The Minnesota Timberwolves passed out this awesome infographic Monday morning on how ridiculous of a month Kevin Love had for this team. Considering much of that was down two starters, Love saw much more attention from the defense and still managed to pour in some historic numbers while keeping the Wolves as competitive as […]
“You knew the Kings weren’t going to go down without a fight…” – Dave Benz “I thought they might.” – Jim Petersen The above quotes, offered at the 8:00 mark of the 4th quarter by FSN North’s excellent play-by-play and color analysts, respectively, captured the mood perfectly for the Timberwolves.

It’s important for a professional sports team to have an identity, right? Maybe that’s a tired cliche, pushed by sports media types looking to fill columns, game recaps and hours of airtime.

The 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers are the sine qua non of awful by most standard measurements; their 9-73 win-loss record earned them the nickname the “Nine and 73ers” (which is pretty good, as far as nicknames go).

Some of the problems were expected – the Wolves struggle to generate stops late in close games, but they […]
