Sweet Lou Amundson on his way to town

Oh well now this is getting hilarious. Just as we embark on an epic conversation regarding the meaning of the Wolves very whiteness, “the intensifying agent in things the most appalling to mankind,” the team goes ahead and signs olde Lou Amundson to a one-year deal at the veterans minimum, reports Chris Tomasson of FOX […]

Wolves tried to get downtown but missed their connection, and other public transit metaphors

The Wolves’ 3-point shooting last season was pretty atrocious. Despite being 23rd in the NBA in 3-point percentage, the Wolves just kept chucking up shots from long range. They finished sixth in the NBA in attempts from downtown, even when you adjust for pace. Perhaps one of the reasons the Wolves kept shooting them was […]

Wolves remaining options to round out the roster

There were reports about a week ago that the Wolves were working out Hassan Whiteside for one of their final two roster spots. They’ve also been linked to trying to bring back Anthony Tolliver or reaching out toward veteran Mehmet Okur to bring in some much needed depth to the interior. My initial thoughts are […]

Crunching Roy numbers shines a little light, no?

Our friend Darren Wolfson at ESPN 1500 has reported that the Wolves are going to offer Brandon Roy a two-year contract and that the money is not known. I don’t even know if I’m ready to deal with the idea of Roy’s knees actually being healthy enough to be a serviceable player in the NBA. […]

A roster of Wolves: Anthony Tolliver

Anthony Tolliver is one of the nicest, most earnest, least self-important professional athletes you will ever hope to meet.  What’s more, over the past three years, he’s poured remarkable quantities of energy and passion into some of the more hopeless NBA teams imaginable. Even when his coaches have neglected to actually coach defense (see: Nellieball), […]

Wolves 88, Bobcats 83: Been there, bro

You know what’s kind of crazy? Kevin Love finished this game with 40 points and 19 rebounds last night, including 14 in the fourth quarter to close out the worst team in the NBA, and it’s probably his third best game of the week. The level of production and play Love is throwing at our […]

Still gasping: More on Wolves and Thunder

The Timberwolves are professional basketball players; moving on from tough losses is part of the job. The Wolves have four games in the next five days, two of them on the road, three of them against probable playoff teams. They’ll just have to figure it out. Still, its hard for me to imagine how they’ll […]

Wolves 97, Warriors 93: Mega Love

I’m not the biggest video game nerd in the world, but I used to go nuts over playing Mega Man. There was something so captivating about a guy in a little blue, pixelated suit, trying to shoot Kix cereal at bad guys coming at you from right to left. Maybe I was just a huge […]

Wolves 93, Pistons 85: It's time to galvanize

Potential is stupid. I have discussions with basketball fans every night on the Daily Dime Live chat on and every night I read comments about how good several young prospects in the league are going to be. There’s nothing wrong with being excited about what could happen in the future. As a Wolves fan, […]

Raw power, the Rubio edition

Wolves fans, you know as well as I do that this could all go away. These past years of nauseous disappointment have taught us that just when things are starting to look promising someone could, say, sign a backup power forward to a series of illegal under-the-table contracts and poison the whole party. But right […]
