The Minnesota Timberwolves have the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Let’s look at the history of the top selection.
The Minnesota Timberwolves landed the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft for only the second time in franchise history.

This draft is already being maligned as relatively weak at the top, but the No. 1 pick is still the No. 1 pick. Not surprisingly, the track record of the top pick is much better than any other spot in the draft’s history.

For their part, the Timberwolves had only landed the top pick once, despite participating in the lottery 22 times in 30 years. Of course, that was in 2015 when they landed All-Star big man Cheap Karl-Anthony Towns Jersey. (Yes, the Wolves had No. 1 pick Cheap Andrew Wiggins Jersey on the roster and he won Rookie of the Year, but that was following a post-draft trade.)

There were several big drops for the Wolves in the lottery throughout the years. Most notably was in 1992, when Minnesota finished the regular season with just 15 wins and had the best odds to win the No. 1 pick and select LSU’s Shaquille O’Neal. But they dropped to No. 3, missing out on Alonzo Mourning at No. 2 as well and ultimately settling for Cheap Christian Laettner Jersey.

The next year, the Wolves had the second-best odds but fell to No. 5 while Chris Webber went first. Even the No. 2 through No. 4 picks (Shawn Bradley, Anfernee Hardaway, and Jamal Mashburn) all had better careers than Cheap Isaiah Rider Jersey, who went to Minnesota at No. 5.

Again in 1994, the Wolves were tied for the second-best odds but fell to No. 4, missing out on Glenn Robinson, Jason Kidd, and Grant Hill — the latter two Hall-of-Famers and Robinson a two-time All-Star.

And the beat went on throughout much of the 1990s, with the Wolves’ one significant draft victory being the selection of Cheap Kevin Garnett Jersey at No. 5 overall in 1995.

Now that Minnesota finally has another crack at the No. 1 pick, it’s worth going back and looking at what the historical hit rate of the top selection has been. While there are several notable busts, having the No. 1 selection has obviously been advantageous.

Let’s start with the players who came nowhere near matching expectations.

Little was a star running back during his college and NFL days, earning three All-America selections while at Syracuse University and retiring as the NFL’s seventh-leading rusher in 1975. He was also a five-time Pro Bowler.

Minnesota Timberwolves star Cheap Karl-Anthony Towns Jersey on Friday said that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

The diagnosis is especially hard for Towns, whose mother, Jacqueline Cruz-Towns, died at 59 on April 13 from complications of COVID-19. She had dealt with the virus for a month.

Towns said before the season that six other family members have also died from complications of the virus.

Towns: ‘Hardened, humbled’ after COVID deaths
“Prior to tonight’s game, I received yet another awful call that I tested positive for COVID,” Towns said in a statement shared on social media. “I will immediately isolate and follow every protocol. I pray every day that this nightmare of a virus will subside and I beg everyone to continue to take it seriously by taking all the necessary precautions. …

“It breaks my heart that my family, and particularly my father and sister continue to suffer from the anxiety that comes along with this diagnosis as we know all too well what the end result could be. To my niece and nephew … I promise you I will not end up in a box next to grandma and I will beat this.”

Minnesota announced earlier that its Friday night game against the Memphis Grizzlies had been postponed because of contact tracing in the Timberwolves’ organization.

Gersson Rosas, the team’s president of basketball operations, said during a news conference Friday that the organization has had two positive tests — including Towns — over the past two days and that one player is in the league’s contact tracing protocols.

Cheap Ricky Rubio Jersey and Juancho Hernangomez were listed as out on Thursday’s injury report for health and safety protocols.

“It’s heartbreaking,” Rosas said of Towns’ diagnosis. “It’s a lesson for all of us. Basketball is a microcosm of society right now and you can do the right things — our protocol has been strong. Our staff has done an unbelievable job of making sure we test, we mask, we follow protocol. But this virus is powerful and its creative.

“… Karl is the most important part of this organization,” Rosas added. “What he’s gone through, what Karl Sr. has gone through — it couldn’t be more heartbreaking.”

Towns, 25, missed six games this season with a wrist injury but returned to the court last week. He’s averaging 22 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists in four games.

The Dallas Mavericks fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves in their final pre-season game, losing 129-127 in overtime. While the additional period gave some extra playing time to the rookies, it was Luka Doncic and Tim Hardaway Jr. who led in scoring with 20 and 18 points respectively. Karl Anthony Towns led his team with 20 himself, though he sat for much of the second half with foul trouble.

The starters quickly raced to an 11-3 start, thanks to a couple Hardaway Jr. three’s. Minnesota took the lead with three minutes left in the quarter, though, as the Mavericks went a little cold and Karl Anthony Towns and rookie Cheap Anthony Edwards Jersey found their rhythm. The starters came off the floor at the two minute mark, and trailed 37-33 to end the first.

The bench struggles continued in the second, as they couldn’t stop easy buckets by the Wolves and made some “it’s preseason” errors. Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle eventually put his starters back in around the seven minute mark. The Mavericks took the lead with around two minutes left thanks to another Hardaway Jr. three pointer, and a late 14-2 run put them up 68-61 at the end of the half.

The second half started off pretty choppy with Minnesota racking up various fouls, putting KAT on the bench with five fouls, seemingly the only way to stop him. The Mavericks starters maintained their seven point margin with continued distance shots and perfect free throw shooting. After a great dish by Doncic to Powell for an and-one dunk, the lead was pushed to 10. The Mavericks then hit four unanswered threes to push the lead to 98-83 after three quarters.

