Wolves @ Lakers - Game 3 - 10PM ET / 8CT / 7PST 

Post#1 » by theGreatRC » Sun Dec 27, 2020 9:01 pm

First back to back of the season & KAT might not play..but AD is also out, but the Lakers still have Lebron James and he historically owns us.

What are we looking forward to for tonight's game?

I think this is the type of game Edwards want to show the league what he can do. He seems to want the spot light games and early in his career this is the game he probably looking forward to.

Brow out. KAT probably out too is my best guess. LeBron playing it appears. Have to give the GOAT props. He's old and dinged out coming off a season that just ended a month ago, but he's still going to play.

I lost a lot of respect as a fan for James with “The Decision” but you can’t deny his greatness. Who is going to guard him tonight? Okogie? Juancho might have to file for Disability after the game if they ask him to.

Josh & Culver are the best we can throw at Lebron, which is scary to think about.

I kinda wanna put Ant on Bron, just to see how Ant responds to that :lol: I know KD is his favorite player, but just imagine Ant on Bron..

You lost a lot of respect for James for deciding to use his celebrity to raise 5 million dollars for the Boys and Girls clubs. Sure it was a little in bad taste, but the result was amazing and James could have pocketed that 5 million, but he did it for a very worthwhile charity.

Worried he may press too much tonight in an effort to impress.

He's been described as "cool as a cucumber" I don't think he'll do anything out of character...might bump this post to eat my own crow if I'm wrong

A lot of players donate to charity. It doesn’t excuse his “poor taste” or gross self-promotion. He also started the “stars to bigger markets” trend that threatens to ruin any resemblance of balance left in the NBA.

It sure isn’t all Bron’s fault by any stretch of the imagination and by all accounts he’s a good person and great dad. None of that dismisses the entire hoopla of his FA announcement that he created and promoted himself. It was a terrible debacle in his career and one I choose not to forget as a fan.

With all of that said, KG, there’s plenty about Lebron to respect and praise. Hasn’t he been in like 9 of the last 10 NBA Finals or something close to that? That’s just ridiculous.

My expectation is that Davis being out actually increases the chances that Towns plays tonight.

Is it because KAT wants no part of AD....or?

Agreed KAT should play tonight even if he's hurting as long as he can't hurt his hand anymore.If the MRI cameback clear like its been reported we need him to win this game.Just focus on playing defense and rebounding and let D'LO,ANT & Beasley carry the offensive load tonight.

There would be nothing sweeter than that, Neeva. Dumping Wiggins and a FRP in the 15-25 range in exchange for a key part of our rotation in Russell would be a tough spin for GSW fans.

I want us to continue with the incredible hustle and gritty attitude we played with so far.


And hope we can survive Lakers size without embarrassment. Okogie on their bigs would be kinda ridiculous lol. Good thing AD is out.



And please Jake and Juancho, score atleast 1 pt this time.

That is a waste of a wish; you should ask for more.
