Minnesota Timberwolves Front Office
In the Cavs and the Clippers, we're watching two squads who know they're good but also know they're going to have to be even better this season if they want to challenge the Warriors. All signs are positive so far and perhaps it's due to their continuity.
How Tom Thibodeau will use Karl-Anthony Towns on offense, finding a backcourt partner for Russell Westbrook, Evan Turner's fit with Portland, Quin Snyder's false ation offense and whether one of Denver's young guards will emerge as a foundational piece.
The Wolves' rise from an intriguing young collective into one with teeth will be unsteady and hard and painful. Tom Thibodeau is apt to appreciate this, he has always been more obsessed with the grind of his craft than its capacity for glory.
