Let’s see what Australian artist Chris Edser has in mind for Zach LaVine’s dunk contest Saturday night.
Kevin Love sat down with ESPN Radio to talk a bit about his experience of being voted in by the fans, Minnesota’s struggles, the rumors swirling about his future, and who’s manning the phones at Love Dial these days. Listen to the interview here, transcription below.
12-year-old me and present-day me probably would not agree on all that much. He desperately loved Cinnamon Toast Crunch and the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and wearing extremely puffy pants with your best silk print shirt, whereas I do not. And I might not have been able to convince him of the benefits of getting […]
In last night’s Rising Stars game, Ricky Rubio put on a passing display that had the internets a blazing. He also went 5-hole against DeMarcus Cousins before finding Blake Griffin on the alley-oop. Big ups to Derrick Williams for not trying to Greg Monroe the end of this play. There was also this pass to […]
From Marc Spears, Derrick Williams will join Chase Budinger, Paul George and Iman Shumpert in the dunk contest on February 25th. Maybe he can bring Derrick Brown D.J. White out as a prop?

The Denver Nuggets have been an impressive collection of talent for quite some time. Carmelo Anthony remains one of the league’s premier scorers, Nene’s reliability is criminally underrated and J.R. Smith-the very personification of this volatile unit-is dynamite in sneakers; wildly unstable, yet effectively explosive. Unfortunately, the same carefree demeanor that’s allowed them to fill […]
Maybe this will help lift Ben’s spirits? Justice has been served and Kevin Love is officially an All Star. Der Komissar delivered the good news before last night’s tilt versus the Raptors and the STrib’s Jerry Zgoda was kind enough to spread the word: Rambis stopped Martin from starting his scouting report and told everyone […]
Well the Western Conference coaches have made up their minds about the All-Star reserves. You can check them out here. One thing you might notice is that Kevin Love is not among those listed. I know that just this morning I prepared us all for this eventuality, and it was certainly gratifying to hear Charles […]
