    One good thing about MIN signing AK47 is it LIKELY means should a top SF become available there is one less contender (unless they include AK as part of any deal) for the Raptors to deal with.

    I feel like 10 million a year is too much for Kirilenko, didn't he come off the bench when he played in Utah? His defense is amazing though no doubt, but I think his best days are behind him.

    There's some shoddy extrapolations but I agree with most of its points .

    well gents...Minnesota is a playoff team.

    A starting line of

    suddenly I do not want to play this team
    Indeed a formidable line up. With Alderman coaching them, they should make some noise.

    That's highly contingent on which Brandon Roy they get.

    B Roy won't be his former self and can't play heavy minutes so this team won't be as good. It all depends on how well they are coached, i used to think adelman was a great coach but after witnessing Dwane Casey flip over defense to top 15 in the league i totally changed my mind. Even last year everyone said they'd make the playoffs and it never happened.

    One of the reasons I believe Minny may have overpaid to get Kirilenko is to impress upon Love that they are serious about putting a good team around him ...he has been making noises about his opt out option lately.
