From the Star Tribune: Kevin Love's postcard from Europe

This team is way above where we were this time last year, and I'm not just saying that. You can already see that we're going to be a much more athletic team. And we're all the same age, which is great. At dinner or on the bus, we're all together, joking and laughing together. When it's time to get down to business, we're all going to be on the same page. We all want to win.

I hate telling people to have patience because it's been tough the past couple seasons. But give this group some time and we can make some things happen.


From Jerry Zgoda/Star Tribune:

And yet, a man responsible for helping NBA teams find, draft or otherwise acquire Dirk Nowitzki, Mehmet Okur, Zeljko Rebraca, Carlos Delfino and, yes, Darko Milicic finds himself with an international network of contacts so vast he needs a special laptop program to transfer all the names and numbers when he gets a new cell phone because his wireless provider can't do it swiftly enough.

"That's the mystery that you guys in Minnesota are going to have find out," Dumars said when asked how Ronzone has become one of the NBA's most notable international scouts without learning a second language. "I've been to countries all over the world and invariably he knows people in every single place. It's the damnedest thing: People who can barely speak English and they all know Tony."

You can attribute that to a quality that Dallas General Manager Donnie Nelson -- who helped hire Ronzone to his first NBA job in a 10-minute meeting in 1998 -- once termed "unembarrassable." Wolves boss David Kahn simply calls Ronzone "irrepressibly optimistic and upbeat" and credits that as one reason he hired Ronzone last spring in a move he said he would have made whether Fred Hoiberg left for Iowa State's head-coaching job or not.
