How Good Would the TWolves Have Been If Steph Stayed?

Barbershop argument...as usual...but this cat was saying the Wolves are playing good because of the 1, 2 combo of Rubio and Love and if Steph would've stayed, KG would've got a ring WAAAAY before Boston. Which I TOTALLY disagree with...I mean we're talking about a time when Shaq was still on the Lakers. I think the Wolves would've mos def got out the first round but winning a chip with KG, Steph and Googs? Naw...what ya'll think?

Here's an old interview from '98, with Bob Costas interviewing Steph and KG...

    lol. no. they wouldn't have beaten the spurs or lakers. I guess its possible but unlikely they could have beaten the Detroit team, but they never would have made it that far b/c well, they couldn't beat the spurs or lakers or even kings. And Terrell Brandon was no slouch either.

    so we gonna completely ignore his chemistry issues

    if steph would have let his giant ego to the side, i could see the wolves going deeper in the playoffs but hell naw i couldnt see them winning a ship....darius basically wrapped it....

    we would have built around KG and Marbury and been in contention with San Antonio and LA for years,

    and for the record they were gonna pay Steph 94 million I believe but he didn't want it because KG made more and was

    the centerpiece, it was Kobe and Shaq before Kobe and Shaq "the team got beef between the post and the point" !!

    so Steph aint deserve a big deal then? Only KG deserved all the money?

    Even with Marbury and KG they wouldn't have been able to get out the 1st round. teams like the Lakers, Spurs, Kings, Mavs and Blazers were better.
    Fuck who's the baddest a persons status depends on salary
    That buck that bought that bottle could have struck the lotto

    They would have been better but they would have needed talent around them which the TWolves never did well
