Waiting for the Sun? (Report Card of Pups v. Suns, 3/23/14)

Well, I assume the game recap for this one should be easy for EiM and the rest of the writers on CH. "Microcosm of the season!" (seriously how many games this season could fit this description?). ...

Wolves v. Wiz, a Ricky Story

I'm going to try to keep this brief, for all of our sakes. This was two bad teams going at it on a mid-March Wednesday night on the Frozen Tundra. I didn't get the feeling that many (either...

Everyone get ready!

For the "Love is insulted by the Wolves contract offer!". In fact, it's already arrived here. I would suspect that next will come the "Love wants to go to California / Portland / Dallas" next. ...

Great in-Season Performances: Requiem Edition

"It's always a good night when you can talk about Moses Malone".  1 year and 2 days ago, KLove went for 31-31.  Seems like a long time ago, but we were barely 2 weeks into the season last year when...

Unfortunately, it really isn't "simple"

I’m as bummed as anyone that it now appears that we won’t be having any basketball before January 2012 (and that’s the best case scenario – my prediction is that we won’t see basketball before the...

Missing Persons Report: Have You Seen This Point Guard?

If there has been one thing that has been remarkably consistent over the past few weeks from this wildly inconsistent team it is this:  Jonny Flynn has been beyond terrible.  How terrible? So...

Is this the rightanded B-Easy? Kinda reminds me of the AP photo of him on the front page.

It keeps getting stranger . . .

Tom Penn (every Hoopus reader's favorite GM / POBO candidate) got fired yesterday.  .  . From TrueHoop (via the Oregonian): John Canzano of The Oregonian: "The Trail Blazers fired vice president...

Our 2 Guards Like the Cold

As we all know, apparently January is the best month to be a 2 guard for the Twoles.  Since it just ended, I thought it would be worthwhile to compare the Month of Foye and the Month of Brewer: ...

Hollinger's Playoff Odds -- Draft Picks for Us?

3

Only interesting thing here (other than the fact that we have a 0% chance of making the playoffs this year) is that Charlotte is the 6th most likely team to make the playoffs in the East (though it's bunched). Based on his calcs, I'd say it's pretty likely we're getting their pick. Utah would appear to be pretty likely too, particularly after they rebounded to the loss against us with a victory over the Spurs.

Love's In

According to Zogs, Love will play tonight. Even if it's for 6 minutes, this is a positive. We need all the reasons we can find to watch this team.

Start working on your Gay Sign-n-Trades

Some here are more enamored with Gay than I am. But if he starts showing that he wants to take the ball to the rim and get to the line regularly, we could do a lot worse. I also generally think that given all the teams that are looking to have cap space this summer, the more supply of quality talent there is out on the market the better. Plus, Memphis has the type of ownership (a la Milwaukee) that may consider letting an RFA go rather than matching his offer.

Wolves TV schedule announced

Down to 55 games, from 75 last year.  I think the difference is all due to fewer channel 45 games, since there are the same number of FSN games (40). (Ed Note: I called the League Pass folks and...

More info from unnamed sources on 4-letter (but this time it makes sense)

1

I'm shocked that it's going to turn out that the most logical explanation is going to be the correct one: 1. RRs draft slide cost him money and makes the buyout harder (it's about $$) 2. It's in everyone's best interest to talk up the threat that he won't play in the NBA (that will lower his buyout, saving him $$) 3. He won't sign a long-term deal with another euro team b/c he wants to get to the NBA (the sooner he gets here, the sooner he can be an UFA -- again its about the $$) 4. If some other team or his agent can get him traded to a bigger market, that's good for him (more $$ in endorsements, but not so much more $$ that it makes sense for him not to play for the wolves) 5. Either way, he wants to get to the NBA (remember, NBA=$$ for RR and his agent)

Ford's Notes on Day 1 of the Chicago Camp

+

He has good things to say about Jrue holiday and now has him going 4th in his Mock Draft. Also nice things to say about Curry and DeRozan. Not so much nice things to say about Lawson. I'm thinking he may be available at 18 . . . Mullens and Blair seem to get good reviews as big men.

Simmons Praises Love's Situation

1

I know he isn't the favorite author of everyone on this site, but he does follow the NBA closely and he commented on Love in his chat today (he also disses Mayo a bit. Nick (Seattle, WA): I have Zach Randolph, Chris Kaman, DeAndre Jordan, and Fred Jones on my terrible fantasy team. My worst fantasy team ever. I actually "signed" Fred Jones while he was still under his 10-day contract with the Clips. I feel a special kinship with the Clippers this year. I'm from Seattle, I enjoy the torture. Bill Simmons: I gotta say - Dunleavy gets props for the Gordon/Jordan picks. But were good values for where they got them. Does it make up for Yaro Koralev over Danny Granger? of course not! Not in a million years. But Jordan is probably my favorite Clip. He really tries out there... he gives a crap. Gordon could go either way... he's developing bad habits carrying a bad team which scares me. Same for Mayo in memphis actually. Of all the rooks, Kevin Love is in the best situation right now...
