FIRE MCFALE.................

53 posts in this topic

Just when I thought Mcfale couldn't get any dumber, he goes and trades Mayo for Love........MCFALE you FAILED us again! This is the 3rd strike for him! I hope the fire him! Strike 1 went to the Ray Allen for Mabuary trade, strike 2 is the Brandon Roy for Foye trade, now strike 3 will be the Mayo for Love trade.........

Couldn't agree more. The front office has no idea how to build a team. Not to mention draw fans with some exciting players. Whoever pulled the trigger on this deal had the gun pointed in the wrong direction.

WHat was the Ray Allen trade about? did we used to have him? sorry i dont follow basketball that much...

I was excited to see that OJ Mayo though and dissapointed this morning when I found out we traded him for Love. Love just looks like a sluggish big man

Yea, we drafted Ray Allen and then traded him for Starburry. Worked out well huh? Look what he and KG did this year? Imagine having them together their whole carriers?

Frankenberry is a looser and should go. Hear Hoiberg on KFAN this morning and he loved getting OJ, said he got up and found out about the trade in the paper. Huh? You work in the front office and you found out about this trade in the paper? Anyone else see a problem with this? Why is one guy making all the choices?

at least they got rid of some of the other bad moves. and added a couple of nice pieces. they still need a star to compete. not that he's a true 'star', but hinrich(sp) may be out of a job.

You didn't get the MEMO and Crystal Ball before the draft that tells you how 18-22 year old kids will pan out in the NBA?

I like the trade and think we addressed over all needs quite well.

Of course the media jackels and know-it all fans will tell you different.

Solid trade. Miller can ball and Cardinal isn't that bad and can shoot from the outside. Collins will be a back up at center. We got rid of 3 guys that were dead weight. I like the trade.

Just watched the press conference, was nice to hear their rhyme and reason why they traded O.J. What is Cardinal though, 3 years pro but is 37!! Man, they could not get rid of him in college. MAc said if Chalmers would have came in there would have been no room for him anyways. So I guess they can hope for the future with those pics.

This wasn't Mayo for Love. In essence it was Mayo for Love & Mike Miller. Mike Miller is a really good basketball player. He is not a superstar. He will make the Wolves much better.

I would not trade Mayo for Love. However we don't know if either Love or Mayo is going to be a good or great player. We do know the Wolves got a solid player from this trade and this is alot more than they have gotten in the vast majority of their prior first rounds picks.

I can understand the dump of salary stiffs but it would be nice to see some exciting talent on the team. McHale just hasn't made very many smart decisions in his day. I guess it's not just him making the decisions but he probably has the most pull or the final vote. He's hasn't proven that he can do the job well so I think it's time to bring in someone proven to take over.

Why do you trade a guy that looks like when he matures that could be an all-star. There is nothing exciting about love, he might be a good player but I can't see him being all-star. Yeah great we got miller and so on what does that do for us?? Just enough wins not to get a elite player in next years draft!!!! Just crappy enough to not make the play-offs. You got to go for the guy with the up side, come on we are in a rebuilding mode anyways!!! You take the best player available and that was OJ and hang on to him and build around him and jefferson! Yeah we dumped salaries, but we got some crappy ones back too. I just don't get this team!!!! And don't give me that we got some nice piecies from memphis, this trade would have been good if we were a play-off team and needed a few players to make that jump to contend, HELLO we are not that team.

Is there something I need to sign to get on the fire McHale band wagon?

I would have fired him years ago. Why bother worying about a high draft pick with that chuckle head running the show, he is just going to trade them away anyways.

I heard rumors that Mayo wanted to be in a big market. Sounds like he wants to be the center of attention and wants the limelight. If this is true, he could be a headcase...like Marbury. Well, he won't get the big market in Memphis and lets see what happens when he becomes a free agent. If Memphis is still bad and he turns out to be as good as people say then some team will pony up some riduculous money to lure him away. I didn't mind the trade either. The team helped themselves in many ways. And I think Love has good pedigree in hoops.

I totally agree with you A R Johnson! I thought we are suppose to be in a rebuilding stage of our franchise. Trading Mayo doesn't make sense in the rebuilding process. We get Miller who is 28. I don't see many more years left in those legs. Then we get Love who will play the power forward, which means Jefferson is going to have to play the position he doesn't want to play. And that is all we need is to get our star player not happy on where he is playing. I guess we could put Love at the center spot...Personally, if we are rebuilding, I rather be a crappy team and get a higher draft pick next year, then to be a team that is so so and we get a mid 1st round pick.

