On the eve of the trade deadline, let's just say none of the Big Three Bubble Boys did anything to help themselves.

Maybe you want to keep Pekovic in a Wolves uniform next year...he is a "monster" in the paint...what a loss he would be. If there is going to be a future for this team, you've got to have his presence in the middle.

Remember that Love and Pek play off each other extremely well. Their spacing and passing abilities should not be understated.

I agree with Williams' self-assessment. At times he makes the game too hard. I still think he can develop his game enough to play the three as well as back up Love at the four. Rubio needs to drop the flash and go for substance. Too many turnovers and bad passes. Opportunities for flashy or spectacular passes come of their own accord in the natural flow of the game; they can't be forced. This is the NBA after all, where the passing lanes close quickly and no-look passes are not as effective as in times past. Plus, Pek has bad hands. Overall, a pretty ugly game, and the NBA should NOT be considering expansion.

I read an interesting article about Darko. At a young age, he lived through the bombings that took place in Yugoslavia and has been helping his impoverished parents by playing basketball since he was thirteen. I will never say anything bad about him again. sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ball-dont-lie/darko-milicic

This team is weak in many areas, shooting, free throws, defense, etc. but, tonight they played like they meant it, we want to win and win big. Nice job wolves! Let's keep winning. Maybe playoffs?

One Wolves' fourth-quarter field goal one, how pathetic is that (1-for-12)And still Adelman lets sit on the bench a guy who might just help. Sits because whey? that forth quarter stat says what this team is, they have till 2pm to better themselves.

Hey Jerry .there wasn't much "flexing" going on in the fourth quarter, good thing the game didn't last another two minutes.

I am glad that they won this game! However, I sure wouldn't be talking about how much a player is going make next season. The Wolves need to win before anything else.

T-Wolves in a really lame name. Minneapolis should've never let the Lakers name go.
