I'm obviously in the minority here, but I don't think that Babcock is such a bad guy. He's ruined his chances of becoming a GM in the next decade or so, mostly because he is not respected by other GM's and player's agents. But as an assistant GM, I actually think that he's got a little bit going for him. I don't think he's completely unintelligent, and he seemed to really beef up our scouting dept. We've got Calderon, and now Slokar on our roster this year, and those moves are directly related to Babcock. Keep in mind that we signed Calderon as a free agent, the guy wasn't even drafted. There are a lot of first and second round draft picks looking for regular jobs right now because they couldn't make it in the NBA, Calderon was a steal.

I'd never swap Colangelo for Babcock under any circumstance, but I think Babcock has a lot of respect in Minnesota, and that's probably for good reason. He's been with Minnesota for many years, he had a rough year and a half here, but overall he's probably a very useful assistant.

Minny has had HORRIBLE GMing for years now. Even when they were winning some games. That isn't entirely on McHale (who with Isiah is the worst GM in the league). If Babcock came from a good program with a history of schrewd moves, then maybe I agree. But he came from a totally disfunctional front office in Minny, and came and made horrible moves in TO, with Jose and Slokar to show for it?? I think if ANY GMs money moves were Jose and Slokar.....yikes.

I also agree that Babcock is not a bad guy. There are too many spineless idiots in these forums and those I have heard on the radio that have dragged his name in the dirt. The situation and opportunity he was given most people would not take. Colangelo would not have taken it. Babcock had balls unlike a lot of you idiots in here.

Be interesting how many of you idiots that criticize and rip Babcock would go right up to his face and have the guts to say to him what you say in here.
