The Minnesota Timberwolves have had an up-and-down season. Just when it seems like they may be finding momentum, they seem to encounter new problems at every turn. It has led many to ask questions about the Wolves’ roster and whether certain players belong on the team.

All in all, this season has been a frustrating one for fans of the Timberwolves. Seeing a roster stacked with talent struggle to find consistency is draining to say the least. However, it has clearly not had too much of a debilitating effect on one Wolves player: D’Angelo Russell.

After Friday night’s loss to the Boston Celtics, Russell showed where his confidence is when he quote tweeted a highlight of him making a sneaky good pass to Naz Reid cutting toward the basket. His caption said it all: “Best passer in the league.” 

D’Angelo Russell sees himself as the best passer in the NBA

There is no doubt D’Angelo Russell made a very eye-popping pass on this play. With Jaylen Brown defending him, D-Lo watches as Naz Reid makes a cut to the rim. Seeing the action, Brown turns to chase Reid, but Russell has just enough time to slip an extremely well-placed pass right into Naz’s hands.

The pass was one of Russell’s 10 assists in the game against the Celtics, and it was a great show of his excellent court vision and timeliness in passing the ball. Recently, D-Lo has been on a tear as Minnesota’s floor general. He has racked up a total of 39 assists over the Timberwolves’ last five games, notching four games with eight assists or more.

Given his recent production, it makes sense that he is brimming with confidence in his point guard abilities. Whether D’Angelo Russell is unequivocally the best passer in the NBA is up for debate, but it is good to see that he is not lacking belief in himself.
