I think we saw how the 76ers adjusted to Pek and Love -- it got very scrappy in the post and our guys did not have as easy a time as they have had recently. But still they got it done and they got to the line a lot. We will see both of these players continue to grow and continue to improve. It's a good time to be a Wolves fan.

Its funny how Lin, who has started less games than Pek, is already in the rising stars game. I think everyone can read between the lines on that one.

Someone should tell DWill that they aren't doing rounds in this year's slam dunk contest. The first dunk should be a very good dunk, so fans start voting for him right away.

@cwinner76, I would have been with you there a few games ago, but Lin continues to play out of his mind. Yes, playing in NY gets him a lot of extra attention. But when you look at what he has done, coming out of nowhere, it really is incredible. He belongs in the rising stars game.

I'm not saying he doesn't, I just question why Pek hasn't gotten any consideration when he has been performing longer than Lin.

Ohhh Brad Miller, you wild and crazy guy.

Let's not buy into the hype about Lin just yet. Teams are breaking down his play right now. Every player has weaknesses. Time will tell if he can be special over the long-term.
