Minnesota Timberwolves Preseason Home Opener
The Minnesota Timberwolves will have their preseason home opener tomorrow vs. the Denver Nuggets. There is a substantial amount of optimism heading into this season than compared to last season. Gone are guys like Ryan Hollins, Oleksiy Pecherov, Aleksandar Pavlović, Damien Wilkins, Ramon Sessions, and Ryan Gomes. With 9 new players, Minnesota Timberwolves fans can now witness if Michael Beasley, Wesley Johnson, Martell Webster, Nikola Pekovic, and Lazar Hayward can become NBA stars. Kevin Love and Jonny Flynn will be expected to become team leaders. There won't be many easy games for a team coming off of 15 wins, but the roster is now stock piled with talent that could make us 1 player away from being back in the playoff race.
