Britt Robson of The Athletic joins the pod following consecutive losses to Andrew Wiggins and the Golden State Warriors. We discuss the shine Wiggins has gathered this season — both what is deserved and what still remains questionable. From there, we discuss the optics of the Wiggins-for-DLo trade, now ten days before its one-year anniversary.
The second half of the show moves on from Wiggins (so skip ahead if you can’t stand another minute of him) and into Anthony Edwards. Why the Zach LaVine comparison does and does not work for Edwards. We also discuss how the Minnesota Timberwolves’ ideological process is beginning to crumble both in roster construction and in terms of system in KAT’s absence, noting Josh Okogie as a key example. We also do some Naz Reid praise and ask if Reid is this roster’s best forward even without ever having played the position. And we close with the question of if this is the worst team the Wolves have ever had from a watch-ability standpoint.
