Attempting to analyze the chaos of a fake preseason

BREAKING NEWS: Sources say, Wolves went 2-0 in the preseason against the Bucks. So as we prepare for the Preseason Playoff series against the 2-0 Clippers, I thought I would share some notes I made on Wolves players from the two games we just witnessed.

Darko and Tolliver: Bosom friends

Now that the first two weeks of the NBA regular season have been cancelled, we can get back to focusing on what we’re all really here for: videos for black metal bands with only a coincidental relationship to basketball; recaps of ten-year-old playoff games; dispatches from the front lines of Kevin Love’s beach volleyball career. […]

Timberwolves 95, Grizzlies 104: is this desire?

Just what is going on with the Minnesota Timberwolves? The team is losing; nothing new to report there. But these recent bummers are unlike those December close calls, in which only late game meltdowns born of inexperience prevented the team from knocking off superior squads. No, these recent games are much less encouraging, much more […]

76ers 107, Wolves 87: Out of focus

With Hockey Day in full effect on Saturday, it left the local channels blistering with high school, college and professional hockey games while anyone hoping to catch a Timberwolves game against the 76ers with a poorly cropped, low definition broadcast from the Philly side of the telecast world. It shocks me when there are professional […]

Wolves 104, Hornets 92: We did what?

I don’t quite know how to say this. The Wolves didn’t blow a double-digit lead. I know that sounds crazy but hear me out. The Wolves turned the ball over nine times in the first quarter against the Hornets. Through a lot of missed shots by the Hornets, Minnesota left the first 12 minutes with […]

Anthony Tolliver taking his talents to the bench

There’s been another entry into the Wolves revolving door of injuries. As Martell Webster and Jonny Flynn make their way back from the mend, down goes Tolliver. Our friend Ray Richardson from the Star Tribune breaks the bad news. Minnesota Timberwolves forward Anthony Tolliver will miss the next 6-8 weeks to recover from a knee […]

Mess with the Bobcat and get the claws or something

No disrespect intended for the Charlotte Bobcats but the Wolves absolutely gave this one away. And it feels really good to say that. I’m not happy the Wolves lost by any means, but I’m extremely happy they were in a position on the road to have a game to put away. I don’t know that […]

Wade, Lebron and Heat simmer; T-Wolves burn

There was almost nothing surprising about the Miami Heat’s casual vaporization of the Wolves on Tuesday. (Well I guess that the Lebron/Anthony Tolliver faux-beef was a little surprising–since when do the oligarchs of our pop consciousness care about mild, self-deprecating parody?) A thirty point win seemed almost inevitable. Magnificent performances by Wade and James are […]

Wolves Sign Tolliver; Add Depth, Shooting And Comedic Stylings

The Minnesota Timberwolves have added Anthony Tolliver to the roster for a reported two years and $4.5-ish million. Or by the looks of the video Anthony put out there on Thursday, he’s chosen to take his services to Minneapolis. I actually love this signing because I think it provides some much needed depth to a […]
