It reminds me of when we had Roco at 4 trying to guard big power forwards and everyone except Saunders and Rosas could see it was a major fail.

That's why we need to draft Okongwu or Wiseman.


I want a real power forward next to Towns which is why I said I want Aaron Gordon.

But the Wolves believe in that Rockets Philosphy of 1 guard, 3 wings, and a center. They have stated this a lot about trying to play “an analytics game and modern basketball.” Using Gersson own words.

IMO Okongwu would be a more real PF than Gordon. :D

LeBron needs one more assist to complete the Triple double. It may seem meaningless, but at the end of the series when they select the Finals MVP it could be the difference.

James 25-13-9 on over 50% with 50% from 3 and only 2 TOs. Still the best player in the league.

Look at the minutes breakdown for the Lakers. Dwight Howard played 15 minutes as the only true center in the rotation. The other 33 minutes of the game they went smaller with sliding Davis to center.

I can't say I love it as I don't want anybody hurt. However, the Lakers are going to destroy the POS Jimmy Butler led Heat and him not getting a title while LeBron gets another is some consolation.

I only watched the 4th quarter, but the announcers mentioned what a great job Howard did shutting down Bam. Davis is smaller than Howard, but he sure ain't small. LeBron ain't very small either. Go Lakers. Bigger and skillful beats smaller and skillful almost every time.

Many were assuming D'antoni was going to the 76ers, but it's Doc Rivers.

Bam and Dragic ruled out for game 3. Heat can't win without them. This series is pretty much over. Nice try Jimmy B, but you deserve this bad luck for your behavior while on the Wolves. I hope you never see another final. Congrats to LeBron. 10 Finals 4 titles is an amazing career and it's not done yet.

I'm holding back. :D
Should I tell you how I really feel. I believed in Butler and defended him til the end, but he proved what he really is.
Of course Miami wins tonight. :lol:

This is ridiculous. We chose Jimmy. We offered him everything we could. He turned a$$hole on us. We didn't choose anybody over him. We made a poor decision to sign Wiggins, but that didn't stop us from signing Jimmy later to a very large max contract. Only jimmy stopped that.

It would be fun. Wonder what we'd be giving up in those deals. Certainly #1, Culver, future FRP, and Beasley in deal for Booker

I watched some Nets highlights from the 2018-2019 season, oh boy that bench was fun to watch. They may not be good but that was enjoyable as hell
