MINNEAPOLIS Kevin Love didn't want it to be like this.He wanted the cameras, but not like this. He wanted the questions, but not about this. He wanted the attention, but for something he'd done, not for everything he cannot.Nothing is more humanizing than an injury. It's amazing what that thin, removable cast can transform; an exemplar becomes just a bald guy in a folding...
Kevin Love says he understands the skepticism about the source of his broken right hand. The Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star, however, insists the story about knuckle push-ups gone wrong is true.
Love spoke publicly Wednesday for the first time since his injury, calling it ''pretty much a freak accident.''
He's heard all the conspiracy theories but said he really...
I thought the Pepsi MAX commercials with Kyrie Irving posing as an ::ahem:: older former baller named Uncle Drew were genius! Now we’re back with part two and it features more secret players in disguise as they take to the courts and hustle guys in pick up games. Check out the continuation as Uncle [...]

And then the Mavs won, 99-91, and Dirk Nowitzki tweeted from back home in Dallas: '1-and-0. As expected. On to the next one.'
And for one night, at least, the hill is protected. The hill is...
Last year the Timberwolves ended the season with a disappointing 26-40 record. Through the first half of last season the Wolves were led by their core of young players featuring Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, and Derrick Williams who at a certain point led them to a record above .500. But then things started going downhill when rookie phenom and floor general Ricky Rubio went down with...
Judging by their season opener, the Dallas Mavericks might thrive despite Dirk Nowitzki's lengthy absence.
After earning a road win over one of the Western Conference's presumed front-runners, the Mavericks will try to keep rolling Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz, who are hoping for a good showing from their newcomers as they begin their season at home.
