It’s crazy. Minnesota should be as good as Portland. They got a great young center, and Gibson is an incredible rebounder. Rose is having his greatest season since before his first knee injury. And Covington and Saric are really good pieces. It all comes down to Wiggins not fulfilling his draft promise of being a great defender. Putting aside his inefficient shooting, if he could just defend and pass a few times, there’s no reason he couldn’t be a decent #2 option on a playoff team.
