Add:

Roy, Budinger, Stiemsma, Cunningham, Kirilenko, Shved.

Lose:

Darko, Webster, Wes, Ellington, Beasley, Randolph.
It's basically the most heavily Caucasian team in the league. I dig it.

Whatever anyone wants to say, they are going to be a good team, IMO.

1 - Rubio
2 - Roy
3 - AK-47
4 - Love
5 - Pek

Is the all healthy starting 5 i assume? With Ridnour/Barrea holding down the point while Ricky is still hurt?

I doubt Roy's knees will let him start every game. He'll be a great option off the bench but I would be very wary about destroying his legs.

Wolves should be fun to watch next season. If nothing else Rubio is one of the most fun players to watch in all of pro sports. Was at the Heat game last season and it was a blast.

Definitely. Rubio was fun to watch. I watched more Wolves than Wild last year.

I watched the Wolves as much as I could as well...but at the same time a 'boring' hockey game is still 10 times more exciting than a bball one. At least in my opinion.

Me, too. Its just that I rarely got Wild games or was rarely around to watch them. Although, whenever Rubio was on the court, I did pay attention a lot more.

Always got me when he caught his own teammates off guard. Pretty hilarious.

Such a shame for both Rubio and Spain that he can't be a weapon for them at the Olympics this coming week.

Especially with the smack talking, mutual respect-based competition he has going on with Kobe Bryant. Would've loved to see a Rubio pass go through Kobe's legs and the reaction that followed.

The thing about Rubio is he has potential to transcend the sport. You don't have to be a fan of the sport to have fun watching him play. There are simply not many players that have that sort of skill set.

I'm a huge Wild fan and I attend more Wild games then Wolves game but if you haven't seen that kid play you should.

I'm really confused to how this team is going to be competetive.
1) Kahn has screwed up just about every draft, besides for Rubio/Love
2) We got nothing for KG.
3) We got nothing for Jefferson.

Yet we are still on the verge of the playoffs. How?

Kahn didn't draft Love. Jefferson basically had negative value. He is a blackhole on offense and can't play D. Players are starting to want to come here to play with Love and Rubio, and for Adelman.

I'm not an NBA fan at all, but the TWolves are playing the Pistons here in Winnipeg for an exhibition game. Seriously considering going.

I've only been to one other NBA game and it was the Wolves vs the Nuggets at the Target Center. The Wolves got hammered........lol

You dont need depth in basketball. Look at the Heat. They didn't win because of depth. They won because the have 2 superstars and one great player.

*Edit* Well James is more then a superstar. He is more of a generational talent but I stand by my point.

I'm just stating that although we lost a great player in KG and our best player at the time(Jefferson) and have virtually nothing left from those trades. And have done some terrible drafting, yet we are still a good and improving team.

We got Jefferson from the KG deal. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2954127

We actually did alright when that pretentious ***** KG split and dissed us in the ensuing year publicly. Otherwise, I agree, Kahn better make us a winner, and quick or needs to go.

Yeah, it's pretty low to publicly rip on your old team. But, can you blame him? He gave 110% every game out there on bad teams. Except for the one or two seasons we had Spreewell and Cassel.

Yes, he tried to be "the King" here and rode out the storm, unlike "The King" who made a spectacle and basically destroyed his old team and flew the coup to a team stacked. Similar though in that Boston was pretty much a contender.
