AK and Shved combined stats were..

20/28
51 points
11 assists (all shoved)
10 rebounds

I think I saw Shved get 3 or 4 steals as well. I'm very impressed.



Those aren't their combined stats... I was watching the game and Shved and 13 assists alone- iirc he almost had a triple double...

Also doesn't Shved look like Ricky on this play



I got those from ESPN. It said Shved had 11 assists, AK had 0. Regardless, I'm excited.

Not seeing the same stats... but either way I know its only 1 game so I kinda wanna see this sustained over the tourney and especially vs Brazil, Spain, Argentina and the US.

But if this continues I wouldn't mind seeing JJ shipped out then... IMO he was a bad signing from the start

Hmm that's weird. Mine's from my phone if the takes a difference?

Oh well. I think JJ should be gone anyway I don't really see much of an impact from him this year.

I'd like to see William Buford join the team and we get rid of JJ actually.

So, Chad Ford did an article today giving the Wolves a "C" offseason grade, one of the worst in the league. Come on now, ESPN is getting so unbearable. We got rid of Wesley's suck, Webster and Darko. We added Brandon Roy who I dont expect to be anywhere near what he used to be but he could still be a pretty good player. We also added Andre Kirilenko whos good at defense and was awarded the MVP where he played last year. We added Chase Budinger. Got some defense behind Pek at the center position in Stiemsma. The darkhorse here is Alexey Shved, man this kid can shoot. May take awhile to develop but there is potential. He has a nice stroke from beyond the 3 point line. Yeah these additions are boom or bust except maybe Budinger and Stiemsma who are pretty sure things, but one thing that is overlooked is the guys we signed that could very easily bust were signed to 2/3 year deals. One things the wings should at least be able to do that the wings last year couldnt is hit open shots.

I think a B for the offseason is fair enough. Confused I like what we did.

Yeah screw ESPN. I was watching part of our thriller against OKC last year on NBATV today, it was so refreshing to know that I wont have to watch half those guys play anymore.

Has anyone had the moment yet where you see a picture of Wes Johnson and it sinks in that he is actually gone? Oh boy, now I'm all giggly and crap Very Happy Embarassed

So it sounds like Ricky is aiming to come back in the beginning of 2013

Sounds about right. Let's hope he doesn't have any setbacks while doing so.

Its awesome to hear the early reports on Roy, he could be the difference on the Wolves this year taking it to the next level and being able to compete with the elite teams...

Ive watched every minute of all 3 games so far. The team looks pretty freaking good. Roy looks nice, he can still get around people and hit shots. Shved really impressed last night, hit some shots but his defense has actually been better then I expected as well. Lovin this team so far.

Man im loving this team right now. We put a whooping on a euroleague team tonight, definitely not the caliber of an nba caliber team but still, good to see.

Love had a great night tonight, as did Pek. In terms of the new guys though, Roy had 19 points. Looked great, he was also very efficient, didnt take many shots. Its great to see. Kirilenko, man if he can stay healthy we are going to love him. Plays great defense, great passer and very efficient. Only took 3 shots, made 2 and the rest were free throws. Cunningham, man right now looks so much better then D-will. Its crazy, plays good D, has great hustle and has gotten a few putback dunks on hustle. Good midrange jumper as well. Budinger has also been an effective scorer for us in the preseason. Last its Shved, a guy I thought itd take awhile for to adjust to the NBA game. But after watching all the games, this guy can give us offense right away. Didnt play alot tonight for whatever reason, when he got in though went 2-3 and 1-2 on 3s. Hes a heck of a player and his D is improving. His passing is great as well.

As for the bad, man Williams looks bad. Just not good at all. Looks like he could find himself deep on the bench especially with guys like Cunningham who are outplaying him by far. Another is Barea, I defended this guy last year as long as I could. He blows, he always tries to drive to the lane, always turns it over and is a terrible finisher. I am rooting for Will Conroy to take his spot on this team, hopefully trading Barea. Conroy has actually looked pretty good.

I cant wait for the regular season. Wow.
