The Minnesota Timberwolves would have been a playoff team this year. I really believe that. In fact, they could have gone on a playoff run.
Kevin Love is the best power forward in the game. Ricky Rubio is establishing himself as not only a sublime passer, but also an outstanding team leader. Derrick Williams has found his game. You need a crane to move Nikola Pekovic. Alexey Shved was a pleasant surprise.
And think if Minnesota had had Brandon Roy and Chase Budinger hoisting up threes.
It would have been sweet!
But, of course, the team suffered devastating injury after devastating injury, and we’re only left to wonder what could have been.
