Which Minnesota Timberwolf is master of his domain craft?

This is not the craft that Ricky is master at.

Close your eyes. Clear your mind. Breath in...now out. Say the following word in your mind's eye: Passing.

There's one thing you think of, right?

There are certainly better point guards but there isn't a better pure passer on planet earth. Ricky is the type of player who sees angles ahead of angles; moves ahead of moves; cuts ahead of cuts. He's a hockey assist and showtime pass wrapped up in one.


You can play the game for 20 years and not see the things Ricky sees on the court. And because of this, he's a master at his craft.
