New Suns head coach Terry Porter has transformed the D into a semi-solid, but it won't be enough to stop Jefferson. Luckily for Phoenix and the rest of the league, you don't have to stop AJ at this point to beat the Wolves, 'cause they're more than likely to beat themselves, but that might not always be the case given that Minnesota also snagged two future first-round picks from Boston in the Garnett trade.
Give 'em a solid scoring forward to complement Jefferson and a consistently healthy Foye and these Wolves will be back in business. Well, since it's the T-Wolves, maybe we should just say in business.
