Phenomenal trade! Kevin Love will turn into a David West type player in the post. Kevin is a "very underrated" athlete and put up identical numbers to Michael Beasley at the Orlando Pre-draft Combine, the only significant disparity in athleticism between Love and Beasley is in lateral quickness. Love also has elite passing skills. Love is a bit undersized for a center, but there are no more Shaqs right now to contend with at Center. Kevin Love is a tenacious workaholic who will never say quit on defense even when he has the size disadvantage. Love drew lots of charges at UCLA and got lots of blocks. His team shouldn't have stopped giving him the ball in the 4th quarter of the final 4 game, he is a beast in the post.

Mike Miller is a "very underrated" player who I think should have made the Olympic team over Michael Redd due to his superior FG% and 3 pt% as well as better rebounding and overall athleticism. Redd just shoots more and draws more fouls. Other than that Miller is better, Miller is a better passer to boot and Redd won't get the calls he does in the NBA to go to the charity stripe. Collins is a good bench defensive specialist and we unloaded horrible contracts. Go T-Wolves!

Does anyone know why McFail traded a future superstar PG in Mario Chalmers for a couple of toothpicks?......Oh, never mind.....people don't call him McFail for nothing. He should change his name to McMoron, makes more sense.

I liked the Chalmers pick as well. I heard on the radio that McHale had already made this trade before the Mayo/Love & Miller trade had been made. I was disappointed the trade was made at all, I thought Chalmers would be a decent player. The guys on ESPN think Chalmers will be a starter for the Heat by midseason. I'm not sure why McHale doesn't treat the 2nd round(especially high 2nd round picks) as an asset. Oh well, I guess that's why we stink & K.G. has a ring after ONE YEAR with the Celtics. McHale had 12 years & couldn't get it done, Ainge(with McHale's help) gets it done in 1 year.
