Very true. Glad they picked someone up, at least.

good pick up for the wolves... although this really doesn't fit in with their strategy of signing white guys so the fans can relate to them

Well duh...that's the only reason they did it, just to prove they're not racist.

Shouldn't be too surprising that the few signings they get to improve the team are Europeans....and Brandon Roy.

At the end of the day, the greatest thing to sell the fanbase on is winning. Been way too long for T-Wolves fans since that has happened.
For Wolves Fan this is the being of an era. Can't wait for all the injuries to heel. Still wish the Wild and NHL would end there lockout of fans. Minnesota without hockey......terrible.

Say what !! Oh sarcasm.. Basketball will do until hockey get done messing up the fan base. Sorry Wild-- me and bro's bought 8 set of 4-- and it cost so much less then Wild tickets. Are you sure this lockout of the fans is worth it.

Alrigh Avder and others, every time the Wolves are brought up we don't need to be reminded you don't like Basketball.

With everyone healthy Wolves are a playoff team...but not necessarily a shoo-in. With the current injuries, they're a lottery team.

Just wanted to share this with the T-Wolves fans on hfboards... The B. Roy era is officially over in Minny. It was a huge gamble on even attempting to play again when you don't have knees, but it was cool to see a once great player on the Target Center court

Damn. I really wanted to see Roy and Rubio together. They would've played off of each other so well.

That really sucks. Everyone knew it was going to happen, but everyone hoped that somehow he'd be OK. I'm glad the Wolves took a chance on him, and I really hope for his own health he admits that he can no longer play in the NBA. Really sucks to see such a likable, talented player go out like this.

Looks like Minnesota's leading receiver for the Goofs has quit.

That really sucks about Roy. He looked great those first games.

AJ Barker...well I don't know. If you read between the lines it sounds like he had an ego and Kill was trying to settle it down. On the other hand, if half the stuff he wrote is true, that's a pretty poor way to treat and adult who's paying to play football.

St. John's head coach John Gagliardi is retiring after 60 years. Going to be strange seeing the Johnnies play without him at the helm.

He's my girlfriend's great uncle. Had dinner with his family last weekend. They were surprised and thought he'd die on the field with his team

Man if the Pack could have lost to Detroit that would have been perfect.

Kevin Love back and active tonight. Not sure if he'll start or not. Looks like some sort of brace on his wrist.

So, the Wolves get 3 starters back, and we blow a lead.

Hurry back Rubio.

Playoffs here we come.

If we could actually hit some freethrows that game would've been ours easy.
