It should be show-time for all these guys. Only Big Al should feel he has a spot tied up. The idea of trying to lose for a higher draft pick seems obsurd as the higher the pick the more likely that the rookie will be replacing you.
I think Love is a keeper but his lack of size does matter. The best available free agents seem to be big men so (If the Wolves go that route)somebody up front will likely be watching from the bench next year.
Foyes is a true talent but he is not irreplaceable. Brewer may've been coming on prior to his injury, but he has yet to prove he is worthy of his draft position. Gomes & Miller are both nice players but not necessarilly a starter.
Point is their greatest need; Telfaire really isn't more than a back-up. He has done well, better than expected, but the point is the weakest position on the floor right now.
I'd love to see Curry who lit up last year's March-madness, and has proved a quality point guard this year come to the Wolves. He's proved to be a big game player, great shootist and now is proving himself as more than just a shootist. He does look underdeveloped though. Watching the big guy from the Tar heals (name escapes me) reminds me of the great passer that Love was supposed to be for the Wolves. I wouldn't mind seeing him later in the draft.
As usual the off-season should prove more exciting than the remainder of this season.

how do they have 4 first rounders? Maybe they can trade one for PG Mario Chalmers, who they foolishly traded last draft.

The main thing that seperates bench players from starters in the NBA is CONSISTENCY. It's time for a new starting PG, one that can shoot at least 40%!

first off the point guard is not the weakest position on the floor, they need a dominant center.

but u still need talented players around him, once that happens, then he is free to show his true talent, for instance take rajon rondo, he has the big three on his team him in boston, so he is able to produce more, we have yet to see sebastian telfair on a talented team.

Simple math says the Celts kept Rondo & let Bassy go because Bassy is not as good.

first of all, we have yet to see sebastian telfair on a talented team in all his yearsin the nba, portland and boston was not good at all when he played for them. put him on a talented team. tony parker,steve nash,j kidd,derek fisher,delonte west, are surrounded by great talent. if sebastian had that kind of talent around him, he would cause teams fits, with his speed and passing ability.

I like Bassy as a back-up. Point gaurd is the Wolves weakest position because our starter is a back-up. Its as bad as TJack starting for the Vikes. Parker & Nash & Fisher & Kidd can shoot the ball. You don't really think Bassy is a Parker, Nash or Kidd do you? Let's see if those teams would trade even up for Bassy, or let those players go at all. The fact that Bassy has failed to stick with so many bad teams does not speak well of him.

this site seems to be all about guessing. we have never seem him on a talented team. we already seen how bassy cause jason kidd fits when he played for new jersey. and steve nash at phoenix, can not keep up with him. now if he was on a talented team that would spread the floor on offense. he then would blow by them with his crossover and speed. he has okay stats. on a not so talented minnesoto timberwolves team at the presnt time. just imagine a talented team.

very funny,lol. i am telling u give them 2 dominant talented players. and his stats go up, his stats are okay now, they would go up, if he had those kinds of players, then teams would have to double those players and then sebastian would truly go off, and run by them.

sebastian telfair, seems to be focus now that he is back to playing basketball. thats why u cannot pay attention to critics. in the nba. but just go out and play ur game. sebastian is still young. and has great speed, as far as turning the corner and going to the basket.
