Great now Kahn can draft a point guard or a power forward. How man point guards has he drafted and do we really need a power forward?!

Fixed Drafts to let teams they "WANT" to win get the top pick.
Why would the league want Cleveland to win and the New York Knicks to lose?

You are correct. 1 out of 5 isn't gonna cut it, as they proved to us the past 2 years.

The problem for the Wolves is that the lottery actually punishes the bottom 3 teams. As soon as a #4-14 team gets a high pick it pushes the worst teams back. They should reduce the number of teams in the lottery. Say the 4 worst teams or the worst team in each division (6 total). Something. If you win the lottery, you can't win it again for 6 years or so. The best thing the Wolves can do is not be one of 3 worst teams in the league.
I think #2 pick is great! With the Wolves luck I was expecting the #3 or #4 pick. It's on Cleveland to make the right choice.
Remember Oden went #1 to Portland and he never seems to play. Durant went #2 to Seattle and he's an All-Star. I like Beasley, but he seems to be too immature to play for a young team. Trade him. I know PG Felton(Nuggets) doesn't want to play 2nd fiddle to Lawson. Maybe sign/trade for him.

It's anti-Minnesota! The NBA knows just how much more awesome Minnesota is over Jew York that they will spread their hate everywhere! There is no other possible explanation for the MINNESOTA team to play terribly year after year after year! Because MINNESOTA NEVER LOSES!!!!

Build more stadiums!!!!

the 2nd pick is hard to come by in the history of the Wolves. Keep the pick!. Wolves still has the #20 pick to select some decent point guard; or bundling the Flnn to trade off with the some teams is not a bad option.

Get Williams at #2, then use #20 and Flynn for the rights to Biyumbo.
