Each day of training camp, our Kyle Ratke will answer three questions from fans. These aren’t actually letters or even emails because it’s 2017. These are tweets. Welcome to the future.

I think pretty well. I can’t say for sure because I’ve never specifically asked Justin, “How are you liking Minnesota?” But that actually seems like a pretty decent question, so thanks for the help, Buckey.

What I will say is that Justin is always positive and said he grew up a Wolves fan in Nebraska, so I’d imagine he’s pretty happy in Minnesota. He seems like a guy you could drop in the middle of the woods and he’d find something to smile about.

Teague will play a lot. The Wolves signed him to be the starter and he’s played less than 30 minutes per game once since 2011.

The last five starting point-guard minutes for Thibodeau:

Ricky Rubio: 32.9 MPG
Derrick Rose: 30 MPG
Kirk Hinrich: 29 MPG
Hinrich: 29.4 MPG
Rose: 35.3 MPG

I’d be surprised if Teague didn’t play more than 30 minutes per game.

My guess was flying. But that’s probably impossible, but at this point, I’m not really sure what’s real and fake. I’ve watched a lot of superhero movies.

My best guesses:

  1. Skyhook shot.
  2. The Paul Pierce/Kevin Love pump-fake 3-pointer to draw the foul.
  3. Flying.

Great questions. We’ll be back tomorrow.
