Early returns indicate that Minnesota has doubled its collection of good players. The manner by which Kevin McHale achieved this feat does not encourage optimism regarding the potential improvement of the remainder of the roster. Unfortunately, as Ricky Davis and Mike James continue to exist in limbo between being excellent supporting players or a self-destructive, would-be stars, there's nothing else on the roster but mediocre role players and guys who can't beat out mediocre role players for minutes.
But for his most saddening microfracture surgery, Rashad McCants would surely have endeavored to make Davis expendable. Perhaps in '07-'08, after Kevin Garnett's clock has made one more revolution.
