As a die hard timberwolves fan I was excited for this season, but after losses to Milwaukee, Memphis, and now Cleveland...we are the same team. The flaws are significant.
Point # 5 is the most important!
1. Rubio is a great PG, but can't defend athletic guards and is awful defending the pick and roll. Tonight, Irving and Sessions (yes, the one that stole Glen's money) walked all over him.
2. We have 0 SG's. Even when JJ comes back, he is 5'10". The only hope is that when he and Rubio are on the court together JJ can guard the PG and Rubio can gaurd the 2 with a little more height.
3. Beasley is B-awful. Can't defend, can't shoot, can't concetrate, and can't stop feeling sorry for himself. Terrible to watch.
4. Derrick Williams will never shine with Love in the way. I'm not endorsing Love leaving, but man it's too bad Williams is a PF. We could really use a SG or 2 right now.
5. You could see it on loves face tonight on the bench...he's not interested in a long term contract...he just want's someone to show him the door out to a quality franchise.
We play the winless Wizards and Flip on Sunday...I don't think I can bear to watch us hand the Wiz their 1st win of the year.
