Eight Minnesota Timberwolves “What Ifs?”

If anyone has read the new Bill Simmons Encyclopedia The Book of Basketball, you know there is a chapter discussing several “What if?” scenarios in NBA history. While that chapter serves as loose inspiration for this write-up, a Wolves-themed “What if” article is something I have been considering for quite awhile. As it turns out, […]

Worst Timberwolves Team Ever?

The Minnesota Timberwolves haven’t had the most successful of histories, and that’s putting it lightly.  So when somebody comes out and says that this current Timberwolves squad is THE worst ever, that’s a pretty big claim.  After all, if this season continues on it’s current pace, you’re going to need a third hand to count […]

Boston 92, T-Wolves 90: Taking Positives from a Negative

The Timberwolves lost to the Celtics 92-90 on Wednesday night, an entertaining game spoiled only by the outcome. Let us, however, ignore that for a moment. Let’s put aside some of the silly turnovers and mistakes in the fourth quarter, as well as the usual blatantly poor end-of-game refereeing that’s the harbinger of any close […]

The “Cheering for the Other Team” Target Center Phenomenon

Few things cause an irreversible gag reflex quite like a melodramatic sports article inspired by infomercial-purchased NBA championship DVD’s and musical scores from such sports movie classics as Rudy and The Mighty Ducks. We all know that “the Wolves are coming, but it will only take 3 more years.” We all know that “United We Crawl Run” We all know […]

Far Too Long…

It has been a long time since I’ve been genuinely excited about the start of a Timberwolves season.  The year was 2005.  We had just cleansed ourselves of the Sam and Spree cancer, had a new coach, a lottery pick in Rashad McCants, an “up and coming point guard in Marko Jaric.  It was time […]

T-Wolves 95, Nets 93: Wilkins putback completes comeback

Damien Wilkins got a putback basket to drop at the buzzer after a Jonny Flynn miss, giving the Timberwolves the two-point, buzzer-beating Opening Night victory.  The bucket completed a Minnesota comeback from a 14-point deficit with 6:39 to go in the game, after the Wolves had trailed by as much as 19 in the second […]
