Rick Adelman Thinks Timberwolves Are Complacent Already

National Basketball Association(NEW YORK) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves just might have enough talent to make it to the playoffs in the Western Conference, but head coach Rick Adelman thinks the team is getting a little too comfortable too early.

"They've got to figure out what they want to do as a team," Adelman told the Star Tribune. "I just told them, 'What kind of season do you want?' That's really up to us to make what we want. They've got to figure it out what they want to do as a team."

With a roster that includes Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic, and Kevin Martin, the Timberwolves may finally be able to get back into the playoffs for the first time since the 2003-2004 season.

"I don't understand," he added. "Like I told them afterward, we've played two games here at home and we're acting like we're just going through the motions. We aren't the San Antonio Spurs and we aren't Miami. We act like we have plenty of time."

This will be Adelman's third season with the team.
