Glad to see they are still playing to win and not worring about the lottery and how many ping pong balls we get. History has proven that that is not the way to build a team. Besides that, the crop of newbies doesn't look all that wonderful this year. I hate to hear all the comments about tanking. I always thought the object of the game was to win and that if you shaved points or deliberately lost, it was a form of cheating. It certainly doesn't sound like the type of thing we want to teach our children!

This was really a fun game to watch - a definite nail-biter. Keep it up guys! Way to go, KL - Rookie of the Month. I'm already looking forward to next year.

A nice win, although I think I would rather we just kept it close, and lost. Carney and Gomes were terrific, while Miller and Williams played well. I think Carney should be retained and should get major minutes at SG next season. I wish the wolves would find some way to move Foye as he doesn't have any PG instincts and has trouble guarding some of the bigger 2's. Gomes needs to develop some consistency. One game he will score in the mid 20s and the next game he is likely to put up 8 or 9 points.

It is looking more and more like we will draft anywhere from 6th to 8th depending on how many teams jump over us in the lottery. A replacement for Telfair would be nice, and this draft is heavy in PG's, although relatively poor at other positions. It looks more and more likely that Utah will be retaining their pick this year, which may be a good thing as we are not going to want more than 2 or 3 rookies on next seasons team.

don nelson wants jamal crawford out.
what about cardinal and madsen to golden st for crawford ?
wolves get a guy who can play and golden st gets two contracts which end after one season.
or is crawford a poison like mccants was thought to be?
I have no clue as to what type of team player crawford is.
at the very least it would open a spot for incoming rookies.
or a spot for signing carney or williams or some other free agent.

next year in the nba should be very interesting. teams are trying to unload big contracts, so they can land a big time free agent in 2010. alot of nba teams are thinking along these lines.

Mike Miller should never be allowed to dribble the ball. He needs to find an open spot and just shoot. He is the turn-over king. I hope they keep Brain Cardinal around he is the biggest pain in the a$$ on the floor. The other teams must hate him. He is a gritty hardnose player who always seems to be in the way of the other team.

u need 2 or 3 point guards on a nba championship team. if u try to bank on just one point guard, u are asking for trouble, first a player as to learn there plays. suppose the point guard u bank on gets hurt. then u gonna say, dammm, i should kept that other point guard player. just something to think about. wink,wink.
