Sloppy win tonight


Minnesota needs to play better. James needs to step up, Ricky Davis needs to be consistent. Good thing we have KG.

1-0 Wooooo

11-04-2006, 12:37 AM


Beat the Nuggs by 3!

KG is a beast. Along with Craig Smith. That kid can play!

Kg 27 and 15 boards.

Craig 20 points 0n 10-15 shooting.

Once again Foye 0 points :shakeno:

True but he isnt getting in the rotation. Right now Craig Smith are other rookie is doing great! The Denver announcers said he reminds them of a young Charles Barkley. Glad to hear that.

the fact that smith is getting into the rotation and foye isnt says something

11-04-2006, 12:55 PM
Randy Foye will be a solid player in this league, i will promise you that.

11-04-2006, 01:07 PM
Well Budd T-Wolves have less depth at the forward position. IT also seems like Smith will get more playing time after that preformance. Wolves are stacked at the guard position.

Dwayne Casey did the same thing with Rashad McCants last year. He believes in making rookies earn their minutes. Crait Smith definitely did that last night. And as was said above, the pups have much more talent at guard than at forward. Craig Smith is competing with Eddie Griffin and Mark Madsen for PT while Foye is competing with Mike James, Troy Hudson, Marko Jaric, Ricky Davis, and Trenton Hassel for time at PG/SG. That being said, I do think that Troy Hudson is being showcased right now, and hopefully, something gets done because when Rashad McCants comes back in January, there will be a major log jam at point guard and shooting guard.

Aside from that, I like what I've seen the last two games. James had a slow start game one, but played well last night. Blounts contributed both games and has played with a little energy. I don't expect Craig Smith to put up 20 points per game every night, but he's a load underneith the basket and has a sweet post up game. I'm not a big Ricky Davis fan, but he's done some good things the last couple of games, getting some boards and assists to go along with his scoring. Hudson has been good, so hopefully we can trade him before he gets hurt again. All in all, I have more hope for this team than I've had since game 20 of the 2004 season.

Smith is going to be a great bench player this year. He is a guy that can get atleast 12-15 points a night while KG is on the bench.

11-04-2006, 11:38 PM
As Minnphin said, Foye's struggles are because of Minny's guard depth.

Craig Smith, who I am shocked was not drafted by the Suns in the first round, is big (bulk wise), and is a scoring maching (dominated Shelden Williams in the ACC Championship game). He'll get time because Griffen can't score inside, Blount is a 15 foot shooter and can't rebound, and Madsen can't score.

Foye is going up against James,Davis,Jaric,Hudson (all of whom can score), and Hassell (who is a pretty good defender).

11-04-2006, 11:42 PM
Hassel is a good defender and thats all. Foye will get more playing time has the season rolls on. Minny is doing great right now.

11-04-2006, 11:53 PM
Wow way to go Casey keep Garnett on the bench and blow a 16 point lead :shakeno:

11-05-2006, 01:25 AM
Minnesota flat out choked in this game. Portland out scored Minny 18-5 in 9 mins (3rd qt going threw the 4th). Kg had a good look just couldn't finish.

Once again Foye 0 points. Roy was the diffrence maker.

woooow what a game.........you guys got a good team, if ricky davis wasnt chucking up shots i think you guys would be much better.......and again with roy his shots werent going down but he gets to the line and gets it done.............:woot: @ juan dixon and the whole blazer team.....good game though. i like minnys team

11-05-2006, 01:36 AM
God I just hate when we choke like that. KG had a great look for the final shot. Oh well I'll take a 2-1 start.

webster was freakin on fire! got damn he has been shooting lights out for 3 this year. majpain whats your take on ricky davis? i mean seriously i would rather have foye in the game then ricky davis.

11-05-2006, 01:47 AM
I dont like him. He isnt consistent enough. Again I wish we had Wally : /

Also the bench got out scored big time. I think it was 17-44 when they showed it in the 4th

intresting story...

