Agreed.


Draft good players, period. If you draft mega busts with your top 10 picks and treat picks outside the lotto like it's some random shot in the dark that's little more than a burden on your balance sheet, then you do not have a winning team.

Find teams that know how to do that and pluck a young exec from their front office w/ some good buzz and give him a shot. If he sucks, feel free to fire him and try again. Wolves GM's seem like they have tenure from day 1.

Or atleast trade those picks for somebody that actually does something, since only Al, Love, Rubio and Pek were good pick-ups in post Garnett era.

And only Rubio was a Kahn pick... and Rubio wasn't being talked about being available at 5 for most of the pre-draft prognostications, so who was his REAL target? hmmm

Now that I look at it, he took Jonny, Ty and Ricky. Apparently Minnesota choose to go/was forced to go with the worst option in the end. But again you waste 3! First round picks solely on Point Guards and 4th being used on a SG, how dumb is that?
That draft was good one and Minnesota had 4 picks in first round and 2 second rounders,
Of those 4's in first round, one was a complete bust, one came too late, one was traded and became major player on a possible future contender, and 2 second rounders never saw this league.

Wouldn't be that surprising - dreams of an gigantic agile beast stopping every foray into the paint.

We really didn't take 3 PG's, we took 2 and traded a pick. When you think about it though, Jonny Flynn doubly screwed us over. Not only did he suck as the 6th pick, he was the reason we traded the 18th pick and didn't get Ty Lawson.
