Landmark and Wesley Johnson

Wesley Johnson of the Minn T'Wolves showed well at the NBA All-Star Weekend

The 6’7″ Texan played college hoops with Syracuse, positioning himself as a dominator on the court and raising a lot of eyebrows as he led his team (and scoring 25 points) to beat favored North Carolina.  He continues to score in his first year in the NBA at the Minnesota Timberwolves, already scoring 24 points against the formidable New Orleans Hornets and then getting to show his stuff as a Rookie All-Star.  Playing off the bench, Johnson scored 25 and helped his team to beat the ranking All-Star Second Year team.

Rob Pelinka continues to guide his career and help him to be placed such that he will achieve notice and eventually ultimate success in the NBA.
