Plenty of people think that the Minnesota Timberwolves should take a cue from the Denver Nuggets when it comes to team-building.
We all know the history. The Minnesota Timberwolves have made the playoffs one time in the past 17 seasons.
By comparison, the divisional rival Denver Nuggets have made 12 of the past 17 postseasons, including a stretch of 10 straight from 2004 through 2013. In fact, they haven’t won less than 30 games during that entire span.
