Derrick Williams: Make or Miss League

Is Derrick Williams a bad player who doesn’t belong on the Timberwolves? The growing sentiment with an impatient fan base seems to be yes, he is. And that’s what we are right now; it’s an impatient fan base because the biological clock of Kevin Love’s potential early termination option is ticking like a time bomb. […]

Wolves 90, Mavericks 82: "I don't use crutches"

Rick Adelman became a broken record last year. Someone for the Wolves would go down with an injury and he’d start talking about how guys couldn’t feel sorry for themselves and had to step up. They had to make the most of their opportunity to help the team. Ricky Rubio went down with his ACL […]

Hilarity at the end of the Wolves-Pacers game

I needed to wash away the stank the Chicago Bulls defense put on the Minnesota Timberwolves last night so I decided to check out the final moments of the Pacers-Wolves game from Friday night. There were a couple of hilarious things off to the side on George Hill’s step-back 3-pointer to tie the game and […]

Wolves 107, Nets 96: Reactions and grades

I really can’t believe the comeback that happened tonight for the Wolves in Brooklyn. Without their two best players, Minnesota went on the road, got down by 22 on unbelievable shooting from the Nets, and still managed to pull out a victory.

Apparently, there is a big difference between playing a Keith Smart coached team and playing a Dwane Casey coached team. The Wolves were disgustingly careless with the […]

Wolves 95, Pistons 76: Energy around a focus

This is what effort looks like. This is also what the difference between playing a top defense and a young team that struggles at defense looks like. The payoff is somewhere in between these two realities. Yes, the Detroit Pistons are a bad team and it’s preseason. These are all things to take into account […]

Wolves 84, Pacers 70: Hello, new friends

It wasn’t a pretty preseason opener in many ways, but the Wolves got to debut some new faces and beat up on an incomplete Pacers team for the victory. Between the poor 3-point shooting, the grainy Fargo television feed coming through NBA League Pass, lots of turnovers, and a lot of missed free throws, it […]

The sky is falling… upward? TRANSACTIONS GALORE!

OKAY! A lot has happened over the couple days and now we’re getting a better idea of the way this roster could look heading into next season. After missing out on Nicolas Batum (when evil Paul Allen wouldn’t let him go despite Neil Olshey wanting to let him go or at least work out a […]
