2016-17 Roster Review: Andrew Wiggins

How much did he improve this year? A deep dive into the numbers vs the eye test.

After the Lotto: The Big-Picture Questions

Okay, the draft is a month away and we now know the order. The Wolves will pick seventh, after the Celtics, Lakers, Sixers, Suns, Kings and Magic. Unless they trade the pick, of course. This post is not a deep dive into the 2017 class of prospects — that stuff will come later. For now, […]

2016-17 Roster Review: Ricky Rubio

Ricky Rubio had two seasons. There was the one that took place on the basketball floor. In some ways Rubio played the best ball of his career in 2016-17. He posted career highs in points per game, assists per game and field goal percentage. After some early struggles adjusting to new coach Tom Thibodeau, Rubio […]

2016-17 Roster Review: Gorgui Dieng

It took until Year 4 for me to really appreciate everything Gorgui Dieng brings to the table. I was happy that the Wolves landed him with a Draft night deal (with Utah) back in 2013, because he showed a soft jumper and defensive upside at Louisville, but I wasn’t really sure how it was going […]

2016-17 Roster Review: Shabazz Muhammad

Most any reflection on Shabazz Muhammad’s 2016-17 season can be laid to rest before it really gets started. “Bazzy,” who just finished his fourth season, is basically the same Bazzy we came to know in his first three seasons.

2016-17 Roster Review: Kris Dunn

Expectations, Expectations When the Timberwolves picked Kris Dunn 5th overall in last summer’s draft, he was the odds-on favorite to win the 2016-17 Rookie of the Year award.

2016-17 Roster Review: Nemanja Bjelica

Nemanja Bjelica had a rather peculiar season. The unassuming Serbian found himself careening between virtually unplayable and integral for the team’s success all season, with brief stops at nearly every stage in between. Inconsistency has defined Bjelica’s first two seasons in the NBA, something all inexperienced players are prone to, but most have the advantage […]
