He will add much needed shot blocking/altering around the rim. Looking like a very good draft night move so far.....

Haven't seen the guy play, but from what I understand he has length and strength. If he does pan out, that makes the amount of money committed to Pek even crazier. I like Pek but his defense and durability are lacking- not a guy you give a max contract.

It's Minnesota sports. I will wait and see. Believe it's the "luck of the Norwegians". We never seem to achieve greatness. Now some mayoral candidate wants to dump the stadium. I now live in California and are not up on the local politics. Just build it in Minneapolis, and they will come. We truly will be an "All American City".
