Spurs 107, Wolves 99: Welcome Back.

The Minnesota Timberwolves fell to the San Antonio Spurs 107-99 Wednesday night in a game that played out almost exactly as many thought. The Wolves’ offense was rusty, the defense was at many times haphazard, and the Spurs played with a fundamentally soundness and veteran savvy that has become synonymous with their #brand. Despite playing without […]

Maybe Waiting to Sign the 5-Year, $148 Mil Deal is in The Wolves’ and Wiggins’ Best Interests?

As of writing this article, Andrew Wiggins has yet to put pen to paper on his 5-year, $148 million contract extension with the deadline of October 16th looming ever closer. The course to getting this thing signed has been a curious one, involving Wiggins firing his (former) agent Bill Duffy after he had negotiated the […]

Who is the Wolves’ Number One Option?

“Obviously I think I’m a great scorer and that I’m a great weapon. I think of myself as the number one option. We all think we’re the number one options. Not in a selfish way. It’s more that we just know what we can do.” The above quote provided by Andrew Wiggins to 538’s Chris Herring has […]

Wolves 111, Warriors 95: Wolves Win in Shenzhen

The Wolves defeated the Golden State Warriors early Thursday morning, though only technically. The final score of the first of two NBA Global Games preseason games (a few regular season games will be played in Mexico City in early December and in London in January) ended up 111-95 in favor of the Wolves, but 1. […]

A Few Intriguing Potential Wolves Lineups

The NBA season is fast approaching and, with the Wolves’ roster nearly cemented and training camp just right around the corner, I figured now would be as good a time as ever to take a look at a few intriguing potential lineups. I emphasize “potential” because, although some have a higher likelihood to appear consistently […]

The Strengths and Weaknesses of Jeff Teague

On July 1, 2017, just a few ticks past midnight Eastern Standard Time, the Minnesota Timberwolves quickly moved on from the Ricky Rubio era, a time defined by its unmaterialized everlasting hope, and leaped head first into the era of Jeff Teague, fourth banana on a (hopefully, probably) playoff team. It was a move met […]

AWAW Mailbag: Late Offseason Edition

It’s September. The doldrums of the late offseason are upon us, but, alas, they’re almost past! The Timberwolves will likely be finalizing the roster in the coming days and/or weeks and the first preseason game is slated for September 30th against the Los Angeles Lakers in Anaheim. I figured now would be a good time […]

Roth and Roll: Iowa Wolves Hire New Head Coach

The Iowa Wolves finally got their man. The team formally announced Wednesday morning that Scott Roth will serve as the team’s new head coach, three months to the day after rebranding from the Iowa Energy to their newly minted moniker. Neato! It’s about time the Wolves G-League team had a commander in chief. But, uh, […]

On Nemanja Bjelica and Justin Patton’s Foot Injuries

The Minnesota Timberwolves had a pretty healthy 2016-17 season all things considered. Nikola Pekovic missed the entire season due to recurring ankle pain and Zach LaVine tore his ACL on a freak play in early February, but perhaps the most under-discussed (and now the most important since Pekovic retired and LaVine was traded) injury is […]

Minnesota Timberwolves Unveil Icon and Association Jerseys

In a much-anticipated move, the Minnesota Timberwolves unveiled two of their four new jerseys Thursday morning. The remaining two jerseys will be released at a later date. Nike, who has taken over jersey operations from Adidas for the 2017-18 season and beyond, has done away with the traditional home and road uniform and has replaced them with four jerseys that […]
