Timberwolves PG Derrick Rose explains giving feedback to teammates
“It’s about understanding one another and having that chemistry where you could give someone good or bad criticism,” Rose said. “There’s nothing wrong with coming up to your teammates, tapping them when he’s doing something wrong, doing something right and vice versa.”
It seems like from what Rose is saying is there is a lack of trust between teammates right now, where they cannot really give each other criticism.
The most important things for a team to have a successful season is to have excellent chemistry and trust. Those are two key ingredients to a very great team.
The Golden State Warriors, for example, have those quality ingredients. This is why they are so successful and have won titles three out of the last four years.
It looks like right now, the Wolves do not have any of this, which is why they are off to a slow start.
However, with Jimmy Butler no longer around to toxify Minnesota’s locker room, it could just be a matter of time before chemistry becomes a much lesser issue for the Timberwolves.
Once the season goes along, they could always develop and regain the chemistry and trust. The Wolves are only 13 games into their season. There is still plenty of time to do this.
They need to start doing it now before it gets too late.
