Their record stands at just 4-8, but the Minnesota Timberwolves have gotten off to a respectable start to their 2011-12 season.
The hard to watch blowouts are a thing of yesteryear, while nail biting conclusions have become a common occurrence.
The product on the court is much improved from last year’s squad. The coaching staff has proven to be an immense upgrade as well.
While Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio regularly fill up the box score; center Darko Milicic has not.
Milicic has seen significant struggles on both ends of the floor, but it has been his utter lack of motivation that has grown problematic. The same can not be said about fellow center, and backup, Anthony Randolph.
Milicic and Randolph took rather similar routes to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Darko was drafted second overall in the 2003 NBA Draft, and struggled to see the floor– let alone get regular playing time– in his 2 plus seasons with the Detroit Pistons. Darko then spent time in Orlando, Memphis, and New York bef...

Hey, you. Were you in Minneapolis last night around 7 p.m. Central Time? Did you go see the Timberwolves play the Kings in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day showdown at Target Center?
Well, boy, does Kevin Love have a deal for you. The Minnesota All-Star forward is putting together another crazy year statistically -- averaging 25.0 points per game and 14.6 rebounds per game ...
Entering his first season as coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Rick Adelman figured he would have a former point guard shooting the ball extremely well for him from the shooting guard position.
Why wouldn’t he think that? The Timberwolves gave former Dallas Maverick undersized combo guard J.J. Barea a 4-year deal worth more than 19-million dollars during the condensed 2011...
Minnesota’s Luke Ridnour got credited with an assist on this play with Kevin Love, and Love points like it’s an assist… But was it really? Or was that a terrible, bail out shot that just happened to fall? You be the judge.
MINNEAPOLIS - Ricky Rubio has arrived on these shores and in the past month has received the kind of...
Let us all shed a tear and dump a 40 out (if you're Grumpy, it's probably Vernor's or Metamucil) as the college football season officially comes to a close. Since Tuesday's are going to be wide open now, today I'll discuss a subject...
