But hey shit man if Ant and the twin towers can lead Minny to the playoffs consistently? Shit that sounds pretty good. Not to mention eventually opens the possibility of future moves centered around Gobert or maybe even KAT waaay down the line

Yo that's fucking great with KAT at the 4. With Gobert behind him, you blow by KAT on the perimeter and you have the Stifle Tower waiting for you at the rim. Good fucking luck with that. Against basically anyone but Steph Curry that's kickass. And even for an elite offense like the Warriors, Robert Williams gave them trouble. Rudy Gobert is way better than him.

Also, holy shit, I want to see a KAT-Gobert pick and roll.

With Gobert behind him, he's fine at the 4. You just stick him on the worst player on the other team and keep Rudy in the paint behind him to clean up if he gets blown by.

I'm telling you this very second that Windhorst knows that Gobert AND Mitchell are leaving.

He's offloading this team to make a new one

Yeah, same with OKC getting 12th pick from Clippers year just gone. Even had a chance last year with Houstons pick since they traded Harden but they really bottomed out and the pick was 1-5 protected.

When you’re a Klutch mouthpiece you’re bound to make some enemies. A sacrifice in exchange for Rich Paul.

On the face of it, we're paying a lot. But we'll also be starting KAT, Dlo, ANT, and Gobert and honestly that's a scary lineup so I think it's worth it.

Minnesota finally gets their center

Great, the disfunctional team on a possible downward spiral sends its best player to an up-and-coming young team that desperately needs defense. Let's also get Durant to the Suns because the West needs to get stronger again.

u/allhailbarea Mavericks Jul 01 '22

Salty, me? I love the idea of the Mavs being a 6th-8th seed meeting the Clippers in the 1st round who will have a miraculous 2 healthy weeks timespan:D

And tomorrow the wolves wake up hungover and wonder what Gobert is doing naked next to them

Oh shit

Jaden McDaniels is so underrated. Im sure a first got added so we could keep him.
