I'm guessing they did it so the young players could get some playing time. I think they could've gotten someone better than Walker for Davis.

Walker=Trash.

I still think Walker is way underrated. Yeah, coaches should keep him from jacking the threes indiscriminately, but the fact remains that he is big and skilled. He'll continue to get everything he has always got, in the paint. Antooine Walker CAN score in the paint, as dreadful as his three-point shooting is. And he CAN pass pretty well for a big man.

I know he's a laughing stock, but the guy can play some ball. Minny did okay, all said.

The trade is still lopsided even if you don't think Walker is trash. Davis alone is worth more than Walker and Minny throws in Blount as well? Damn. Why couldn't we get in on that?

chumdawg
10-24-2007, 11:19 PM
Blount has been a net negative for about three years now, because of his contract. Granted, it gets less bad the closer his contract gets to done. But Walker will way outperform Blount for the remainder of their contracts.

Davis is a good for Miami, but evidently Minny was just selling him to the highest bidder. It's a good deal for Minny from a cap perspective, as well as getting something of usefulness back on the floor. And if there's one thing we know about A Walker, it's that you can trade him easily. I doubt he finishes his contract in Minneapolis.

You're severely overrating Blount. He's a Raef Lafrentz starter kit.

Underrated, huh? Let's look at where he stood last year...

It's been a rough summer for 'Toine, robbed in his Chicago home at gunpoint, so I am inclined to go easy on him. But it's impossible to ignore just how bad he was last year. He shot 39.7 percent from the field, which put him 355th in the league. He was 43.8 percent from the free-throw line, which was 432nd. He shot 27.5 percent from the 3-point line, or 232nd. That is an alarmingly low success rate for an NBA player, especially one making $8.5 million.

So Kevin McHale saves basketball by making the East more interesting?

He single-handedly turned the Boston Celtics and (to a lesser degree) Miami Heat into contenders...

Did Stern put him up to this or is he so incompetent that he just can't see what he's doing?

He's not a terrible player and he's a better option than Doleac. I was just a little taken aback when you said that Miami had acquired a good young center. I've never been a fan of centers who spend all their time on the perimeter shooting jump shots.

Plus he's 31 and the Heat are on the hook to play Shaq $20MM a year for the next 3 years. He's not walking away from that kind of money.

Ohh I didnt know he was 31..I thout he was younger...but still they get a good back up then and some1 tht can give them minutes if Shaq needs rest

Are you talking about Davis because if u are ur crazy. I would take Davis over any sg we got on this team now besides Terry. George, Hassel, Jones, Ager,...in fact id give up 3 of them just to have Davis here,,the guy has a bad rep. but he can play and we know how bad rep. players do whn they come to Dallas. I wish we had gotten him instead of Hassel

Walker Relieved To Join Timberwolves
October 27, 2007 - 12:58 am
Globe And Mail -
After arriving in Minnesota, Antoine Walker sounded relieved with his fresh start — even if contending for a playoff spot with the Timberwolves looks like a huge long shot.

Though Walker said he had a good time in Miami, he voiced his frustration Friday that Miami is so image-obsessed and that body shape is so important to the average person there.

"Minnesota is so inclusive-- ever body type is accepted. Fat isnt just accepted; it's the norm here. In Miami everyone wanted me to work out-- do cardio, you know?"

And while Walker may be pleased with the culture of chubbiness in the midwest he won't be able to cover up with a puff-paint sweatshirt and toque while on the court-- something Walker isn't ready to accept.

"David can shove it. He knows what I'm talking about" Walker said during his first appearance since being shipped to Minnesota with two other players and a first-round draft pick in exchange for Ricky Davis and Mark Blount, a response to NBA commissioner David Stern's strict policy on uniforms.

"Coming here gives me an opportunity to be a leader again, to kind of put my stamp on some of these young guys - to help them out so they can become better players, help them in their off-the-court decisions as well as on the court," Walker said. The three-time All-Star, who was an important contributor to the Heat's 2005-06 title, averaged career lows last season with 8.5 points and 23.3 minutes" -AntoineWalker

Anybody notice he played zero minutes in the 2nd half up till that moment? Shows how competent Minnesota's coaching staff is. You've got Gomes, Telfair, and even Buckner who could shoot the 3 and they draw up a play for someone who hasn't played the entire 2nd half. Nice job.
