Default If Minnesota could go back?

Just for the hell of it .. I wonder if McHale is thinking.. hmmm.. Maybe just maybe I should have gone for that Bynum, Odom and Farmar trade.
I wonder if he thinks about it now watching Bynum whoop butt.
I would have been mad as I never wanted Bynum traded. Kidd and Garnett are stars now but my concern would have been the future after their respective end of runs in the league. Kobe would have been gone or older.. as would have garnett or kidd.. even J. O'neal. I said it before and restate it.. I would rather watch the Lakers develop and love watching the team gel with Bynum and Kobe gone at that time than trade away the very good team and core we have now.

So now I know Minny got a crapload of players.. but I can only wonder would the Owner and Mchale have pulled the trigger seeing what bynum can be, and is doing. I laugh thinking now.. and breathe a sigh of relief that Mitch and BUss held their ground on trading bynum. ( side note: KObe has been doing very well playing nice with the team... it is appreciated especially as a fan of the team.)

Any one else's thoughts?

One - Mchale would NEVER trade with the Lakers. So the Garnett deal was just speculation.

The owners put together the trade, but McHale overruled it and sold Minny ownership that the best deal was the one Boston had.

Mchale is an ediot...All Al jefferson can be is more of a kurt thomas kind of player....he only wanted to help his former team .......the other ****ty thing is that the owner did nothing about it...such a bunch of losers are the Twolves

that would have been a hell of a deal for minny to take, but the only problem is that he wouldn't be helping his buddy ainge out by trading with LA...

in fact, if minny got bynum, odom, and farmar...they could probably be a solid team right now....hell, just look at what portland's doing...

Default Re: If Minnesota could go back?

man from from the getgo I thought we had the best offer. I mean I strongly believe that Lamar Odom is better than Al Jefferson. Period. He might be good as a go to guy or what not but I feel even though lamar is going through a funk, that boy is a baller. It's just for the last few seasons and off seasons lamar has been injured or going through off the court issues or sometimes even both. I want Lamar to go through 1 full offseason healthy where he can work on his game.Dont get me started with Bynum. He is better than any player that got dealt for KG. I believe that our offer of Lamar/Bynum/Famar crushed the deal that the celtics gave.(Then and now)

Exactly! McHale wanted to do business with his buddy from his old team, plain and simple. He is GM of the year for the Celtics. He is a complete idiot and if I were a T-Wolves fan, I would have his house blown up for selling out his team.

AFter watching what happened with our lakers so far, I dont think that only Kobe and Garnett would be able to accomplish a 24-11 start.

Seems way too limited with only having Kobe, Garnett, and noone else to contribute much. Maybe fisher would but hes on and off. He's not always going to score 22.

You guys realize that Al Jefferson is playing extraordinarily well and that Randy Foye hasn't played a game this season? That trade accomplished a lot for Minnesota and it will be pretty evident in 3-4 years. This coming draft is very deep again and Min will probably have #1 pick (Derrick Rose or O.J. Mayo). Anyone see a back court of 1 of those guys and Foye being pretty damn good? I know I do.

While Minnesota did get some good young talent, none of that young talent is as good as Bynum is. I was one of the people that said trade Bynum but now I'm glad they didn't. When it comes to winning championships there are really only going to be 3 big men in the league, Bynum, Yao, and Howard. LA is headed in the right direction. Now I see why they wanted to make that trade with anybody but Bynum, because with him playing next to a great PF like Garnett it would have made things even that much easier on Bynum.

Its funny that people want to ignore Al Jefferson. He is one of only 5 (count them FIVE) people in the NBA currently averaging 20/10.

I don't know if anybody is ignoring Al Jefferson. I think Bynum will be better. We have to remember, out of all the rookies in the NBA there are only 6 that are younger than Bynum and Bynum definately isn't a rookie anymore. He's almost ready for his first contract. There's still way more upside there. Plus there just aren't very many legit centers in the league anymore.

Bynum and Odom were part of ANY considered trade talks.. They wanted those two and MORE. When Buss and the Owner of the wolves oened dialogue.. this is what the owner of the lakers opened talks with in hopes pf getting garnett. You think odom alone with picks and bench was going to even get the door open?
Mchale stated that Bynum and Odom and Farmar were not enough for Minny to Get Garnett. That The Celtics Deal was the best offer of anythng tossed at them.
