At the end of the 2007/2008 season, these 2 teams were tied with 22-60 records.

In the 2008 draft, the Timberwolves picked at 3, 31, and 34 and the Grizzlies picked at 5 and 28.

At the end of the 2008/2009 season, the teams were again tied -- with 24-58 records.

In the 2009 draft, the Timberwolves picked at 5, 6, 18, 28, 45, and 47 and the Grizzlies picked at 2, 27, and 36.

At the end of the 2008/2009 season, the Timberwolves finished at 15-67 and the Grizzlies at 40-42.

In the 2010 draft, the Timberwolves picked at 4, 16, 23, 45 and 56 and the Grizzlies picked at 12, 25 and 28.

And now...

This game really ticks me off, the way the media has protrayed the Mayo-Love deal disregarding the teams records. Imagine what is doing to the Real OJ Mayo. Now Mayo is the showcase in the offense ( finally finally) ,

Twolves are in trouble, big big trouble. I have a feeling the Love-Mayo debate will end tonight with this game. I know never base assumption of just one game, especially a regular season game, but Twolves are in trouble.

I am not lying when I said OJ was taking Mental notes.

Answering Question:

The fan me:

I allergic to scrub NBA players, non-star potentials talents, and I am somewhat endowed particularly in the shooting guard position. There is no secret that after Jordan, I was particular fond of talents like Tracy McGrady, Latrell Sprewell, Kobe Bryant, Vince Carter, Jerry Streakhouse and Allen Iverson. They all happened to be SGs, very versatile and could play multiple positons including running an offense. You fall next in that category of star potential SGs, moreso then any young player arguably in the world. Who is your competition OJ? Monta Ellis, Brandon Roy, Tyreke Evans laugh.gif .

Can't wait until you showcase your talents, and justify while I have always spoken so highly of you.

I'm sorry to be the one to break this to you, but someone just found a picture of OJ and typed in a caption.

That wasn't really OJ Mayo talking to you.

I was really disappointed with Marc & Mike's play last night, but also with Zach's. I think this will be an interesting game to watch.

The last time the two teams met, and an All-Star appearance was on the line, Zach destroyed K-Love. Now that has come and gone, it will be interesting to see this rematch.

Completely on a side note, Kevin Love is no All Star.

man..... obviously it wasn't him. OJ is not very computer savy in real life by the way. He rarely ever uses the internets.


But once again it looks like OJ Mayo is auditioning for John Paxson. Things are getting serious according to Chad Ford. Bulls are really making the push to get OJ by tomorrow. If OJ shows out Paxson would most likely give Heisley exactly want he wants.


If OJ gets traded, we can all thank Lionel Hollins. He has misused OJ's talents for far too long, and has yet to be held accountable for it.

Go OJ! Show out! Whatever that means.

If Mayo can give Heisley exactly what he wants then maybe we can get players in here who will do exactly what the coaches want and we can win more games!

Is it that Hollins misused Mayo's talents or that Mayo's talents didn't fit well with what the team was trying to do?

Love how you're aware of his Internet usage. Does that mean he doesn't have an iPhone, droid, or blackberry? Just curious:P

If somebody is already interested in you and is aware of what you can do, why audition? Doesn't make sense.

I'm glad I didn't get the chance to watch the Denver game.

But this is a must win.

Otherwise, we probably need to trade now. Is trade deadline due yet?
