    Hard to complain about Lazar being our 12th man, but I don't understand the move with the other options that are out there right now. The other guys we were rumored to be interested in, at least had one part of their game to be excited about. Lazar has nothing. He as known as an all around player, but in his case, being called an all around player is a way of saying he doesnt really do anything well, instead of saying he does many things well.

    the Wolves' former first-round draft pick has worked recently with two Los Angeles mediums who he says have guided him on a spiritual quest that dates to his childhood.
    -StarTribune

    amazing! Lazar has gone on one of those life quests that make athletes better...like Ricky Williams, or Sharif-Abdur Rahim, or Dmitrius Underwood.

    Hayward has a friend whom he claims has talked through such a medium to a brother who has been dead for six years.
    I am starting to think we have signed Metta World Peace

    I was on a spiritual quest too. Some spirits told me that Minnesota needs to waive this idiot and sign Gelabale. Or whoever else.

    After reading some news on him, I think we're got ourselves the 6th man in the game from the movie. LOL

    Rubio won't travel with the team for this road trip:

    I fully support this.

    MWP has been great this year when given the playing time, Lazar has nothing on him..

    Rubio's body is trying to make up for its injury by putting stress on other parts. This is why Chicago's staff is horrid, Phoenix's amazing. Hopefully we have trainers who understand how to deal with the human body attempting to control itself.

    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.

    I doubt this is a "trainers" issue - rather it is a Ricky issue. I had total knee reconstruction and "trusting" it isn't physical it is mental. You can say I am putting it out of my mind but..... It will take time and as he plays and stops "thinking" about it he will get better. Everyone is different - look at AP who is a beast and did the unthinkable. Ricky was never a "physical" speciman so it may take him a bit longer. He will be fine in time.

    I mean as far as going forward, long term. Trainers are a very important part of recognizing if Ricky is overcompensating for his knee by overusing another body part.

    Hayward was traded December 13th of last year meaning he never got coached by Adelman and so his knowledge is limited to the organization and not the system RA uses.

    I hope that his signing isn't a matter of pride on Kahn's part seeing as he drafted Lazar and we all have some measure of ego. Right now, I feel like Lazar Hayward is Wes Johnson lite...

    the only reason i can see for signing lazar is that he fits.

    he can give AK some rest at small forward, and can then also fill the void at shooting.

    i would have much preferred to have signed james anderson, who has just signed with houston. i think he could be a nice 8/9th man if given the chance.

    where as i think we all know hayward's not on this roster at full health.
