Go Timberwolves!

Who cares about movies and DVDs. The Minnesota Timberwolves had their first home game last night without KG. It was a preseason game against the Pacers. Although they lost, it was pretty obvious that Randy Wittman is still trying to figure out how to best play this team of mostly young newcomers. And all in all, they didn't look half-bad with Al Jefferson knocking out some amazing plays. The frontcourt is looking very strong with Al Jefferson, Craig Smith, Ryan Gomes, Theo Ratliff, Gerald Green and Corey Brewer, but the backcourt with Sebastian Telfair and Randy Foye still out, is lacking. We need more there than Ricky Davis and Marco Jaric.

Overall, I am excited about this new start for the T-wolves. Since the beginning the Wolves were defined by KG, and more recently let down by the expectations. All expectations are gone, and these guys actually have a chance to build a team. It may not be a winning season for the Wolves, but I think it will be a fun one.
