Found July 22, 2012 on PRO HOOPS CENTRAL:
It is that time once again for one of our more popular features here on PRO HOOPS CENTRAL, “The World According To New York Vinnie.” This is where I tell you how things would be if Your Old Pal New York Vinnie was in charge of things. Now most of the changes I propose in this feature would truly make the Planet a better place to live; however they are either too “Politically Incorrect” or make too much ”FRICKIN” sense for them to ever become reality. If it was up to New York Vinnie we would have no drug laws on the books; to me it is a victimless crime as long as you can afford them and stay away from driving a vehicle. If you have the means to pay for it and you do not put yourself in a position where you endanger anyone else you can drink ”FRICKIN” Sterno and snort ”FRICKIN” Comet as far as New York Vinnie is concerned! It’s your ”FRICKIN” life you want to throw it away that is your “FRICKIN” choice. Now that being said; we all live by rules no matter what we do in life.

Wolves' Williams eyes assurance this summer

LAS VEGAS I know I can play.I know I can play.I know I can play.Say it once, and it's a statement. Twice, it's emphasis.

LAS VEGAS The Timberwolves wrapped up their five games in Las Vegas on Sunday with a 97-91 win over the Grizzlies, holding on in the final minutes to end the week with a 4-1 record.
