    Default Real GM Details on the David Harrison Derby

    Oct 11, 2008 9:28 PM EST




    David Harrison chose Minnesota over offers from both Chicago and Dallas because he was impressed with Kevin McHale, the St. Paul Star-Tribune is reporting.


    "McHale's a great man," Harrison said. "From our conversations, I can tell he cares a lot about the game and his players. He just gave me a general sense of well-being. I have to prove to the owners, the fans, my teammates that I am someone who can be depended upon to play both ends of the court and that I'll be ready for 82 games."


    The Wolves signed the 7-foot former Pacer to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract.


    In addition to interest from Minnesota, Chicago, and Dallas, it is believed that Harrison received offers from Europe.


    -------


    So David Harrison signed with Minnesota because he was impressed with McHale, and by that, he must mean that he likes his GM skills, right? He must really be smoking something.

    Can't hurt David to have a close personal relationship with the guy who might have the best post footwork of all time.

    Harrison needs to have a close relationship with the best neurosurgeon of all time.

    “People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    "So, which one of you guys is going to come in second?" - Larry Bird before the 3 point contest. He won.

    It's fairly obvious that he didn't consult the bathroom stall before deciding, maybe they aren't on speaking terms yet...

    Seems like a good place for him. They've got some big man talent with Love, Jefferson, and even Richard on the roster, but really, all 3 of those guys are PFs. They're going to play Jefferson at C for around 35 minutes per game, I'd say, but if David can beat out Rafael Araujo, which shouldn't be hard, he should get all the backup minutes at Center.

    Did anyone else read this story and think Mellencamp?
