    Default Raptors vs Timberwolves: Which ROSTER Is Better?

    Timberwolves

    PG - Rubio
    SG - Wes Johnson
    SF - Webster
    PF - Love
    C - Pecovic

    06 - Johnny Flynn
    07 - Brewer
    08 - Lazar Hayward
    09 - Beasley
    10 - Milicic

    11 - Tolliver
    12 - Luke Ridnour


    Raps

    PG - Jack
    SG - Derozan
    SF - Kleiza
    PF - Amir Johnson
    C - Bargnani

    06 - Jose
    07 - Barbosa
    08 - Wright
    09 - Davis
    10 - Anderson

    11 - Evans
    12 - Banks

    Rubio we all know about.
    W. Johnson projected top 5 pick.
    Webster is probably the best shooter out of both teams
    Love is one of the best rebounders in the league
    Pecovic we all saw dominate Bargs like bargs was a little girl.

    Wolves have a lot more talent, unfortunately they seem like this generations GS Warriors (although the Warriors might still be this generations Warriors)

    Actually Bargs dropped 34 on him today so i wouldn't get too excited there Vinny. Its amazing how people will ignore the how well he`s played because its euro competition, yet are so quick to throw it in his face if he has one bad game.

    Actually if you watch the video, Bargs was guarding him on two plays. The player who was guarding him was a number 15.

    Since when did Rubio sign with the T-Wolves?

    The T-wolves with that hypothetical lineup would be pretty stacked, I think Darko might start at C, but Flynn is out for long time and Rubio might not ever play for them. If Wes Johnson is who he people think he is, the T-wolves could be a power in 2 years if they can convince Love to stay. The funny thing is that the T-wolves will be awful again this year and might win the lottery, draft Harrison Barnes, bring Rubio over and have a the best young core in the league.

    They have a better roster definitely. Sadly, they could have been better if the kept Al Jefferson. But they got Kosta Koufos who is seriously underrated. And to those who don't know him, yes he is greek, but played college in Utah. Was one of the most promising young centers. And still has talent, you don't just lose it. He could easily average 10 rebounds and 2 blocks. Same goes for Darko, he can play, just he's never been given an opportunity.

    I am sorry but Wolve's squad is build with players who are either losers, underachievers or unknowns and I just don't see them having a better record then the Raptors.

    The Raps are built on underachievers and unkowns. Amir Johnson, Sonny Weems, Julian Wright, last years version Leandro Barbosa, Rasho Nesterovic at one time, Jose Calderon at one time. Shall I go on?

    owning somebody's rights and being on the roster are COMPLETELY different things

    the roster is the roll call of players available to play

    if you're not under contract, you're not available.

    for example, Delfino was not on our roster the year he was in Russia.

    I'd much rather have the Raps roster (although Wesley could be good) - The difference will be 5 games either way of 30 wins this year for both teams... hopefully we do better than them but turn around in the lottery and get a higher pick than them lol...

    P.S. Kevin Love is never going to be rotation player on a contender - he's like Kapono in that he does 1 thing very well and everything else poorly... (don't dare say offense - he averaged 14ppg shooting 45%).
    When Tom Chambers dunks an NBA player gets their hops...
