On today’s show, Dane reacts to a chaotic Minnesota Timberwolves loss to the New Orleans Pelicans and the leadership dynamic taking form in the Wolves’ locker room. We get into how the play of Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell — the team’s three best players — is beginning to shape the team’s identity. Topics include:

  • Anthony Edwards placing the blame on himself, KAT and DLo for the lack of rhythm the Wolves are playing with
  • Ant’s growing leadership role on the team
  • KAT again struggling with the refs
  • Finch searching for scoring and rebounding simultaneously, and thus far not finding it
  • Patrick Beverley’s role as not only a leader and defender but the importance of his shooting and rebounding on a team that needs it
  • Previewing Wednesday’s matchup against the surprisingly small Milwaukee Bucks
