On today’s podcast, Britt Robson of The Athletic joins the show to discuss the Minnesota Timberwolves’ downward spiral that has followed their explosion in Phoenix. A week that began with a loss to the Thunder at home, a blowout against the Mavericks, a standing pat trade deadline, a win that felt like a loss against the Rockets, and a blowout against the Rockets in the rematch. We discuss:

  • Deflating losses that point back to questions about leadership
  • How the Wolves could pivot off of their core of Towns, Russell, Edwards and Beasley if that is deemed necessary
  • Jaden McDaniels and the future of the power forward position
  • A bottom of the league rampant with tanking and the Wolves mired in the mix of it
  • Monday’s opponent, the Brooklyn Nets, and their championship odds
  • Britt’s three MVP candidates versus Dane’s three MVP candidates
