His flashiness and able to still create shots for himself and his team sets him far and above other PG's in the league. You won't find a better passer that makes it look so easy in the league.

2nd OT as I type this. Refs controlled the 4th and 1st OT, Wolves had both won til the refs decided that wasn't going to happen.

Though the refs tried their best, GREAT win for us tonight. Now off to Orlando not for fun and games at Disney World but to hopefully beat Shaq, Penny, Nick Anderson and the Magic.

Refs were trying to hand that to the Heat. Glad the Wolves were able to pull out the W

No love, Pek, Bazz last night and we actually had a huge lead on Magic but of course lost it and the game. I hope next year this team can actually stay healthy for at least 75 games but that might too much to ask. We got the Spurs on Tuesday and Bulls Wednesday would be nice to see a 2 game sweep there. We are locked into the lottery at 13th spot right now til the balls drop so wins won't hurt us now.

Bulls are a beatable team the players that were healthy just couldn't get another big win after beating the real championship contenders like Heat and Spurs.

Great win against another playoff team, Brewer came to play. Got the Kings, Warriors, Jazz rest of the way could go 3 for 3 but I would stake 2 outta 3 if I HAD to. We already clinched lottery pick so wins won't hurt that and I want to finish better than the 6-8 seeds in the East for giggles. Still possible.

As a Wolves fan, it really sickens me to see how pathetic the Eastern conference is.

The Wolves will continue to improve on this years season, but is it really going to matter? The West is so stacked, I can't realistically see them making the playoffs and doing much when they get there.


If the trend continues, I think the NBA needs to take some serious measures to improve the playoffs.

Maybe divide the league into 6 divisions, take the top 2 from each division and 4 Wild cards from the remaining teams with the best records.

That way, we would see teams like Memphis and Minnesota getting into the playoff picture instead of sub .500 teams from the East.

If you cant make it into the playoffs in your Division then you do not deserve to make it to the playoffs...that simple.

Being a victim of a "stacked" Western Conference does not mean The League should change the current structure of the playoffs.

Memphis would be 30 games above .500 playing in the Eastern Conference.

Geographically, they are closer to the East Coast than alot of teams.


Atlanta, on the other hand, would be 30 games under .500 in the Western Conference.

Expansion would probably be the best way to level the playing field.
Both Memphis and Minnesota got the short end of the stick when they joined the league. New Expansion teams in Seattle and Kansas City/Mexico City would move MN and Memphis to the correct conference.

Both teams would immediately challenge for the top seeds in the East and we can all chuckle and laugh about how things used to be.

Sadly Minnesota would still be stuck in the West, New Orleans and Memphis are more East than Minnesota is.

Geographically, yes, but look at the closest teams. The Bucks and the Bulls are both in the East. NO is close to the Texas teams and the Thunder. If he Wolves were in the East, they could get some rivalries going with teams close nearby.

I could see it going either way.

Should not lose to the Kings period. Horrible loss I want to see us finish above .500 so next game is a must win.

Horrible loss, Was hoping for a 2 games above .500 finish but will now have to settle for hoping for a .500 finish. Finishing .500 in the West is like 20 over in the East.

No it is not.

Wolves are 17-13 against the East this season. Let us say they play twice more games against the East. That is 34 and 26

You don't know that, It's a different mentality getting up to play West teams compared to the East teams.

Way to end the season looking like crap. Can't wait for the lottery pick to come hopefully we land someone good. Bulls had a 1.4% chance at Rose and got him so anything can happen.

The lottery is rigged man. Don't count on the Wolves getting the #1 until Love possibly leaves. Chicago got it because they were irrelevant for years and it was in the NBAs best interest for them to become relevant again

25 years no no #1 pick yet (with many chances at it). This ain't the year

We don't need the #1 pick, KG, Rubio. Love (yes was a trade), Dieng, Shabazz Were all mid-late lottery picks. Just get us a good spot to take McBuckets I'll be happy.

KG was a 5th pick
Rubio was a 5th pick
Love was a 5th pick (we picked 4th however)

How are any of those picks a mid-late? Mid round picks start AFTER the lottery (Pick 15) and late round picks are picks 25-30. None of the guys aside from Dieng were mid-late round as he was the only guy you listed that was picked outside of the lottery.

Those picks are also scattered over 20 years. What about all those picks from 5-25 where we whiffed? Wolves horrible draft record doesn't help. Give me a top 5 picks...sure Wolves can screw it up, but not as likely.
