Defense, Defense, Defense!!! I like the fact that the wolves are playing good team defense! I hope that continues when the regular season begins...if we can go .500 until Love gets back we should be in good shape to make the playoffs! I am very excited about the upcoming season! Go Wolves!!!!

It's great to see how well Budinger is playing. 9 for 13 in the last two games from 3 pt. range. If Wes Johnson had come even close to that the Wolves would have been ecstatic. Wes probably would have hit 2 of 13 in that span. A lot of it will come down to match ups for that first month when we are down Love & Rubio, but I'm looking forward to watching a lot of BB on FSN this season!

We wouldn't be anywhere without Adelman. Also, I think people need to give some credit to Kahn.

Great to see you at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Jerry. Thanks for taking the time at half time to chat with me. The Wolves looked great tonight, despite the lack of Rubio and Ridnour at the point. Pek was a force down low. Cheers from the biggest T-Wolves fan in Green Bay.

Wolves absolutely own the cheesefaces. Minnesota beats Milwaukee again, it never gets old kicking around the wi teams.

Great to see team basketball. Lexi showed why he was referred to as the Russian Rubio. Unselfish play wins games, something the Wolves lacked since, oh, forever. This will be the best coached team we;ve ever had, concentrating on fundamentals like defense and sharing the ball. We have superstars, we have role players, we have a mix of veterans and youth, and we have guys that will get down and do the dirty work, like take charges. This will be a fun team to watch. I've been waiting sinc the last strike shortened season, and now we're only a week away. Rick should consider starting Budinger. He's clearly t-9p0 nj he best shooter on the team. Play your best horses and lets win!!!

as a fan I am HAPPY! Even without Rubio and Love this Twolves team's core players would still rank in top five for past wolves lineups! (or higher) I think they can be above .500 when Love and Rubio return. Gonna be a fun year. (finally!)

I just hope that Love and Rubio return to a healthy team, so we can see them all together for a few months.
