Draft Buzz

"Timberwolves have offered point guard Jonny Flynn in a package deal for swingman Andre Iguodala. Philadelphia officials, however, have let it be known that they are not interested in a salary-dump deal for Iguodala and want an impact veteran in return. " In other news, Josh Smith is on the table (but has made a 'wishlist' of sorts).

Jordan and the bulls against Marbury, Garnett, and the Wolves. Inspired by the latest memories thread, I was lucky enough to find video of my own. This is rebuilding basketball at it's finest. Marbury and Garnett gave me more to look forward to each game than Wade and LeBron could ever dream of doing. Too bad Marbury went crazy. Not only were they good, but they were absolutely fun to watch. Some highlights from the video: -First and foremost, notice the crowd. I don't remember what that feels like. - Garnett picks Jordan perfectly and gets a monster stuff (after a foul, but still a great play) - Stanley Roberts with a play that Darko could only dream of - Marbury played one hell of a game -Garnett with his oh-so-famous turnaround to clinch the game -Marbury tossing the ball as the buzzer sounds (the truly memorable part of this game for me).

It focused on Artest's unspecified criticism on how the Timberwolves play defense. "They have a gimmick defense. It's hard to play them because they're a last place team and they're doing this gimmick defense. We're probably going to win anyway. They got this gimmick defense. I can't wait to get to the playoffs." Read the rest of the article attached, there's also a video. It's an interesting read, as Artest always is. And there's only a little bit of crazy mixed in here and I'm not really sure what the context is for some parts (but it's Artest, so who knows). Mostly I just wanted to point out how we have a 'gimmick defense' and he plainly states that they don't care because they know they're going to win anyways.

As stunned coaches and teammates watched, Hamilton bellowed at Kuester that he had been a failure in his two seasons in Detroit, blown the opportunity the franchise afforded him and was nothing more than a career assistant coach, sources said. Despite Hamilton yelling within inches of him, Kuester didn’t respond. And here I thought Hamilton was overpaid. Why didn't Kahn go after this man? He would have been my personal superstar.

From ESPN's OTL that was on this morning. About 8-9 minutes about Rubio... nothing special, but they tried to set him up a lot to insult MN, which he never really did. A lot of "you never know" type answers.

The Wolves will host former NBA players Trey Johnson (pictured), Sundiata Gaines, Curtis Jerrells and Aaron Miles prior to Wednesday's game against the Kings in Sacramento according to a league source. The Wolves would need to release a player currently on the roster to bring a new player in as they already have a league-maximum 15 players with Maurice Ager being the only player without a guaranteed contract.

The NBA: Where hypocrisy happens

6

For all we've heard about the NBA trying to clean up its image and become more family friendly, this just seems like an interesting choice of sponsors. So I think the one thing we can really take from the NBA is that it's less about their image and more about what image they think can make them money. And for sponsors, it's kind of the opposite of their image. Maybe Al Jefferson should be the NBA posterboy? Too soon? But seriously, this is just outrageous considering they're telling Kevin Love to not use swear words in his writing. Are you really telling me that drinking is better than swearing here and there? At any age?
