Kevin-Martin

The Kevin Martin Files

Number two on the roster review docket, is the incumbent starting shooting guard, Kevin Martin. He is one of the holdovers from a bygone era: The Adelmanian Years. The Adelmanian Age was a time in Twolves past when PFs shot step back threes, wing players imitated NFL wide outs: when the front court featured flat footed rim-protection and […]

The Ricky Rubio Files: Revisitado

To start this off-season’s player profiles, I feel it’s essential to review and amend my attempt at this same project from last October. Most of The Ricky Rubio Files largely remains applicable. That article speaks for itself. Unfortunately, what is no longer applicable, isn’t exactly any more positive than before. This year, I’ll toss in […]

Dr. Flip Saunderstine, pondering some basketball genius ponderings.

The Danger of Potential

First thing’s first. Rejoice! This is an incredible time in Timberwolves history. For the first time, the Twolves received the #1 pick in the draft. And, for one of the few times in the last decade, they actually used it to take a player that most everyone considers to be not only solid, but rock solid. Take a […]

An Airing of Grievances

In accordance to the traditions of last month’s “festivus for the rest of us” I have written an airing of grievances against my beloved Timberwolves. Let’s just say that I’m breaking into new territory into the land of a frustrated critic. I’ve endured, and managed to enjoy too much bad Timberwolves basketball. For years they’ve been stuck […]

Brutality

I had hoped that my first post of this season would be about a more positive subject, but last nights developments suggest a very negative turn. The Twolves came into Orlando looking confident and strong after an impressive final six minutes against Brooklyn. In Brooklyn we saw a Wolves team that rose to the occasion, […]

The Ricky Rubio Files

This is an exciting time for the Timberwolves organization. Whether or not that excitement will translate to a high percentag of wins sooner, later or ever, still up in the air. Now that Kevin Love has been shipped out of town in exchang for Young and the youngsters, the Twolves roster looks vastly different. It’s […]

Timberwolves FIBA World Cup Preview

While it’s not our Timberwolves, and not even the NBA, the FIBA World Cup brings basketball back in the the forefront. At least for some of us. Of course the FIBA World Cup isn’t as high profile as the FIFA World Cup, however, international basketball teams have become far more competitive over the years. Having […]

Is Wiggins (or any other T-wolf) Hungry Like a Wolf?

Today in the Startribune Kent Youngblood wrote a great article overviewing Andrew Wiggins, the person and the player. In which Youngblood quotes Bill Self to have said this: “He absolutely was too nice. And he’s still too nice. Flip [Saunders] will have to get more of that dog in him. He’s just young.” We all know […]

The Minnesota Timberwolves Today

So, here we are Wolves fans. The draft is done, the Summer League’s in action, and the roster has 14 players on it. The off-season’s largest of dominoes have fallen. LeBron’s dramatic home coming, Melo and Bosh’s less dramatic decisions to remain where they were, and Pau Gasol joining the Bulls, put Kevin Love at […]

Thoughts on Coach Flip & General Ramblings

Well, this offseason has been an awful lot of … “exactly-what-we-expecteds”: 1. The Twolves didn’t manage to improve in their lottery luck. 2. Kevin Love has voiced his desire to no longer be a Timberwolf 3. Flip has hired himself. Now, I have to say, this makes some sense. While I’m not thrilled with this […]

DRAFT2014

My Twolves Big Board

Now that the draft lottery has gone … the only way we really could have expected it to … and Kevin Love has said …. what we had to expect him to … it’s time I share my in depth thoughts about this years NBA draft prospects. But first: Some Questions that have to be […]

RANTING on the Twolves & Love Lost

In the wake of Kevin Love saying exactly what we expected him to say, my first thought was… Okay finally, now we can move on. Through all of this K-love drama since the days of the Woj interview, I tried to downplay the “Kevin want’s out” rumors. The assertion of the franchise has always been […]

What Went Wrong & What Now

40 wins. Some were blow-outs, a few were nail biters, and nearly none of them seemed certain.    42 losses. Most were agonizing, many were demoralizing, and some were embarrassing. 10th in the Western Conference. Two spots out of the party that is the NBA playoffs. So close but, oh so far.    Woof. Sad […]

Looking Forward Once Again

I admit the second half of this Wolves season has been a major disappointment. The team didn’t come together. Ronnie and Chase came back but they didn’t have the impact I imagined. Ronnie has played great when he is healthy and Chase even showed promise before his latest injury. Injuries to Nikola Pekovic and Kevin […]

Beginning the Second Act: Pack of Hungry Wolves or Stray Dogs?

  On December 27th in the star tribune Kevin Martin is quoted saying that the season actually starts after Christmas. Kevin Love mentioned how the wolves need to get back to their winning ways. For me, these quotes are tough to hear. What winning ways? A 13-15 record is not awful, but if the season […]
