    It's a little awkward, but Derrick Williams and Brandon Roy probably both need to be demoted from the starting lineup. That won't seem white supremacist at all.

    Brandon Roy situation might be taking care of itself. He's having to get knee surgery.

    Disappointing. He was probably the third reason I was excited to follow this Timberwolves team. Doesn't end his season, really, but seems to be evidence that his early poor play was more than just rust.

    I predicted the Brandon Roy problems as soon as I heard he'd be coming back. Now we're just waiting for AK and his back spasms to catch up.

    Surprise Kevin Love activation. Time for this thread to hit the next layer of annoying.

    7/8/2/3/1 in a loss to the Nuggets. Boxscore is actually better than it should be, since he was pretty ineffective on both offense and defense.

    Too soon to draw any real conclusions from this game, but I suspect this is going to be AK's worst stretch of the season until December without a significant lineup change. Ridnour has little to no creativity as a point guard and Love/Pek are not good passing big men. Love is a good enough player that they can still win some games, but it's going to be a few weeks of the Jekyll/Hyde offense we had tonight.

    Yee. This team is turning into last year's Jazz. Way too many people fighting for minutes at three spots (PF/SF/C), hardly anyone to play at two other spots (SG/PG), plus contracts/high draft picks have created some rough situations where playing time doesn't necessarily equal contributions. Several problems could be solved by playing Shved/Barea--dribble penetration and better passing, though more bad decisions--over Ridnour, who is absolutely terrible at being a point guard, but doesn't seem to be in the offing.

    And y'all will be happy to know that for the last three games AK has in fact looked like '10/'11 AK.

    Not super familiar with Kevin Love's game, but his basic defense outside rebounding seems pretty rough, as well as his passing. Is this accurate?

    Is rebounding considered defense? I am unclear on this....

    If so, Boozer was a helluva defender.

    I saw Rubio doing some pre-game sprints on NBA gametime this morning and couldn't help but perk up a bit. I need somebody to save the PG spot in the NBA for me. I need a Peyton Manning of the NBA to watch. Don't let me down Ricky.

    Rubio is the cure for what ails the team, no doubt. Just hope the team can stay afloat until he gets here.

    AK missed practice this morning with back spasms.

    And so it begins.

    yet he played 41 min and produced 14pts,6reb,5ast,3blk. and Wolves won. K.Love was monster with 23/24 game.
    Exum = Biggest bust in Jazz history.

    Rubio cleared for full-contact practices. Get excited.

    AK was good not great last night. Four turnovers, none of them particularly defensible. Did have a key exchange with a block on one end and a great pass for an easy layup on the other during crunchtime.
