Now a third of the way into the Minnesota Timberwolves’ season, Karl-Anthony Towns is back, and the season finally feels like it is beginning. Britt Robson of The Athletic joins the pod today to discuss the following topics and more:
- Karl-Anthony Towns is back
- What is ‘stealth tanking’? We’ve seen many iterations of tanking over the course of the Timberwolves’ existence. And this version — if it is, in fact, a form of tanking — is perhaps the most confounding. If they have not been prioritizing winning over all else, how did they do it, and will that change now that KAT has returned?
- Britt and I disagree on the potential of the KAT and D’Angelo Russell pick and roll pairing.
- In advance of Anthony Edwards and LaMelo Ball squaring off for the first time, we discuss the ways in which the two are being developed — and the environments they are being developed in.
