With the 58th pick, the T'Wolves select Robbie Hummel.

Robbie Hummel, small forward from Purdue University. I’m not sure what you’re supposed to do with a 58th pick. Do you grab someone you can stash away in Europe for a couple of years? Do you essentially pick a guy that can develop in the D-League for you? Is there a way to address a […]

What to expect from the 2012 NBA Draft?

That’s a good question. With the Wolves now in possession of a competent wing player and the 58th pick, there really isn’t much commotion on the surface of our draft waters. We can assume that the feet are paddling furiously beneath the surface, but as of right now everything seems calm. What are the options […]

Wolves Chase for a Bud…inger player? WORD PLAY!

Wolves have taken themselves out of the 18th pick fiasco that I babbled about yesterday by dealing it to the Houston Rockets for Chase Budinger and the rights to Lior Eliyahu. The Eliyahu aspect of the trade shouldn’t really matter. He’s a good athlete that really can’t shoot or do much with the ball. I […]

Crunching Roy numbers shines a little light, no?

Our friend Darren Wolfson at ESPN 1500 has reported that the Wolves are going to offer Brandon Roy a two-year contract and that the money is not known. I don’t even know if I’m ready to deal with the idea of Roy’s knees actually being healthy enough to be a serviceable player in the NBA. […]

Befuddled by the process

The Timberwolves are confusing me. There are some things we know for sure: – This team plays at the Target Center. – They currently have a team with two star-quality players in Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. – Rick Adelman is the head coach. – Glen Taylor is the owner. – David Kahn is the […]

A roster of Wolves: Derrick Williams

Some players drafted second overall in the past decade or so: Darko Milicic; Michael Beasley; Stromile Swift; Hasheem Thabeet. Marvin Williams: a perfectly fine player and all but is markedly less fine when one considers that he was drafted ahead of  both Chris Paul and Deron Williams. Yes Kevin Durant and LaMarcus Alridge were second […]

A roster of Wolves – Martell Webster

Martell Webster’s season will most likely be remembered with agonizing humor. His blunder at the end of an overtime loss to the Denver Nuggets on February 20th was a frustrating mistake that potentially cost the Wolves a victory when the season still had life. He stole an inbound pass from Julyan Stone with the Wolves […]

A roster of Wolves: Wayne Ellington

The plight of Wayne Ellington was befuddling to many Wolves fans throughout the season. We were a team full of shooters who could no longer shoot. After blistering the NBA with 3-point baskets when down double digits in 2010-11, the Wolves either regressed to the mean, had a lockout-induced outlier, or thought the new CBA […]

A roster of Wolves: Brad Miller

Brad Miller’s swan song wasn’t a feel good Disney movie that ended up leaving everybody with a warm tingly feeling. He didn’t give us the John Salley in Eddie where he squeezes every ounce of game out of his scar tissue-addled knees to help bring this team the playoffs after years of down-and-out malaise. Brad Miller was […]

The 2012 AWAW Draft Board: 1st Edition

We are 23 days away from the NBA Draft and we’ve already seen the Wolves invite 26 different players into Minneapolis to have a gander at what they can possibly add to this organization. For the most part, we’ve seen players that probably aren’t good enough to be taken with the 18th pick in the […]
