Here are some positives that are improvements from last season. Rubio is responsible for some of the change.
Rubio is a good fit for NBA and a perfect fit for the Wolves. This is mostly because NBA has great scorers who attack the rim. Rubio is a great passer. Its a marriage made in heaven. All rubio has to do is pass the ball which comes natural to him. Yes Rubio is a poor shooter BUT he plays good defense and passes the ball extremely well. He is part of the reason for Pekovič's success. Rubio and Ridnour always find Pek. This team likes to pass.
Pekovič has continued his great play from Euroleague. His teammates trust him. Darko was hurt and Pek got to start in his place. Pek made the most of his opportunity. Watching Pek over power Andrew Bynum was amazing.
Darko Milicic. Now Darko is back and is playing better. I believe Pekovič has inspired Darko to play better. He had 13pts last night against the clips
Point guards Luke Ridnour and JJ Berea are excellent ball movers and efficient.
Love is Love. He is even better than last year. he had 39pts against the Clippers last night.
Beasley showed up in shape and is dominant on some nights.
Derrick Williams along with Rubio is a high performing rookie.
Rick Adelman is doing a great coaching job
Best of all Wolves with a 20-19 record are set to make the playoffs.
He is just overrated ,nothing else
