Talk about classy, I have a whole new respect for George Karl. I did not know he wore Rubio's jersey after the injury. Pretty cool!

We need the big man back. Who are we going to rely on to be the big presence in the middle, Darko? Ha...Tolliver...Nah. Out of all of them, I think Anthony Randolph is the guy.

I am eager for Pek to come back and play!! But not if it would mean further damage to his ankle. We seem to have done OK with K-Love as the "center" against Denver, and I have every faith that Coach Adelman will find a way to keep putting our Wolves in a good position; he has been absolutely brilliant in his flexible approaches to match-ups. Come back in good health next fall, guys! And I hope we never have to have such a physically punishing season again. It's been brutal. It's not right to put athletes through that.

Mr Pekovic, you are presently my favorite sports figure. It is so cool to see you manning the paint so well after all these years of watching the Wolves make do with very little at the 5. But I want to watch you play for a very long time, so I sincerely hope you will get the surgery now and come back stronger than ever. GL HFA :) Go Wolves! :)
