    AK was best player on court again (18/6/0/0/4),
    I'm just trying to understand how 18/6/0/0/4 is better than 23/7/2/0/4 from one of his teammates and 22/3/7/0/1 from another.

    I get the love and all, but what was it that made someone that had a more efficient night not better that night? It's not about pretty. I will take 50% shooting and those stats every night from anyone no matter how ugly it is. They even had the same number of turnovers. I guess I'm curious if there are good reasons why Williams is crap when he performs like that, and AK is a hero.
    Gobert has a serious defensive gravity.

    Shved is arguable and possibly a better selection. His defense is still incredibly suspect, and he started taking some terrible off-balance jumpers in the fourth quarter during the attempted comeback, but for a rookie it was still a good to great performance.

    With Williams, the big argument would be whether his defense was as good as AK's in this game. I would say no, but it's arguable. On offense, the only difference was that he made two or three more bad shots this game than usual. He's a **** passer and a black hole, and in the second half, his inability to decide when/if to shoot was a significant detriment. Sure, he scored five more points, but on seven more shots. And he fumbled away at least two AK passes for easy layups, which were part of his turnovers.

    *shrug* Might be fanboyism on that one, but Williams just doesn't pass the eyeball test for me.

    It's possible, I don't live and die by stats because they don't tell the whole story. I know when AK is playing well he really helps the team a ton. I didn't watch the game, so I will take your word for it.

    On the off balance shots, I would have to see them. I see Wade, Lebron, Kobe etc... take fadeaway, off balance shots all the time that don't even touch rim. It just depends on if that is a shot they have practiced to create space, or if it's just him chucking and getting lucky.

    Thanks for the answer.

    For full disclosure, Derrick Williams is my least favorite kind of player, the kind that will keep shooting no matter what the situation or how well he's doing. Add in a very low basketball IQ and bleh.

    So, take anything I say about him with a grain of salt, I reckon.

    You just don't like him because he is black. Admit it!
    Life is like watching Fast and the Furious 6. It's not easy, most of the time it's just dumb and pointless, everything is fake, there is a lot of noise, but if you close your eyes and picture yourself in an open field or a quiet forest, you can maybe make it to the end without killing yourself.

    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.
