Pieces to Build With

David Kahn's plan seems to be right now (although it's all still very fluid) that they will start building toward a playoff team with the roster they have now (along with Rubio of course).  I think we can all agree that in the future, when the Wolves finally do make that playoffs that it will not be with that identical roster.  That being said I would hope that we have at least some of those pieces in place.  What do you think those pieces are? 

I would contend that as of right now it seems to be that when we make the playoffs the team will consist of at least Rubio (if he pans out as a legit NBA PG) and Love (if he continues to grow in skill).  That's "2 if's" already!  It seems that we trust in those "if's" a lot as wolves fans!  That however, is the topic for another post.  Other than those two it seems like it would take even bigger if's for some of the other guys to be legit contributors on our playoff team.  This would be Beasley being more Batman and less Robin, Wes fulfilling Dick Vitale's prediction of ROY and then continuing to get better, Darko finally realizing his potential, or some of our other merry men rising up to Robin Hood status (or at least Friar Tuck status).

This being the case it's no wonder why the Wolves don't need to update their store.  Rubio hasn't come yet, and the other guys who are going to star aren't here yet (They will probably continue to sell KLove jerseys in hopes that ChuckD will finally come around).  Anyone else who buys any of the other jerseys may very well be like the guys sporting the Tavaris Jackson's #7.  In other words he used to be the plan, but then we got this other guy to come play for us.

Am I misreading this or is there any jersey really worth buying this time of year?
