The Wolves won their first pre-season game, beating the Lakers in London 111 – 92. Overall we looked pretty good, and the team is clearly much more energetic, athletic, interesting, and less sucktastic than seasons past. There’s potential for a solid season here folks. At least, something much more than the cesspool we’ve been wading through the last 3 years. I know, I know… it’s pre-season and Kobe only played 6 minutes. Still, baby steps.
Rather than regurgitate everything that’s already been posted about this game, I’m just going to link to the game thread in the TWolves Blog Forums, where there is a huge wealth of analysis, discussion, and game recappage going on. The discussion can be found HERE.
