combine the two, and we'd have a decent center. i'm still hoping two of our three last picks pan out so we can start to play for the playoffs. i'm still hoping la pistola is the real deal, flynn gets healthy and wes plays to his potential. i wonder what our lineup will look like in three years.....rubio at point, wes at the 2 or webster, the other at sf, k love at pf and darko at center maybe. it just pains me now to watch our offense run through darko. he looks like he is using his off hand all the time when he shoots, and he's not......and does anyone else think wes shoots way too early during his shot? he has a quick release i guess you could say, but it seems like he needs to wait til he's at the top of his jump until he shoots......go wolves....just think, it only takes one player to create a good team....think duncan and kg....well duncan had some all star teammates i guess.

work for the team losing the star player, just ask the Vikes on Moss, The Wolves on Garnett, the Twins on Santana, the North Stars on Dino Ciccirelli. We never get back 50% of what we need. Same here, Brewer goes to a potential playoff team? Go figure?

The Bad news is they got rid of Brewer and got stuck with Curry.Slob didn't want to play in NYC what will he do here. Also that the Tdogs are a terrible franchise devastated by their poor ownership and Dave Stern. The good news is nobody cares about the NBA anymore. Its not fantastic. Look at the empty seats in the league. Its like college women basketball only 4 teams got a shot to win ever year.

Does anybody know why Dan Barero of Kfan calls David Kahn the Meerkat? Honest question...I am curious?
I did a Google about Meerkats and I think this line pretty well sums it up:
"Meerkats are born with hair but not full coats and with their eyes closed."

Bingo!

I had the same thought yesterday. NBA seems like a ponzi and the Timberwoes were one of the last investors.

Not a very bright future ahead for the NBA when there are only a few teams that have a shot at competing for the title. I can't believe people even care what the timberwolves are doing with personnel. They have no shot and that is not going to change for a long time.

If the current trend is not abated (players colluding to create super teams with the help of agents)the NBA is a prime candidate for contraction. Too many teams with no chance of being anything but modern day Washington Generals.
They could easily contract 8 teams and still be unbalanced until they drop the "star calls" and get back to real basketball. The sport has been hijacked by street ballers and agents and has become largely irrelevent as opposed to football and baseball. I believe that disinterest and lack of real attraction will doom the league unless serious changes are made during the upcoming CBA.
First they should adopt the baseball rule on draftees, ie: If you do not sign out of HS, you cannot sign for three years or until your junior year in college ball is done...this will help restore some integrity to college ball (no more 1 semester wonders who do not go to class).
Allow franchise tag to be placed on a player to make sure that the rest of the league is not made to be a farm system for 7 or 8 franchises in marquee markets.
Restore the integrity of the game by calling it straight up, no more star system...make them play ball...
If not, then they should contract as soon as possible, these franchises should be immediate candidates based on historic competitive performance (front office,local support, historic area interest [fan base], and coaching etc): Sacremento (can combine with Golden State); Toronto (can combiine with Detroit); Cleveland and Indiana..one goes; Charlotte (Tarheels rule); Minnesota or Milwaukee [or both]; Memphis; Utah and Denver can combine; and New Orleans and/or OK City..combine them. If you take out 6 teams that will leave 24 or 4 six team diviions restrict playoffs to top 8 teams. If you remove 8 teams, that will leave 2 11 team divisions, top 3 plus two wildcards....better palyoffs and better teams.
