Hello all my fellow canis hoopus members, I hope you are all as frustrated as I am that it looks like the timberwolves are gonna go another year not making the playoffs (cue the tears). Yeah we can't win a close game for shit, and when we seem to take two steps forward we never take the third but I have realy been trying to figure out why we are where we are. And I think I know, this timberwolves team with the exception of brewer, love and ricky, has no passion to the point where they will do anything to win a game or at least it seems like that. And they won't be able to make the playoffs or become a team that consistently wins until they have that passion and desire. I think since they lack this passion, it's a big part of why they lose so many close games down the stretch. It's just frustrating to me because as a wolves fan I want Kevin love to stay and if I were him with his talent it'd be hard to stay on a team that never goes anywhere. Yes, u could argue we aren't that deep and could have a better roster but if we win maybe 6 more of those close games and the suns didn't suprise everyone, we are still in great continention for a final playoff spot.
Now. Onto Shabazz. I'm not here to argue about how he is a bust or isn't or whatever. I think if adelman have him as much minutes earlier in the season as he got now he wouldn't have been as productive and not even close to it. I think he really can develop into a key contributor on this team next year. He has shown that he can score, he's always been able to and his defense is average at best but will get better. He has shot pretty well from mid range and has a nact for getting offensive rebounds. When he comes into the game he brings energy, and that desire to win that the 2nd unit especially on the wolves lacks. I love watching him progress as a player and really think he can be a good player on this wolves team next year. Plus he is very athletic and finishes really strong around the rim.
Thanks for reading and let me know what you think! Go wolves!!
