Wolves Updates 12/18 Part 2

Steve Aschburner/ writes that Craig Smith has made his NBA Second-Round All-Star Team: The encyclopedia tells us that a rhinoceros is characterized by his large size, his herbivorous diet and a thick protective skin, which in Smith’s case is check, check and double-check…      Canis Hoopus on the top five-player combinations from NBA’s Lenovo […]

Wolves Updates 12/18

From Britt Robson/On The Ball: In a perfect world, Telfair would continue to thrive, and Foye would come off the bench a la Manu Ginobili. The Timberwolves’ world is nearly the opposite of perfect, but this Telfair character is doing his part to prolong the fantasy.          Clips Nation hosts the second week […]
