Quick shots


(Oleisky Pecherov after the game.)

Since last night's Wolves/Bulls tilt was broadcast on FSN somewhere in the neighborhood of 12:30 AM, and since I would never dream of telling people to watch pirated game streams...cough...today's wrap-up post will be less wrap-up and more general thoughts about the Wolves at this point in the preseason. 


  • Stewie can probably defend better than Pecherov.
  • Mike Miller actually shot the ball for the Wiz last night.  Maybe it's the new hair dye. It also looks like 4th Quarter Foye made a small appearance.  I don't really have anything other to say than: Prepare yourselves Wiz fans...prepare yourselves.  I won't say what for, but you'll know it when you see it.  (Hint: it has something to do with Magic Mike and kamikaze drives down the right side of hte lane.)
  • It will be really interesting to see Corey Brewer's on/off OE/DE numbers this season.  Last year the Wolves were significantly better on defense while he was on the court compared to when he was off.  The (relative) positive here was that while this was happening, the team's OE stayed remarkably constant.  In other words, Brewer's offensive ineptitude didn't hurt the team more than his defensive impact helped it.  (Keep in mind we're still talking about a crappy team here.)   Is Brewer a plus defender?  Mark this one down as one of the big questions of the year.  Is he as good as we think he can be or is it a bunch of smoke and mirrors? 
  • Kevin Love got rid of his Color Me Bad beard.  
  • With Jonny Flynn and Ramon Sessions on the roster, and with Ricky Rubio overseas, does anyone have any nostalgia for the Kirk Hinrich trade that never happened? 
  • I will never, ever approve of black athletic socks.

Well that about does it.  The cuts should start in the next few days or so.  Who will stay and who will go from the bottom half of the roster?
