JZ, these are the kinds of stories many of us hunger for. Love to see you do stories on what other guys are doing to improve, get stronger, and so forth. Especially interested in what Rubio is doing in terms of becoming a better shooter. Perhaps this summer? Truly one of the most interesting and enjoyable sports stories I have ever read! Thank you.

Next year if Love leaves I would like to see Pek as PF and Dieng playing center....

Nice to see Pek do all the little things to help his game and stay healthy. Plus help his pocket book bulge. I hope the other players are taking advantage of these new techniques.

Pek working on his pecs...good story. Is Love working on his love handles? I can only hope Rubio is working on his jump shot.

lakeelmn99...it seems like Trey Burke also needs to work on his jump shot.

THis is good. I have been very critical of the wolves training staff for years. They have had far too many injuries for it to be all coincidence. Flip said he was going to try to change that but up until today I'd never heard what they had done. I HAVE noticed that people have been healthier so I guess its working. Kudos to Flip for making the change and Glen for dishing out the $$ to do it.
