HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — We’re a little embarrassed to admit it, but we can’t take our eyes off of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Between the long-awaited arrival of Ricky Rubio, the dynamic frontocurt duo of Kevin Love and Michael Beasley, the arrival of newcomer Derrick Williams and the always entertaining words and actions of general manager David Kahn, the Timberwolves make it hard to ignore them.
(We realize that stalking a cellar dweller in the NBA is akin to being hooked on trashy reality TV, but we can’t help it.)
Now that we have some footage of the old and new faces on the floor together, a gift from our main man Jonah Ballow and his crew at Timberwolves.com, we’re even more intrigued:
The only remaining question is whether or not all this promise translates into something concrete on the court, and more importantly in the win-loss column. With just 32 wins in the past two seasons, we need something a bit more substantial in that category to justify all of this hype.
