T Wolves - my new 2nd Team?
Loved watching Rubio in his rookie year in the NBA and was disappointed for him and the game when he went down with his knee.
Since his return, I've been watching a little more of the T Wolves and am coming to really like the team they've put together and the grumpy Alderman prancing the sidelines.
Love the fact they've got a number of internationals in there, but have also noticed that the whole team is almost white!! I cannot recall a more white NBA team ever (9 players total)!?! I know a few Utah Jazz teams come close in the late nineties (Stockton, Hornaceck, Foster, Oostertag etc), but here is what the T Wolves have with an asterick next to them if they're international:
That only leaves: Derrick Williams, Dante Cunningham, Malcolm Lee and Brandon Roy who I think has retired again?
I really enjoy seeing how hard and the non-fuss way Pekovic goes about it, and the overall team basketball they play. I think they're a fun team to watch and will be interested to see as Rubio's minutes increase, how the team goes in adjusting to him, as well as Budinger to come back in and Love to get back playing regularly. They're currently 13-11...
