What are the concerns with Brandon Roy?

35 minutes per game, huh? Brandon Roy mentioned his goal was to become a 35-minute per game player and Twitter seemingly exploded with incredulity. Personally, I didn’t get what the reaction was because it seemed like he was pretty clear in how he shaded the situation: “I think, even before I had any knee problems […]

This is the Wolves' latest signing.

No big deal. It’s just Andrei Kirilenko on a jet ski next to a pig. I’m so excited for Wolves’ Media Day.  (H/T — @_V_W) Share this because Rubio would pass this along:

2012 Las Vegas Summer League Scattered Thoughts: Final Edition

Final two games of the Wolves’ Summer League ended in wins, giving the Wolves a 4-1 record for the summer and a berth into the Las Vegas playoffs. Wait, they don’t have Summer League playoffs? The wins aren’t so important as the quality of play from the guys on the roster are. The two players everyone […]

2012 Las Vegas Summer League Scattered Thoughts: Volume 2

In between learning the intricacies of Blackjack Switch and rifling through a karaoke song book, I observed some Derrick Williams domination that was a welcome sight to see. Wolves beat the Cavaliers by… well… who cares? The actual game results don’t matter. In fact, I’m not sure you can even say the play of the players […]

2012 Las Vegas Summer League Scattered Thoughts

I never got to watch the first game of the Wolves’ Summer League campaign when they beat the Clippers, but I was in the building for the loss to the Bobcats Monday night.

Portland is matching Batum; remember our time with him.

The dream is over. Batum’s offer sheet will be matched by the Blazers and the Wolves now have to figure out what Plan B is for this team’s offseason. We’ll miss you, Nic. Share this because Rubio would pass this along:

Batum's offer sheet official; the wrangling proceeds

After much anticipation, it’s now official. The Wolves have submitted an offer sheet for Nicolas Batum, a four year deal worth $46.5 million, giving the Blazers three days to either match the deal or allow Batum to leave. The move caps off a week that featured much wrangling and even more ill-feeling between the two […]

Wolves amnesty Darko for Batum's offer sheet

It’s officially official that Darko Milicic is no longer a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The team used it’s one time amnesty provision during the life of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement to rid themselves of his cap number and roster space so they could have the room to make the 4-year, $46.5 million offer […]

A roster of Wolves: Nikola Pekovic

When is the last time this organization had toughness? Perhaps Kevin Garnett wasn’t the epitome of a bar fight — despite what he may have blurted out at Craig Sager — but he at least feigned an attitude of some mental toughness, whether he was actually ready to risk a suspension or not. But pure […]

Vote Kevin Love. Vote now. Vote often.

It’s ESPY season and much like the People’s Choice Awards or Nickelodeon’s Awards show… or… you know… the All-Star Game, the PEOPLE are the ones that decide who is honored with the hardware. You can go to this link on and it will look like the picture above. Click on Kevin Love’s picture and […]
