Timbertrolls are ready for the Year of the Wolf

If you don’t know the Timbertrolls yet, you should get yourself acquainted. They’re the masters of fun Timberwolves memes on the internet and they make some of the best .gifs, videos, and photoshops about this team. This is a great example of what they do. Follow them on Twitter at @timbertrolls. Share this because Rubio […]

Kevin Love's "Double-Double" SportsCenter commercial

Kevin Love got his own This Is SportsCenter commercial as the barista who makes the best double-double espressos. Stan Verrett is pumped about it! (Via Mark Remme at Share this because Rubio would pass this along:

Ricky Rubio gets the triple dipper like it's Applebee's up in here

I know Steve is going to have a great recap for you tomorrow/today, but I thought I’d throw up the video highlights of Ricky Rubio’s first career triple-double just because this stuff is fun to look at. 21 points (one off his career-high) on 9-of-17 shooting, 13 rebounds (career-high), and 12 assists. And most importantly, […]

The Ricky Rubio project: An assessment of scoring

Over the next few days on A Wolf Among Wolves, I’ll be breaking down the play of Ricky Rubio since he’s returned from his ACL surgery last March. When Rubio came back on December 12th against the Dallas Mavericks, we all wondered how long it would take him to regain his form. In an attempt […]

Kevin Garnett's Top 10 plays of his career

The NBA’s YouTube page is releasing the top 10 plays of a bunch of All-Stars’ careers and Kevin Garnett was one of the first guys they did. I know it’s not totally cool to still love KG because he barks at people and he was mad at Glen Taylor and stuff, but he’s still probably […]

Ricky Rubio's assists against the Atlanta Hawks

Let’s break them down, kids. It’s pretty incredible how Ricky sets guys up with the simplest of passes. Derrick Williams has been pretty great about setting his feet over the past 15-20 games and really looks like a good spot-up shooter out there with Rubio. Rubio mentioned after the game that he’s looking to make […]

Alexey Shved highlights from the win over the Thunder

Alexey Shved notched the first double-double of his career with 12 points, 12 assists, and he even grabbed seven rebounds too. He shot well from 3-point range and turned the ball over just one time. I’d say it was the best game of his short career, considering the match-ups he had throughout the night and […]

Hilarity at the end of the Wolves-Pacers game

I needed to wash away the stank the Chicago Bulls defense put on the Minnesota Timberwolves last night so I decided to check out the final moments of the Pacers-Wolves game from Friday night. There were a couple of hilarious things off to the side on George Hill’s step-back 3-pointer to tie the game and […]

JJ Barea warned for flopping; next one is a paddlin'

JJ Barea has been warned by the NBA for a flop against the Sacramento Kings. Jimmer Fredette was dribbling toward the right side of the floor, put his forearm up to clear space from Barea, and was whistled for the foul as Barea snapped his head back. This is what I like to call “JJ […]

Wolves 84, Pacers 70: Hello, new friends

It wasn’t a pretty preseason opener in many ways, but the Wolves got to debut some new faces and beat up on an incomplete Pacers team for the victory. Between the poor 3-point shooting, the grainy Fargo television feed coming through NBA League Pass, lots of turnovers, and a lot of missed free throws, it […]
