Former Minnesota T-Wolve/current Chicago Bull Zach LaVine recently talked to Draymond Green about his early years with Andrew Wiggins & Karl-Anthony Towns.
LaVine said that he didn’t think the T-Wolves gave their young group enough time to see what really could’ve happened, but did mention how finances would possibly become an issue as time went on.

LaVine on losing in Minnesota and the short time their Big 3 had to make it work:
“I mean we were 18, 19 years old all together sharing the court. Nothing is going to be perfect because you have to go through those bumps and bruises. Realistically, we only had 2-3 years. Everybody wanted the process to happen so fast and let’s be good so fast. It just doesn’t work like that sometimes, but growing up and having those experiences, those are my guys and it was really fun. But, I don’t think they let it marinate enough for us to really see what could’ve happened.”
LaVine on if he would’ve preferred to stay with T-Wolves to see if they could have won:
“I think everything happens for a reason, but it would’ve been tough. Realistically, it would’ve been tough there for everybody to stay on the team from a financial standpoint because we’re all really top level guys, but we never got to the point to find out if it would work or not.”
