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.

They looked pretty good.....too bad Sacramento isn't going to be good this year but a win is a win!! Kevin Love 12 points 9 rebounds!

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.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
