This was a shocker after coming home from my birthday shopping. Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and now Kevin Garnett! The 2007 Celtics look like the 2004 Lakers. But considering the weak eastern conference, who can really contend other than Pistons and the Heats. Okay, the Cleveland Lebrons, with the powerful tandem of Old, Business, Kid, and Sport Lebron with Boobie Gibson, may have a chance, but Business might want to dunk more and looking good than pass which may result in chemistry issues with everybody else. But that’s beside the point. 🙂
Anyway, I think the Timberwolves still look good as a team after seeing what they got. They got a good power forward in Al Jefferson, a up-and-coming tweener center/forward in Ryan Gomes, a young and potentially great guard in Gerald Green, all talent but no focus player Sebastian Telfair, and a good veteran leader in Theo Ratliff with an expiring contract. But this takes them a step back, definitely.Overall, Celtics: win; Timberwolves: 50/50; and the Eastern Conference is still a 3-4 team show.
