Minnesota Timberwolves Front Office
While making a living by scoring with your back to the basket isn't going to work for the vast majority of young big men coming into the league, the rules that apply to the 99 percent don't necessarily hold true for the 1 percent. Jahlil Okafor. DeMarcus Cousins. Joel Embiid. Karl Towns. Post play may be gone for now but that doesn't mean it will be gone forever.
It has been just over 4,000 days since the Wolves last had a playoff game. With Andrew Wiggins and presumably Karl-Anthony Towns, the only limit now is the imagination of Flip Saunders.
The Thunder, Suns, Jazz, Pacers, Heat, Hornets, Pistons, Nuggets, Kings, Magic, Lakers, 76ers, Knicks and Wolves missed the playoffs. Here's where they struggled and where there's hope.
