Extremely important article for Timberwolves and Gopher fans and commenters here. If you notice, there are no other commenters to this article, because Wolves and Gopher fans do not seem to understand the importance of a defensive center to the success of a basketball team. Smith's lack of success in Big Ten play over six years here mainly resulted from his system, playing two forwards upfront instead of a true center and a forward. It appears new Gopher coach Pitino may make the same mistake, recently saying he likes the players on the floor to be interchangable, we will see next fall. The Wolves do the same, playing Pek, a big forward and playing Love or Williams at the 4 spot. I don't remember seeing Kareem guarding small players 25 feet from the basket.
