I'm still not intimated by any team in the East. However if Kyrie stays healthy Cleveland has one fine squad. Quite the "sacrifice" NBA's new hero Lebron made by going back there and joining 2 young stars.

If Love and Kyrie stay healthy, that's going to be a beautiful offense. The defense will be questionable, sure, but they're the favorite in the East now since it seems Rose's knee will forever act up or be injured.

The Wolves can roll out...

 

PG - Rubio

SG - Lavine

SF - Wiggins

PF - Thad Young

C - Pekovic 

 

 

Actually some nice potential there to build on. Still not a playoff team in the West IMO, but all sides came away winners from this it seems.

I still cannot get over how miserable LaVine acted when his name was called. Maybe he'll grow on me, and maybe he'll be happier to be playing alongside Wiggins, but no matter what BS excuse he comes up with about "being overwhelmed" and how he wasn't "unhappy about going there" I'm not buying it. I like this team but right now I can't cheer for LaVine.

Yeah he may be happier now that they have Wiggins...but that look was one from a dude PISSED he was going to Minny, and who couldn't wait until his contract was up.

I don't get it honestly. If you enter the draft, especially as an early entry, you better be cool to go ANYWHERE. and if not, at least know how to act like you're cool with it when they call your name on a national broadcast.

Cleveland will be iffy on D but explosive on offense.

So basically Minnesota got two potentially good players and a pick for one star player. 3 for 1 which could be a steal for the T'wolves.

Wiggins may take time to develop but should be at least starter material.

I know Bennet had a horrible rookie season but he lost over 20 pounds and has looked great in the summer league. I predict he will improve greatly this year.

I think Wiggins will be a bust especially in Minnesota.
