Damien Wilkins Gets Write-Up in AJC

He seems to be faring pretty well on a bad team.

The Timberwolves will improve during the year, now that Kevin Love is playing again. At some point, they will go back to their big line-up, with Love, Jefferson and Gomes, and Wilkins will leave the starting five.

Damien could score more points if he were more selfish about taking shots. He seems to defer to others on the team. And that's okay. I think that Wilkins sees his role as that of a defense-first guy, usually matched up against the other team's best scorer.

Wilkins won't ever lead the NBA in scoring, but he has made a nice career for himself. Hope he can stay in the League for a long time.
