Wolves

60 posts in this topic

It was a nice game by the Wolves last night. Love looked good in the second half. We may just win 35 games this year. With season opener less then a week away, how many wins do you predict for this season? I will say 35-40 missing the playoffs again.

I wouldn't get to pumped over a pre-season game. I will say 20-23 games this year and a top 3 lottery pick.

I would have to agree with that one, 20-25 wins. They are still a very young team and there is much better talent on the other teams from the Western Conf.

Ya that OJ Mayo trade looks like it is going to bite us in the rear, but only time will tell.

oh I am going to be the homer on this one as this is my fav. MN team and I am going to say they win 32-37 games.....They have a better squad than last year and they won 22 games last year and lost a few last year in the 4th...with Foye healthy and the addition of Mike Miller we will definatly win 30+............I hope!!

I think a # 8 seed in the playoffs is in the mix--

Corey Brewer I heard was much improved

What I have seen of them they haven't impressed me at all. After watching(Wed. night) love missing baskets when he is right under the basket I just had to turn the channel. Why god why did we make that trade?

They got some good bit players in the trade. I like Mike Miller to keep help defenders honest. Mayo probably would have walked away when his rookie contract expired. At least Love wants to be here. Who wants a Vancouver-Steve Francis situation?

I like them to win 31 games. That is my prediction. 31-51. They'll show some flashes. Hopefully they can add some free agents next year and score a nice draft pick.

Anybody going to season opener? I got free tickets in row 8 so I'm gonna be there. These will be the best seats I've had and hope that it will make the game more interesting than the last game I went to, which was the worst professional sporting event I've ever seen.

I'm hoping they do well, but I don't have a lot of faith in the team. I'll still go to a few games, I enjoy basketball, but I hope they get something together soon and start to compete.

Crazy guy on the fan said we will win 52 games -- I don't think so, but we will be much much better, competitive and close. I think we will lose 20 3-point games. But that is getting better.

My girlfriend got some free tickets for the opener tonight. We will be in 112.

I have only been to one game, and that was in a suite. We will see how being close to the court is.

Was a decent game for the little I watched it. They looked good for how young they are and got a win. How'd you like the close seats Tom? I try to go to a few every year.

I think they'll win around 30 games. They'll be a fun team to watch as their offense will be pretty dynamic when then get used to playing together. Their defense really sucks though, Brewer is the only guy on the roster that can defend his position.

I thought Love looked great in the win. They were like +20 with him on the court, Wittman should have played him more. I know it's only one game, but Mayo was like 5/20 from the field. He's gonna take a ton of shots this year on that team.

i dont know bout the uniforms, but the court looks awesome. they copied the mavs tho with the logo by the 3 point line. i watched bits and pieces, they will suprise people. 35-45 wins, 7th or 8th seed

Boy, I don't get that one. Down by 3 to Oklahoma City after leading by 12 and Miller doesn't take the final shot? Great game by Randy Foye. 0 for 10 and 2 points. Meanwhile Brandon Roy is averaging 20 a game. Ouch.

i cannot get used to the court. the announcers say it looks sharp, but it clashes, horribly.

    • Honestly I'd rather just face the Hawks whenever we get our shot, we are either good enough or we are not. This the first year we have been better than them for the entire season, I say bring em on. I don't want to trade anyone away right now, havingn a guy like Scandella on the bottom pair makes us that much better. Throw some picks at a rental and keep our depth, no reason to make any drastic moves. We should be warry of San Jose too, they have a very solid team and made the trip last year but everyone else should be beatable if we play like we can and don't run into a hot goalie.
    • Pope suggests it's better to be an atheist than a bad Christian. CNN   Count me among those saying, "I don't share your beliefs, but you're one awesome pope. Keep on rocking."    

    • What is more likely, that your half of the media, gov & courts are honest and trustworthy and the other half is trying to destroy the world. Or that both sides are playing the public to enrich & empower themselves via a broken and corrupt system. Picking a side in this mess is playing the game by their rules. Your basic salami tactics to control the masses.

    • Sounds like there is still some good snow up the Gunflint. I sent an email to Bearskin lodge about their web cam not working and got a reply.   "That's correct. The repaired webcam has broken again, unfortunately, so only the same picture gets sent.  It is fairly inaccessible because of deep snow, but someone will be going out soon to take it down so we can get it fixed again.  It will probably have to be put up in a new place, which will disappoint people who have been keeping running snaps of the photos to make video.   For what it's worth, it looks exactly the same now as it did when that picture was taken.  Winter tends to look the same everyday here."   Sue Bearskin Lodge   -----Original Message----- From: Steve A Sent: Thursday, February 23, 2017 11:10 AM To: stay@bearskin.com Subject: From the Bearskin Contact Form   From: Steve A Zip: 55429   Message Body: Whats up with your web cam? It's had the same picture for a month. There are a lot of us snowmobilers who watch your cam to know if there is any snow left up there and if we should come up sledding or not. Can you check to see if it's working?  Thanks.  
    • Any combo of Dunn/Jones is not something you can build a contender around. Either could eventually become a decent backup; neither looks to be leadership/starter material. I would have no problem with trading Rubio for another PG, as long as it is the right dude. 

      Much like Rubio, Rose just isn't worth the salary he will command. 
    • Anyone who took Brett Hite is a happy camper! Wayyyy too early yet to get too excited or too worried. Bobby Lane stuck an 8+, and his total weight is 17 and change, so he could vault up is he makes a couple of good culls.
