Need a distraction? Britt Robson of The Athletic joins the pod to discuss a set of storylines from this Minnesota Timberwolves season that were not anticipated at the year’s onset, including:
- Why the Jarred Vanderbilt infatuation feels justified. What is his role once Josh Okogie returns? What about when Karl-Anthony Towns returns?
- How temporary is the brokenness of the Timberwolves rotations
- The trappings of the D’Angelo Russell and Ricky Rubio pairing. What does Rubio need to do to get going?
- Can Juancho Hernangomez sustain this uptick? Does Juancho still start once Okogie returns?
- Relitigating the Andrew Wiggins D’Angelo Russell trade. The unfortunate similarities between Wiggins and Russell.
- The 19 year-old Anthony Edwards experience. Offensive flashes that suggest profound upside, and defensive lapses that temper expectations. How Edwards is another piece of the “all-in on offense” roster construct.
