    Watching T-Wolves/Pelicans tonight....

    Am I crazy for having more long term faith in KAT than Anthony Davis? Not that I don't think Davis isn't a better talent, but his durability worries me and there is something intangibly I like more with Towns.

    My first question was going to be did AD get hurt again?

    Look at the breakdown of KAT and AD through their 1st 40 (I think) games. KAT has been better in every aspect.

    That team around AD just flat out stinks. He's in a bad spot. I still take him.

    KAT has infinitely better talent around him.

    It's not foolish to question AD's durability. But I think pound for pound talent wise he is and will continue to be better than KAT, health permitting.

    The health is my biggest thing. Seems like every game I watch Davis he comes up gimpy.

    I think it would be cool for the TWolves to get the first pick again. Add that joker from LSU and they'd be really fun to watch.

    AD durability issues are legit concerns. The guy hasn't played over 70 games in a season yet. That's kind of a big deal.

    The TWolves have some decent pieces, but not life changing pieces. Tayshaun and Garnett play to collect a check, but they are good from a mentoring standpoint. Rubio is ok, but they still need a long term answer at PG. Wiggins will be a great #2.

    KAT, Wiggins, Dieng, Shabazz, Rubio and Lavine isn't a bad young core. They need another major piece but that's a great start.

    I've lowered my expectations on Wiggins. The only thing he does on a high level is score. He's a B player.

    That is why I say he will be a #2, never a franchise center piece. Defensively Wiggins is good.
