Did You Watch?

Recommended Posts

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.

WE won't realy know what we have until a couple years down the road!

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!

    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!¬† But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.¬† I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they¬†could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.¬† Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.¬† ¬† I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.¬† I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.¬† It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.¬† Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!¬† No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!¬† That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering. ¬† Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.¬† I sat there for a few¬†minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!¬† I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!¬† ¬† What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the¬†second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that¬†runs through my mind but the northern as¬†cool¬†as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know¬†how massive it was, makes it¬†"easier" to¬†deal with.¬†
    • Sorry for the delayed response.¬† ¬† Checked in at the Lac Seul Resort on Wednesday, June 6, and checked out on Monday, June 11. Anticipating our usual needs, I preordered 200 dozen minnows and a pound of leeches from KA Sports & Tackle in Dryden for 10 guys to fish for 4-1/2 days.¬† ¬† This was the first time in 20 years that we actually had bait left over at the end. I gave away about 30 dozen minnows to a neighboring cabin because they didn't have any.¬† ¬† We found the morning bite to be slow for some reason but the evening bite was better. Most activity was found in moving water on the English River. On Friday evening another guy and myself went to Pelican Rapids and from 6:00pm till about 9:30pm we figured we boated over 200 walleyes and a few northnerns. Unfortunately, they were all between 15" - 17" in length and we were looking for the 17" - 18" size for the freezer. That's always our goal for fish we intend to take home.¬† ¬† The following night we went back and although the fish weren't biting quite as fast they were larger. Over the same time frame we figured we only boated about 100 walleyes but the size ranged more in the 17" - 22" size.¬† ¬† Overall we had a few walleyes caught in the 25" - 28" range with the largest of the week at 28.25". Northern pike were active with many caught in the 31" - 34" range. Didn't boat any in the 40" range as we usually do but those lower 30-inchers sure put up a fight.¬† ¬† Also found a few nice smallies and whitefish as usual.¬† ¬† Most fish were found in the 10' - 14' depth range, which was unusual compared to previous years when we caught them in shallow water along the shorelines.¬† ¬† Great weather with steady winds out of the southerly directions, which is what we always hope for but never get and nobody got hurt. Another successful year for us.
    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it.¬†
    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives? ¬†
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it¬†took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.¬† Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered¬†it as a¬†home made trailer.¬† At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.¬†¬†
