Larry Brown Sports:
We’ve seen these YouTube proposals to professional athletes such as Ricky Rubio and Tim Tebow before. But never before have we seen one that reaches the sleazy and high-potential-for-a-cold-sore level that this one has.
That frizzy-haired and wanton lass in the (possibly fake) video below bills herself as “Mrs. Irrelevant” and has one mission and one mission only: to sleep with the last pick in this year’s NFL Draft. It’s pretty much the only thing somebody about to join the Colts can look forward to at this point.
“Whoever is this year’s Mr. Irrelevant is going to have himself a night … alone … with me,” she seductively declares. “And our time together, I guarantee you, will be anything but irrelevant.”
Sounds a lot more fun than a parade in Newport Beach.
I say, instead of that old dude, we have this chick announce the last pick in the draft.

In comparison with the past couple of seasons, the Timberwolves have actually taken a step forward this year. In 2010 and 2011 (both 82-game seasons), they won less than 20 games. This season with the shortened schedule, Minnesota has won 26 games with one left to play. However, they have been atrocious since March when Ricky Rubio was lost for the season with a torn ACL. The Wolves...
MINNEAPOLIS The NBA lockout stole Derrick Williams' rookie season.
There were a lot of ways he could have reclaimed it: better shooting, more attentive defense, even a vague hint of consistency. Williams is certainly to blame for at least part of his struggles this season, but there's no getting around what the lockout took from him.
The second overall pick in the 2011...
MINNEAPOLIS In Minnesota, he's known for plaid shirts and flat-brimmed hats, for the plastic bags of soda and water he totes out of the Target Center after most games. He's imposing in his silence, and when he laughs, it's hard not to wonder what joke you've missed.
Brad Miller might seem like an enigma, but he's not. He's a personality.
After 14 seasons...
MINNEAPOLIS After Sunday's 93-88 Timberwolves' loss to Golden State one that saw the Timberwolves up 55-34 at the end of the second quarter J.J. Barea was frustrated.
Just 10 months removed from a championship in Dallas, perhaps Barea's unfamiliarity with consistent losing pushed him to say what he said. Or maybe he's just independently competitive; maybe it takes...
Rick Adelman says he did not have a problem with J.J. Barea's comments that some Minnesota Timberwolves didn't care enough after a recent loss.
Without naming names, Barea blistered some teammates after the Wolves blew a 21-point lead and lost to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. The veteran guard said there weren't enough players in the locker room who cared about...
I know the last few years have been down-right dreadful for fans of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Our last few draft picks (Wes Johnson and Derrick Williams) haven’t panned-out, so far or yet. But, Ricky Rubio brought a spark this season before his ACL injury. He lit-up Target Center with his maestro passing skills and non-matador-esque defensive ability that most of his teammates...
