Found March 19, 2014 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
During his time as President of Basketball Operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves, David Kahn was often criticized on many of the decisions he made in trying to reshape the franchise. While many basketball minds look at Kahn’s time in Minnesota as a failure, he still is able to make a name for himself and be looked at as someone with wisdom to offer on the subject of decision making in business. New York University is offering a deal making class with Kahn as the professor for $750. Check out the class description below: In this intensive weekend course, students will be immersed in the concept of dealmaking, with special emphasis placed on lessons learned in real-life deals from the world of sports, entertainment, and real estate. They will gain a deeper understanding of the key steps required to put together a deal, including building relationships, preparation tactics, identifying what’s important for the other party and how to deliver it, learning when to say no, and understanding that the renewal period for the deal starts the moment it has been completed. This three-day, intensive is designed for anyone interested in the art of the deal, including business leaders, administrators, and executives in dynamic fields that involve personal interaction. Now that Phil Jackson is in New York, maybe he can drop by the class and learn something. *** Kahn image courtesy of Getty Images

Ricky Rubio dishes behind-the-head assist to Gorgui Dieng

Looking for the assist of Thursday night in the NBA? We got it here for you here on That NBA Lottery Pick.

Despite Dieng's 20-20 night, Wolves can't stop Rockets

The Timberwolves' opportunistic rookie center did it again Thursday night at Houston's Toyota Center.

Forced into duty with injured Nikola Pekovic and Ronny Turiaf on the shelf, Dieng became the first rookie in the Timberwolves' 25-year history...

Wolves 5’10″ PG J.J. Barea Attempts Put-Back Dunk (Video)

  Minnesota Timberwolves point guard J.J. Barea is a feisty little guy who doesn’t back down from anyone on the court. Although he’s listed at six feet by many sites, one look at him and it becomes clear that that isn’t the case (His momma says he’s 5’10″). So it was kind of surprising and funny to few players when he attempted a put-back dunk during a game versus the...

But when the Timberwolves needed a closer, they turned to their other franchise...

Each one conjures a different memory of his maternal grandmother, who authored and illustrated...

A post to Instagram of a woman’s manicure highlights nails that are intended to resemble Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love and Oklahoma Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook.

Kevin Love Hits Game-Winner to Beat Mavs in OT (Video)

Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio are quite the dynamic duo, it’s just sad that future team success for both players will come on different teams.
