Ricky Rubio is still hitting jumpers and eventually that might mean something.
One big no-call led to the Wolves crumbling. What if…?
Ricky Rubio sitting out, Zach LaVine as a point guard, going under screens, and hypnic jerks? It’s a Wolves’ “game recap.”
S/o to the rookies for singing me “happy bday” after a great win against #Pacers. @heslip @glennrob3 @zachlavine8 @22wiggins A video posted by Ricky Rubio (@ruuufio) on Oct 10, 2014 at 8:55pm PDT The poorest effort the Wolves showed all night was at the end of the above video, when the rookies’ version of “Happy Birthday” […]
I feel like every time I write about this matchup between the Wolves and Pacers, I end up with the same recap. This is a terrible matchup for the Wolves. I don’t think they have too many bad match-ups at this point in the roster construction process. Put them against most any team in the […]
The Wolves’ street-clothes squad boasts a pretty impressive resume. You’ve got multiple All-Star appearances, a Defensive Player of the Year, a former Most Improved Player candidate, even some MVP votes.

There were a couple of hilarious things off to the side on George Hill’s step-back 3-pointer to tie the game and […]

That doesn’t sound like much, but if you’re a Wolves’ fan of long standing you know the thrill in the blood induced by those simple words. Great defense isn’t truly […]
Ah yes, Gerald Green. I remember him. The stunningly talented, emotionally immoderate young wing the Wolves landed in the Kevin Garnett haul. The slam dunk champion at the exact moment of the contest’s baroque low-point. The totally vacant defender. The unconscionable gunner, preening and exultant after making a jumper and inconsolable after missing. More recently, […]
Mike Brown ruined my day and I forgot about this preview. Well, I guess Mike Brown didn’t ruin my day. It was more the Lakers’ fault. When Brown got fired, I was prepared to post this preview, head to the gym, and keep the revolution moving on in Assassin’s Creed III after I played some […]
