The Wolves defeated the Golden State Warriors early Thursday morning, though only technically. The final score of the first of two NBA Global Games preseason games (a few regular season games will be played in Mexico City in early December and in London in January) ended up 111-95 in favor of the Wolves, but 1. […]
The good news is that basketball games are back. If Media Day is the first time that we get to see and listen to Timberwolves players, last night marked the first time we actually got to watch them compete on the floor against a different team. The bad news, of course, is that it was […]
Andy G: First things first: Why hasn’t Wig signed his deal yet? Is he waiting until he’s injured first? Patrick J: Great question. Wiggins unexpectedly fired his agent, Bill Duffy, in late August after Duffy had negotiated a five-year, $148 million maximum contract extension for his client.

If someone made a few threes in a row, he would catch literal “fire” with the ball surrounded by flames any time he touched it. Defenders with “turbo energy” […]
After striking out on the open market, Bazz returns to Minnesota on a 1 year deal.
On July 1, 2017, just a few ticks past midnight Eastern Standard Time, the Minnesota Timberwolves quickly moved on from the Ricky Rubio era, a time defined by its unmaterialized everlasting hope, and leaped head first into the era of Jeff Teague, fourth banana on a (hopefully, probably) playoff team. It was a move met […]
