Default Preseason Games;Good or Bad?

Two games really does not give a good view of what we have. But I am loving our fight. I like how the Bucks just gave us the game by missing free throws. But I will take these two games and look forward to a great season of Timberwolves basketball.

I thought the first game looked like we were playing great defense and it seemed like our chemistry was good. Then the second game seemed like we were a half ass team. Maybe Rubio and Barea make a difference. Rubio isn't starting during the beginning of the season. Ridnour is starting, but I hope Rubio and Barea get their share of minutes.

Beasley looks a lot different this year. The first game he played great. The second he fell off. This is supposed to be Beasley's year to bring it to the next level and the same goes for Love. We have a bunch of good young talent, but how far we go will still rely mostly on how much Love and Beasley have improved. We can't expect our 1st and 2nd year players to turn into stars overnight, but it would be nice if it happened.

i think two years from now twolves would be back in the playoff mix. just have to have a solid center and team chemistry twolves maybe like portland 4 years ago... i think they will can get .500 win or maybe more. also rick adelman is a very good coach.. something that minny has lost since loosing saunders. so minny's future is looking good.

just gotta start trading some forwards

Ridnour and Randolph for a good backup C who can challenge Darko for the starting spot.

We already have Rubio and Barea and Lee showed that he will be a good player, I say we trade Ridnour. Randolph doesn't look like he will get many minutes under Adelman so may as well trade him also.

I believe we had a good off-season.
