    Minnesota should easily Gentle Sweep this one
    but
    I don't trust Gobert and KAT

    They let this one get to a Game 7 . . .they deserve to lose

    T-Wolves tanked their final game to avoid the Lakers and face the Softies and will handle them very easily.

    The Twolves were owned by the Suns this season and even many local sports pundits here are predicting the Wolves lose this one. The StarTribune writer predicted Suns in 6.

    Also it’s a Minnesota tradition to lose in the first round even when favored.

    I'd bet against KAT
    I'd bet against Gobert
    Not sure I want to bet again Edwards

    He seems to have the biggest heart on the court

    OKC is facing the 4th Seed or 5th Seed Clippers or Dallas in 2nd Round and Minny has to beat Denver first.

    They might not even play each other or they might.

    Suns are too dysfunctional and prone to meltdowns. Either the players don't like each other or they strongly dislike Vogel.

    They also have less "heart" than the T-Wolves.

    The playoffs is where the big boys play and Phoenix have three of them lead by Durant. Phoenix in 6.

    I’m rooting hard for the Wolves…I don’t like anybody on PHX

    Wolves have a pretty underrated home crowd, so looking forward to seeing how boisterous the fans will be with them hosting a playoff series for the 1st time since Garnett

    I'm truly shocked the oddsmakers have the Suns favored to win the series. I know they haven't done anything, but this is too disrespectful of the T-Wolves IMO.

    I was told Devin Booker was the best player in all of basketball. But not in playoffs? Lolol
