Meh, oh well. Never expected to have a chance anyways. The Wolves can't play decent basketball for 48 minutes, why would anyone think they could play perfect basketball for 48 minutes (that's what it takes to beat Detroit).

Good game fellas and thanks for Billups and Flip now if we can only talk ya into letting Garnett come over. Good to see the Minny fans give a warm welcome to Flip after the firing. Detroit is just playin at a different level right now, even as a fan thats watched since early 80s this is a special group that Joe D has put together and they are playin like theyre on a mission this year. Good luck with the rest of the season. :cheers:

The buzz around the Target Center last night was about a possible trade with the Celtics. No, not Mark Blount. The rumor is Szczerbiak, Hassell, and Olowokandi for Pierce and LaFrentz. Somebody even said that Boston agreed to it, but the Wolves backed out because of LaFrentz's big contract. Who knows if anything will happen, but that along with the news that Artest said he wants for either the Wolves or Knicks makes me happy after a tough loss.

Where have you seen that Artest said that?

i thinks a big shakeup is really the only thing that could save this season,i wish that trade on peirce will happen,Wally and Hassell worth it,nothing to talk about Olowokandi.

P.S

sorry for the language before.

They said it during the game, and I heard it on Fox 9 news as well.

As for the language, I really just wanted to edit something, no biggy. :D

Ohh ok,cause i just saw Ric Bucher of the Espn,talks about what's next for Artest,he said us and denver fell by the sideroads in the chase.
He said lakers has the upper hand as of now,cause Artese just bought a house in Callifornia as he was thinking he was going to play for either of the LA teams.

What an atrocious deal for Boston. I already said my piece regarding this.

So the Celtics want to get younger or get cap space. They trade LaF's huge salary - for another one! Granted, Wally actually doesn't suck, but why on earth would they trade one big salary to get another one? They get significantly worse without adding youth or helping their cap situation in any major way. That's just plain stupid, I don't think any GM not named Rob Babcock or Isiah Thomas would ever do this deal from the Celtics side. Just keep Pierce in the first place, the cap situation is almost the exact same and you're better with him than S/Hassell/Kandi.

Secondly, Wally/Hassell/Kandi is not enough to fetch Pierce. If the Wolves backed out of this trade, McHale needs to be stabbed. Immediately. With a rusty icepick. Minny's cap situation sucks anyways, and putting Pierce next to KG makes this a very, very dangerous team. Backing out because of LaF's salary, when it is just as much as Szczerbiak's, does not make any sense whatsoever.

There is no way this rumor is correct.
