Minnesota Timberwolves remain as a Toyota.
The Wolves didn’t do much in the 2009-2010 season. They kept losing and lost Al Jefferson, too. Point guard Jonny Flynn had the chance to solidify the position for years to come, but made the fan base look forward to Ricky Rubio’s arrival. He had a solid rookie season with 13.5 points and 4.4 assists. That’s fine and dandy although the Wolves are looking for a star. They are not looking for fine and dandy.
The Wolves were so terrible that Al Jefferson said that it was “like moving from a Toyota to a Bentley” after he bolted to Utah. Shots fired. President of basketball operations, David Kahn, made matters worse during a summer league game commentating with Chris Webber. I wonder if he has some kind of vision. Someone grab the microphone away from him next time because it’s not a pretty sight.
Their win-loss record was 15-67.
Kevin Love: The lone bright spot.
Michael Beasley: The Problem Child.
Wesley Johnson: Next Pippen?
WTF is going on here? This seems like David Kahn loves to acquire talent, but doesn’t know how players mesh with each other. There are too many point guards and too many power forwards. This roster is a hot mess. Kevin Love cannot be playing center. That’s not his true position and he is going to be injured a lot. The front office will have to figure out what to do with Flynn in the future since he is not a pass first playmaking point guard. With Love, Beasley, and Johnson as offensive weapons, it would be a damn shame if the point guard cannot take advantage of that.
Final verdict: Team barely improves. They will remain the worst team in the NBA for 2010-2011. Under 20 wins. Where are you Ricky Rubio?
