I know I shared this post and it is a copy. I am just excited about the prospect of Derrick Williams on the roster over a trading for a Vet who will come and go -as usual. So here is my take for what it is worth.
I am more of a reader here as I blog on Vikings more. But sitting in a whellchair in Florida and following all "My" Minnesota teams is a favorite passtime.
I am not a basketball guru in any sense of the word. I just gotta say, I have been watching so much tape of Derrick Williams I can't help but think he might be one of the potential superstars of this draft. What I saw was a guy who was willing to "kill" to get his own missed shot. A guy who doie not shy under the boards and saw some really incredible plays.
Tho no pick is a "sure thing" I really like this kid.
How Williams visualized a combo of 3 versitile forwards in place of a big lump underneath trodding up and down the court could work to our benefit. Now thiose were not his words. It is just my translation.. Beasly, Love (in the middle and Williams could be an explosive attack. Add Wesley in the mix and it keep s D's on their toes.
If we want the big Center in there we use them but, then cut loose with a hard breaking line of forwards who play both ways.
Thanks for letting me share. Been waiting years for the Wolves to blossom (like everyone) If Rubio can set it up and one of these forwards take the shooting guard spot we could be very dangerous.
I say screw getting the established vet. Let's keep our young flock and let them grow wings. Don't trade the #2 or Derrick Williams. Let's see if these guys can form a bond rather than castoffs from other teams who will come in and whine about playing with a traditional loser.
Young guys will want to establish their own brand of basketball and teamwork. Let's not screw around with a good thing.going
