Keith Bogans available

Do we jump on this? He is certainly an upgrade over what we have. I would love to see him as our starter, but I'm sure he would be wiling to take a backup role as well. How much will he cost?

Projecting Derrick Williams 2

I made an earlier attempt to project Derrick Williams (here), but rereading that post I am not entirely happy with it. I don't mind the Luis Scola and David West comparisons that I arrived at,...

Ed Weiland on combo-forwards

10

Not only does Weiland not see Derrick Williams as the #2 prospect in the draft, he doesn't even see him as the top combo-forward. Few scouts can claim as good of a track record projecting draft prospects as Weiland. Ignore his take at your own risk.

The Tragedy of Kevin Love

+

The numbers show what we all saw in person. Our team is historically terrible outside of Kevin Love and our organization's talent assessment and subsequent minute allocations leave little room for hope. Just think how much worse it would have been if Love's 30/30 game didn't force Rambis to start playing him. EDIT: After posting I realized that my editorial was depressingly negative..... let me add that Kevin Love is awesome, Kyrie Irving!!! Bismack Biyombo!!!! HOPE!!!

Can Kevin Love be the PF in a running offense?

I know, I know... Could I pick a more over-discussed topic?  The canned answer is, "Well of course he does.  He may be slow getting down the court, but there is much more involved in successfully...
