    You guys are all fools.

    This trade makes perfect sense for Minnesota. McHale is a moron, but not for the reasons you think.

    Ricky and Blount had no purpose on the Timberwolves this season. They would have only served to get in the way of the younger, developing players behind them.

    You do realize that Minnesota got a FIRST ROUND PICK for these two, right?

    A FIRST ROUND PICK for MARK BLOUNT AND RICKY DAVIS?!

    This is a good trade for both teams.

    For some reason I don't think the Wolves will buy out Toine. Like I said before, he'll fit well on a bad team.

    They got rid of Mark Blount - a terrible contract who does one thing (hit mid-range jump shots) - and they didn't have to give up anything they didn't already want to get rid of. Normally, in order to unload bad contracts, one has to give up young guys or draft picks. Not in this case. In this case, they got a pick out of the deal instead.

    Is that worth taking on horrible, horrible Antoine Walker? No. But it is if they buy him out and get him away from the youth. He won't have any worse effect than Ricky Davis did, especially if he's given a decent role. But that doesn't mean I ever want him to play in a Wolves uniform.

    Unfortunately, I think he will.
    the only problem is this board doesnt think.

    they dont think about how bad of a defender ricky is

    they dont think about how bad of a player mark blount is outside of shooting jump shots

    they dont think that these 2 are KNOWN terrible locker room presences.

    they dont think about how ricky plays when he wants to(of course, he'll wanna play all the time in miami cause of wade and shaw right )

    they dont think about like you said, blounts TERRIBLE contract

    seriously, if people only care about rickys scoring abilitys in this trade and that gives miami the clear cut win in this trade and it makes Mchale look like a stupid ass, you're totally missing out on everything. especially Minnesotas situation not being in a win now mission like miami is.

    good luck with ricky, heat fans...and thank you, no make that THANK YOU for taking Blount.

    hahahahaha, you'll see.

    Ricky is actually one of the best perimeter defenders in the league.

    Did I say leader or mentor? not the same thing brethren.

    Funny you put it quotes too...I guess that's your take..I think the young guys that went to Minnie will get direction if they aren't smart enough to know Walkers game is not their game...I don't see Al going out to take three's.

    wtf does Blount do anyways? All i read was some crap about Jefferson saying hes a nut, but he wasnt specific. Everyone talks like hes a headcase but what did/does he do specifically?

    Ricky Davis's attitude problems were more back in the day. I havent heard much about him being thug or gangsta in a long time.

    Ask anyone whos watched Ricky play the past few season in Boston or Minny.. they will tell you he is a good defensive player.

    Watch the games or dont judge.

    To put it simple, hes a smart ass. He'll answer media questions with some smart ass sarcastic response( like i dont know ask coach) **** like that, and he's just an old fashion ********* of a person.

    and LOL @ watch Ricky before boston and minnesota. dude that was 5 years ago. Ricky doesnt play defense, his last name is Avis for a reason.

    i was psyched to get him in boston because i thought he'd be the defensive stopper we needed at the 2 / 3 to free up pierce and still bring the big points. instead i wound up missing eric williams all year. we'll have to disagree on this one because i was hugely disappointed by ricky's defense (though i didn't think he showed any sort of an attitude problem).

    I think that may have to do with Davis living in Minnesota. Oh and a few seasons ago Blount changed the pronounciation of his name to sound like blunt.

    The reason Mchale pulled this deal off was so Ricky would not take any PT from his young nucleus and they actually save money in the long run. Walker has one year less than blount. They are looking to rebuild and they knew they wouldnt get much for Davis so they figured that they would just try to save as much dough as possible and give his young players the best oppurtunity to develop
