Interesting, I remember when Rick was a Mcdonalds all American with David Lee and it's been interesting to follow their career paths. Being the homer that I am a always thought he had better ball skills than David Lee, but Lee appears to be more tougher rebounding presence. I like the idea of giving him a shot and always felt bad that KG punked him the way he did during his first go around with the Wolves.

If his damn dad stays out of the locker room it might be okay.....As many remember his Dad was WAY TOO HANDS ON......maybe Rick grew up and got rid of his moronic influence

Oh boy, it's Dick Dickert to the rescue! This gets me excited about the T-wolves, NOT!! Go back to Slovenia... If it makes you feel better Dick, take the whole team with you.

Yeah, rewrite history. As I recall, Rickert was being a typical obnoxious Minnesota-bred white boy and his big mouth was writing checks that his wimpy butt couldn't cash.

Rickert's resurgence is just more proof on why the Timberwolves will always be a cellar dweller.

Maybe the Wolves should see what Randy Breuer is up to while they're at it.

Well so much for the free agent pool.....goodbye David Lee ...hello bargain basement Rickert. Another sad looong year for the wolves. I say that the Wolves front office all have mentals issues. Can't they get it right at least once????

It tells you how far the Timberwolves have fallen. They can't get any real free agents to take their money, and the fact they think Rick "I'm too good for the Big Ten" Rickert is being considered for a chance to make this team.

1) Whether Rickert gets a fair chance to make the T-Wolves he's probably better than most of the guys on the team! 2) As far as Nanne's comments on Probert - his greatest legacy shouldn't be noted as a hockey bad boy, but as a decent, kind and caring human being. Any players he played with will attest to that. He would drop everything in a nano second to help someone else out no matter what! Not to mention being a wonderful husband and father. I'm sure he would much rather be remembered for that!!

Oh this is just classic. A Rickert sighting. Its been to long Chuck! On a more serious note I'm sad to learn Rickert is a child abuser. Takes a sick person to name his kid Pepper.

yes "Just 27". If old Rickert cannot be a player by now he never will. Anyone care to bet with me? I bet 100 K Walters will mention Seantrell Henderson in his next writing "experiment".

Former gophers are not the answer. The wolves know they can't sign a real free agent. They always scrape the bottom when it comes to signing players. Is royce white next to sign with the wolves?