The Trail Blazers played with fire, as if Saturday was all there was. They rebounded. They scrapped. And if you're among those searching for an explanation for their fury today, you should know the Blazers were called "a pack of roaches" by one of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

See, late in the second quarter with Minnesota leading by 11 points, guard Ricky Davis skated by the Blazers bench, and explained that Portland was nothing but a pack of bottom feeders that belonged in some dark corner underneath the league's kitchen sink.

The insult became the subject of conversation at halftime in the home locker room, including coach Nate McMillan who said he was personally insulted. So if you were among those wondering, "What got into them?!" while the Blazers, who won only 21 games last season, were rallying in the second half, it was this -- pride.

Then, in the locker room, Webster said: "That win goes against that entire team (in the other locker room). If you have any dignity, if you have any pride, hearing something like that puts a chip on your shoulder."

Then, the second-year guard muttered, " . . . roaches. . . . "


11-05-2006, 12:26 PM
Wow good job Ricky Davis you assclown. You got a young Portland team riled up.

11-07-2006, 01:13 AM
What a joke the Wolves are.

Worst team in the NBA. So disgusted in tonights game right now. No one is playing like they should be. KG isnt playing well, but he isnt getting help from his team. It doesn't help when the refs are favouring the Kings. Noah I hope you like it in Minnesota.

11-07-2006, 01:42 AM

nice to see a fellow BC alum doing something in the NBA.

go eagles.

11-07-2006, 01:10 PM
Yes Smith is doing a great job. I hope he puts on more solid preformances. I hope we make a trade for someone that score consistently.

11-08-2006, 01:59 AM
Another bad preformance by the T-wolves. They make to many errors. Kg's Double double streak ends tonight. His rebounding has gotten lower : /
Once again Minnesotas starting 5 is awful. I say trade the whole freaking team. Big out put by the rookies tonight.

Both Foye and Davis did great. The starting 5 with the exception from KG only scored 31 points..... Seriously we must have the worst front 5 ever. KG needs to goto a contenting team.

11-08-2006, 02:19 AM
KG is welcome to the lakers with open arms.:yes:

11-08-2006, 02:43 AM
KG is welcome to the lakers with open arms.:yes:

I was born in Cali so that would be great if he did.

11-12-2006, 12:56 AM
Yay 3 game losing streak. Minnesota is getting help from Foye finally. Are other rookie Craig Smith only 2 points. We need to bench Hassel. He is a horrible basketball player. 2 points?? Put in Jaric or Foye.

11-15-2006, 09:44 AM
Wooo finally snapped the 4 game losing streak. Ricky Davis showed up to play last night, Kg had a big game too. Portland didnt have Roy, Zach didnt do nearly as good as last time they played.

Garnett angered by rumors, not unhappy with Wolves

Kevin Garnett (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3007) has been through a lot in Minnesota, and he's not about to let the media tell him what he should be doing with his career.

On Sunday, the former MVP squashed rumors of his discontent in Minnesota and suggestions that he'd be better off searching for a championship elsewhere.

"I've never said I [was] unhappy," Garnett said after the Timberwolves beat the Philadelphia 76ers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=phi) 95-84. "I don't know where y'all get that [expletive] from. None of y'all have asked me that."

The team's lack of success in Garnett's 11 seasons in Minnesota -- they've won just two playoff series -- has led many to propose that it's time for a change of scenery for the beleaguered perennial All-Star. Though Garnett won't use the word "unhappy," he made no secret about where the criticism for the Timberwolves' struggles should be directed.

"People feel sorry for me?" Garnett said. "I don't go out and scout players. I don't do any of the front office stuff. This thing's bigger than Kevin Garnett.
I'm a piece, but ... I don't want nobody to feel sorry for me. I bust my [butt] to come in and be consistent every year. If you want to feel sorry for somebody, feel sorry for the people who put the team together and haven't put me in a position to be in those situations. Don't feel sorry for me."
