NBA Pre-Season 2010: Might Martell Webster Finally Find His Stride With The T'Wolves?

Since leaving Seattle Prep in 2005 to make the jump to the NBA, Martell Webster’s career has been inconsistent at best.

However, the reports about Webster during training camp after being traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves this off-season have been generally positive. And last night’s performance against the Los Angeles Lakers – 24 points on 8-for-13 shooting – is a positive sign as he continues to learn the triangle offense.

“It takes a while, I can’t deny it,” Rambis said. “But it always helps when players have a good game and get points out of the offense. He sees he can be involved in a number of different spots. He wanted to be more involved than just sitting, waiting for a three-point shot.”

Obviously it’s one game and the Lakers were admittedly sleep walking through this one. That said, if Webster is comfortable getting involved beyond just waiting for three-point shots – essentially what he’s done for most of his career – it might be a good sign.
