MANKATO, Minn. -- Kevin Love's resentment toward last year hasn't faded. But he left his willingness to dwell on it somewhere on the beaches of California this summer. "It's October, what, second? Third now?" Love said after Day 2 of training camp Wednesday in Mankato, his voice sharpening with the beginning stages of fury. "It's still 2013, but I've moved on." Rather than rehash his displeasure at David Kahn's handling of his contract, injuries that kept him out for 64 games of a dismal 31-51 season and the direction of the entire Timberwolves organization, Love's turned his gaze toward foci more within his grasp. A new year. And a new Love. The high-scoring, board-crashing power forward is expected to once again provide the scoring punch Minnesota greatly lacked with him and most of its core sidelined at different points throughout 2012-13.

Wolves' young players holding their own in training camp practices

MANKATO, Minn. -- Corey Brewer hobbled to the Bresnan Arena baseline to chat with reporters Wednesday, his torso and both legs wrapped heavily with bags of ice -- the size you'd buy from Holiday to keep a 12-pack chilled. Kevin Martin eased back into a first-row seat behind the basket in similar pain after a 3 -hour, Rick Adelman-instituted workout. Kevin Love spent a good 15...

Wolves rookie Muhammad crashing offensive boards

His team’s most acclaimed player almost all his life NBA rookie Shabazz Muhammad now finds himself well down the Timberwolves’ order of possibilities so much so that a player formerly infatuated with scoring has used training camp’s first two days accomplishing the little things instead. That includes trying to prove he’s the best offensive rebounder on a team with Kevin...

Jeffers overcomes odds for shot with Wolves

Bullets whizzing past his head, Othyus Jeffers picked up the stroller carrying his young niece and rushed her into the house. He hurried back out the door to help his sister, who had been shot in the leg by her then-boyfriend during a domestic dispute. She looked at her brother, dressed in joggers' pants from Illinois-Chicago University and his trademark Jordans, which almost...