As the back of my Twolves jersey says FIREMCHALE!!!!

When you look at the numbers we really didn't free up much money. Kind of a bad contracts for bad contracts swap. Except we got a role player out of our lottery pick. woo hoo! sick

Why cant love play the 3??

Maybe because he might be matched up to players like Pierce, Lebron, Dirk, and Carmelo. Just to name a few. I think he would be better to gaurd a power forward who plays down low instead of a forward who can go to the hole or shoot the jumper.

Mike Miller and Brian Cardinal have 2 yrs left and Jason Collins has one year left. Marko and Buckner have 3yrs left and Walker has one year left.

Love and Mayo haven't even played a NBA game yet. Give them a couple of years.

I don't know that much about Mayo, but it seems some people were leary of a little trouble in his past. I know I'm tired of head case draft picks like Christian Laetner, Stephon Marbury, and Isaiah "J.R." Rider. Seems they should look at the mental aspect harder. There are no crystal balls. Only time will tell.

With the way mayo acted when we picked him initially I am glad he didn't end up with us. Him and his "posse" looked like somebody let the air out of their tires. He has headcase written all over him.

    • Look again  HSO Baby
    • 39 HERE IN THE boat on Hidden Bay, yesterday we had sleet and snow and the furnace was running when I got home, things I do not want to see hear towards the end of March. Was in the big city yesterday at the clinic, Thursdays are chemo days so I was hooked up to an IV for most of the day. However I did spend most of my day chatting up the guy who was sitting next to me. Interesting fellow he was before retiring the CEO of a hospital and spent a lot of his down time on a northern lake that is on my bucket list to fish. What better way to learn a lake then by someone who has fished it for the past forty years. I am hoping to share a chair alongside of him next Thursday. When I was getting blood drawn I sat next to yet another interesting guy. He to was retired but I was to find out that he worked at Cape Canaveral for thirty years where he was a jig and fitting’s guy. His job was to take an idea and make it real for the rockets they launched there. Another guy was sitting behind us ease dropping and he pitched in that he new a guy who lived in a small town up the shore who was also retired and his job was to fly a helicopter and pull the astronauts out of the ocean when they landed. Funny where local guys land up and what jobs they acquire. I gave all three of them Lodge business cards, would be interesting future Lodge members.   So the good and bad part of doing chemo is last week was a great week, Since I was last in the hospital I took on a huge amount of water weight. Last week I lost twenty-one pounds I was a very happy camper when I got off the scale, Hope to repeat it again this week, now the bad part is I am back on steroids and I have to take them for three days running after every treatment, the side effect is insomnia. Last night I only slept two hours and then I was wide awake, So at five this morning I made big batch of chili and took my time dicing everything by hand. Should be done here soon and I already called Elmer and Chuck to come over for late lunch.   Even though it is cloudy out you can tell the sun is up longer and higher in the sky, my seedlings in the South window are finally starting to grow and even the tobacco is becoming bigger then dots. Only a month before stuff should go out to the greenhouse and two months before we start planting in what was looking to be an early spring, now I am not so sure. I did roll a few cigars an I am getting better at it, I am surprise at how much tobacco leaf I am using up on a single cigar. I may have to plant more then I was planing this summer.   It was nice to go to the big city though, I have been locked away in the cabin most of the winter and the fresh air is good for me. The wife is none too happy as I am building a pretty good Honey Do List of my own! for her her at Lake Iwanttobethere

    • I'm sure the resident silly town neocons will respond with a meme blaming libertarians
    • So the GOP controls the house, the senate and the Whitehouse and they can't do anything with it, probably a good thing. 
    • All this winning......   Hillary in jail Wall Street reigned in Swamp drained Obamacare repealed Budget balanced Border wall built.   And it's only Friday.   Take the rest of the week off.
    •   Will that be like Wal-Mart with ENTER and EXIT gates?
    •   Their fun to run around a campground on. One of them that I got was someone in our campground who had it and just could not get it to run right and kept fouling plugs out and it ran bad with a lot of smoke. He had it sitting under a tarp for a year as he had given up on it. I asked him what he mixed his oil at? He said 50-1. I said I'll take it and got it for $200. I brought it over to my camper and drained all the gas out and mixed it 80-1 as I know that the book on them said to run them at 100-1. So, new mixed gas and a new spark plug and a hour later I'm running all over the campground with it! He was shocked to see it running so well. Lol
