With Antwan Jamison as their best player? The Jamison/Butler duo would be one of the worst top duos in the league, and after them, what good roleplayers are there other than Antonio Daniels? Etan Thomas gives toughness but isn't anyone's idea of a good starter, there's no depth there, just two guys that can put up around 20 ppg and a bunch of low-level roleplayers. Plus, Butler has been unlucky with injuries. That team's going to be bad.

I think I'd take Gordon over Beasley or Rose. I think those guys are going to be NBA headcases.

Gordon is ever improving as a point guard prospect.

Minny will be the worst, I admit it. Unless we beat out Seattle.

Brewer will be our best player this year.

Butler is coming into his own, and Jamison is in his prime. Daniels is great at getting others involved, and Young may be a big surpise early on. They have too much NBA experience to be worse than Sota or Seattle.

Only if it's 11 or lower. I think it loses its protection in the 2009 draft.

I strongly disagree. As JDG pointed out, it'll be awfully tough for Brewer to be better than Jefferson, Davis and Foye.

I'm really interested to see how Foye does this year, though.

Maybe after this year we can get new jerseys. I'm sick of ours at this point.

The pick is top 10 protected. It belongs to the Clippers if the wolves get the #11 pick or worse... which I doubt. If it does happen, the Clippers are in for a HUGE turnaround from the draft alone.

If the Wolves do get the top 1-3 pick, then yes, get the best player available(Mayo, Beasley, or Rose). but if the Wolves some how get the 5th-6th pick, they should use it on Roy Hibbert. The Wolves already have a nice future starting 1,2,3 and 4 in Foye, Green, Brewer, and Jefferson. Adding a solid big man like Hibbert would be key to becoming a good team in the future.

Default Re: The T-Wolves are going to be the worst team this year.

its funny how everyone already has 3 freshmen as the top 3 prospects in the draft and make it seem like a given that they will be top 3 picks. i would be EXTREMELY surprised if that happens or even if they all land in the top 5

i also hear so much talk about these guys on this forum, but i wonder how many have actually seen them play

I think Seattle will be worse. Minny should just let their players develop and stack up the good draft picks and get rid of their bad contracts and look to break out in 3-4 years.

Also, Philly and Indy are going to struggle mightily.

I don't see how that is at all possible. The Wizards were fighting for the number 1 spot in the East for a good portion of last year. Unless their team plane crashes on a road trip and everyone is injured/dead, the Wizards are gonna be a top team in the East.
