On today’s episode, Jace Frederick of the Pioneer Press joins the show as the Minnesota Timberwolves begin training camp.

  • We react to the Ricky Rubio and Ed Davis introductory press conference, attempting to glean clues on what both Davis and Rubio’s roles may be this season. What position do they play? Who do they play with? How many minutes do they play?
  • Additionally, we use the Vegas win total over/unders to have a conversation about where the Timberwolves might finish in the Western Conference. Do they exceed the 30 wins (34 in an 82-game season) Vegas has set the line at? Better or worse than 11th in the conference? What are the odds they finish in the top-10, earning a playoff spot in this season’s expanded playoff format?
