Add another winner to Kevin McHale's long list of draft busts. McHale has probably been involved in the worst 5 picks in NBA history. He demonstrated his knack in MN and it continues in Houston.

The expectations for Turner's coaching ability are way beyond unreasonable. He is a coach...not a miracle worker. I hope fans do not turn on him after a couple games.

McHale picked Love and Pecovik? Arguably our 2 best players?

but I don’t know that he’s going to get the chance in Minnesota (referring to Ponder).... You will never win with Ponder. Nothing else needs to be said.

knuckle: Do you really want to try to convince anyone that McHale was a good judge of talent? You mention two including Pekovic, who is an average NBA player. McHale drafted 28 players including Brandon Roy and Ray Allen, but immediately traded both. Give him credit for Love and Garnett...that's it. Good guy, good player but a rotten judge of talent.

we now have a great offensive coordinator and a great defensive mind and leader for our defense.in the draft i would love to see us draft secondary and linebacker early.i would like to try to resign jared allen at a fair price dont overpay him.i would like us to find a 330 pound pat williams type to play nose tackle as well.i also want cassell to come back as our starter.
