19. Minnesota Timberwolves

For such a young team, the Minnesota Timberwolves are doing a really good job of holding their own so far this season. That spells real trouble for the rest of the Association in the future as in the young talent stakes, there really isn’t anybody in better shape than the T-Wolves right now.

Andrew Wiggins is averaging over 22 points per game, already looking every bit the superstar many hope he’ll become. Karl Anthony Towns has settled into NBA life like few rookies can, and even Zach LaVine is looking super sharp. The guidance of veterans like Kevin Garnett, Tayshaun Prince and Andre Miller clearly has a real impact, and all combined, it makes for fun times for Minnesota.
