But that's the word from DraftExpress. They actually use the phrase "locked in", as in McHale is locked in on Love as his favorite player. That is no good, man, no good at all.
DraftExpress points out that "many" would consider Love a reach with the #3 pick. I'd amend that to say, "erveryone would consider Love a huge fucking reach. Why on earth would the Timberwolves draft the one position, the absolutely only position at which they have a guaranteed star in the making in power forward Al Jefferson? There isn't a single player starting for the Wolves who could not be potentially replaced by a player in the this draft.
DraftExpress also reported rumors about trading the #3 to Memphis, which would only be moving down two spots. If McHale wants Love, he should be looking to drop about 10 places at least. And even then, I don't see how picking a power forward/ undersized center makes any sense in this draft, not if actually improving the team is the goal.
Of course, this is all anonymous sourcing and rumor-mongering, and with luck, nothing will come of it.
