Check out the pics after the jump….
If you look hard enough you’ll see it.

Minny's pick might be overrated. The following teams have less talent on their roster: Cleveland, Toronto, Charlotte, Washington, New Orleans. The following teams MIGHT finish worse than them: Utah...
Ricky Rubio has had three full days to acclimate himself to NBA practices and Rick Adelman's coaching strategies.
The "wow, David Kahn really likes point guards" class of jokes was starting to wear a little thin. Sure, he'd signed what seemed to be dozens of them over the course of his tenure in Minnesota (I'm not sure of the actual number. You can go here to try to count for yourself.
