Wolves rookie Brown gets taste of NBA, preseason style
Not many people say this about a Wednesday night in Toronto in October, but Timberwolves rookie guard Lorenzo Brown promised he was sincere about those 17 minutes he played at the end of a 101-89 preseason victory over the Raptors.
“Best time of my life,” he said. “Most definitely.”
OK, so he’s only 23 years old and given he’s a rookie, he might be a little susceptible to hyperbole but …
There he was on a professional stage for the first time, disrupting an honest-to-goodness NBA opponent with a defensive presence that helped the Wolves limit Toronto to only 30 second-half points after they allowed 37 points in the second quarter alone.
