The Trade---With one of the biggest trades in the NBA for recent years, now it is important to ask who won? After all, the NBA and all of professional and now amateur sports is about winning.
I would say, that in the trade between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves, the real winners were both teams. By going out and getting a great player like Kevin Love, a consistent all-pro, it proved the Cavaliers after signing LeBron James in July are willing to go out and get even better, despite acquiring James. The reason for the win by the Timberwolves, was they got young players, who have so much potential led by Andrew Wiggins.
As a reader, what do you think?
Oregon State---The Beavers are not going to win the Pac-12 this year in basketball. But, everything I am hearing about new coach Wayne Tinkle is positive. The Beavers will make some noise in the Pac-12 and this should be a team to watch in future years, as Tinkle builds a program that can be sustainable.
An NCAA appearance is sorely needed in Corvallis, hard to believe the last time the Beavers appeared in the "Big Dance" was 1990.
