3 Ways the Timberwolves Will Stay Afloat Sans Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love
Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been impressive over the first three games of the season. Going 2-1 to start the season off is admirable, especially considering just how revamped the roster is compared to last season.

The players have played very comfortably with each other—which is a huge step forward from last season when the team virtually fell apart without Ricky Rubio and/or Kevin Love on the floor.

The upgrades have already begun to pay massive dividends. Veteran Andrei Kirilenko has shown why the Wolves made a point of pursuing him, and rookie Alexey Shved is already proving that he belongs in the NBA.

The early success of the team makes one wonder just how good the Wolves are going to be with their star players Love and Rubio on the court.

For now, though, focusing on the areas that will keep the Wolves alive until the stars come back will be the trick. With a roster as competent as the one that the T-Wolves have put together, I’m going to review the ways that will make the team a bona fide success.
