Each season in Minnesota is built on hope and optimism towards the future, but this one was supposed to be different. This was the year these Timberwolves were supposed to finally break through and end the playoff drought that has plagued them since Kevin Garnett left.
The team wrapped up another subpar season tonight with a win at San Antonio to finish the season at 31-51. The end result was not pretty, but given all the adversity this team has had to overcome, 31 wins is nothing to scoff at.
If this team is finally going to make the improvements that fans are clamoring for, it needs some fine tuning along with the fortune of good health for once.
The T-Wolves were arguably a torn ACL and some knuckle push ups away from being legitimate threats in the playoffs this year. That being said, there is nowhere to move but forward. Minnesota has a solid foundation on which to build upon and has a few things to take care of this offseason to assure that it wins much more than 31 games next season.
