That's why I **** w/ Vic. 

 

He's a legit psychopath but not the snap and beat up his girlfriend type. Son is intimidating as hell on the court.

^ i love dude.. would love him on the thunder..

 

 

hell, i would love for us to trade 12 and reggie jackson to move up for oladipo to replace thabo after his contract is up.. then lamb becomes our 6th man

 

 

 

 

 

but love the intensity.. especially that story about him wearing out his gym access card because he would just pop into the gym all the time

I loved him in the Hoop Summit game. Teams like the Knicks and Pacers should pray that he drops.

I don't know much, but I think I love him.

I watched him at the hoop summit.

Dominated the US gaurds, shifty, excellent on the pick and roll, carved up the us guards, very fast, quick first step but not a great leaper, his jumper is a bit slow but has good mechanics, solid enough to make you pay if you go under the screen.

I like him a lot. IMO he's the second best PG prospect.

best case Rondo 2.0.

Caldwell-Pope is perhaps the leading possibility for that 9th overall pick. The other two guys are candidates for the Wolves' second first-round pick, 26th overall.

The T'Wolves do need a shooter in the worst way.

A few other draft tidbits relating to the T'Wolves in the link.

Watch the DX interview.
Love that dude on here. What's his name?

The Cavaliers are willing to trade the #1 overall pick with Varejao and others in hopes to land a top forward. (Love, Aldridge, Cousins)

If you can't get noel, your telling me Len isn't good enough, if you can't get maclemore, you can't settle for oladipo, pope?, No Burke well is Shroeder or MCW really that bad of a consolation?

The only player I could see compelling someone to trade up is Anthony Bennett if he was 2 inches taller he would be the number 1 pick locked up, and perosnally I think the Wizards would be FOOLISH to take Otto Porter Jr over him, they have a terrible offense, they lack floor spacing, his versatility, his shooting, it's perfect, he has offensive star potential, could be a Larry Johnson like talent.

McLemore has more potential offensively but he's not ready to step in and give you what Oladipo can
Naw definitely gotta take McLemore just off pure talent when you are picking at number 2..but if the Magic can pull off getting bledsoe and picking at #2 , i'd do it in a heartbeat

Most would gladly trade this year's #1 overall for Love (or even DMC).

I wonder about Bledsoe as a starting PG. The defense is legit, but can he run a NBA offense consistently for 30 minutes a night and hit open perimeter shots?

I only have McLemore ranked slightly over Vic. Wouldn't be surprised if Oladipo ended up being the better pro player. Vic's defense will translate immediately. The jumper is getting better and he's an adequate slasher.

McLemore is the goods offensively, but two things worry me. Passive nature and defensive prowess.

The TWolves would be dumb to trade Love over a season FILLED with injuries. That team was absolutely stacked with talent but literally all their main players missed major time. No team in the league could overcome that. Rubio, Chase, AK47, Love, and Pekovic missed a ton of games. Rebuilding over bad luck one year would be dumb - but I wouldn't put it past Flip Saunders.

No one else likes Trey Burke as the 2nd best prospect in the draft? PGs are always the hardest position for me to project but he has deep range, great handles, very polished, good athlete - he really gives me that GREAT PG vibe when I watch him play. I see him as the 2nd most likely to actually turn into an all-star type player instead of being a good roleplayer type.

if it was the #1 pick and Thompson I'd do it in a heartbeat........ hell that is probably the only trade I'd consider from the Cavs.

Kevin Love has a player option after next season.

 

I think he and his brother have made it quite clear he's out the door the minute he gets laugh.gif

post #1309 of 4399
Love could very well force his hand this upcoming season if the wins don't start coming.

Like a Melo/Dwight situation where he can dictate where he wants to go.

Edit:

The caveat is Flip Saunders has been brought in (laugh.gif) to reconcile the relationship between Love and management. I think Love will give them a shot, but who knows.
post #1310 of 4399
Absolutely perfect situation if the Cavs get DMC for the #1 + Varejeo

The Kings just need to blow up that team, they have absolutely 0 direction. If played right they can have a better team than w.e they have now in 2-3 seasons just by stockpiling picks. Their new GM cant possibly **** up on drafting as much as years past.

