Training camp drama has simply not been a concern for the Timberwolves this season. That’s not saying that they haven’t had have their fair share of issues, but we definitely aren’t seeing the usual horde of problems that we’re all too familiar with.
Last season, the Timberwolves came into the season stocked with talent, and exited the season with absolutely no production to show for it. The Timberwolves had Michael Beasley, Anthony Randolph, Wesley Johnson—guys that were supposedly big-time contributors.
It has been said before, but the reason that the T-Wolves couldn’t win all connected to the fact that the team wasn’t playing like a team.
They don’t have that problem this time. For the most part, the pieces all fit. Players are fitting in naturally with the team, and it has already begun to show early in the preseason.
All of that said, they still have several storylines that bear paying attention to.
