Wes Johnson and Martell Webster make the list

It seems only right that Martell Webster (231, 4.06) and Wesley Johnson (245, 3.91) are paired so closely together on #NBARank. They are, after all, the two Wolves left standing from David Kahn’s Summer 2010 swingman shopping spree. One irony of this fact is that of the three fellas vying last season to be the […]

California Love: Wes Johnson to represent Wolves in Rookie Challenge

It’s not the news we’ve all been holding our breath for, but it’s worth celebrating nonetheless, right? Despite his recent struggles, our rangy forward has earned himself a place amongst this year’s All-Star festivities. So here’s three cheers for Wes Johnson. Mostly because he doesn’t like twos. Or free throws, for that matter…. I kid, […]

Wings and prayers: Johnson and Webster scuffle

Here’s an interesting thing David Kahn said in his FSN live chat on Wednesday: I think we have too many wing players and it may be something we have to address, if not before the deadline then certainly next summer. The concept was we would create a lot of competition for playing time in practices […]

Timberwolves wings: an unsolved riddle

Of the many by turns illuminating and inscrutable tidbits I dug up in the past few weeks while doing research for the Truehoop post, this was among the most glaring: the Wolves’ situation on the wing is a true riddle, a strange machine, filled with moving parts and missing pieces. Let’s start with what we’ve […]

Lakers drown Wolves

Surely this is a tired angle, but it’s true nonetheless. If there was ever promise to be shown in a 17 point loss, last night our Wolves managed to do so against the Lakers. Moral victories may not appear in the standings, but they do provide the necessary motivation to push through a rough schedule […]

Wesley Johnson plays with the grown-ups

It really shouldn’t be surprising that the fourth pick in the NBA draft is playing well. I mean, there’s probably a reason people thought he was really good, right? But when it comes to the draft, we Wolves lovers have gotten used to taking solace in what other people take for granted. After all, we […]

Hawks Soar, Wolves Still Learning to Fly

Well, we pushed and they pushed back. The Wolves ended the first half on a 14-5 run against the Hawks only to relinquish the ground they gained in a 11-21 run to open the 3rd quarter. Then in a fervent scramble to prevent another blowout, our pups scored nine unanswered, cutting Atlanta’s lead to just […]

Team Chemistry Is Still Something The Wolves Are Working On

Wes Johnson and Kevin Love are new teammates. Things are not always going to click. But they seem to be willing to work through the awkwardness and eventually do what they need to do to be better teammates. (Via – Guyism) You guys will get it eventually. Keep working. Share this because Rubio would pass […]

Wes Johnson Welcomed to the NBA Politely by Luther Head

It was nice of Luther Head to give Wes Johnson a kind greeting into the league. After a turnover in the second quarter against the Kings, Sebastian Telfair  did his Through The Fire thing by throwing a pass that probably looked better in his mind than in reality to a streaking Wesley Johnson on the […]

Timberwolves 2010: youth in revolt

Death and decay are two inexorable facts of life. Everything gets old; everything wilts and fades; everything dies. We’ve been dealing with this for quite a while now.  We U.S. Americans, though, are becoming practiced in the art of forgetting these facts. We’re smitten with newness and youth.  This is maybe the great appeal of […]
