I have heard a report that Ilgauskas wont be in the lineup tonight, but I didnt really know who his replacement would be, so I just left him in on the gamethread.

Anyone think we can stop Lebron and Co.?

Wally World's coming home. I'd love to see a Miller Wally matchup if it weren't for jersey colors I don't know if I could tell them apart.

It would have been really cool to go tonight to see Lebron. This guy is just a freak, that's the only way I can think of describing him.

I'd be interested to see what Carney can do against LeBron instead of Gomes.

Did anyone else think Ollie channeled his inner Han Solo during the interview? Just the vibe and the way he talked. When he was told "thank you" and he said "YOUR Welcome" it reminded me of the Leah Han carbon freezing scene.

He seems like a genuinely good guy. We need Foye to drive to the hoop like Ollie.

I'd rather see Ollie play over Bassy. I am liking Ollie more and more. Foye seems a little more confused since Ollie has been getting more minutes and he is playing off the ball more.

I can't help but agree with you, Ollie is really doing well. It's like he knows minutes are available and wants to step up to be 'that guy.' I am happy to see it but I wish it would have been Foye.

I don't see Ollie playing well enough to keep Foye from getting serious minutes.

down 7 after three

not impossible.

someone needs to get hot though.

Damn it why can't our shooters get looks when the shot clocking isn't expiring when there shot is in the air.

Mauersota

Honestly why has Carney not even set foot on the court yet and LeBron has 25 points?

Mauersota
12-17-2008, 10:56 PM
HOLY crap that was a hell of a pass by LeBron for those that didn't see. No look from the 3 point line all the way down right under the basket.

I loved when our fans had a standing ovation for Lebron!
The Wolves are going to be the best team in the NBA in a couple years. We just gotta hang in there...

That was hilarious Wally and LeBron got more applause then any of our players ever get. Then again when there are only 24 people there...

I cant understand why we can hang around for 3 quarters? It seems like every game theres always that one quarter where we score 10 points.

I also cant understand how jwin can say we are doomed one day then 10 seconds later say we will be the best team in the NBA.

The reason we stay close through 3 quarters is because teams will play up/down to the other team's level a lot of times, and we usually will up our game if we play like the Cavs or any other good team, yet at the same time, they have a tendency to play down to our level. By the time crunch time rolls around though (4th quarter or mid-3rd), that's when they start to pick up the slack and start to really kill us like they should have done in the beginning.
