Well, Its that time of year where its time to think about anything but our current team.
About the only thing that we have to look forward to going into next season is getting Ricky Rubio in a Wolves uni. I know his numbers haven't been great in Europe, but there's still no doubting that he's a great prospect who could actually play some defense at the PG position, while passing, yes that's the opposite of what Jonny Flynn does, the basketball to people who can score.
For those out there who think Rambis is getting fired, keep dreaming. Papa Glen and Mr. Kahn are not going to bail on him just yet. He'll have one more year to prove that he can put a team together, so thus is the question; If Rubio were playing with our current team, how much better would we be?
I think he could have made the difference for at least 6 wins or so. At this point BFD, the real problems lie in our team defense. Its atrocious. The TOs are bad too, but those are essentially easy to fix. Team defense is hard to fix and our guys seem to be picking it up very slowly. Beasley and Love get destroyed on defense, and our current PGs are never going to be good at it. Luke will be a great guy off the bench who can score and handle the ball. Rubio is going to be the real facilitator though. A PG we can actually run our offense through.
All in all, I'm still hopeful that this was the last true bottom feeder year for us. We have a lot to fix and we really could use a few more vets on our team, but we have a talented core of players. If they can figure out the team concept I don't see any reason why we can't contend for the playoffs once Rubio is here.
What do you guys think?
