Since Austin Croshere don’t get any run on his team, Ryan Gomes is the only former Friar in the NBA who gets any serious playing time. So, I am going to try to give a little Gomes update after each Timberwolves game.

Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night 97-70.  70 fucking points?  It just keeps getting worse and worse.  Kevin McHale is now 0-6 since taking over as coach.  Good move!

The poor Timberwolves fans who have had absolutely nothing to cheer about lately, gave Lebron James (game high 32 points) a STANDING FUCKING OVATION when he left the court.  If that doesn’t motivate you to try and win the next game, I don’t know what will.

Ryan Gomes had his second straight night to forget.  Although he played almost 35 minutes, he only registered 3 points on 1-6 shooting (1-3 from downtown).  He also only pulled in one rebound and committed two turnovers.  Gomes also added a blocked shot and 2 assists.

Through 25 games, here are Gomes’ averages.


30 minutes

10.1 Points

4.1 Rebounds

1.8 Assists


Minnesota is now 4-21 (2nd worst record in the NBA).  Their next game is Saturday night against Houston.
