Are the Timberwolves Contenders?

The Minnesota Timberwolves are off to a terrific start to the 2023-2024 NBA season. They have one of the best young players in the league in Anthony Edwards and also two talented big men in Karl Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert. This team has had the talent but now they are finally starting to figure things out this year.

So far the Timberwolves have a 7-2 record and have beaten some of the top teams in the league such as the Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets, and Golden State Warriors. This team is led by Anthony Edwards who is averaging 28.4 points per game and is an early MVP candidate. Additionally, Karl Anthony-Towns has now accepted the role as the second option on this team but has been great. Towns is averaging over 19 points and nine rebounds.

This team has a great core of players but is also deep. It could set them up for success in the regular season and in the playoffs. It is still way too early in the season to call if this team will be competitive come playoff time but they are off to a hot start and hopefully can build off of this momentum moving forward.
