A crazy draft night led to the drafting of Kris Dunn, a slew of rumors, and an unclear future for Ricky Rubio with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Running through the rumor mill, trying to find things to ramble on about.
A trade that is almost definitely NOT going to happen has officially made it into the rumor mill. Breaking down what it does and doesn’t mean.
Andrew Wiggins, Ricky Rubio, and Karl-Anthony Towns keep the Wolves perfect on the road.
How bad a team is — in linear terms — is relatively easy to measure. The 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers are the sine qua non of awful by most standard measurements; their 9-73 win-loss record earned them the nickname the “Nine and 73ers” (which is pretty good, as far as nicknames go).
