Selected quotes from Timberwolves Media Day, part one


The Minnesota Timberwolves held media day at the Target Center on Monday morning. In part one of a two-part series, Bill quotes Milt Newton, Sam Mitchell, and several players about what they expect from themselves and one another this coming season.

Is there anything there? Way too many words on the process of developing Anthony Bennett


How salvageable or lost is the cause of Anthony Bennett?

Wolves 112, Pistons 101: Keep on Truckin’

Ain’t nothin’ holdin’ me back nothin’ I’ll keep right on, right on truckin’ Ain’t nothin’ holdin’ me back nothin’ I’ll keep right on, right on truckin’ – Eddie Kendricks, Keep on Truckin’ Steph Curry and Kevin Durant launching heat check threes like trebuchets of fire is fun to watch. LeBron James and Russell Westbrook barrelling […]

76ers 103, Timberwolves 94: Organization and a plan

The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t been putting a great roster on the floor over the last two seasons. It’s been by design and it’s a risky proposition. It’s an idea that I’ve had, along with plenty of Wolves’ fans, when it comes to the rebuilding style of this Minnesota franchise. Strip down the roster, rid it […]

Thunder 92, Wolves 84: Vacations

The photo above almost certainly isn’t awe-inspiring to any of you; sure, there are mountains, but they aren’t very close, and there are some unsightly power lines in the way. Nothing about the image screams “vacation” or “good times.” Aesthetically speaking, it’s sort of mundane and dull, the sort of picture only a weirdo like […]

Rebuilding the Wolves: Vol. 1 or Vol. 11… One of those

It’s safe to say the Minnesota Timberwolves won’t be making the playoffs for the 11th straight season. With a record of 5-29, the Wolves sit just 2.5 games ahead of the New York Knicks and are tied with the Philadelphia 76ers for the second worst record in the NBA. The Knicks have played four more games than […]

Report: Timberwolves to sign Miroslav Raduljica

Yesterday, Shams Charania of reported that the Wolves are in the process of giving Serbian big man Miroslav Raduljica a guaranteed contract for the remainder of the season. While the team’s primary beat writers (Jerry Zgoda and Jon Krawczynski, to name a couple) have yet to confirm the report, Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN said […]

Heat 102, Timberwolves 92: Living LaVine-a-Loca

In two weeks, the Minnesota Timberwolves will reevaluate Ricky Rubio’s ankle. He’ll be on crutches during that time and then we’ll see how the swelling and ligaments are progressing. Optimistically, I’d say the Wolves are looking at a four-week recovery overall for the significant/high ankle sprain, and six weeks may even be the more likely […]

Timberwolves 98, Nets 91: Stopping By Barclays on an Autumn Evening

The Timberwolves jumped out to a hot start in last night’s game, which is not actually new. Last season, Minnesota boasted an offensive rating of 111.1 and a defensive rating of 101.1, good for a Bo Derek-approved net rating of 10.0. The problem, of course, was in the fourth quarter, where they only mustered a […]

Wolves fall to Grizzlies 105-101, but good things happened!

The Timberwolves fought to the final seconds tonight, but couldn’t get over the hump against a borderline top-tier Memphis Grizzlies squad. Mid-broadcast, Dave Benz mentioned the Grizzlies haven’t won an opener since they moved to Vancouver. It was a tough 105-101 loss, but it’s important to remember the quality of competition that the Wolves were facing tonight, […]
