Dame is just insane right now. The guy cant be stopped at all. Crazy he's playing like madman and Portland still might miss the playoffs.

Every time I see Christian Wood going off for a big game it makes me want to Scream/Cry. When I saw him in SL play it was so obvious he was a man amongst boys and I screamed we have to sign this guy, but nobody heard me. The rest as they say is history.

Covington just hit the go ahead three with 28 seconds to go!

Just be grateful that the Tpups found Naz as their own hidden big man gem.
Rest in peace Mamba. There'll never be another Kobe.

Reid is very skilled. He has a long way to go to be on Wood's level. Hopefully he gets there.

There's a reason Wood has put up stats everywhere he's gone but never gotten an extended run at the NBA level. He's a black hole that makes Shabazz Muhammad look like John Stockton. Defensively he's consistently out of position as a team defender because he chases blocks and steals.

Orlando Magic President, Jeff Weltman said in podcast that Isaac will miss remainder of this season. That sucks.

I once suggested a trade of Tatum for Isaac on the TnT board and it was pointed out to me just how much time Isaac has missed. Dude has a ton of potential too which sucks. Hopefully he can get his body right.

I will feel bad for Andrew if he gets traded next season. Just like they did with DLo

Thank you Jeff Van Gundy for saying it. Talked about why nobody post up anymore, how you can't do crap to stop permioter players but post players get abused and raked like crazy but the refs ignore. The NBA has phased post play out and it's not worth it. I have been saying that.

I think you can't win if your best player is a big man because the post in not valued and its way harder for a big to impose their will. You can go inside, get your ass kicked, not get a call and have to take a tough shot. Guy like Lebron attacks, gets breathed on and he's going to the line. It's BS,

Used to be the other way around a great post big man could carry a team.

From this article: https://dunkingwithwolves.com/2020/02/13/minnesota-timberwolves-dragan-bender/

I have not seen him in the last year, and it is clear that he has improved his body considerably. I'd say that is not exclusively as stretch 4, to me he is more stretch 5 in our system.

We just don't have roster spots for these guys. They're trying to buy out Turner already just to likely convert either Martin or McLaughlin to a full contract, both of whom have shown more than Bender and who they both probably want to keep, so I'm just not sure where the space comes from.

Another big thing is that the Wolves and Turner are likely stalling on buyout talks due to Minnesota being like $600k over the tax and still wanting to carve out enough room to sign one of the two ways. I believe, and I could be wrong, but it would cost less to convert a two way than sign a min.

KAT missed the greatest All Star game of his generation. This one was legendary by all star standards. I would be pissed if this was the one all star game I wound up missing.

That is the most boring week of regular season... No rumours, no games, KAT is injured...
