Wolves-Pacers ... last minute preview


David West contemplates imminent PEK-KKKKKKKKK!!!

The first prelude to Act I of the 82-0 revolution won't be televised tonight. It's an exhibition after all. Barring injuries, in fact, whatever happens in Fargo will stay in Fargo and mean less than nothing for the season to come. So the Wes what. I haven't been this excited about a Wolves team since 2004. I want a game preview. My feeble attempt after the jump.

What's to know?


vDanger Granger and Roy Hibbert (pictured above) would rather face the pancake man than PEK-KKKKKKKKK!!! Both are being held out of tonight's tilt for some made up reason.


    Paul George is a better basketball player than Wes Johnson, a better dresser than Wes Johnson and unlike Wes Johnson, didn't attend Syracuse ...

He's also still trying to live down the embarrassment of being picked six spots after Wes in the 2010 NBA draft. Two years from now, he'll still be trying to overcome the humiliation he's about to experience by a guy with no knee cartilage and two recent immigrants. Good luck with that.


Pacers point guards George Hill and Darren Collison (amused by D.J. Augustin's so-called "skills" at a recent practice) got an unexpected self-esteem boost with the news that Luke Ridnour would not be playing tonight.


As for the Wolves ...


Do the rumors of a new and improved Derrick Williams have any substance?


Will Brandon Roy's minimalist approach to knee anatomy stand up to the rigors of an NBA exhibition game Free-skull-photos-preview_medium

A stronger, leaner PEK-KKKKKKKKK!!! ??? It's a good thing NBA rosters are limited to 15 players or Pek would have to grow an extra bicep.


The Pacers didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night but rumor has it they were doing some late night reading.

That's all.
