Dinwiddie must really suck if he couldn't even get playing time on bad Detroit teams (that's the type of rationale some have used on Malik Beasley)


If they were any good the cream would isntantly rise to the top all on its own.

Dinwiddie is only a figment of your imagination. Such a strange name to imagine, isn't it?

Grizzlies destroyed the Lakers. Can't believe they are so much better than us.

And Wolves destroyed the Clippers and beat the Heat. What's next?

I think the top of the West is full of semi soft teams hastily brought together that are still not great Teams yet. A jumble of talents that haven't even spent a full season together yet and full of players taking games off causing wholesome changes to how the play. Like the Clippers having no idea how the new Wolves would play.

But the Grizz are full of talents all of a sudden. Good drafting and good coaching decisions clicks fast I guess. Yet they just had a 5 game losing streak. So really, still issues there. What I can't believe is how little people talk about Valanciunas. Last season he was really heating up as the season went on and was scoring in the 30s regularly before an ankle injury. This year he doesn't have to score as much with all the talents they have now, but for instance, over the past two games he has 45 boards! Against Lakers, he had 22 pts and 20 rebounds. For comparison sake, Dieng had 2 pts 6 boards in 21 mins. Against Lakers Jonas V's size is probably very useful but he's not that much larger than Dieng. There is a difference in ability.

Valanciunas had 31 mins
Dieng had 21 mins
So it looks like there was some overlap there.

When Wolves played Lakers it was Towns, Convington, Dieng, Vonleh, Bell all chipping in. Not the same. For instance, Lakers had 41 boards and Min had 31. In the Grizz game, Lakers had 45 boards and Grizz had 51.

I have just read that Morey was ready to draft Clarke and trade for RoCo type wing last off-season. Imagine HOU playing with two PJ Tucker now. Imagine how HOU FO vision is different from others. It is different from my vision of NBA and modern basketball.

He's got two unique and established/verified allstar combo guards. Harden by himself was enough. These guys make whatever strange plan they have work.

Exactly. Westbrook is not getting smarter or better shooter. Morey just opened completely the door for him.

I suspect he's referring to the 50 different Karl Malone threads... but the one about him and Vince Carter vs. KG and T-Mac has a link to a fun vintage wolves game. Might be worth the risk to find it.

I have personally locked what feels like double-digits of those Malone threads, the virus is 100% real over there. :lol:

Crowder is another one of those players I see as attainable every other year and yet the team never seems to go that route. Then once they are too old to play at their prime level, the rumors start surfacing with Wolves possibly interested. Maybe he's getting to that range? I don't know his age. I've always seen him as a player picking up his team when they are in the doldrems. That's when he starts clicking from 3 and surprising on the defensive end. Got to respect that.
