Don't blink - you might have missed the Minnesota Timberwolves transform themselves from cellar-dwellers to playoff contenders in the Western Conference. Excitement was in the air last season, as Tom Thibodeau took over as head coach and inherited two of the most exciting young talents in the game, Andrew Wiggins and Karl Anthony-Towns. Despite having these two former Rookies of the Year on his squad, things didn't pan out last season as the T-Wolves missed the playoffs for the 13th consecutive year. Why the optimism for next year? Two words: Jimmy Buckets.
The Timberwolves made a splash at the 2017 NBA Draft by trading Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and the 7th overall pick to the Chicago Bulls for budding superstar Jimmy Butler and the 16th overall pick, which they used to select center Justin Patton. Butler could be the gel that will bring this young team together, as he brings not only a passionate, competitive character, but has improved each season in Chicago and was named to his first All-NBA team last season. Jimmy G averaged career highs in points (23.9), rebounds (6.2), assists (5.5), and steals (1.9) last season, and will make an immediate impact as he reunites with his old coach Thibodeau. Butler has already let his colorful personality loose, as he has expressed his confidence in the team's ability and even revealed a personal phone number for anyone "with beef." Haters beware.
