AK is exactly what the Wolves needed.

Actually, we didn't lead from start to finish. We were tied at 3-3. LOL.

I used to watch AK47 when he was with Utah. His length, his hustle and his team attitude makes him a very valuable asset. The younger players should pattern their play after him. Andre says that defense is all about desire. I just hope Adelman doesn't burn him out. The other players need to step up.

You know, so far AK has been the most valuable player for the Wolves. We knew what the rest of the Wolves could do, but AK has just stepped in and has fully done more than asked for. Good for him and he is fun to watch.

Kirilenko has been an awesome addition, very glad to have him. He is a lot of fun to watch, Shved too.

I agree...Rubio puts fans in the seats but AK is definitly the most valuable team player. If the Wolves can add a legit shooting guard (maybe it will turn out to be Shevd) they will be able to go fairly deep in the playoffs. Okla City...nobody can shut down Durant and Westbrook. To slow them down you need a thug to flatten Westbrook when he drives to the basket not just watch him. The Wolves need to get one. Guarantee that will slow Westbrook down.
