We made predictions earlier in the week, and now we’re judging our predictions. Join us in a roundtable?

Timberwolves 112, Bucks 108: “I could go for another quarter, here”

Towns Wiggins

Much of the Timberwolves’ preseason, save for the occasional highlight, was forgettable. Last night was a breath of fresh air.

Positional Previews 2015 – The Wings


The previews roll on with a look at Andrew Wiggins and the rest of the Wolves’ wing core coming into the season.

AWAW Roundtable, Volume One: Should Kevin Martin be a starter, or the sixth man?

Martin 1

The whole crew got together to discuss Kevin Martin as a sixth man, Sam Mitchell as head coach, which of the old guys will play the most, and which player has the most to prove during training camp.

Selected quotes from Timberwolves Media Day, part two

Towns Media Day

The Minnesota Timberwolves held media day at the Target Center on Monday morning. In part two of a two-part series, Bill quotes the loquacious Kevin Martin, a stoic Ricky Rubio, and the rest of the Timberwolves’ roster that wasn’t covered in part one.

Timberwolves 111, Suns 109: Stuck Between Stations

Limbo, thy name is the first game after the All-Star break with one more to go before the greatest player in franchise history returns as a kind of éminence grise for a rawly talented but still rebuilding team.

Positional Previews: The Guards

Remember the year the Timberwolves drafted 4 point guards in one year?  Even though (#welltechnically) two of them were used as picks for another team in a trade that was already agreed to, while another stayed in Spain for two more years. Remember how, despite the insistence from anyone who looked at the roster, the […]
