And the T-wolves 1st round pick is.....Victor Oladipo???

Ezekial, that was going to be my comment exactly! This guy would be awesome as a Wolf, a 2 guard that can defend, bring energy, and works his tail off. I'd even be willing to give up our pick (not likely to get him) and Derrick Williams to pull of the trade.

if he fell into our lap, Kahn would most likely trade down in the draft in a prearranged deal for (Kosta Koufous & raja Bell) to secure other picks or for cash as has been done in other drafts. We're on the verge of the playoffs & we need established players, not rookies. Ha ha. It would be great to win the lottery or be in a position to draft him when he's eligible. We need a stroke of luck one of these years.

You all see what a practice facility can do for a program?! Look at Indiana. They now have a new practice facility and it must have helped them propel to #1. Coach Tubby is right, we need a practice facility. :) Just kidding of course.

I think even if Tubby had a practice facility it wouldn't do a heckuva lot for this club. I knew Oladipo was going to be special after watching him his freshman year. He's just got a knack for the game. Can't knock this kid, he's a special player. We will wait to see how his game translates to NBA ball though. I'm not sure he will quite as dominant on the next stage, but he could prove me wrong.

Don't be so sure Olapido will come out unless IU wins the NCAA this year. They lose only Watford and Hulls of any consequence, and have a top recruiting class. Hoqwever, when he does come out, whoever drafts him is going to get a superstar in the making. BTW, in HS Olapido played for DeMatha, MD vs. Hopkins in the 2008 Timberwolves Shootout - Hopkins won 73-66. Besides Oladipo, DeMatha had Quinn Cook (Duke), Mikael Hopkins (Georgetown), Josh Shelby (drafted by Memphis Grizzlies), Kelby Johnson (Maryland), Jeran Grant (Notre Dame). Hopkins had Marcus Williams (football at NDSU), Marvin Singleton (Northern Iowa), Trent Lockett (Marquette), Ray Cowles (Santa Clara), Mike Broghammer (Notre Dame), Joe Coleman, Siyani Chambers (Harvard), DJ Peterson (LaSalle). Impressive!
