Come and get me

I made it so you could say Marcy and it was all good. I ‘aint cross over, I brought the suburbs to the hood. Made ’em relate to your struggle, told ’em bout your hustle. Went on MTV with du-rags. I made them love you. You know normally them people wouldn’t be f—ing wit you, […]

Precious Medals: Wolves in London

Well, show’s over, kids. The thirtieth Olympiad has concluded and gone with it are the hours of  equestrian, water polo, race walking and assorted moments in broadcasting cluelessness which left us fumbling for the remote. Of course scattered amongst the monotony were the reasons we actually watch; the worlds greatest athletes, having toiled for years […]

Wolves 117, Nuggets 100: Reset

Coming home after a long trip can be a bit disenchanting. The milk has spoiled and you can’t remember where you put anything. There’s nothing waiting for you but familiarity and more responsibility. Looking back on the luxuries of either friends and family or maids and anonymity, you almost have to ask yourself why you […]

Lakers 104, Wolves 85: Shaken, not stirred

These things happen. We can’t all be Kobe Bryant. In fact, these are the nights we wonder how Kobe Bryant is Kobe Bryant. He should’ve been in bed like the rest of us; wallowing in self pity and reaching for that second pint of ice cream. Instead, there he was, pirouetting into those patented fadeaways, […]

Wolves 92, 76ers 91: World of difference

It’s a shame to see all that Kevin Love does and wish he would do more. But watching Elton Brand dismantle him in the post probably made some of us do just that. Early in the first quarter, Brand recovered a loose ball at the elbow, sized up Love with a dribble between his legs, put […]

Feed the meter: Rubio v. Lin

You know, it’s odd that sports are still viewed as a monogamous endeavor. Franchises flee cities overnight, cut or trade players on a whim and will lock us out if they feel like it. Players, largely presumed available to the highest bidder, openly court new teammates and tease us with their decisions. Fans, having the […]

Kevin Love suspended two games

Well we all knew a fine or suspension was imminent. But now that it’s arrived, is it too much? As a point of comparison, remember when Andrew Bynum got two games for this?

Rockets 91, Wolves 100: Show your work

Let’s get the obvious out of the way. Objectivity is bullshit. Our perspectives are the result of prior experience, oftentimes influencing our decisions more than we understand. There’s nothing we can do about it other than be honest with ourselves. The past few years have led me to think Kevin Love is a nice guy. More […]

Lakers 106, Wolves 101: The vanishing middle class

Pau Gasol is tall. Not the gangly, awkward gaited ‘tall’ that defines so many of the league’s big men, but an unreachably high, arching fluidity that confounds even the best defenders. Kevin Love isn’t tall. So our friend Kevin was in for a long night. Gasol began by pump faking from the perimeter and driving […]

A new hope

The Lakers are in town and for the first time in a long time, circumstances have changed between these two teams. Our fair city is no longer just another pit stop on Kobe & Co.’s  championship tour, but a game the Wolves are legitimately favored in some corners to win. We had a chat with […]
