The man who could be considered the “veteran” on this young Timberwolves team, Kevin Love, is reporting to camp at the end of this week an impressive 25 pounds lighter than last year.

This is good news for the wolves for 2 reasons.  1. He didn’t pull a Bryant McKinnie on his fans (although Love weighting 400 pounds would be funny) and 2. It looks to me as though he wants to be ready for the new Timberwolf Offense.

I am a huge fan of Steve Nash.  That sentence is important to describe my excitement for the future of the Timberwolves.  Ricky Rubio looks like a Spanish Steve Nash.  Which means instead of the boring offense of old, this younger (apparently lighter) wolves team will look to run the floor.  Could make for an interesting season, but it could also make for a disaster as the inexperienced wolves look to start a new generation for Minnesota basketball.  I guess it all comes down to whether or not that it the offense that new Coach Rick Adelmen wants to run.
