TrueHoop Network Mock Draft Pick 2: Wolves select Derrick Williams

The 2011 ESPN TrueHoop Network NBA Mock Draft is here and I’m more than glad to represent the Wolves with the second pick. Each selection will be made available on network sites, will cover just the first round, and will be made according to prediction, not some blogger preference. Enjoy. Previous Pick: Check back hourly […]

Derrick Williams drops science

Photo by Kevin Trotman You should check out this hugely dorky but also kind of cool video about Derrick Williams’ three-point shooting. Under laboratory conditions and using a “high-tech basketball” we find that Williams catches and shoots in .8 of a second, which puts him in the company of deadeyes like Kevins Durant and Martin.

With the second pick… the Wolves have options

Whether you believe or not the NBA Draft Lottery was rigged to screw the Wolves, ending up with the second pick might not be the worst thing that could have happened to them. In fact, I believe it’s the best thing that could have happened to David Kahn and Associates. Grabbing the number one pick […]

Second City: Wolves land the number two pick

Well the draft lottery was hard to watch and not really because of any smoldering tension or desperate hope that the Wolves might land the number one pick. It was tough to watch the network’s attempts to manufacture suspense with their endless teasers and makeshift narratives; it was tough to watch the nervous, serious men; […]

Timberwolves run the numbers

Photo by greengardenvienna Hey friends, been enjoying watching the playoffs? And by that I mean: been enjoying watching the two teams that began rebuilding at approximately the same moment as the Wolves (the Grizzlies and the Thunder) play each other in the conference semifinals? I know I have–and I’m not just saying this to be […]

Broken Windows

My partner and I have made our stance on rumors quite clear. It’s more prudent to provide worthwhile analysis of the developments at hand than to frustrate both ourselves and our readers with idle speculation. There is a distinct difference between foresight and hindsight. The time has come for the latter. David Kahn was roundly […]

Pity Party

The Timberwolves’ draft party seems like it would be kind of fun. Hang out with a bunch of people, watch some huge TV’s, drink some beers, get pumped up for your team’s future. All of those things were there, but the proceedings were, from the start, inflected by the Wolves’ star-crossed history. Within two minutes […]


“You’ll never make me stay, so take your weight off of me. I know your every move, so won’t you just let me be. I’ve been here times before, but I was too blind to see that you’ll seduce every man, this time you won’t seduce me. You’re saying, “That’s okay, hey baby do what […]

Nice Dreams

It’s on, homies. The Timberwolves our right now facing the biggest night of the post-KG era. Lets not fool ourselves with predictions or pipe dreams. The truth is, nobody knows what’s going to happen. All we can do is allow the questions to loll about in our heads, to face that essentially Timberwolvian sensation of […]
