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 […]

What Went Wrong & What Now

40 wins. Some were blow-outs, a few were nail biters, and nearly none of them seemed certain.    42 losses. Most were agonizing, many were demoralizing, and some were embarrassing. 10th in the Western Conference. Two spots out of the party that is the NBA playoffs. So close but, oh so far.    Woof. Sad […]

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 […]

Looking Forward Once Again

I admit the second half of this Wolves season has been a major disappointment. The team didn’t come together. Ronnie and Chase came back but they didn’t have the impact I imagined. Ronnie has played great when he is healthy and Chase even showed promise before his latest injury. Injuries to Nikola Pekovic and Kevin […]

OH YEAH! The “NEW” New Forum

Hey guys, As most of you know, after the big Bloguin migration to the new platform, we tried setting things up with a native forum solution that integrated seamlessly with the platform.  The prior version of the forums had grown old and out of date and just wasn’t a salvageable option long-term.  However, the native […]

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

http://youtube.com/watch?v=J9Goh-nW0dA   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 […]

Beginning the Second Act: Pack of Hungry Wolves or Stray Dogs?

  On December 27th in the star tribune Kevin Martin is quoted saying that the season actually starts after Christmas. Kevin Love mentioned how the wolves need to get back to their winning ways. For me, these quotes are tough to hear. What winning ways? A 13-15 record is not awful, but if the season […]

Musings

As the Wolves await the tip late this evening with the L.A. Lakers, it's baffling to look at the league standings and see that Toronto holds the eighth seed in the east with a winning percentage under 40%, while these struggling LA Lakers, coming in with a winning percentage of .480 would be slotted in […]

Motor City Night Class

  So here we go for round two of the report card. Night class was in session today in Detroit.  To recap a game that wasn’t recapped here on twolvesblog.com, the Wolves stank against Miami. In an unfortunately fitting way, the wolves followed my “Fire & Ice” post, by performing at their iciest ever. Of […]

Fire & Ice: a 2013 Timberwolves Reality

  From the bone chilling cold of a Minneapolis Winter day to the heat of a Mexico City arena fire, the 2013 Timberwolves have experienced extremes with relation to temperature. But not only have they experienced this in a physical sense. Truth is, this years Twolves team is a "fire and ice" team. An exaggeration […]
