Pek in Cleveland?

The Pek situation has me concerned. My hope is that he gets overlooked and the Wolves can keep him for cheap - say around $8M a year. I think this is quite possible considering the cap tax...

Hiding the FanPosts?

Is it just my browser or have unrecommended FanPosts been buried off the front page? If so - terrible idea. Keep the recent fanposts where they can be seen on the front page.

Our CBA Hail Mary - with poll

  The last draft was fun, but now clipper-geddon is upon us.  As much as the Wolves improved talent and coach wise (presumably), the team is still more likely to collect ping-pong balls than wins...

How Hasheem Thabeet Made Me Happy

Actually it was Chris Wallace, but I experienced five minutes of fist pumping joy in 2009 when Memphis burned their second pick on Thabeet.  It meant players I liked (Rubio, Curry, Harden) were one...

T-Wolve's System is Doomed

I fully believe that the only way for the Wolves to compete in the NBA is to have a "System".  Waiting for lottery luck to furnish a can't miss savior is not a strategy.  Getting sufficient talent...

The Hasheem Thabeet Approach to the Draft
