Today one of the lead stories on ESPN's NBA coverage is an article entitled What We're Most Excited About In '11-12
The article interviews 5 national NBA bloggers and asks them what they are looking forward to most for the 2011-2012 NBA season. The surprising result? 4 of the 5 bloggers identified themes regarding the Timberwolves with 3 of the 5 specifically mentioning the Wolves as 1 of their top 5 stories.
Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN says "the Wolves have the potential to be a place you land on a busy League Pass night." as he discusses them as his #4 thing he's looking forward to.
Rob Peterson of Hardwood Paroxysm mentions "Love ... should be the focal point of Adelman's offense and the fulcrum for what could be an exciting young team." and lists the Wolves as his #3 storylilne
Zach Harper of Daily Dime Live says "First time in a long time the Wolves could matter for good reasons." and lists the team as the #1 thing he is looking forward to.
I have no idea if the team is going to do much this year but it's quite interesting that so many national NBA writers are taking notice and actually "excited" about the Wolves for the coming year.
