The Minnesota Timberwolves have got a lot of work to do, but here are five things that they can zero in on this offseason. We obviously touch on Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio, but also suggest a coaching change that you might not have considered.
This is obviously crucial to their future. If Love leaves for the sunny shores of Baja California, then the Wolves will be in a tight spot. Much like George Clooney's character in "O' Brother Where Art Though", they would have difficulty finding their way out of that burning barn without a little extra help.
It has been tough to watch this season. His passing always impresses, and I love when he is totally locked in defensively. He can really stuff the stat sheet, but it is just an issue when the other team is begging you to shoot the ball.
He does not appear to be connecting to the younger players anymore, and it might be time to try a different approach. It would also not surprise me to see Flip coach this team one day. Something tells me K. Love would be just fine with having Kevin Garnett's old coach in his corner.
Two words for you. Doug McDermott. Can you say Wally World 2.0? Love and McDermott would go together like ham and mayo. They would be the whitest, but best jump shooting bash brothers in the game's modern era. Let's pray that McDermott falls to them in the draft.
It might be time. Adelman has not been great with this group if we are going to be totally honest. There have been issues between teammates, and we all know that this is probably not a playoff team. It might be time for them to hear a new voice.
