We're going to be pretty bad with Al Jefferson not being 100% and Kevin Love being injured so we're going to lose, that's for sure, we just don't have the "right" talent to really be able to compete every night, it just seems Flynn is consistent to an extent, that being scoring, he is still playmaking though, but we're just not making the open shots. At this point Flynn is our best player, for his dynamic scoring ability, but I'm hoping to see a lot more of Ramon Sessions, I really think they should try have him guards 2s or smaller 3s while Brewer guards the 2. I just don't think Gomes is athletic and quick enough to be in our starting lineup, I know he can make shots, but I don't seem him lasting any longer than the All Star Break with us, especially with the fact that his contract can be terminated at the end of the season. Maybe back to to a team like Boston with Brian Cardinal and Mark Blount for Ray Allen. We could sure use a SG right now, even though I would love to see Sessions play the 2 it would be great to see somebody like Allen come in and help Jonny at least get some worthy assist numbers. No, I'm sure the Celtics don't want to get rid of Allen for free, but I'm sure Gomes fill fetch more salary cap room than prospects or draft picks.

tough to win when you PG has only one assist and your team has 11 total.

I do have high hopes for Flynn, but has anybody else noticed a comparison in his passing game to Acie Earl?
Alot of nice Point Gaurds chosen in the 1st round, Many by the T-wolves. How is it we get 1 assist out of him? Lawson also chosen by the Wolves (nd traded like Roye), I believe is averaging over 5 assist per night. Rubio has not made one assist all year! Not alot of return for all that point gaurd frenzy!
I was happy when the Wolves picked Flynn. I still am. I don't see anybody cutting up defenses like he has the ability to do. Big Al's comparison of him to Chris Paul is'nt that far off in this ability. However, I see Lawson, Jenkins, Curry all out-performing him to this point.
If you have a passing game like Acie Earl, you aint a point gaurd>
