Monday night was the return of D’Angelo Russell to the Minnesota Timberwolves after a two-month knee injury. The news came out of nowhere, and just before we found out that Malik Beasley will be out for the next 4-6 weeks with a hamstring injury. On today’s pod, we focus on how the new-look Wolves look and fared with DLo back in the rotation and then dug into Anthony Edwards’ case for Rookie of the Year over Tyrese Haliburton.
- Russell playing almost exclusively alongside another point guard (Ricky Rubio or Jordan McLaughlin) and the importance of finding “Off-Ball DLo”
- The impact of how Russell is used on Edwards
- What does Edwards need to do the rest of the season to win Rookie of the Year over Haliburton?
- How many GMs would take Haliburton over Edwards if we re-drafted the 2020 class today?
