T-Wolves just got the biggest steal thus far in the draft

I'm so pumped to get Babbitt at 16 as a T-Wolves fan. He got the confidence to succeed and is a hell of a scorer on the wing, exactly what we needed. Would have preferred Cousins (since we couldn't get Turner) at 4 over Wes, but I am satisfied. Babbitt is gonna be huge for us though IMO. Very pleased with the pick here...as long as we don't trade it. knock on wood.

Now just get a big man like Sanders/Alabi/Parahouski. Maybe Crawford for a bench scorer later.

Im sick to my stomach right

Im sick to my stomach right now. The only cure for Kahn is pepto/vodka shots. And to think he fooled me into supporting him. Im ashamed of myself and this organization.

How much piss can a T-Wolves

How much piss can a T-Wolves Martell Webster jersey soak?

How long does it take to burn a piss soaked Martell Webster T-Wolves jersey?

Kahn is a madman and a tease.

Ryan Gomes is a decent player

Ryan Gomes is a decent player as well. Maybe I take Webster for him straight up, maybe.

But to trade Babbitt in that deal is unconscionable. Kahn thinks hes so smart too. This is what happens when you give unqualified media members real power in controlling sports organizations.

@M-DYMES You're crazy... Did

@M-DYMES

You're crazy... Did you watch ANY of Webster last season? If you did, you'd know he has plenty of size, athleticism, shooting and most importantly... DEFENSIVE ability on the wing.

Butler...defense? We have

Butler...defense?

We have Corey Brewer on the wing for that and now just added Wes Johnson.

We need points, and while Webster is a "sharpshooter", Babbitt could end up as an elite player in this league. It is a dumb ass trade a you know it.

If you haven't yet noticed our best scorer is averaging 17 ppg and puts the ball up whenever it ends up in his hands in the post.

You honestly would rather have Webster and his contract over Babbitt and Gomes? Come on man. I love your posts typically, but I gotta disagree with you on this one.

What in the hell makes you

What in the hell makes you think Babbitt can be an "elite" player in the NBA? He scored against players in the WAC. Nevada didn't even play against anybody significant. They didn't w...

Wow... You guys just took Trevor Booker with the 23rd pick! LOL.... Ha ha ha ha... WOW. You guys could've gotten him in the 2nd round!

How about Trevor Booker?

23, man, I knew he was getting some good reviews, but that is high. And another undersized 4 not known for his D? Wow, Kahn is just trying to get fired.

bro

your team just took a mid 2nd rounder 23rd i feel so bad for you, and butler idk if your talking to me but i never said babbit would be eliter, im just saying gomes and webster are about the same talent wise, and you also give up a first round talent its a steep price for a role player.

I'd put money on it that he

I'd put money on it that he ends up a hell lot better than your boy Gordon Hayward. Not to mention he is a great shooter with a high release, that will translate just fine no matter where your coming from. He has great length, size, confidence, work ethic, and is a very good athlete. I would welcome that much more than Webster. I like Webster, but I think Babbitt is going to be a much better player.

Yea now we grab Booker at 23. God this team is unbelievable. I feel bad for Jonny Flynn who I like alot. I'm done with these guys, my devotion is now damn near 100% behind my hometown Sixers.

LOL... Trevor Booker??? Back

LOL... Trevor Booker???

Back to what I was saying about Babbitt. I doubt he'll be better than Webster. I mean, Webster played on a Portland team that was absolutely loaded at the wing. He's a good player. He's a great athlete, can shoot, put the ball on the floor and finish, and he has the potential to be an elite defender.

I don't know who'll be

I don't know who'll be better. I know the Jazz took a seriously look at them both and decided on Hayward.

Nevada didn't play against anybody at all. Butler had a good non-conference schedule both of the years Hayward was there. I've seen Hayward up against NBA caliber players. I can't say that about Babbbitt.

Yeah webster is a good athlete and has a decent offensive game but IMO he doesn't try his hardest at all times and he doesn't seem to care if his team wins he's a selfish player for sure and i'm not sure he's better than corey brewer/w.johnson so he'll still see limited playing time.

Webster

Not exactly great at putting it on the floor, but definitely could be much better with a change of scenery, and is better than anyone else they have on the wing at this point. I wouldn't be surprised if he played 2, and he is a solid defender. Injuries have always been a concern, and he just never found his niche. But I like Babbitt to Portland, I think he will find a home there. The kid can shoot, and we could use some bench scoring, definitely a change from Nicolas Batum (who is the future).

Just cuz your coach is a

Just cuz your coach is a defensive coach doesn't mean every player on your squad has to be a lockdown defender. He can teach Luke how to play some D. I think Luke will be utilized there more for off the bench scoring and his D will improve in time. His upside is very high.

He doesn't have to be a

He doesn't have to be a lockdown defender, there aren't that many in the NBA, but he does need to be able to deny dribble penetration. IF he can't defend, he won't be on the floor for very long.

Babbitt just reminds me of Luke Jackson, a player who Portland already had.

To each his own, but I would

To each his own, but I would be shocked if he ends up with a career like Luke Jackson. I think this kid is the real deal. We'll see. As long as he continues to work hard which I think he will, I see him developing into atleast a very solid pro.
