On today’s show, Dane is joined by Britt Robson of The Athletic to discuss some of the details uncovered in Britt’s two-part, 75-minute one-on-one interview with Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch. The topics covered in the Britt-Finch Q+A are abundant, and we tried to hit on as many of those as possible.

  • Finch’s style of specific play calls vs. a free-flowing offensive emphasis — and how that differentiate’s from the previous style under Ryan Saunders (and Gersson Rosas)
  • Finch’s relationship with personnel vs. scheme — and how Finch freely admits the defensive plan will be different this season
  • A Scottie Pippen comparison for Jaden McDaniels from Finch
  • Finch’s acknowledgement of separate timelines and his job as a coach for navigating those two paths effectively
  • The Timberwolves “Core Four” of KAT, DLo, Ant and McDaniels
  • Britt’s heaping of praise on the Patrick Beverley trade: “Rosas best trade to date”
