Roster Review: Tayshaun Prince

tayshaun-prince

I’m listening to Radiohead and thinking about Tayshaun Prince. A Moon Shaped Pool is Radiohead’s ninth album and it arrived last Sunday, the most Radiohead day of the week possible to release an album.

Damjan Rudez averaged the fewest minutes per game on the Minnesota Timberwolves this past season, and played the third fewest total minutes. He averaged the fewest points per game; he averaged the fewest steals per game; he averaged the fewest assists per game.
