’14-’15 Review Part 2: Return of Flip a Test of Patience for Wolves Faithful

Yesterday we went through part 1 of our season recap which discussed players individually and future concerns surrounding player health. Today we will go broader and discuss the front-office and coaching-related events of this last season and how it might impact the Wolves moving forward. Please be aware that this piece is not going to […]


Garnett Offers Wolves Youth a Chance at Similar Legacy

Back in the late 90’s, before I was legally allowed to drive an automobile, I would await a ride home from a small house in East Bloomington where I studied drums with an old man who was just shy of 5 feet tall. There, we would spend about an hour per week studying and writing […]

The Return of KG Brings Mixed Emotions

You are well aware. Kevin Garnett is back. While the trade has not yet been reported by the Wolves in official capacity, the afternoon and morning have brought about a ton of chatter and debate on whether this is good move or a bad one. Trade deadline day is always a blast, and results in […]

Wolves Recent Trades Bring Us More of the Same

If you decided to click this link (thanks for visiting), odds are you have gotten your fill of commentary and opinion surrounding the pair of trades the Wolves made the other day and are, thus, well aware of the details. Sometimes, it is good to take a couple of days to let these things breathe […]

Painful Reality: Tanking is Probably Best Move For Wolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been defeated in 19 of their last 20 games. For math wizards, this is pretty close to losing 25% of the season in one fell swoop. Other than a terrific and exciting game on Wednesday vs. the Phoenix Suns, the Wolves have been exceedingly difficult to watch for a myriad of […]

Is the Future as Bright as We Think? Discussing Current Concerns

Many have covered the embarrassing pair of defeats from this past weekend, capping off a horrific road trip that quite possibly could not have gone any worse for a multitude of reasons. After a 2-2 start that rose expectations to unhealthy levels, the following transpired: Ricky Rubio injured his foot and is out, potentially, until […]


Flip vs. McHale in Mexico

A bloodbath is imminent. For those of you talking yourself into Flip’s antiquated offense, tonight will be the worst possible juxtaposition to support your theories. 1st to worst in 3 point attempts, with a difference of nearly 19 3 attempts per game (32.9 HOU vs. 14.2 MIN), and a much more palatable 3rd to 11th […]

Games 5+6: Wolves in Florida

This has to be a quick one, so I will sum up a few things to watch for in bullet/dash form while the Wolves spend the next couple of days in Florida. -Pek vs. Vucevic. The Nikolas have had their ups and downs to start the season but Vucevic has generally been a destructive force, […]

Game 4: Flip vs. KG and the Nyets

The gauntlet begins tonight, a 6 game road trip starting in Brooklyn and moving all across the Atlantic side of the continent, including to Mexico, and ending with a SEGABABA in Dallas, the town in which I currently reside and a game I will attend. It will be a very difficult stretch that could make […]


Game 2: Pistons @ Wolves

Game two for the Wolves occurs in a comfortable setting at Target Center, and hopefully the stands will be packed and the energy level high. Last night was a toughie but a goodie. The highlight was easily the 2nd half bench stint which featured some outstanding minutes from Shabazz Muhammad, Gorgui Dieng, Anthony Bennett and […]


2014-2015 Season Opener: Wolves @ Grizzlies

It is officially official, we can now watch the Wolves in live, actual, crystal clear HDTV instead of grainy 1995 jumbo-tron/radio web links, complete with virus-laden car insurance ads shouting into your speakers at unpredictable times. We can now pause and rewind plays while anticipating what opposing teams’ announcers will laud the Wolves for now […]

Mike prepares to send a 4,000 word e-mail to Tim on how to properly build an NBA roster.

August E-Mail Bantering With Tim and Mike

An occasional series between two remote Wolves fans where they swap e-mails over a period of several days continues, offering 100% unique perspectives and Zach Lowe-level analysis of the Timberwolves. In this series, Tim makes perhaps the most preposterous statement on record in regards to the Wiggins trade, the 2 touch on their home lives, […]
