Wolves Updates 2/13

When the Minnesota Timberwolves player Gerald Green goes to
defend his slam dunk title at the All-Star game this weekend, teammate
Rashad McCants will be with him. 
 
"Going to watch and help Gerald with the dunk contest … I’m going to participate in the dunks, help him," said McCants. 
 
 
I think it’s a good field … and until someone dethrones Gerald, he’s
the champion … I think it’s a bunch of good young guys. And to have the
fans involved in the Sprite Slam Dunk competition, going on NBA.com and
texting their vote, I think it will be a lot of fun. Hopefully the fans
cast a fair vote, and everyone has an honest chance to win.
 
 
 
Brian Murphy/Pioneer Press on Randy Foye: 
Tuesday’s game was his seventh after missing 43 with
a stress reaction in his left knee. After scoring eight points and
logging a season-high 27 minutes, 16 seconds against Toronto on Sunday,
Foye scored seven points in 21:41 against the Nets.
 
His 4-for-10 shooting and three turnovers show he
still is trying to regain his touch from last season, when Foye
essentially ran the offense from the point as a rookie.
 
 
 
Previews for tonight’s game against the Lakers:
 
 
 
The Lake Show plays Target Center tonight, having gone 4-1 since adding
Pau Gasol in a trade with Memphis that cost LA a few bags of confetti
and one of owner Jerry Buss’ stained leisure suits. A victory tonight
would make the Lakers 7-2 on their Grammy-avoiding road trip, which
would be the NBA’s best record in nine or more continuous road games
since neutral-site road games were eliminated in 1975.
 
 
 
As a side note, the Nets had a chance to trade Richard for Al and
Theo Ratliff back in Oct. 2006. I would have done that. Who knows what
would have happened had the Nets done that. Maybe the Nets would have
been in a better position to get Kevin Garnett? 

 

  
 
The photo of an unidentified youngster wearing a Timberwolves T-shirt and holding up a sign that read, "KG will always be a Wolf (No. 21) in Celtics clothing (No. 5)" in last Saturday’s Pioneer Press and reprinted here was of Max Musselman, 9, son of late Timberwolves coach Bill. Max and his mom, Julie, live in Shorewood.
