To say that the Minnesota Timberwolves season has been a disappointment would be a massive understatement.
At 17-21 and way outside of the playoff picture, this is not where this team wanted to be by January.
Even so, Austin Rivers is still fully confident in the team’s ability to turn things around, and he urged the fan base to keep believing after a hard-fighting win over the Denver Nuggets:
“Stay with us, man, just stay with us, bro,” Rivers said postgame. “Best team in the league we beat tonight, that shows us what we’re capable of. Stay with us, bro.”
This isn’t the first time the veteran guard has addressed the team’s issues.
He feels like they’re just too good not to turn things around:
“So I know what it looks like,” Rivers said. “I don’t see it here. I just don’t see it. I don’t see this getting worse. I just don’t. It’s hard for me to see with the talent we have here, the competitiveness we have here, I don’t see this getting worse. I really don’t. We’ll be all right. “This isn’t rocket science. It’s basketball. We have professionals here. We’ve talked enough, you know what I mean. It’s just a matter of going out, doing it instead of saying it.”
The word around the league is that they could consider trading Towns if they don’t make the play-in tournament.
So, they better turn things around while they still can.
