Minnesota Timberwolves Rumors
You also touched on Jimmy. What were your thoughts on the team and the locker room dynamic? Jeff Teague: The first year, we were nice. If Jimmy didn’t get hurt, I think we’re a top-five seed in the West. Our team was good. We were locked in. Jimmy just wants to win. He doesn’t care how many points he scores. He doesn’t care about the assists. He just wants to win. That’s what I loved about him. I don’t think anybody really had a problem with that. He’s hard-nosed, so he wants to win at any cost, so he’s going to get on you. As a player, you’ve got to be able to accept that. I think, for the most part, most of the guys accepted that he’s going to get on you because he’s going to work just as hard. You can get back on him because he wants that kind of energy too. As a veteran, I loved that. If I’m not in the right spot, get on me. If you’re not in the right spot, I’m going to get on you. I think that’s what helped our team get a lot better.

Darren Wolfson: One point of clarification: I am told that Montana Yao is Malik’s significant other. The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office clearly notes wife. But told by others that best route is to go with significant other. #Timberwolves
