Default Official 2013-2014 Minnesota Timberwolves Thread!

Season is just 2 days away!

I think that if the Wolves can stay healthy, they will go 50-32 on the year. They have all of the talent in the world to do that and compete with every team in the NBA. I mean, with a roster like this, how can't you?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PG-Ricky Rubio/JJ Barea/AJ Price
SG-Kevin Martin/Alexey Shved/Shabazz Muhammed
SF-Derrick Williams/Corey Brewer/Robbie Hummel/Chase Budinger(inj)
PF-Kevin Love/Dante Cunningham
C-Nikola Pekovic/Ronny Turiaf/Gorgui Deng

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They've already said that they are leaning towards going with the big man lineup with Derrick Williams at the 3, thats why I have him in there starting, but that could change. I wouldn't mind seeing Brewer in the starting lineup for that lockdown defense he can bring to the table. But I like our depth and the versatility of players being able to play in different positions.

I think we added a nice piece in Kevin Martin, who is a player who excels in the Adelman system. I think that this is a team that others should be worried about if they can stay healthy. They have a very strong base with a lot of depth and a good supporting cast.

So here is to a entertaining season! Lets go WOLVES!

Wolves will definitely be making the playoffs this year, possibly even as high as a 5-6 seed.

I was there for his first game back last year after his injury. He had this play where he passed behind his back and between the legs of the defender to someone for a dunk. I looked on Youtube for it but didn't see it. That was probably the best pass I've ever seen.

I bought some courtside seats to see Rubio when he and the Wolves are in town.

I'm pretty upset Shabazz didn't see more time this preseason, I hope it isn't an indicator of his PT during the season, especially with Budinger out. They are a 50 win team this year if they can stay healthy, but Pek and Love seem to have a lot of of tick tack injuries that keep them out of games during the season (Obviously Love had bigger injury issues last year but otherwise)

SHOULD? come on man

if the T Wolves make the playoffs, it'll be a big success

they should be better this year then in previous years, but to say they "should" win a round in the playoffs is crazy

I'll take that underestimation as a compliment. The Wolves will be sure to prove you wrong

FSN is a must. Im always watching Timberwolves and Twins games, I'd die without it.

Wife and I punted cable...which has worked fine EXCEPT for live sports. Twins have been atrocious so no loss there, but Wolves hurt. Catch games on 29 whenever possible.

Ugly forth quarter but a big shot by Love. I'll take it though, a win is a win no matter how you get it!

I was a little surprised that Derrick Williams did not find his way onto the court tonight

Love was great
Brewers energy was fantastic
Pek sat too long in the 4th, was huge in OT

Not a pretty game but some positives to take away from it.

Can't watch the game because I live in Phoenix :/. Is it bad that I want us to tank so we can get a good pick in this LOADED draft coming up? I feel guilty about it wanting the T-Wolves to suck one more year and THEN make the playoffs..Any chance we can make the playoffs and still get a good spot in the draft?

Not sure if true or not, but I did hear that he didn't play because he was sick

Forgot to post in this last night after that dominating win! A nice one too, holding Durant to 13 points was huge, especially since he has always had monster games against us! I think he had averaged around 27 a game against us in his career so holding him to 13 was a big help in the win.

I actually liked what I saw out of Derrick Williams last night too! He had a solid game and really stood out to me! Too bad none of the rooks could get in the box score and they looked pretty out of it to me, but it'll come with time.

Anyways, its nice to say we are 2-0 right now and lets hope we can keep this rolling!
