I wish I had gone into the NBA superstar profession.
If Malik makes First Team All-Defense I will go to work in my William Avery jersey the day of the announcement.
If Malik makes first team all defense the Wolves will beat their over/under by at least 15 wins.
On Zoom w/ Ryan Saunders + Malik Beasley: Ryan: "On the defensive end, we need to show improvement there. And these guys have all said they're more committed there. And Malik being the first guy there... Malik tells me every day" Malik then chimes in: "First team All-D, baby!"
Maybe it's just "saying the right things" to the media but it sure does feel like everyone on this team is happy to be playing with Ricky. They truly love and respect him and know he is going to get them some easy buckets and help the team in multiple ways.
RT @MollyMcKew: I have a question. Maybe there’s an answer so obvious that there’s a reason no one writes about it. But — Mitch McConnell has had a stranglehold on what gets done in Washington for nearly 20 years. Why is there so very little reporting on him, his ties, his motivations?
Damn. High praise, coming from a guy that played a few years with Jokic.
Juancho Hernangomez on Karl-Anthony Towns "He's a perennial MVP. We need him to be here 100%. We need him healthy. We need him to motivate. He's our leader. We're gonna go as far as he wants to. So that's kind of a pressure on him, but I think he's ready to take the challenge."
RT @ChristopherHine: Malik Beasley, on a Zoom call w/media, declines to respond to the charges he's facing citing the fact that it's an ongoing legal issue. When asked about the Timberwolves' support he said: "I just have to learn how to keep growing and keep getting better on and off the court."
This podcast is so good.
*looks at roster* ......I think they'll be okay in that department
