D’Angelo Russell “definitely did not want LaMelo with the Timberwolves”

At this point, I think most contributors to the board know the type of poster you are.

Regarding Russell not wanting Ball, it wouldn't surprise me if it was true. Rosas, I believe, is trying to make it clear to Russell he's found a home here in Minnesota, something LA, Brooklyn and Golden State chose not to provide. If Ball was the selection, that would say otherwise.

The opinion of people that matter to me is my woman and my family and friends.

I’m here for my love of basketball and my favorite squad, that’s it.

I’ve been on the Ball bandwagon this entire time. I hope passing on him isn’t a huge mistake. Me personally, if we could undo the Russell trade, get our pick for next year back, and take Ball, I would go that route.

To recap, the game is to choose one prospect and spam a board -- creating daily threads when posting it in one draft thread would have sufficed. Bash the other potential prospects in the process. Do this while also fixating on one PF in the league. Post trade after trade on said PF. Watch as draft night comes and your prospect is not selected. Respond by saying you're fine with the one that was drafted, though you thoroughly argued against for the past few months. A day later continue to post on the one prospect you had so desperately desired.

Some game...

DLo still mad Lakers traded him for Lonzo.


Or he knew that Ball wouldn't help them win and was mostly hype.

Oh was "DLo still mad Lakers traded him for Lonzo." a direct quote from them?

Per @DraftExpress


That's not an answer, I already read that part. It's your editorial that I was arguing against.

I knew he didn't want him, but I'm shocked he said so. That's not how the politics are played.

Was a link offered to see if Draftexpress put those quotation marks there? I didn't notice. I am surprised if he talked about it with anyone as well. But when asked at the lotto event when Wolves won #1 Dlo openly said ideally he would like them to trade it for something like a win now player.

Yeah if those quote marks aren't taken into account it could just be draftexpress speculating Russell didn't want him and I would agree with that speculation. I doubt Russell said anything about not wanting Ball.

Did Russell say it or did Draft Express say it. Big difference.
