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

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 […]

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 Nikola Pekovic’s Injury History

With Summer League and the exciting portion of free agency behind us, I figured now would be as good a time as any to dive into the injury history of one of Timberwolves’ fans most beloved players: Nikola Pekovic. Pekovic’s history is extensive and complex and I attempt to highlight just that. Built like the […]

The C.J. Miles-OKC Pick Conundrum

Ever since the beginning of the free agency period last Saturday, one wing’s name has arisen time and time again by Wolves’ fans and writers alike: C.J. Miles. Miles, the former Indiana Pacer who would be the square peg to the Wolves’ square holes, is a dynamic three-point shooter and valuable defender who can switch […]
