    Default Minnesota's tank job

    It's one of the purest tank jobs I've seen since the Spurs tanked for Duncan. The only thing missing is Dominique Wilkins. Where's Love actually? Some made up injury? I have to hand it to the Wolves. 8 straight losses down the stretch when it matters.

    It's blatantly blatant.

    4-16 since Rubio went down.

    They have nothing to tank for ... their pick is committed to New Orleans I believe.

    Exclamation Re: Minnesota's tank job

    I won't call what they are doing a tank job, they were mediocure with Rubio, they suck without him. I am beginning to think the wolves have really shot themselves in the foot with this long-term rebuild, they're going to be decent, but kind of stuck in pergatory. Yes theyve got a star In k-love and perhaps a pretty decent and marketable prospect in Rubio- but will they ever contend with that roster? I'm thinking it's a no.

    They are kinda like the blazers, except the wolves are a year or two behind the blazers in the rebuilding process, and the blazers now have some cap room to fill either through free agency or through lopsided trades. I don't fear the wolves now, and I'm definitely not going to fear them next year once the substantial upgrades the blazers can make this offseason come to fruition

    Additionally, that spurs team was mostly garbage sans Robinson- he was the entirety of that team the previous year, compare that Robinson to shaq from the magic years- both could nearly or reach the finals with a single dominant center.

    I still think Portland is being more blatant with the tanking, which will be especially easy without Aldridge out now, and I expect batum to be shut down shortly. Aldridge wouldn't be shut down if the blazers were still contending. Additionally, Babbitt still wouldnt be seeing the light of day.

    Between Pekovic, Rubio, Love and Williams I think the Wolves will be fine ... maybe not "contenders" but that group is a helluva lot more compelling than what the Blazers currently have to count on.

    Of course where the Blazers stand at the end of July has some potential, but potential can cut both ways.

    I was shocked Batum played last night. That's no way to tank. He should be resting his knee. I hope he keeps his sore knee away from the Blazers' staff.

    I've never seen a supposed "Blazer fan" dog on the team's All-Star like you do if Love is mentioned. It's like if somebody says anything bad about Stat Beast or the TPups, you automatically have to slam LMA.

    What's wrong with hating on the TPups? Are we supposed to cheer for them? Seems that way.

    I know the tpunks gave up their first rounder, but I thought it was protected. Basically if they get 6th or higher, they get to keep the pick? I maybe wrong though.

    Nah, I've always thought of Aldridge as soft. I wish we had Love, his game is better.