Btw, if i'm the Twolves I draft Shabazz. They need a 6th man who can come in and be instant offense 10-15 shots a game. Plus if he ever amounts to anything more thats a plus for them. They're a VERY good team when healthy. Easily a 6-8th seed.

I think that's more people taking his brutal honesty out of context. Love tried to sign a 5-year deal and ownership didn't want to give him one. If he really hated Minnesota, he would've pushed for the player option or shorter deal. It's true he might leave but I think winning would've cured most of these problems. If the Wolves are healthy, they have 4th/5th seed type talent in the West. Love playing for a winning team, with a loyal fanbase and one of the best coaches in the league + next to Rubio and Pekovic - I doubt he leaves that situation. This year kind of ruined that though, so I wouldn't be surprised if Minny tries to blow it up or Saunders screws them up somehow.

-

Cav fans would trade the #1 pick AND Varejao for DMC? That's a great trade for the Kings. That's way too risky for the Cavs. Varejao had a LOT of value this season before getting injured, Noel is a top notch prospect and DMC is more of a wildcard than a dominant force right now. Put him on the right team and yeah, he might thrive. The Cavs without Varejao isn't the right team.

I'm not too impressed with Cousins anyway. His low post game hasn't translated well from college, which is why he takes 5 jumpshots a game and shoots under 50% from the field. Terrible team defender. Terrible attitude. I would take the risk for a lower pick but not the 1st pick AND my team's best big man.
post #1312 of 4399
^^^tThe thing about it from the Cavs perspective tho is would you rather have Cousins, hoping that a change of scenery and playing with Kyrie will work out for them and they can get some wins...or take a chance on Noel who is rehabbing from an ACL and the team would most likely still be terrible for a couple more seasons while he gets healthy and develops?

That's not a bad trade for the Cavs. Andy is a solid contributor but is injury prone.

Cousins matures he and Thompson have a potential to be a very solid combo to go with Kyrie

Kevin Love wanted that 5th year... that should be one of your biggest tellers on whether or not it's already guaranteed (laugh.gif) he's going to be out the door when that option comes around. Him wanting it, and then being notoriously bitter about not getting it makes one think he likes the situation he's in, likes playing in Minneapolis, and just needed to be assured that he was wanted. Which is why Kahn's out, and Flips in.

The wins will come... as long as the injuries don't. The Timberwolves would've made their second playoffs in two years had they been even RELATIVELY injury free. I mean, don't forget that they were 21-19 the moment Rubio tore his ACL, and en route to a playoff spot. Not to mention, Bill Simmons projected them as a 5th or 6th seed in a Grantland article before Rubio's injury. Yeah that's just one man's opinion, but some take him as the bible on here so laugh.gif. Then Love missed the rest of the season with a concussion. Fast forward to this year...

Rubio doesn't play until December, and doesn't get his legs back under him until February. Kevin Love played 18 out of the 82 games mean.gif Kirilenko missed 25 games. Pekovic missed 20 games. Budinger missed 49 games. Brandon Roy missed 77 games, Malcolm Lee missed 66 games.. hell, even Josh Howard who management had to sign in the middle of the season due to all these injuries tore his ACL 11 games in. indifferent.gif

Wait until after this upcoming season to gauge Kevin Love's long-term future.

The number one overall pick in a weak draft and a injury prone old center for a center who' with some direction to be a primer center in the league.

Yea I would laugh.gif

Mike Brown should help with his defense also.
post #1316 of 4399
Mike Malone will have a bigger effect on DMC's D than Mile Brown
post #1317 of 4399
Like DMC with Kyrie a lot more than Noel
If he improves defensively and gets more strength he will realize his potential alongside Kyrie. Mike Brown would be good for him IMO.

If I'm the Wizards I'm taking a chance on Bennett. They aren't as bad as their record shows when Wall returned to form and Beal was healthy they were .500. Porter is a day one guy who's very skilled on both ends but Bennett could potentially be an all star who could get you 20 and 10. Playing him at the 4 with Wall and Beal would be $, Porter is good but no where near the upside of Bennett

The team is taking Otto.

 

Anyone who doesn't believe so or think they should can all jump off of a cliff.

i actually think it benefits him being his height , he moves incredibly well and

his game is incredibly advanced for his age
