I'm really looking forward to following the T-Wolves this year. I anticipate many good things. Good luck Wolves.

tter than .500 ball with WES JOHNSON

manoliveSep. 29, 12 5:12 PM

We played better than .500 with Wes Johnson as our starting forward, Darko in the mix, Beasley and Barea injured, Pek injured, and much less talent. We're goimg to tear the league up. We have players not named Love that can actually hit the 3! We don't have any black holes like Beasley anymore. This team is soooo much better than last years team...Strap yourself in, it's going to be one wild ride!

Rambiss begged for more experienced players and management said no. He was seen as a lousy coach.Other than having Rubio for half a year Adelman did no better with this team other than a few more wins that occurred with Rubio in the lineup.Of course being an experienced coach Adleman was able to get the players he wanted.Did anyone actually think Taylor and Kahn would say no.The Wolves will be a better team with more experienced players and Adelman will be seen as a genius.I do not know if this is playoff team until I see them on the court especially without Rubio not at 100%.I will continue to watch this team for one reason and that is Rubio.

How can somebody say that the only reason he will watch this team is because of Rubio? Kevin Love is 23 years old and last season produced unheard of statistical numbers. He is going to get better. He is the key to this team's future success. Of course a healthy Rubio is important to this team, but I will watch this team with or without him because I am a "real" fan.

I'll miss Tolliver though.

There's nothing explosive or exciting about Love. Love does not make his teammates better. This Wolves season is about Rubio and Roy and their ability to stay on the court or not. If Rubio isn't healthy they will have no chance of making the playoffs. If Roy isn't healthy they'll have no chance of making a push in the playoffs. The key is Roys knees lasting 82+games.

Welcome to the state of basketball. Not hockey anymore.

Writers,What are players on other NBA teams saying about the new Timberwolves team? That would make for an interesting article.

Well here we go. It will be an interesting season. I just hope that all the changes were made for the good of the team. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
