A lot of Timberwolves fans are upset about the Derrick Williams for Luc Mbah a Moute trade with the Sacramento Kings. Unless those people have a phobia of mispronouncing names, they should just calm down.
Derrick Williams is talented. Unfortunately, most of those talents don’t equate being a good team basketball player. If the league had a double-pump contest, or a “Who can make the most bone-headed play immediately after doing something good?” showdown, Derrick would probably win. Other than that, he was mostly useless to us. Yeah, he’s talented. But guess what? So is every player in the NBA. If that wasn’t the case then I’d be suited up in my Larry Bird/John Stockton shorts doing whirly-bird hook-shots from half-court. Another airball! Where’s my paycheck? Ca-ching!
Maybe Williams will go on to super-stardom in the happy, functional, mature, totally not cursed, non-violent family that is the Sacramento Kings? I hope you understand sarcasm, son, because you just got bitch-slapped with it. This is vicious Western Conference. Almost literally every team is .500 or higher, while in the East you make the playoffs if you have a pulse and a can name which team Michael Jordan was on. If you’re not with us, you’re against us. I hope that DeMarcus Cousins headbutts Derrick Williams and he ricochets into Ben Mclemore, giving them all soap opera style amnesia and they forget how to play basketball.
So how long before we trade Shabazz?
