    Mc Hale is an idiot!!!! What a stupid trade, If he didn't hate the Lakers we could've conned him into giving us Mayo for Sasha!!!
    Mayo will be an awesome NBA All-Star for his entire career...........Love? Can I say Christian Laetner????

    I think it was a decent trade for both teams. No one knows how Love or Mayo will pan out...

    Memphis got Mayo who could be an all star one day. They get a nice backcourt with Mayo and Conley along with Gay at the 3. They just need a PF and they're set. They get some veteran depth with Walker.

    Minnesota gets a future starter and solid NBA player in Kevin Love (don't see him as an all star). they also get a proven starter and underrated talent in Mike Miller who can shoot and score. They can surround these guys around Al Jefferson and hey you never know.

    The trade worked for both...Minnesota might regret it if MAyo is a star and Love isn't and Memphis might regret it if the above is vice versa and Miller plays well there too.

    I'm worried that Kevin Love is going to be in foul trouble all the time. His lack of quickness and jumping is really going to hurt him on the defensive end. Like many young bigs I think he'll foul a lot.

    With 2 dumbass GM's involved, one has to end up making a good deal.....right? I actually like this trade for Minnesota. They showed great competitiveness for a young team last year. Bringing Love and Miller in justs add 2 guys that can compete and play hard. Plus, something that's being grossly overlooked is the fact that they got rid of Jaric's contract ($7 m / y for 3 more years) for Cardinal's ($5.5ish / y for 2 years). They know they aren't making the playoffs this year. If they can stay healthy, these guys can take a year to mesh and play together, then they'll have a nice little expiring contract to maybe bring in another piece next year.

    For Memphis...I think OJ is a VERY talented player. He's gonna put up much better numbers than Love (although I think Love's contributions will go beyond that), but Memphis has like a million scoring wings / guards? WTF? Love would've been a perfect fit for them. He would've given them toughness, rebounding, and grit; stuff they lack now...

    A million of guards, yes. Scoring guards/wings, no. Only Rudy Gay and Mike Miller, now Mayo. I agree that Love would have been a perfect fit. But it is also true that Memphis needs an impact player (in all senses), that Mayo can be but Love will probably not. The bad part for Memphis is getting Jaric's contract and that they are even more weak in the frontcourt after losing Collins (I don't like him, but still is a presence in the paint). I think it could end up a good trade for both teams, and I was very reluctant to the trade at the beginning...

    I think that Minnesota improved their starting line-up and bench while getting rid of bad contracts. Memphis got a star player for their future. I don't see what is wrong with this trade.

    Memphis really needed some more talent in the backcourt and Mayo could turn out to be something special. Minnesota has been begging for a guy with decent size in their front court, so that players like craig smith can play quality minutes WHEN NEEDED.

    Minnesota also hasn't had a quality 2-3 spot guy and if sophomores like Corey Brewer can't play the 3 and they're looking for Rashad to come off the bench with scoring. It will work out well for Mike Miller being in Minnesota. Foye/Miller/Gomes/Al J/Doleac or Collins....not a bad starting line-up and Rashad can pick up the scoring load off the bench. Minnesota is going to be a lot better next year.

    thanks. we need another star to fill some spots and have one of the best young teams in the league. Watch out the Grizzlies in four years, they will be in the top of the West with Portland. By the way, how are your Knicks doing?

    Wow seriously talking trash about the grizz. When was the last time the knicks had an above .500 record. Your entire squad is overpayed trash. Besides your young guns. But they also suck. Galiinari might be good. But im sue he will leave the knicks when he realize how badly run that organization is. How much is marbury getting payed again? What about q-rich or randolph, or jerome james for that matter. In two years the griz will have almost 20 million in cap room and another three lottery picks on this squad. With already having a great core of young guys in rudy gay, mayo, conley, critt, lowry, arthur, gasol. Your team has maybe three players worth a damn. So check your idiocy at the door before you talk trash.

    We give up Kevin Love and Mike Miller, but we get a player filled with potential and could possibly be the best player from this year's draft. Hmmmm.....I know which I would rather have.
