We’re kicking off our offseason coverage here at A Wolf Among Wolves with a comprehensive roster review of the team from this past season, looking at how each player’s 2014-15 went and what we see for them going forward. One player (or group of players) a day for the next couple weeks, starting with the […]

Wolves trade Corey Brewer to Rockets for Troy Daniels, picks

Reports surfaced about a week ago that the Houston Rockets were determined to use their $8.4 million trade exception by December 19th. When they struck out on Rajon Rondo, they turned their attention elsewhere, which apparently meant Corey Brewer. Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to confirm what Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN and Jonathon Feigen of […]

Ronny Turiaf out for remainder of 2014-15 season following hip surgery

“Warrior of light” Attentive you shall be Gotta keep it tight Stir the ship right With the help of a compass The storm too shall pass Fog will dissipate Struggle you will terminate To the shore you will arrive The rain, storm, snow, you will survive Accompanied by the almighty Through it all promised is […]

Talking About Practice: First Day of Training Camp

KABOOM. Goodbye, Internet. A video posted by Steve McPherson (@steventurous) on Sep 20, 2014 at 8:02am PDT I wasn’t prepared for how interesting watching an NBA team practice was going to be. When the assembled media was granted access to the Timberwolves’ first day of training camp for the last half hour, we filed in […]

Positional Previews: The Bigs

With media day and training camp just two days away, and the first preseason game less than two weeks away, we finally have a (mostly) set roster. Now that the Timberwolves have announced the names off their official training camp roster, the first attempt at a post-Kevin Love era has more or less taken shape. […]

Roster Review: Ronny Turiaf

We’re kicking off our offseason coverage here at A Wolf Among Wolves with a comprehensive roster review of the team from this past season, looking at how each player’s 2013-14 went and what we see for them going forward. One player a day for the next couple weeks, starting with the bench and rolling up […]

Timberwolves 102, Grizzlies 88: Havin' a Ronny

You know that friend every group seems to have with the infectious existence? It doesn’t matter what is going on with the group, if that person has an energy about them, it will emanate to everybody else and they’ll adapt to fit said energy. If that infectious friend smiles, everybody around them smiles. If that […]

Timberwolves 95, Bulls 86: Understanding geometry

There was a point early on in the Wolves’ win over the Chicago Bulls in which Kevin Love was struggling. He wasn’t playing poorly but he was having trouble finding his way to the free throw line against Taj Gibson and Nazr Mohammed. The struggles against Taj Gibson aren’t anything new for Love, or anybody around the league really. […]

Ronny Turiaf out indefinitely with a fractured radial head in elbow

The thud you heard at the 10:17 mark of the second quarter in Friday night’s blowout victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder was Ronny Turiaf fracturing the radial head of his right elbow. When a missed Jeremy Lamb missed a push shot in the lane and Ronny Turiaf went up for the rebound, Nick Collison […]

Lose to Moscow, defeat Canada: Effort is needed for world domination

I tried. I really tried to churn out some thoughts on the Wolves losing to CSKA Moscow on Monday night and just nothing appeared. The effort was there for me trying to write about what was an on-the-surface embarrassing loss to a really talented Euroleague team. But ultimately, I just didn’t care enough about the […]
