Certainly a team to watch this season.

Rubio proved that he is a valuable contributor, that can turn a team around Love (with Rick on the bench) into a playoff contender.

Kevin became an elite player in this league, Minny is deep at every position and Brandon Roy, one the league's most positive players, came out of retirement and looks good enough even for Adelman, who said that he is gonna use him for 30-32 minutes every night

They are playing true team basketball, they are exciting, they are white (racism?), they are smart, they are young and experienced at the same time and they are going to have a breakout season despite all those injuries.

Probably, the most epic thread on the Dish this year is officially started

Bottom Feeder again. City/Team is cursed. There not winning anything for the next decade. Kevin Love can't wait to leave from my sources.

That team looks great if all healthy and they have a great coach

Should make a noise in the league if they can stop getting injured

Meh...I'll only follow them to see the beauty of Rick's offense.


Other than that, I'm not convinced.


WOuldn't it be nice if Kevin could actually coach like Rick though?

The first game is important, especially against Sacramento. It's going to set the tone, too bad it's almost in the same time with Rockets game

Kings are looking like a D-League team, Bobcats re-make for sure. Horrible display, Minny is dominating

It should be a much easier win, but anyway, that's what you expected

Roy looked nice, he was moving way better than in the end of that Portland season. He wasn't able to put that shots in, but he's going to be OK at least in the first weeks of the season, when they need to be mediocre at best.

It will only be a matter of time before Derrick Williams gets traded.

Maybe the Rockets can facilitate a deal.

Wonderful comeback by Minny today. Nets were red hot from three through first 3Q's, but they weren't playing as good as their lead was (up to 22 points). Wolves stood to their gameplan, fought till the end and crushed Brooklyn in the fourth to get a W. This team really reminds our Rick's Rockets, and Adelman ate Avery alive

As much as his Jazz days made me want to puke, Kirilenko is looking like a solid pick up for them.

3-1 without Love and Rubio. Completely destroyed Orlando today.

Rubio and Kirilenko will cause nightmares for offenses.

They're young and extremely talented. I really don't understand why would anybody call them bottom feeders. When they get their guys back and if they stay relatively healthy, they're reaching PO easily. Well assembled, talented team with a great coach. What's not to like.

This is a reason why there are people excited for Minny.

Also they are a likeable squad with a pretty awesome coach.
