If the Timberwolves sign Kirilenko, they'll have 11 white players to 4 black players. That's crazy.
Probably because they have a team that's about 75% white in a league that's 80% black. That's an anomaly.
As I watched Calderon get beet off the dribble by everyone he guarded today, I hope he was laying low, for I have no desire to see that matador on the Pacers if that is all he has.
"I like our group of people," Ainge told USA Today. "I'm trying to teach them about basketball, and they're trying to teach me about analytics."
The Suns are only getting the best of this deal cause they get a 1st round pick, everyone getting meh players otherwise. It's kind of a filter of crap each team doesn't really want.

"It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

I would not mind getting Wes and a first. Oh well.
Good deal for the Suns. Wes maybe just needed a change of scenery.
My offseason FA wishlist:
Sergio Rodriguez (backup pg)
Thomas Robinson (backup pf)
Andray Blatche (starting pf - replacing West)
Corey Brewer (starting sg/sf - interchangeable w/ PG)
If turner beats out hill and mahinmi in camp then fine, but odds of that happening are slim.
From a pure statistical perspective, the chances are approximately 5 in a million.
I just don't see where the Suns made out like a bandit. To me Warrick for Johnson... salary wise. Lopez for a protected 1st. To me it's just a nice trade for the Suns.
It was a nice trade for Minnie too, b/c they get Lopez to b/u Pekovic since they now don't have Darko, Miller, Randolph, Toliver, or Beasley.
Both the Suns and T-Wolves have really turned their rosters since the end of the season. Both have about 7 players each gone from the year ending roster.
LOL! DUH, and I'm always the one b******* to myself about others lack of reading comprehension!!!
Thanks for pointing out my lack of reading comprehension. I never have a problem being shown when I make a mistake.
So Minnesota lost 2 high lotto picks - Flynn (#6 in 2009) and Wes Johnson (#4 in 2010), gone for peanuts. And yet Minnesota is actually a vastly improved team over the last few years. Guess high lotto picks aren't the be-all and end-all after all
Similar argument could be made for Thabeet, or even Darko - high profile lotto busts who didn't materially influence their team's fortunes.
