The Wolves have a good core in place. They no longer need to find their core, they have Ant, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Jaden McDaniels. I would include Jarred Vanderbilt in that as well in large part because of how significantly he outperforms the dollar value of his contract, and D’Angelo Russell could be considered part of this group depending on who you’re talking to.
Dallas Mavericks vs. Golden State Warriors, Game 5 Two days removed from homering three times and driving in a career-high eight runs, San Francisco Giants slugger Joc Pederson rang in the Warriors' potential series closer. Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat, Game 5 Miami-based music producer and Heat fan DJ Khaled made waves in Game 5 of Miami's series against the 76ers. His efforts included giving head coach Erik Spoelstra a midgame shoulder massage and grabbing a Sixers turnover.
He will face a number of questions about key players ranging from Anthony Edwards, Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell and beyond, head coach Chris Finch, executive vice president of basketball operations Sachin Gupta and more. All are pertinent, all will have a major impact on the Timberwolves’ direction for years to come. Because while Minnesota took leaps forward this past season, simply maintaining this level of success would only be viewed as a failure.
