Tonight vs. Milwaukee

The news that, already in just this second preseason game, we will not get to see Ricky Rubio and J.J. Berea was hard on me. I'm a fan, anticipation is half the fun, and my anticipation had been severely deflated. But I still want to watch and be excited so I began to list a few things I would like to see tonight. I'd like to see some more of Derek Williams putting the ball on the floor and I'd like to see him getting the ball in the low post in one on one situations. I'd like to see Kevin Love hitting Michael Beasley cutting to the basket, and a few plays later I'd like to see Beas returning the favor. I'd like to see Malcolm Lee play some suffocating defense on Brandon Jennings. I'd like to see Luke Ridnour make the extra pass and see the recipient point at him in recognition afterwards. I'd like to see Wes Johnson show a little 'Corey Brewer like' energy. I'd like to see Anthony Randolf work hard, move his feet, and not go up in the air too soon on defense. I'd like to see Pek take a charge and get the call. I want to see the guys on the bench loving the game. I'd like to see some 'Lynx like' execution and chemistry. Because I'd like to see these Wolves become melded into a team of youthful energy, contagious enthusiasm, and burgeoning confidence. Down the road I don't want to see the Wolves beat the Heat at their own game or beat the Mavs at theirs, but I want to see the Heat, Mavs, and others have to beat the Wolves at the Wolves game; and I want that to become ever more increasingly difficult. As fans I think we were very lucky last year to get to see something in Kevin Love's play that few have seen in a long time, and I think this year watching Ricky Rubio will be another truly unique experience. If, through the inevitable highs and lows, it all does start to come together and build a winning chemistry, Canis Hoopus land could be very heady place. What would you like to see tonight?