A strange-ish lineup of Burke, Brunson, Johnson, Cauley-Stein, and Lee opened the fourth, and some careless errors and turnovers allowed the Wolves to close the Mavericks lead to seven midway through the quarter. By then, Carlisle began to unload the bench, and a more talented cast of Wolves tied the game at 112 each with two minutes left. With 4.5 seconds left and time for one last Mavericks shot to win the game, rookie Tyrell Terry had his elbow jumper blocked, giving us pre-season overtime!!

The Mavericks went with the same Boban + four rookies lineup in overtime, and they hung on to the Wolves’ lead with free throws and letting Boban work in the paint. Missed Wolves free throws gave the lineup another chance for a final shot. Boban attempted a three to win the game, but it unfortunately rimmed out.

With so much unknown about the Minnesota Timberwolves going into the season, Vegas might be undervaluing the Wolves.
With the 2020-21 NBA season nearing, now is the most popular time for sports bettors to make their futures bets for the upcoming season, and there may be some value in the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Sportsbooks across the country will be taking bets for the NBA title winners, season-long win totals, MVP and other award winners, and more over the coming weeks leading up to opening day on Dec. 22.

The Timberwolves provide a unique opportunity for bettors as a team whose roster has spent very little time on the floor together, creating a lot of unknowns for fans and bettors. What will the starting lineup look like? How will Karl-Anthony Towns perform early on in the season? What will be Anthony Edwards’ role?

Despite this uncertainty, this is a very important season for the Wolves. After sharing the court just one time last season, Towns and D’Angelo Russell will finally be able to show the NBA what they are capable of as a duo.

This season is also important because of the team’s lack of a first-round pick in the next draft, as the Wolves’ 2021 pick was traded to Golden State last season. If the team doesn’t do well, the Warriors will be left with a high pick in the first round of next year’s draft, and the Wolves walk away with a poor season and nothing to show for it.

The league hasn’t seen what D’Lo and KAT can do yet, which has also contributed to the amount of uncertainty surrounding the Wolves. This uncertainty has created opportunities for sports bettors who have confidence in D’Lo, KAT and the Wolves this coming season.

It is very possible that sportsbooks are undervaluing the Wolves, and for sports bettors, this at least warrants taking a look at some futures bets before the season starts.

With that said, let’s go through some Timberwolves-related futures bets that might be worth taking. And, of course, If you choose to gamble, please gamble responsibly and legally.

The Luka of Old returns
For the most part, this is a pretty great thing, given what we saw during Doncic’s sophomore year. However, some of his more frustrating tendencies reappeared today, in contrast to what we saw versus the Bucks. He goose-egged from the three point line, missing six attempts. In response, he began to pass up open three point shots he would’ve taken in the Bucks games, opting for the drives to the basket that we saw with growing frequency towards the end of last season. That being said, he was great from the free-throw line, going 8-of-9.

He also continued to chirp at the refs, frustrated by no-calls on many of his shots, to the point where he received a technical in the third quarter. Reminder, that’s his second technical of the PRE-SEASON. It’s safe to say that last year the refs just didn’t know how to handle his style of play at times. We’ll have to see if that changes this season, and if it doesn’t, how Luka responds to that adversity.

The hot shooting from deep continues
One thing that did transfer over from the Bucks games was the insane 3-point shooting across the board (besides Luka). The Mavericks finished 20-of-44 from distance, exemplified by a stretch in the third quarter of four unanswered threes. What might be the most impressive thing about that run is that they were hit by four different players: Kleber, Finney-Smith, Richardson, and finally the newly appearing Courtney Lee.

It is RARE for multiple high-volume players to shoot more than 50 percent from three over multiple games, and that’s what we saw in the preseason. Hardaway Jr., Finney-Smith, Kleber, and Richardson went a wild 14-of-19 from three today, and it’s spelled great things for all four of them going forward. Richardson specifically has shown he can provide much of the shooting the Mavericks lost with Seth Curry’s departure.

Powell struggled against opposing bigs
Dwight Powell, coming back from an Achilles tear, has reassured Mavericks fans thus far in the preseason with his movement and vertical for the most part. He’s also continued to be a dangerous lob threat playing with the likes of Doncic, and even has been willing to shoot (and make one) three’s when left open.

His defense against opposing bigs, from Giannis Antetokounmpo and Brooke Lopez previously to Cheap Karl-Anthony Towns Jersey tonight, has left much to be desired. KAT simply overpowered him on several occasions in the post for easy layups or dunks. At other times, he’d leave Powell in the dust with a pump fake that Powell would always react to, opening a lane to the bucket. Powell’s biggest defensive advantage lies in his perimeter help defense and general athleticism, but when put on a single big in the post, he has neither the length or the size in most cases, and the Mavericks paid for it on many plays.

Powell’s place in the starting in the starting lineup has been and will be a topic of debate among MFFL’s, with folks like WCS, Kleber, and Cheap James Johnson Jersey in the mix, but it looks like for the time being Carlisle intends to keep him there. We shall see how these questions are answered once the season begins.

The Mavericks will open the season on Wednesday, Dec. 23 against the Suns in Phoenix.
