David Kahn, the immortal general manager of the Minnesota Timberwolves, envisions Minnesota qualifying for the postseason next year if they can remain reasonably healthy. Per the Pioneer Press: “If this is the team you go into the season with, are you feeling good about competing for a playoff spot — or even more than just a playoff spot? DK: ‘If we stay healthy. We learned the hard way last year what that means. Last year, we were fighting for a playoff spot, and through two-thirds of the season things were moving on a nice incline. And all of a sudden, the world came to an end in a matter of a few weeks (after rookie point guard Ricky Rubio suffered a season-ending knee injury). If we stay healthy, we should be competing for a playoff spot.’ [...] Do you feel pretty good about the signings you’ve made? DK: ‘I think we’re much better than we were at the end of last season. And I think that it will be a fun year.’”
