The Minnesota Timberwolves' fanbase has to be ecstatic about this offseason.
After Kevin Love told Yahoo! Sports that his patience was not high and that he wants to win (via ESPN), the Minnesota front office has responded with an offseason that shouts, "championship!"
Rubio was done for the season and the Timberwolves went into free-fall. Without Rubio, the team did not have the same excitement and missed the playoffs.
While Rubio has been rehabbing and Kevin Love has been winning Olympic gold, Minnesota did some house cleaning and added some shiny pieces that will help Love add another trophy to his case.
Gone is the deep stable of forwards in Michael Beasley, Wesley Johnson and Anthony Randolph, along with center Darko Milicic.
Here to win are SG/SF Chase Budinger, center Greg Stiemsma and the following trio that will return Minnesota to respectability and glory.
