the wolves drafted 3 PG's flynn, rubio, and lawson

but they ended up trading lawson away

but the funny thing is lawson already looks like he might even be better than flynn

how kahn f-ked up..........!

imagine he drafted curry, jennings, lawson or drafted collison and kept them all?

nah. i see more potential in flynn then lawson.

they should probably bring in rubio next year and see how flynn and rubio due. then they can trade one of them.

First off we didn't draft Lawson, the Nuggets did. The pick was traded as soon as James Johnson was drafted by the Bulls. The rumor was that we were going to package Flynn and Johnson for Tyreke Evans but Johnson didn't make it to our pick so we traded it away.

Second, Lawson and those other PG's aren't forced to run a triangle offense like Flynn is. Flynn has been told by Rambis to sharpen his weaknesses rather than play to his strengths which the other PG's are doing. Doesn't hurt that Lawson gets to learn from one of the best PG's in the NBA as well as play for one of the best offensive teams in the game.
