Interesting analysis. Puts a lot of pressure on Edwards to improve both sides of the ball. Could see them as a #1 or #2 in the west but not a true title threat.
I think the success of this team all comes down to coaching and player buy-in. Most of the Wolves primary players now have some solid skills in multiple facets of the game. Unfortunately, most also still have one or more more prevalent deficiencies as well.
Finch and the staff will be challenged to get these pieces working together to highlight their strengths and minimize the weaknesses... not ground breaking... but absolutely necessary for this team to make some real noise. Some players may see their role on the team change dramatically... KAT being the most notable. Can KAT adjust to a more 4-like role on defense when he is on the floor with Gobert?
Gobert adds so many elements that this team has been lacking. If deployed effectively, I think that his presence can help erase mistakes from others on D while providing a similar outlet on the offensive end with his ability to get up and put the ball down.
In addition to the immediate skills he brings to the table, I think Gobert allows many of the other players to hide their weaknesses... again if they play within themselves as a team.
Looking forward to seeing how this squad performs in just over a month!
If you’re #1 or #2 in the west, you’re a title threat.
