I didnt like him playing so high in the playoffs, but when he is around the basketball he the type of player that demands attention on both ends of the court from the other team. Josh Smith wont come here, but he is the type of player we need.

Good. As much as I would like the number 2 pick McGee should be off limits unless of course an absurd trade offer comes along.
Quote:
So the Wolves, according to sources, continue to explore other trade options with the No. 2 selection, such as a proposal to Washington that the Wizards have steadfastly declined, in which Minnesota has tried to acquire JaVale McGee and the No. 6 pick for the No. 2 pick.

Our second pick in the first I would easily stand behind Chris Singleton outta FSU, defensive standout.
Singleton is a beast... I think he'll be gone earlier than our second pick, however.

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

T-wolves are now telling teams they're taking Kanter... may be a smoke screen to drum up their asking price with us. Kanter is a better fit for them, however... they don't need a PG and are pretty anchored at the forward slots.

They already had trouble with one D. Williams. Why would they want another one?

Sources: Timberwolves to fire Rambis - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

Crazy timing. Was it last year when Paul Allen fired the Blazers GM on the eve of the draft?

Yup... in Portland's case, it was friction with ownership over draft philosophy. Portland's lost two very capable GMs.

Yup. It's funny, in NFL circles Paul Allen is known as a very hands-off, great to work for owner. But in NBA circles he's one of the least liked. Considered impulsive, micromanaging, gets too involved in personnel decisions.

That's so weird... why do you think it is? Do you think he knows more hoops than pigskin?

Latest rumors have Utah taking Kanter at 3... not sure if they like Brandon Knight's style of play (although personally, I like him more than Irving). Then they can take their hometown boy at 12.

Looking more and more like Vesely to DC (boo).

I'm thinking Minny's just messing with Washington. Reports are Williams was pretty ridiculous in individual workouts and they're willing to take the talent over need (even with teams not interested in Beasley).

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

Screw coming to America. If thats the atmosphere in Europe I think I would rather play in Europe. Most of the NBA is empty arenas. By the by, this is a great break down.


I can see why they like him. A 6'11 guy that moves like a 6'7 6'8 guy and plays with energy is an intriguing combination. No team would be able to go small against the Wiz with him and McGee on the floor. Also looks like he has the potential to develop a shot. At the very least he's going to run the floor with Wall on the fast break.

Well I think he has a bit more of a passion for hoops than pigskin, and studies the game more. Like any owner, he has made decisions that override his staff. But he's always been pretty methodical and involves several people (including people outside the organization allegedly), but I guess it's only recently that he's taken on more of an impulsive, my way or the high way type of approach. Maybe he feels the window is closing on the Blazers?

Draft is going to get pretty interesting after Minnesota at 2. Could see a lot of trades.
