Here they are out to eat.... not nearly as funny as kloves.
Bayno on second-year forward Derrick Williams, who is expected to open camp almost exclusively at the 3: "He still has a lot to prove and I tell him that. He's got a lot of baby fat. He needs to stay focused on his diet and being lean, keeping the weight down. ... It will take time with him. He's such a good kid, he really is. He's a sweetheart. But he can't be that kid on the court. He needs to be a junkyard dog. We'll be patient with him."
Not really a ringing endorsement...
All sorts of training camp updates from Wolfson...I will highlight some
-If the Wolves didnt sign Amundson, plan B was Yi, plan C was Sean Williams
-Amundson had the same contract offer from the Knicks
-Still a chance the Wolves bring in Whiteside with a non-guarenteed contract (awesome), they have been making calls to check around on his background (what about his background?!)
-Pekovic is noticeably thinner (duh), the coaches convinced him to get in the best shape of his life, as he will be playing more games and minutes than he ever has.
2k player ratings for wolves have been released:
89 - Kevin Love
80 - Brandon Roy
79 - Ricky Rubio
76 - Nikola Pekovic
74 - Andre Kirilenko
72 - Luke Ridnour
70 - Chase Budinger
69 - Derrick Williams
68 - JJ Barea
65 - Malcolm Lee
60 - Greg Stiemsma
59 - Dante Cunningham
for whatever reason no schved or amundson (or conroy).
video games aside, where do you guys rank our players after this offseason?
derrick williams 69.. Hahaha
I also remember Minnesota from those times. Didn't know much about players or game overall, but I knew Garnett's team was tough as hell.
regarding the 2K ratings, its just a video game, but it still shows the NYK bias...Carmelo Anthony a 92 when Love is an 89....Iman Shumpert an 80, when Rubio is a 79.
Something cool about 2K though, is that it is more about the skill set. I imagine Rubio is only a 79 due to his shooting, and athleticism ratings. Meaning, if you use him right, he will still have high assist numbers, and steals...but will only shoot around 40% from the field.
PSD Grammar Lesson #1:
a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
b) there - means "over there" as in location
c) they're - short for "they are"

video games have come a long way since Double Dribble...
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
