Rashad McCants Is an Island

If you haven’t already done so, it’s worth your while to check out Chris Palmer’s ESPN The Magazine piece on just why it is that our old pal Rashad McCants, despite his electric skills, can’t find a job in the NBA. The article is fairly illuminating for us fans who watched the slow car crash […]

Enter Ridnour

Here in Minnesota, we love ourselves some point guards. In the last two years, Jonny Flynn, Ricky Rubio, Nick Calathes, Ty Lawson, Mario Chalmers, Kevin Ollie, Sebastian Telfair, Randy Foye and Ramon Sessions¬† have all, at least momentarily, sported the hometown blue-ish and green-ish (and black, plus a little silver). And now, Luke Ridnour is […]

B-Easy Speaks

The Wolves welcomed Michael Beasley into the fold yesterday. Watching this video, especially in comparison to the goofy, somewhat childlike performance he put on as a draftee, one gets the clear sense that B-Easy has been through a lot in the last two years. We’ll see whether that’s a good thing or not. Also, although […]

Wolves Sign Luke Ridnour: See You in June, Miami Heat

After trading Al Jefferson to the Utah Jazz for two first-rounders, a newfound $25 million or so in cap room, and a chance to give Michael Beasley some serious burn (by the way, Kevin Love says, B-Easy or no, he’s not feeling another year of sixth-man limbo–anybody know how this is gonna work?) David Kahn […]

Big Al on the Brink

Things are happening to Al Jefferson. Last night Marc Stein reported that the Wolves were still haggling with Dallas over a possible trade of Big Al for Erick Dampier, or more accurately, Dampier’s huge, non-guaranteed contract. But because of Dallas’s desire to unload Deshawn Stevenson, Matt Carroll and their significantly less amenable contracts on whomever […]

A King at Night: Lebron Steals Away

As much as possible, I’ve tried to stay away from covering the Lebron spectacle. The deluge of speculation, self-aggrandizement and misinformation was just a little too hot and gooey to hold onto, especially for a venue as concerned with semi-forgotten former number 2 draft picks as we seem to be. But as I indicated below, […]

Lee is Gone, the Beasley Era Dawns

Well, the Timberwolves’ David Lee flirtation is over, as the former Knick has agreed to a sign-and-trade with the Golden State Warriors. Chad Ford reports: Lee’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, told that Lee has agreed to a sign-and-trade worth $80 million dollars over six years with the Golden State Warriors…The deal will send Lee to […]

Free Agency Bullets: Thursday I'm in Love (with Luke Ridnour)

Things are happening everybody. Did you guys know that Lebron James was a free agent this summer? Wow, he’s probably going to make a lot of money, almost as much as Joe Johnson even! In any case, it seems that Lebron’s decision will have an effect on David Lee’s eventual destination. And although Golden State […]

David Lee: the Rumors, the Windmills

By now we all know that David Lee has visited with the Timberwolves. He was “really impressed” with the Wolves and believes that we have a “beautiful city,” with “very nice people”. I’ve heard that about us. We’ve also been told that the Knicks and Wolves are discussing the possibility of a sign-and-trade with Lee […]
