Did You Watch?

24 posts in this topic

Ok, it is only the summer league but i decided to watch the 1st summer league game on nba HSOforum. After 1st half O.J.Mayo looked great with at least 3 highlight film shots- oneat the buzzer at the end of 1st half.

Kevin Love after one half looks like he is out of his league. Last one down the court on almost every possession. Turning the ball over and forcing up 3 pointers that are not even close.

now i know it is only summer league and just one half, but after watching this i am sick to my stomach. in my very honest opinion we messed up--- should have kept the Mayo

Sounds like he was much better in the second half and he finished with 18 points and 13 boards.

Still, I'm a little worried that the only thing they ever talk him up on is his outlet passing.

Don't forget about Mayo dunking on someone too. That was sweet!

Did't love have like 4 or 5 fouls too? Makes you think what will really happen when he is up against veterens in the NBA. Not pretty.

Yeah, I think i heard he had like 4 or 5 fouls right out of the gate...but you get 10 in the games i thought i heard.

Love wasn't known for defense...suppose to have the offensive weapons and passing skills to help. Also a decent rebounder.

Anyone ever think that the timberwolves had Garnett and Ray Allen at one point...maybe they could have went after Paul Pierce back then, oh well!

Pretty consistent games by Love. Through 3 games, a 21 point average, 15 boards, 2 assists, a block...all in thirty minutes. Defense needs work, but learns quickly and gobbles up rebounds against smaller and larger players.

Dunks and jump hooks are all worth the same. Nothing better than a big man using a drop step and going up with power for 2.

We won't know for sure what we have until the real games start. Mayo and Love are both playing against the same competition in these summer league games though so you have to give Love some credit.

Maybe the Wolves will be in seattle by then???

being a west coaster, i saw both play on the tube alot. i think mayo got too much highschool hype, i just never saw it. love was a really good big man for a school with a history of really great big men. mayo reminds me of ricky davis. tons of talent, but just doesn't get it. love has a sweet touch, but painfully slow. he will get destroyed by todays nba big men (howard, bosh, kg, etc.) but, how bout those outlet passes!

So much for Love being to slow to play in the NBA.

He has exceded all expectations to this point.

A+ for McHale on this move.

But did you see what Mayo did last night?

Sure did he played 40 minutes scored 28 points had 1 rebound and ZERO assist "again" ZERO blocks and 2 turnovers.

Where as Love who is a much better all around player team wise and Mike Miller combined for 39 points 16 rebounds 9 assist 4 blocks and ONE turnover.

I understand the average fan will look at the total points scored and make their determination. But there is a lot more to winning or fundamental sound basketball then throwing up 20 shots a game not rebounding, playing defense, turning the ball over and not passing like Mayo has and will continue to do.

So far it's game, set, match for Love over Mayo and throw in Miller the best of the 3 players and it's a NO_BRAINER in favor of Wolves!

Go Vikes grin

I agree the Wolves at this point got the better of the deal......remember we also shipped off Walker and Jaric!! Mayo could be a star someday in this league but he is not going to be a superstar......Love on the other hand has the chance to be a 15pts-10 reb-5 assist guy in this league matched with his D and intensity he will be a great player for years!!! Mchale might just get this GM thing down!! Now if they wouldn't have sent Chalmers to Miami for nothing.............

I agree, I'm liking the deal more each time I watch Love play. Despite being undersized, he guarded Duncan much better than Jefferson did last night and had 3 blocks to boot.

You're right Ozzie, giving Chalmers away for nothing was stupid. We could use him right now as it looks like Telfair is our best option at the point which is scary.

I wasnt saying we didnt get the upper hand of the deal, I did watch most of the game last night, and liked what I seen from Miller and Love, I liked the trade to begin with and still do. I was just saying that Mayo did fairly well as well. This is a great young team with a future! Unlike it was when KG was here.

Disappointed in the finish last night, but LOVE'd the effort!

Love has been impressive. I thought he was going to get eaten alive down low when people were talking about what to expect from him in the NBA.

Awesome defense and rebounding. Uses his body well, runs the floor, positional defense, great passing. You gotta love him. Mayo is going to have nights he goes off scoring-with no dimes. I'd almost take Love straight up right now. Plus, he wants to be here!

    • Actually, you just chose not to.

    • I've had a Marcum camera for many years and have found it extremely educational.  When I take new anglers on the ice, they love watching the fish.  Never had the camera spook a fish.

       

      I used a Marcum battery-powered panner to rotate the camera, and that helps identify my lure.  However, you also have to be pretty confidant with the depth of your jig, so that it will show up on the camera.

       

      I've found the camera of limited value during the summer, because it's constantly moving up and down, and a little side to side.  Even if I can find my jig, it's not for long.  What I use the camera for during soft water season is to identify bottom structure and get a general idea what's down there.  

       

      During hard water season, I use it primarily to see bites before they happen.  Not only do I know exactly what's near or looking at my jig, but I can see when they're actually going after it.  I have pulled the hook away from fish that were obviously too small, and also been able to set the hook on a bite before I could feel it.

       

      I love my flasher, but I have out-fished buddies with my camera.

    • Now that's funny.  I chose not to answer a ignorant question that an elitist like yourself could care less the answer to.  The only reason you want an answer to that question is to spend the next week trying to find some ignorant reason he/she is a bad choice. #rentfree
    • But you couldn't articulate who your favorite Trump picks for justices were, or why.
    • Many of the resorts / cabins where I stay on weekend fishing outings do not have a fish cleaning house. I also do not like the smell of dead fish from the cleaning process in my home. My wheel house is a fishing shack only, non-sleeper, which I take off the ice each night. It has both A/C and propane heat so I usually plug it into an AC outlet at night.   I decided to build a retractable / drop-down fish cleaning table 17” x 48” up and out of the way while on the ice and a warm place to clean fish. I use clear news print between the my fish cleaning board and the table to eliminate the need to wash the table every time I use it. Functionally works well, still needs some finish touches, paint, stain, rust treatment. I can also see many uses for this table while on the Ice. Fish Cleaning Table.mp4
    • Big win for the team today. Not many folks thought they would go into Carolina and leave 3-0. If this offense can get their sh$t together this may be a fun year. Defense is the real deal.
