A crazy draft night led to the drafting of Kris Dunn, a slew of rumors, and an unclear future for Ricky Rubio with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The game looked bad early, but Andrew Wiggins didn’t want to lose.
Both Towns and Okafor have lived up to all their hype thus far.
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 […]
With the likelihood of a swap with Love-for-Wiggins at its core looking more likely, a lot of fans have apparently shifted their focus for the time being onto what else will come along with this trade exchanging proven superstar for potential superstar. The big problem with moving Love for a swingman is the enormous hole […]
How bad a team is — in linear terms — is relatively easy to measure. The 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers are the sine qua non of awful by most standard measurements; their 9-73 win-loss record earned them the nickname the “Nine and 73ers” (which is pretty good, as far as nicknames go). But although their season […]
Maybe the Wolves shouldn’t explore the Mozgov/Pek backup plan after all? In a game that was incredibly fast in the first half because of a lack of calls and completely bogged down in the fourth quarter because of 23 foul calls and 38 free throw attempts, the Wolves had to power through their first game […]
The Wolves, as we had sensed all season long and as Zach meticulously charted earlier today, have been a monumentally poor three-point shooting team this season. Poor enough to be mentioned along the worst three point shooting teams of the post-Rockets era; poor enough to evoke the memory of Nikoloz Tskitishvili. But though the phenomenon […]
The Philadelphia 76ers are a model franchise for the Timberwolves right now. Their best player isn’t widely regarded as a franchise guy but he is a player that sets the tone for everybody else. They’re fairly deep in terms of role players who can be effective on any given night. They’re playing great defense, explosive […]
See, this is what we’re talking about. Back at Truehoop, Chad Ford reports that the Sixers are willing to discuss moving that second pick, but only in exchange for taking on Elton Brand and his ridiculous contract. “As much as teams like the Minnesota Timberwolves, for instance, love Evan Turner,” says Ford, “I don’t think […]
