Luc Longley, Christian Laettner, Paul Grant, Rasho Nesterovic, Rasho Nesterovic and Kevin Love(Via Trade).. 6 of 17 first round draft picks since the beginning of the franchise were white. I'd like to see another franchise with that drafting record and still have our success. Be proud of that stat. I am.

Thought I would do something different here and say how much I enjoyed watching the Wolves whup the Pistons. It seems the only people who post comments lately are the ones who berate Wittman and McHale ad nauseum. We get it already. What I don't understand is - if you hate the franchise as much as you say you do, and don't care about the team - why are you reading about it and writing the same drivel over and over and over again? Do something else with your time. Watch hockey or soccer or go bowling. Read a book???

I love basketball and the Wolves are my team and I enjoy watching them - win or lose. Winning isn't everything. Sure - it's nice but the game is beautiful to watch no matter who is playing - from high school all the way to the pros.

Whoopty du the Stolen Pistons beat a team that has never even been to the NBA finals. In fact the closest this team has ever been to getting to the NBA finals was losing in 6 games to the LA Lakers in the 2004 Western Conference Finals. And that was the only time the T-Wolves had ever even been to A finals game. And hell (no offense at all to T-Wolves fans) correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't that also the only time the Minnesota T-Wolves won a playoff series? And haven't the T-Wolves not even been to the playoffs since then?

Ah I rest my case
Stolen Pistons-Flip Saunders-Chauncey Billups-Antonio McDyess+New Coach+Kwamie Brown+Rasheed Wallace+AI=Bad Karma=Pistons get smashed by the Celtics on their home turf=Pacers smash Celtics on their home turf with their first home opener sellout since most likely the Reggie Miller days=2009 Pistons<2009 Pacers=Pacers got to the 2009 playoffs, Pistons do not=2009 Detroit Pistons=1999 Chicago Bulls!!!!!!!!!!

PS.
Hey Minnesota you know what you have in common with us Hoosiers, you've had the Lakers stolen just like we've had our Pistons stolen and your expansion teams haven't bought your state back any NBA championships since. Oh wait, I almost forgot The Lakers originated in Detroit and were called the Gems. And Minnesota couldn't keep the Lakers near as long as Indiana could keep the Pistons lol.
