Two wins in the past 12 and the Strib is running a feel good story about the Wolves? Yes, I just love JJ and Shaved on the floor together...that chemistry has really been magical for the Wolves.

I'd like to keep both Johnson and Gelabale. We'd have to cut someone in order to keep both. I'm not sure why Roy is still on the roster. Are they really expecting anything out of him? We can count on Johnson and Gelabale to be productive when they get minutes. Johnson is shooting 73%.

manolive, I think they're hoping to use the 5 million on Roy's contract as a trading chip. It's a team option for next year. so essentially a expiring contract. I would love to see them somehow package Roy's Contract and JJ Barea for one solid 2

we need to keep losing to improve our draft position.this team needs a big time shooting guard.there hope was that brandon roy would be that guy.hes done.if we dont draft a 2 guard with our lottery pick than package a trade and get one.shved is a role player a nice backup up who needs to hit the weights and fill out.i would have no problem trading love or derrick williams for fair value,i absolutely luv dante cunningham as a backup power forward but we need 3 power forwards.

I think we should remain calm and realistic. The Wolves just beat a very bad Hornets team. Let's see if they can defeat a better team Portland tonight.With Rubio playing better means this entire will get better.Rubio is the leader and cog in the wheel.Yes Adelman has his rotation which he loves if the players can stay healthy.I would love to see Rubio and Shved together on the floor more so to me getting a good SG to back up Shved with Ridnour backing up Rubio makes more sense to me.Sending Barea and another player maybe Williams to a playoff contending team to get that player is something I would like to see. Of course when Love and Budinger return in March this current rotation is going to get messed up.

Be calm and realistic ? No way. I'm going to be as reactionary as the clowns who rip on us after every loss: The Wolves beating the Hornets at home by about 20+ the entire game proves we are the bees knees and the whole team rules ! That game is obvious proof to anybody that we're going to win the title.

@muddyoasis....ROFL. Yeah, I can hardly wait to see how we match up against Miami in the finals. Let's hope for competitive. This is one of those "what could have been" years. I would like to think even the crazies out there believed we were a playoff team if we stayed healthy. Even without Roy.

manoliveFeb. 4, 13 4:37 PM

frnorth, good point. We do need help at the 2. We're too small, with Roy and Lee out for the year. Maybe Gelabale can move there.

There's no reason for this team to go dumpster diving. Taylor is one of the richest guys in the U.S. around 2 billion. Done with the Wolves!
