2014 Draft Analysis and the Country Club Factor

Another Wolves draft, another bad pick, another set of Country Club undertones. We will get to that shortly. Let us do the typical-thing-that-every-Wolves-blog does and provide detailed analysis of each pick as if we have seen the selection play hundreds of times, rather than judge a smattering of YouTube clips at the last minute (come […]

The Best Option: Keeping Kevin Love

Ed Note: This is a contribution from Nick Robinson that I am posting on his behalf. You can follow Nick on Twitter at @RobinsoNick2013 Minnesota Timberwolves fans: it’s been a rough tenure since Kevin Garnett has left. Almost 7 years after The Big Ticket’s departure, there’s another crisis on our hands. Kevin Love is unhappy. […]

Wolves 2014 Offseason Preview

It has already been a month since the season has ended for the Wolves, which puts the offseason at roughly 16% complete at this point if you count the pre-season as being “part of the year.” If you want exact percentages or feel a need to nitpick the math here, kindly go give David Kahn […]


What to Make of This “Love Drama?”

Peter Vescey confidently claimed last night Love has demanded out of Minnesota Surrounding the trade deadline, there are always rumors flying around. Every player in the Association has gone through them and if you listen to the players, it can hamper their play. In Minnesota, we have one of the biggest question marks in the […]


January Wolves E-Mail Bantering

The last two weeks have been very difficult for Wolves fans. Tim and Mike vented about it through e-mail, made an all-time Wolves novelty roster, Mike admitted he owns Troy Hudson's rap album, and they generally made themselves more upset talking about the state of the team. These are their stories. Mike: I am not […]

Finding Alexey Shved   Let's take it back to the offseason heading into the 2012-2013 season. David Kahn, the European 'recruiting mastermind', as he'd like to refer to himself as, signed Andrei Kirilenko from CSKA Moscow (a European basketball powerhouse). AK-47 spent the year in Moscow during the NBA lockout and Kahn brought him over the pond […]

A Look at Win Shares and the Wolves Roster

Very well then. The Wolves are once again one game under .500, suffering yet another loss in a close game situation, making the team now a stunning, 2009-Wolves-esque 0-9 in games decided by four points or less. This is not a playoff team folks, and should the dice roll in such a way to allow […]

Kevin Love Can’t Do It All For Minnesota

Kevin Love is tearing up the Association this season. The dude is playing like he had thousands of haters and people saying he'd never come back to the double-double machine that he once was. We've all heard it, in casual conversations about knuckle push-ups, as Wolves Nation still cringes their teeth. K-Love has done nothing […]


12/4 Wolves in Mexico

Tonight the Wolves face the Spurs in a "home game" in Mexico City, Mexico. As if the schedule couldn't be any more brutal. The Wolves will have their work cut out for them as well, as the Spurs as surging again despite the fact that everyone on that team is 85 years old. A few […]

Brooklyn Night Class: The Report Card

As expected, the Timberwolves cruised to victory against Kevin Garnett and the seemingly dismal Brooklyn Nets. This was a refreshing performance in many ways by the Wolves, soundly beating on the Nets early. They got off to a great start on both sides of the floor, taking Brooklyn out of whatever game plan that sorry […]

Clippers and CP3 Show that Rubio Has Long Road Ahead

Tonight was a huge test for this Timberwolves team. A week ago this squad went into Staples Center and almost defeated the Los Angeles Clippers, formally known as Lob City. This wasn't just a big test for this Wolves squad, but also for Minnesota point guard Ricky Rubio as he faced off against Chris Paul for […]

11/19/13 Wolves/Wizards Preview

The Wolves continue their absurd schedule tonight, after finally getting an extra night of rest, with a dreaded 4 games in 5 nights stretch as a reward, and their 3rd and 4th back to backs of the year. To add salt to the wound, each of the "-to backs" are against Western Conference contenders. Stern's […]

Wolves Weekend: Denver and Boston Ahead

It would be easy to say that the Cleveland game was an anomaly, but it really wasn’t. OK, building a 39 point lead against a team that is supposed to contend for a playoff spot, while shooting near perfect from the field, may end up being the highest point differential the Wolves achieve this season, […]

11/11/13 Wolves/Clips

You heard it here first: last night the Wolves trounced the Lakers and earned a blowout victory, Rubio scored a triple double, and a 22-game, 6-ish year streak came to an end. Fantastic game. But a little bit less satisfying than beating the Lakers at "full strength: (read: Kobe in the lineup, surrounded by the […]
