Andrei’s the newest addition to my second favorite team, though they sort of just took a step down in their appeal to me by this addition.
It’s not that I don’t like Andrei, or that I don’t think it’s great that he’s decided to play in the NBA again, but he’s sort of been a household name to me since I was a kid, and always one of my favorite players (Except recently) and the fact that he signed with the Wolves over the Jazz is a bit of a disappointment to me, not because I think he’d make our team better, but because he’s a familiar face. It’s a bitter-sweet breakoff, but overall I think it’s for the best. The Wolves can now make sure their bench is absolutely held down at all times, it’ll never fly away with Andrei around.
In all honesty, I wish Kirilenko the best and hope to see him do well after a fantastic season for Moscow. I don’t think that spectacular play will translate over as well into the NBA, though. I think he’ll still be a great role-player, but no MVP (If he can stay healthy)
What are your thoughts? Do you think he’ll be more pesky as a Timberwolf than he was as a benchweight for the Jazz?
