you're in danger of having too many people on the floor who can't shoot.

Dunn projects to be a better shooter than lil ricky, no? Also I would think a lineup of dunn, lavine, wiggs, bjelica and kat isn't that horrible spacing wise

yeah but im talking about the future core.

rubio is not long for this world just because of his age, he's not part of the future core whether he gets traded now or later.

Yeah, that's the problem as is with Rubio out there. And Dunn is only what, 2 years younger than Rubio?

He needs to be surrounded by shooters.. which we have 0 of :{ our best shooter is our 20 year old Rookie Center.

 

But.. since we're not building around Rubio, I can see why trading him would make sense. I'm just a big Rubio fan, he gets a lot of **** but he's really good if you got the right personnel around him.

 

 

 

That regression :{ 

post #56018 of 93193
I agree, Carver.

And to make this worthwhile, they better end up with a PG who can shoot and is durable.

Heres the thing tho, wiggins isn't a non shooter, you still have to gaurd him. he can hit it if you leave him wide open. so he still gives you some spacing.

Your hate for Lavine seems so personal laugh.gif Where did this "cool" stuff come from?


Btw, only 32.6 of his shots come outside the paint, inside the 3pt line. Kawhi? 40.6% he also attacks the basket more often than Kawhi. And kawhi has that stupid face that looks like he doesn't care, too. laugh.gif

Osh hates him way more haha

I feel like Rubio is in a terrible situation for his skill set. Wiggins isn't a shooter by any means. Wolves have some pieces I just hope they can be saavy enough to at least put a roster together that makes a little bit of sense

Andrew Wiggins' 3pt% when left wide open (6+ feet of space) : 22%

Andrew Wiggins' 3pt% when the defender us 4-6ft away: 29%


I would invite him shoot it.

Teams don't treat him like a non shooter. So we'll see if it changes but right now, teams don't treat him like rondo. SImilar thing happens with D-Wade, teas still defend. becasue they fear him cutting to the basket or getting hot.

I cant wait for some trades to go down. Cant believe there's no games for the next 3 days. I hate the all star break mean.gif
I hope Minny gets rid of Rubio. He doesnt make them a good team. Never took them to the playoffs. Which shows you he doesnt improve his teammates. Useless PG that cant shoot. Also gotta get rid of Pekovic and Kevin Martin. Also need a new coach for next season.

roll.gif I apoloize. I honestly thought it was sarcasm because I heard you mention it before and I think he was having a bad game. My bad.

Zach Lavine helped bring the dunk contest back momentarily. He has my full support.


In regards to Wiggins: a scout I know used to always tell me year 3 was much more important than year 2. I think I've heard people say that in here too. I'll wait until Wiggins' third year before I panic.

Lavine plays like a young JR Smith

I don't think the T'Wolves are shopping Rubio. Listening to offers though? Yes.

All 3 stay, imo.

But in order of who I think is the most/least likely to move:

Blake
Howard
Rubio

Howard is too pricy and too much drama for such limited offensive game.

Rubio, I think the Wolves are still figuring themselves out, still building an identity. And I don't think he's someone that they look at like, "Yeah, we want to be known as this style, so he has to go." I don't think he's looked at as a problem, so I don't think he's moving.

Just conjecture, but there are my thoughts.

You must not remember JR being in the dunk contest with the Hornets. He used to have some crazy springs too.

Howard. Ship him to Atlanta, its basketball purgatory anyways. His antics become a non story because Atlanta is a perpetual non story.
