Saunders Excited; Says Wolves Scary Team
If Flip Saunders had behaved this way when he was 5 years old, someone would have prescribed Ritalin.
The man is on fire. As the Timberwolves’ personnel boss discussed his many moves on Friday, he could barely sit still. And after the news conference, when the room had emptied, he gushed with the kind of optimism that most team executives try to keep hidden beneath a layer of professional caution.
“I’m really excited about what we have,” Saunders said. “I don’t want to put any expectations on us. And the reason I don’t want to put any expectations on us is I don’t want to make those expectations too low.
“I do believe if we stay healthy, the way Rick [Adelman] coaches and with the system we have, that we could be a very scary team.”
