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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Wolves Get Great Deal For Love

Ed note: This is a submission from Nick Robinson, who has been a periodic contributor to this site. BY NICK ROBINSON rushthecourt.net Well, Wolves Nation, say one final goodbye to Kevin Love. What a run… NOT. Let’s thank David Kahn for this, literally. Thank the knuckle push-ups. We can think “What could have been?” or […]

Analyzing the Love for Wiggins Landscape

Please note that the following post is going to be rather dry. It is, in fact, a dry part of the year in terms of NBA news, weather, and overall body hydration so let’s assume any and all summer blog postings will remain a loose metaphor of this period in the NBA timeline. If you […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Meeting the Mad Dog

There’s something particularly special about pro sports when you’re a kid. The players are all older than you and you get to look up to them and dream about being like them someday. Then somewhere along the way you get to be in your early 30′s like I am, and suddenly these people that you […]
