What a glorious sight… Ricky is running again

Mark Remme of tweeted this afternoon a photo of Ricky Rubio running during the Wolves’ practice. With Ricky running now and eventually starting up some light basketball drills, we should be able to find out just how realistic our dreams of a late December return as a Christmas present to us really is.

Kevin had a LOVEly offseason… get it? His last name is Love.

Kevin Love showed off his gold medal today during a press conference at the Target Center. He broached many topics from what the experience meant to him this summer to how he feels about the team heading into this year, Pekovic’s new look, and his nerves for throwing out the first pitch of the Yankees-Twins […]

Sweet Lou Amundson on his way to town

Oh well now this is getting hilarious. Just as we embark on an epic conversation regarding the meaning of the Wolves very whiteness, “the intensifying agent in things the most appalling to mankind,” the team goes ahead and signs olde Lou Amundson to a one-year deal at the veterans minimum, reports Chris Tomasson of FOX […]

Ricky got challenged to a Connect Four basketball version in carnival game form by the host, and he […]

Wolves remaining options to round out the roster

There were reports about a week ago that the Wolves were working out Hassan Whiteside for one of their final two roster spots. They’ve also been linked to trying to bring back Anthony Tolliver or reaching out toward veteran Mehmet Okur to bring in some much needed depth to the interior. My initial thoughts are […]

That time I went to Michael Beasley's house and bought a framed Yale poster

As some of you made have read on RandBall Monday, Michael Beasley had an estate sale. Instead of moving his stuff from Minneapolis to Phoenix, he decided to put that new $18 million contract to use and just buy new stuff for his new home. After moving just a couple of miles at the beginning […]

Early projections for the Wolves

Since there is nothing happening in the NBA world for about another month (when training camps will open their doors), a lot of people are now projecting how the NBA standings will finish up for the 2012-13 season. Personally, I’m not huge into preseason predictions because so many things can change throughout any moment of […]

Ricky Rubio back in December?

It’s pretty improbable that he’d be back for the start of the regular season, considering he hasn’t started doing many exercises with heavy impact (i.e. – running and basketball related workouts/drills). That would […]
