Minnesota Timberwolves forward Adreian Payne continues to show growth and progress in NBA



EAST LANSING — Adreian Payne is showing the same sort of improvement as an NBA player as he did at Michigan State, slowly and steadily expanding his game and efficiency.

"We know it can take a little time, but he's really making progress,'' Spartans coach Tom Izzo said. "Adreian came back and spent quite a bit of time here after the season, and I think he looks great. His body is getting bigger, and while he still has work to do on his game, he's improving and I think has a chance to be special.''

The 6-foot-10, 245-pound Payne, known for his inordinate athleticism, said that's what he aims to prove this offseason.

"I'm just trying to prove myself to the coaches," Payne told the Minneapolis Star Tribune, "and just dominate.''

As much as Appling gets some crap for not getting to a Final Four (some of it deservedly so since he had some decent seeds to work with when he wasn't injured; some of it not in his final year), I liked seeing how hard he took not making the Final Four.

It meant the passion was there and that drive to prove people wrong very well might have sparked him to work as hard as he has and become an NBA player. Kudos to him.

I hope it goes well, he's probably my favorite Spartan hoopster of the last 10 years or so.

So glad Appling achieved his dream of playing in the league. Felt so bad for him, watching how he couldn't bounce back from the injury. Was looking to have a beast of a season that year.

Doing a bad job of trying to find a second comment to put here since I accidentally posted twice.

Looks like Payne is fitting in well in Minny.

Hope Alan Anderson does well with my Wizards.

Contracts are crazy with the impending jump in the cap thanks to the TV deal.

Report: Ex-Spartan Travis Trice signs with Knicks


Former Michigan State guard Travis Trice has signed a partially guaranteed one-year deal with the New York Knicks, Yahoo.com reported today.
Trice, the 6-0 guard whose clutch play helped carry the Spartans to the Final Four in Indianapolis in April, went undrafted in June after playing for Miami's NBA summer league team in Orlando, Fla.

I've always thought he could do well in the triangle offense as Craig Hodges type PG. Could be a good fit if the Knicks if the triangle is what they run (I didn't see any Knicks games last season).

Got in a little the first game.  Dressed out both nights.

KG most likely won't play beyond this season.  That should open up some minutes, and I'm pretty sure the T Wolves picked up his option year already.

Yea you are right, already picked up his option, I missed that.

I don't always think straight +/- is a great indicator for a basketball game, but Draymond putting up a +41 in 27 minutes to help build a 40 point lead is INSANE. Memphis is a decent team and GS absolutely destroyed them.
Also went for 11 pts, 9 rebounds, 8 assists, and 3 blocks. Easy triple double if they actually had to play him in the 4th quarter.

It's a glitch in the search here, for some reason it hates words shorter than 4-5 letters. I've had that happen to me more than once too.
