On today’s show, Dane is back with a takeaways from the Minnesota Timberwolves preseason opener against the New Orleans Pelicans. Any ideas that the Wolves are entering the season with bad vibes after firing their President of Basketball Operations were squashed with a pretty inspired effort from Anthony Edwards, D’Angelo Russell, Karl-Anthony Towns and the rest of the Wolves. Topics include:

  • Ant’s defense, of all things, shining in preseason opener, and what impact that could have
  • Starting Josh Okogie at power forward, and what we can takeaway from Chris Finch’s rotations
  • Being back at Target Center + witnessing Russell grow into the role of being a team leader, on and off the court
  • A lesser offensive burden for KAT, but a responsibility to be the team’s defensive tentpole and best defensive rebounder
  • Not seeing any bad vibes
