The writer knows little about the NBA. The key to the Wolves this year is whether or not Adelman's team defense concept will overcome the worst defensive players in the NBA on one team at the 2 to 5 spots; Martin, Buddinger, Love and Pek. You can't always outscore every team. Krilienko is not around anymore to clean up the defense.

It is true that the Wolves have several players that while valuable offensive threats are below average defensively (Martin, Love, Pekovic, Williams, Barea, Mohammed). But they also have players on the roster that are above average defensively and can help improve the team defense, including Rubio, Brewer, Cunningham, Turiaf, and hopefully Gorgui Dieng. With Rubio and Brewer starting and Cunningham and Turiaf regularly rotating into the game Adelman should be able to figure out a way to improve the overall defense this year.
