First, I just watched first half. These are my impressions from the first half. Darko has impressed me big time during the first half. The guy is really all-star caliber center when not in faul troubles. He played great against D.Howard and he played fantastic first half yesterday. If he get some consistency he should be our franchise guy. Yesterday, whenever he was on Lamarcus, Lamarcus looked pathetic could not score one point on Darko,could not post him, Darko blocked him multiple times. Yes, he was lost against Darko BUT Portland has a good coach and made sure that Lamarcus from now on ends up on KLove and not Darko. And that move kept Lamarcus wiping the floor with KLove. It just exposed all weaknesses once again from KLove on defensive end. In his defense he gives up couple inches on Lamarcus but hey you want to be an all star? Do something. I am ok with KLove being liability on defensive end but our coach and manager have to make sure we have a player on the team who can cover him on defense. Type of player like RArtest or Matt Barnes or Duke dude from Houston. Somebody like that. Our problem is LRidnour and lost in translation my man Michael "DopeMan" Beasley. What to do with them? None of them can play defense, they are turnover machines and I really, really think that we won't go nowhere with MBeasley. I don't worry about Ridnour Kahn is not stupid and he knows he need to do something about Ridnour and Flynn one of them need to moved. But Beasley oh boy that guy is horrible, he scores few points, gives up tons off points on defensive ends turns over the ball and just dissapears from the game. I really think we are better without him or him coming from the bench. Darko is still young 25 and we really need to develop him more he should be our main guy. When we play right, through him, everything opens up, why we don't continue that? Somebody ask KRambis. If we would have Westbrook on our team we would be a 45-55 wins team. Nuff said.

Nope, I see the hope. We are Andre Miller and Shane Battier away from 45+ wins a season.

Wasn't it just yesterday they wrote an article in the Pi Press about how the Wolves were the team with the bright "upside" and Portland had the question marks due to the loss of Roy? Well....

We have an OK starting lineup now. The drop off going to the bench is staggering. Point guards. Need point guards. Looking at the box scores, only three players in double figures! No team has really shut Aldridge down, he's been on a scoring tear, so piling on KLove is not exactly accurate or fair. One player can only do so much.

Some good pieces, some glaring holes. The challenge now is to keep Love in one piece so there is still something to help build around. He keeps this up and he will get injured soon. THEN it WILL be miserable to watch. Darko is exceeding my expectations (not hard) and C-Brew has more energy than a nuclear plant.

I dunno... ever since the inception of this team, we have always lacked players with good size AND athleticism. We always draft the scrawny "uptempo" players with that "uptempo" game plan in mind, and they can never play at that uptempo pace,(mostly due to lack of POINT GUARDS) and we become an undersized half court team every year with a glut of players at the 2 and 3, and we try to make them play outside of their limitations. Other teams just LOOK bigger, meaner. We NEVER have that look about our team. EVER! Do they lift weights? Who's in charge of their training? The look like H.S. sophomores out there compared to other teams' physical conditioning.

clipper picks.
one or two of these four could become a d wade or blake griffin or kevin durant.
wheel and deal Mr kahn.

will k love be worth top dollar when the time comes around for new contract when his defense is so suspect. if he is offered top dollar later, would he even stay or bolt to a warmer califoria climate anyway and wolves get nothing for him when he goes.
k love would make a great third best player on a team. to bad wolves do not have two players better than him.
