    I’m getting greedy when I say this but the Only thing that I wonder about is his athleticism

    How are you so sure? So the reports of GS offering #2, Wiggins, etc for Harden was hogwash?

    So for folks wanting Cade, tough choice tonight, watch Oklahoma St. vs Oklahoma part 2 right off saturday's OT game or watch the Houston Rockets :eek:

    Don't the TWolves have the worst record in the NBA right now?

    I love Cade but with KPJ in the wings it makes me wonder about adding an hyper athletic front court player with the way KPJ is handling PG duties. Unless you take Cade and let KPJ play 2 guard, but he seems to thrive with the ball in his hands.

    Tough choice.

    There are questions about that but then Luca had the same questions.

    I need to see him play more.

    And they STILL weren't in the upper half of the conference until they added CP3.

    So, again, my point still stands.

    SGA seems to be doing just fine...Cade’s skill and shooting ability is just too good

    In watching them this past Saturday..... Oklahoma State was playing a zone defense and would switch in space to avoid Cade going out to the
    perimeter vs the smaller PG/SG's. Rockets would need Kevin Porter to guard the smaller players on the perimeter. Only flaw I noted.

    Well Steph Curry has won championships with the defensive opposite......can't hang with the big dogs near the rim

    Cade looked very good defensively 10 feet and in

    You need more than one guy who can make sh!t happen .... Harden and Kyrie seem an odd fit but they are fantastic offensively (even with KD out) together and both ball dominant.

    If the gods bless us and we get the top 4 pick were at a really good starting spot for the rebuild. Draft lottery night is going to be something.

    Should be optimisitc about it.

    I mean, what are the odds that the Twolves get ANOTHER #1 pick, twice in a row? I'd say pretty low. One of the top 5 teams likely will drop out of the top 5, hopefully, it's them. They've had enough #1 picks, they've had their shot.
