    If that team is ever healthy, they will be really good under adelman.

    RRubio
    NPekovic

    This is the sleeper team of 2013-14.

    They'll be fighting LAL for the 8th seed

    Well, of course that's why I say they'll be fighting for the 8th spot

    All this team needs is a high-post passing big-man to be NBA league pass gold. They might be the worst team in the league on defense, but this team would average 120 PPG every night... wonder if Adelman can squeeze another year out of Brad Miller????

    I was huge fans of K-Mart and Air-Bud when they were here, and I consider Kevin Love my favorite non-Rocket, so I'm pretty excited to watch them this year.

    The Timberwolves will be in the playoffs. Its basically the 2009/2010 teams plus an All-Star four and a true defensive center, and the Rockets were on the fringe of the playoffs in 2009 and 2010.

    That team ain't going anywhere until Rubio learns to shoot. You can't play 4 on 5 on offense and expect to successful in the NBA.

    I love how Minnesota is basically recreating the old Houston team, except fulfilling the "what if we somehow traded Chandler Parsons for Kevin Love" scenario. :grin:

    Rondo has a 48 percent FG percentage. That little bit higher than the 36% that Rubio shoots. Rubio can't even make a layup.

    Adelman's teams are never healthy. I think he is cursed.

    Pekovic isn't a true defensive center

    Both the T-Wolves and Adelman need to move on after next season.

    Everyone expects them to be a high powered offense. Well, Rubio and Pek and Bud are not high side players. Sorry.

    Pek on offense:

    Pekovic and Bud are going to be fine in the corner offense. Biggest question I have about their offense is whether Ricky can figure out how to make a layup.

    This statement basically sums up Adelman's entire coaching career.

    good for the fuhrer! you got to keep doing what you love and not just go in to the bunker.

    I think they will be fun to watch like the 2010 rockets, only they won't be out rebounded by midgets like we were. 7or 8th seed sounds about right.
