Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis lauded the progress Flynn made throughout the season, saying he may have been the player who improved the most from beginning to end.

Three point guards taken after Flynn -- Golden State's Stephen Curry, Milwaukee's Brandon Jennings and New Orleans' Darren Collison all made the first team along with Sacramento's Tyreke Evans and Chicago forward Taj Gibson.
