Ricky Rubio: ‘Too Early To Talk About Playoffs’ for Timberwolves

The TWolves added Kevin Martin and Corey Brewer and Kevin Love has a full bill of health, but Ricky Rubio is not talking Playoffs just yet for Minnesota. Keeping things 100 in an interview with HoopsHype, Rubio said it’s still “too early to say if the playoffs are the goal” this season: “Q: It’s playoffs or bust? RR: ‘Too early to say if the playoffs are the goal. Let’s see how things go in training camp and how the new pieces fit in. Then we’ll see how things evolve during the season, it’s too early to talk about playoffs.’ Q: But the nucleus of the team is very promising, right? RR: ‘It is. We really want to make it and we will be ambitious, but let’s go step by step and let’s not set a big goal right now.’”

    they have been talking about it for the past two years and rightfully so. they caught some tough breaks. even if they are fully healthy this year the playoffs are not a lock. the race for those last two spots should be exciting

    I see them making playoffs, I like how they have a lot of versatility. if they want they can spread 4 wide with love and have pekovic just have tons of room to work downlow. I thunk that’s there beat way of winning if there team can shoot the 3 at a high clip

    Yeah I had overlooked them in my top 10 in the West but they have to be up there…. 7th seed and push LAL out of the picture???

    We’d have OKC, Houston, SA, Memphis, Clips in some order as Top 5, right?
    With GS a dark horse to make it there, but 6 is their floor, I think.
    That’d leave the Lakers, Portland, Minny, Dallas, Utah, and Denver vying for two spots, and New Orleans has potential too. I don’t think Sacremento is ready yet, and Phoenix? Well… no haha. That’s a reallyyyyy competitive year. Any of those teams has the potential to make it in. I’d say a fully healthy Kevin Love gets Minny in, and next is probably Portland, altho I’m a massive homer so Kobe comes back looking 23 with metal legs to sky and Lakers make the 8 seed, then rip through the playoffs!
    … A guy can dream, right?
