Do you guys think he will just rip them apart for trading him away?

Will McHale witness the stupidest decision ever to trade Mayo for Love?

Mayo is going to probably destroy the Wolves I see him going for 40 points and just lighting us up. Seriously that was the stupidest trade ever to give away OJ Mayo (a star in the making) for fat butt Kevin Love who plays off the bench behind Al Jefferson.

Well there are those who think the Mayo for Love trade will actually pan out for the Wolves.

It will be interesting to see how Mayo performs Monday. If he goes for 40 points, many will say it was a horrible trade.

Why do you say that? I think Love is awesome he has the full court outlet pass and everything.

What can Mayo do? Score 20ppg and guard good players?

McHale is a dumbass, drafting two future superstars (Roy, Mayo) and trading them away for scrubs

yeah, damn.

imagine if the Wolves still had both, they'd be Al Jefferson+Brandon Roy+OJ Mayo.

I'm pretty sure if the Wolves had Brandon Roy, Kevin Garnett rather than Al Jefferson would be playing next to him.

well yeah, I guess they wouldn't have landed such a high pick on the 2008 draft either.

McHale has some sort of "strength in numbers" strategy for these trades. He traded Roy and Mayo for a lot of players, none of them making huge impacts

People always call it the "Mayo - Love trade". That would have been an awful trade.

But it was the "Mayo + bad contracts - Miller/Love Trade". On paper it doesn't sound all that bad.

In reality however, it sucks, because Miller has been infected with the Wolves' loser virus and has been either injured or playing like crap.

jwin2005
12-28-2008, 01:38 PM
Miller is being thrown into the trade discussion and will be traded for the right price.

The Wolves basically traded OJ Mayo for Love and salary cap space.

That is why it is such a horrible trade.

If ur not going to include Miller then u have to include what Miller gets traded for.

EXCATLY!!!!! I really dont remember anybody saying this was a good trade for Memphis. All of the ESPN "EXPERTS" said OJ would flop and be a bad fg% shooter. And he is shooting 46% and 41% from 3 point land. While the savor from UCLA is shooting 39%. Seriously 39% from your bigman are you kidding me?

I was ripped when i said Kevin Love was going to have trouble getting his shot off and guarding his position. Someone even told me that the Wolves would be contending for a playoff spot because of Love.

well lets just say that MN is going to be waiting for the 2009 draft to make up for its mistakes... we are getting 4 first round draft picks (ours, Miami's, Utah's, and Boston's)

Lets root on Mayo tonight to kill the Wolves!

Too Early right now. While I think OJ Mayo will be a complete beast Kevin Love is having himself a good season

Kevin Love: 22 MPG
7.5 PPG
7.8 RPG
1.1 APG
.6 BPG
38.7 FG % - Geww..

Mayo has been great but I really expect Kevin Love to become atleast a 15/10 Player.

The problem is that they have Al Jefferson who is really a PF and Love is a PF.

Yeah wolves fan should be really excited to have the 23,26 and the 30th pick in the draft:clap: lol


And yeah we all know Minny with Mchale has a great draft record. Even if you do draft Blake you guys would probably trade him for Tyler Hansbrough and some magic beans. lol

I mean seriously how does McHale still have a job?

this trade needs to be judged in a couple of years. If Love got 38 mpg, he would be challengind Dwight for the rebounding title right now. He will be a player, he just has to learn to finish or get to the line. Mayo is a scorer, and will always be just that. A damn good one at that however. And yes, if they kept Roy, KG would still be there, and Mayo or Love would never have been anywhere near Minny. The Roy-Foye trade is just as stupid as the Ray Allen-Marbury trade. The Wolves should make it an internal law that they will NOT trade on draft day after picking a player.

Ok can I ask you a question. Do you think Love will be anything more than a good role player?

I do. And this is non biased, if that is possible. I think Love will challenge for the rebounding title in his prime, and put up 16 ppg. So yes, I think Love will be a very good player. Mayo will light it up in the boxscores, but what does he do besides score? I will cut the dude a break, he is 21, but he better develop something other than hitting jumpers, or he is simply a glorified Ben Gordon

and Love finished with 17-7, with the win, so everyone knows. Love leads the NBA in offensive rebounds per 48 as well, if anyone cares.

You didnt answer my question. I asked whether he would be more than a good role player. Which is what he is. David lee is a great rebounder. But that doesnt make him a great player. He is still a role player. I think David Lee is Love's max out. You dont draft somebody top 5 to be a good or role player. You draft somebody that high to be your star. And OJ is clearly going to be that.

OJ is more than a scorer he is a defender and an underrated playmaker. Although his assist numbers dont tell the story. And i think that has to do more with the coaching than anything. And he is a leader and hard worker. And he is clutch. if you would have seen him against San Antonio you have seen how clutch he was. He should have won that game but the ref stole it from us. And did you see that game last nite? He was 9 for 12 going into overtime and he doesnt even touch the ball until 2 mins to go? That is not his fault that was coaching.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pvHjn5eg4E

And another thing he is by the way still a rookie so that means he is only going to get better. He is already better than Ben Gordon imo. And gordon is what a 4th year guy? I believe that is saying something.

And when does Ben Gordon care about defense. Ben Gordon is nothing more than a shooter.

At this point of Mayo's career, you will not be able to convince me that he will ever be more than a scorer. And Foye went around him like he wasn't even there. He doesn't rebound, he is an average defender at best. He will be a very good scorer in the NBA, with many years of 20+ ppg, but I just don't see anything else. I think Gordon is better right now. In fact, they are so similar, that I have called Mayo a Gordon clone for a long time. I don't know what Love will turn into, and I don't know what Mayo will turn into, but my opinions are mine, and I am not changing them until I see something that makes me. I think Love outplayed him last night, but, they never guard each other, and play different positions, so that is coming from the effect each had on the game overall.

Minnesota doesn't have a better coach than a high school program. they won because 2 rookies have no business guarding Al jefferson. I was surprised Mayo didn't get more involved, but Minny doubled him in OT and late in the game. That was the first game all year that Love actually had a play run for him. If the guy could get 35 mpg, which I have no idea why he doesn't (There is that coach I was talking about), he is a double double machine. And you see he is already one of the best passing big men out there.

I mean seriously how does McHale still have a job?
He got relieved from GM duties, and got demoted to coaching, so he did get fired in a sense, but not technically since he's still got a job.

I never thought McHale was a bad coach just a terrible GM. And his record back that up.

And that was more of a shot at our own coach then anything else. Mayo was 9 for 12 going into overtime. Rudy was 4 for 13 going into overtime. But yet the coach calls 4 straight ISO's for Rudy and he promptly misses them all. And Mayo doesnt touch the ball until 2 mins to go when the game was basically over. That is coaching or lack there of.

Love got the win (which means nothing). Mayo is still the superior player who will be a star. Seriously Minnesota needed a inside out combination with a superior front court player (they do in Al Jefferson) and a superior back court player (they traded him away). OJ Mayo would have been the perfect compliment to Jefferson.

It is one of the worst trades made in the last couple years (besides Gasol to L.A.)
