Media Day Takeaways: Filtering the Substance from the Style

The Timberwolves held their Media Day on Friday, a few days earlier than what is customarily a Monday event. Because the team is traveling to China during this preseason (to play a pair of exhibition games against the Golden State Warriors) the league allows them to open training camp earlier than the other 28 teams. […]

Is the offseason over yet?

The Minnesota Timberwolves’ Media Day is Friday, and it can’t get here soon enough.

The NBA season is fast approaching and, with the Wolves’ roster nearly cemented and training camp just right around the corner, I figured now would be as good a time as ever to take a look at a few intriguing potential lineups.

The NBA’s Best Player Duos: Where do the Wolves rank?

The Timberwolves will likely be finalizing the roster in the coming days and/or weeks and the first preseason game is slated for September 30th against the Los Angeles Lakers in Anaheim. I figured now would be a good time […]

Wiggins, Towns, and “Two-Way” Play

At the Timberwolves annual Media Day in 2015, we were treated to Kevin Garnett holding court for about 25 minutes on a variety of subjects. As any NBA fan knows, opportunities to hear KG speak in depth are as insightful as they are rare. On this particular day — a sad one in one important […]

Roth and Roll: Iowa Wolves Hire New Head Coach

The Iowa Wolves finally got their man. The team formally announced Wednesday morning that Scott Roth will serve as the team’s new head coach, three months to the day after rebranding from the Iowa Energy to their newly minted moniker. Neato! It’s about time the Wolves G-League team had a commander in chief. But, uh, […]
