We’re a couple of days into training camp, and with the likely roster at least somewhat finalized, I thought that it was time to take a look at the new edition of the Timberwolves.
That said, two days into training camp, we hardly know everything about the team. So, in the interest of brevity, we’re taking a page out of the book Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure , and taking a look at the Wolves roster – with six words per player.
Rashad McCants: Put up or shut up. Now.
Sebastian Telfair: Time to produce… or ride pine.
Randy Foye: Can he be successful at PG?
Craig Smith: Dude, grow a couple of inches.
Ryan Gomes: Important off-season re-signing… yet kinda forgotten.
Rodney Carney: Everyone says: why isn’t he better?
Brian Cardinal: I hated this guy at Purdue.
Corey Brewer: The sound of Brewer’s off-season: clank!
Al Jefferson: Oh, no! PLEASE, NOT THE KNEES!
Chris Richard: Well, there’s room in Sioux Falls.
Mike Miller: Biggest acquisition. So, Mike: No pressure!
Jason Collins: (This statement ruined by golf cart.)
Mark Madsen: HUSTLE RUN HUSTLE EFFORT FAIL BENCH
Kevin Love: Miller – no pressure, compared to Love.
Calvin Booth: Still tall. Still old. Still unproductive.
Kevin Ollie: Backup to the backup’s backup PG.
And of course, we also have the overall theme for the season: Better… But They’d Have To Be.
