I thought it was a fun game to watch last night. It is goin to be a tough road out. Our inside game is goin to struggle and our perimeter shooting will not be there very night.

Fun to see Telfair have a good game minus some turnovers. Still waiting for Mac to set Love up on the low block. Bootsy collins should hit the road, the dude is a sloth.

Hope the keep there game face on and don't give up on the season.

Looks like T-pups just got a deal struck with the Kings to send them Mccants and Booth for Shelden Williams and PG Brown. Sounds good to me. We got rid of some dead weight.

You're right it was a fun game to watch, but they're not going to hit 14 threes every night. What's with Mike Miller? The guy was brought in because of his perimeter shooting and he's afraid to shoot. He played 37 minutes last night and took 4 shots.

Kevin Love is developing nicely and is way more confident than a couple months ago. He's going to have to be very crafty around the hoop to keep his shot from getting blocked.

As long as they don't pack it in and they play hard every night, I'll keep watching.

Not sure about that trade. How long does Williams have left on his contract? I think McCants' contract is expiring.

I haven't heard of Williams or Brown, are they any good? I'm glad to see McCants gone though, could never stand him. Reminded me of Starberry's attitude but without the abbility.

Well Sheldon Williams was a higher draft pick out of Duke in 06....I think the 6th pick to the Hawks.....he might be a good addition but it sounds that he might be the same as Mccants but maybe this will spark him to play good....never really heard of Brown but he is a young PG and is scheduled to make 700,000 only next year so it is not a bad deal if he amounts to anything...now if they only can figure out a way to get Hinrich from the Bulls......

How many good ones is the real question. Foye is never going to be a true point guard and I don't want them to start Telfair long term.

Sheldon Williams has the same body as Kevin Love, he's about 6'9"/250 lbs. They really don't need another guy in that Craig Smith or Love mold long term, but they're really hurting for size right now. They started Love at center last night along with Gomes and Miller at the forward spots. Talk about a small lineup...

they have 3 point guards now.....Telfair, Ollie, and Brown.....Foye is a shooting guard playing point cause they didn't have a back-up point when ollie went down

We were dang small, Sheldon won some highly touted defensive awards in college. Hopefully he matches up well in the Pf spot and can get us some blocked shots and some boards.

Well, I'm for anything that got McCan't out of here. Maybe they can stir up a little with a mix up of new guys.

    • 4"-6" sucker minnows are turning walleyes on a lot of lakes right now.  Seems to be an underutilized method lately.  
    • It would probably be more accurate for you to say you simply choose not to believe it will be a problem.   What happens to your theory if interest rates rise to 5%?  
    • All depends on the district and how many years you have been a teacher.  Although MN is looking for teacher all over.. Our current district decided on keeping befits really high and seeing an increase in pay. Where my mother in-law (down in the cities) they have great benefits but there wages haven't not increased as significantly..    Although my wife is looking to open a daycare up so we knows if she will be teaching after all? 
    • You'll be fine with the door in the V.  I heard at one point that the Lake of the Woods edition was Ice Castle's most popular layout.  I know I see tons of them, but you will have to take some precautions.  I use a Towtector on my truck, which keeps the majority of the slush down.  A piece of tape or a tennis ball over the door knob is also done frequently.  Other than that, you'll have icing and freezing of your door, regardless of where you put it.  Just the nature of the doors we use.       
    • That does happen a lot and it sucks having to play those games.  I took my contract job knowing I was going to keep looking for full time work so it was really just a stop gap to get pay checks coming in and also to gain some experience in a new area and with a different company.  I think i was there less than 2 months total including the 2 week notice I gave after accepting my full time job.  Often times its easier getting a job when you're already working somewhere as you are viewed as more employable.  If you're not working then employers start to wonder why. That where a short term contract job can pay off.
    • I'm lucky enough to have the choice when I start my day, usually head in before traffic gets bad(6:30), but today I woke up and was like..........I'll wait until after rush hour(let that carp melt). We have a guy that starts at 4:30 am, and others that roll in at 10:00 am.   35W-494-Hwy100 on the way in, but I avoid 494 like the plague in the afternoon and cut through Bloomington. Adds a few minutes time that way, but it's always the same amount of time,  I hate hate hate the accordion traffic of 494. Jump on 35W right before the MN river and I have my own lane, no merging needed.   Curious to see how shutting down Hwy 169 is gonna affect things. Might roll in even earlier if need be.   Started working from home on Friday's two weeks ago, it's nice but I don't know if I would ever enjoy working from home full time. Stir crazy and lack of interaction with other folks.   Living on the south side of the metro stinks for taking trips up north. But we live with fewer meth mullets around.   We picked where we wanted to live first and then adjusted how far we were willing to travel for a job.        
    • Ya a saw that, sounds like they have played an easy schedule but you still have to pretty good to have that kind of record.
    • One could also say Koivu has been reborn, that line has been on a tear lately. I think all of them are at or near a point per game for the last 22 games. Not to mention they are doing that while usually getting the job of shutting down the other teams top line. Crazyness!
    • most people are pretty good in the shanty towns that I frequent.  the thing that pisses me off is the guys that come out with there 50 grand fish house and there 5 dollar generator.  instead of leaving it in the back of the truck where it wont bother anyone they drag it 50ft front there house set it next to me and let it buck very annoying.
    • Maybe you can help me understand something.  He mentions his wife is a teacher.  From what I have been told and through reading doc's through the MN Dept of Education, teachers generally get paid the same.  I understand there is a little "bump" for working in the cities, but doesn't the State Teachers Union dictate what teachers make to some extent?  My daughter wants to get into teaching and I was just curious.  I highly doubt a English teacher in Shakopee makes $15,000 more than a teacher in Detroit Lakes when comparing degrees and experience.  Hopefully MJ can offer some insight as well. Thanks!
