07:13 AM ET 10.03 | For the first time in his life, NBA rookie Shabazz Muhammad is now a smaller fish in a bigger pond. [Muhammad] finds himself well down the Timberwolves' order of possibilities, so much so that a player formerly infatuated with scoring has used training camp's first two days accomplishing the little things instead. That includes trying to prove he's the best offensive rebounder on a team with Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic. ... "I've always been a tenacious rebounder," Muhammad said. "That's one thing I love to do and that can help our team out a lot." His teammates know it, too. "He is just relentless," Love said, "and I told him he has to keep that up, especially if you really want to work your way into some significant minutes. Just keep doing that and we're going to be OK. He's a bull in there."

Love shouldn't be lecturing ANYONE of getting minutes when he can hardly stay on the floor himself. Given Wolves propensity for injuries, I expect Mohammad to get PLENTY of minutes this season.

Talking and explaining yourself doesn't do any good. Just show it during the game. Now we're looking for you to have monster rebounding numbers because you said so.

We shall see.

I'm sure being told that if he didn't straighten up and fly right that he'd be looking at the D League had nothing to do with it. Yeah, right!
