Grizzlies 92, Timberwolves 77: Hand dryers are the worst

I generally hate using hand dryers. Whenever you hit the button or you turn it on using some Jedi-type stuff, if you’re not seeing ripples in your skin then the blow dryer isn’t going to be good enough to dry your hands in a reasonable amount of time. A hand dryer like the one you […]

NBA GMs still confound us, which is to be expected

The annual NBA GM survey was released on NBA.com today and as per usual, it’s kind of confusing in places and complimentary in others. The Wolves were mentioned quite a bit throughout the survey of the 30 GMs around the league, and you know it was outside forces voting nice things about the Wolves because […]

Wolves amnesty Darko for Batum's offer sheet

It’s officially official that Darko Milicic is no longer a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The team used it’s one time amnesty provision during the life of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement to rid themselves of his cap number and roster space so they could have the room to make the 4-year, $46.5 million offer […]

A roster of Wolves: Darko Milicic

By way of reviewing this strange season, we here at A Wolf Among Wolves are going down the Wolves roster, discussing each individual player’s season and their outlook for the future. We’ll start with the man in the suit, Darko Milicic. *         *         * Back in October, while we were all still whiling away the […]

Hollinger on the new old Timberwolves

You know things are really turning around at the Target Center when John Hollinger—who up to this point had been known to Wolves’ fans for serving up incredulous, though generally reasonable, critiques of the Kahn regime—is giving props. Hollinger points out a rather amazing element to the Wolves’ fortunes: drastically increasing a team’s win total […]

Wolves 95, Clippers 94: Strategery

Apologize for the late recap post but we had some issues with the site yesterday, and I’m just now able to get it posted. As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve been absent from recap duties and other postings on this site the past week because I was out of town. I went […]

Wolves 109, Clippers 97: Night of the Living Potential

“Hanging around. Hanging around. Kid’s got alligator blood. Can’t get rid of him.” – Teddy KGB. It starts with a run. The Clippers came out of halftime, inexplicably only up three points and looking to put this game away early. A layup from Randy Foye drops in. Blake Griffin hits a jump shot. Randy Foye […]

It's time to Pek a fight

Watching the Indiana Pacers punish the Wolves with physicality the other night made me a little jealous. The Pacers want to punish you. They want you to feel their presence every second of the ball game. Stop-n-Pop at Canis Hoopus put it beautifully when he said: The Pacers entered last night’s tilt with a single […]

Timberwolves 101, Clippers 98: Astronomy Domine

Against the Clippers, the Wolves did at least three things that they haven’t done consistently for years. They: came back from a double-digit deficit in the second half when it appeared that the game was slipping away; made poised, aggressive plays down the stretch; executed a last shot out-of-bounds play–and actually made the shot. (In […]

Timberwolves 87, Cavs 98: their eyes were watching Wolves

Ok, so the thing about being the darlings of the NBA, the “League Pass team of the year,” is that everybody is watching when you serve up an uninspired, low-energy stinker to Cleveland, at home, on Friday night. Everybody sees the gaping suck of confidence that is the Michael Beasley and Wes Johnson wing tandem […]
