This is a scary thought to think, but the Minnesota Timberwolves may actually become a strong playoff contender for years to come. Blech, still felt weird saying that string of words. But it’s very plausible, as they now have a solid core of players to build around: Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love, Jose Juan Barea, and possibly the most important piece, Nikola Pekovic. Now before you e-mail my editor ordering him to can me because I said Pekovic was a more important piece than Rubio or Love, keep in mind that I am talking from a real basketball sense, not our sense of fake basketball which is based on other people playing basketball. In fantasy, Rubio and Love are the guys that will be going off the board early, but Pekovic will finally fill the T-Wolves void (Sorry to you *********** fans who googled “Timberwolves” and “filling voids” and ended up here, not that kind of site!) at center that has been polluted by Darko Milicic and co. since Kevin Garnett was shipped up to Boston.

It's been more than a year since Ricky Rubio signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves and began the evolution from European teen sensation to NBA star.

The Kevin Love Basketball ProCamp will take place Sept. 22-23 from 9 a.m. to noon each day at Eden Prairie High...
MINNEAPOLIS Think back, way back in the annals of recent sports history. Before Tim Tebow was a Jet and Kevin Love was an Olympian. Before a unibrow was trademarked and the Wild landed the two biggest free agents in the NHL offseason. It's before Lebron was a champion and Jeremy Lin was anything more than a Harvard grad.
Remember January 4? Probably not. It was the day the...
GAME WITHIN A GAME
Minnesota Timberwolves PG Ricky Rubio tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee back in March, causing the onslaught of out-of-nowhere T-Wolves viral videos to slow to a crawl. The good news today is twofold — Rubio is targeting a December return from injury, and he’s already started working on those viral videos.
His first effort: playing the classic vertical...

When Brandon Roy and the Minnesota Timberwolves reached a verbal agreement back in early July that the all-star guard would return to the game after spending last season in retirement mode, many pundits around the league wondered what Roy would look like once he got back on the court.
After five seasons in the league and the chronic knee problems, there still are a lot...

I present to you what is quite possibly the greatest thing ever invented... Connect Four Basketball (and Minnesota Timberwolves star point guard Ricky Rubio playing it): If Connect Four Basketball isn't at every Dave & Busters/other big sports bars/arcades in America over the next year, we've failed miserably as a country. I mean, seriously, if the choice were between...
