I thought Shabazz Napier described the chaos of Saunders’ system best when he said, “his plays are our spots on the floor.”
In tandem, or as he likes to say, “in alignment” with the Wolves new president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas, Saunders is going to shock Minnesota Timberwolves viewers with a brand of basketball that they have never seen before. Hands down, this will be the fastest-paced team in Timberwolves history.
“It is a major change,” said Saunders. “A major shift.”
The logic for teams that have demonstrably added pace in previous seasons comes from the belief that the athletes on their roster can punish the opponent by outrunning them. Those teams trusted in the notion that in the game of basketball the team with the ball carries the authority to impose their will. As Jordan Bell, who played on the Golden State Warriors the past two seasons, likes to say, “speed kills.”
“If you’re playing fast, you’re trying to separate,” said Robert Covington of Saunders’ system. “You’re trying to move the defense.”
In the transition from defense-to-offense, Saunders wants that separation to be immediate. It won’t matter who grabs the rebound or secures the steal, that player’s job is to shift instantly into attack mode. Immediately, once possession is secured, the new offense demands a sprint-dribble forward or a hit ahead pass to a teammate. Gone are the days of securing the rebound, pivoting around and waiting for the point guard to come get the ball. On the 2019-20 Timberwolves, everyone is a point guard.
