Shatter The Backboard:
Man oh man. The Timberpuppies just can’t seem to catch a break. In case you missed it, Wolves superstar Kevin Love will miss 6-8 weeks after breaking his right hand at his home on Wednesday. I’d blame all of the team’s recent bad luck on some sort of KG curse, but that’s not even logical.
The Wolves failures and string of bad luck has existed basically since the first day they came into existence. Even the best team in history, the Cassell/Spreewell/KG tandem in ’03, lost Cassell and then a red-hot Troy Hudson for the majority of the Western Conference Finals against a Lakers team that had Shaq, Kobe, Malone and The Glove.… Read more

WHITE'S THE PROBLEM HERE
There isn't a whole lot of diversity on the T'Wolves roster these days, and critics are now wondering out loud if this was done intentionally.
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...
MINNEAPOLIS The stigma isn't there yet, or perhaps it's receded. Maybe it's both, past and looming, but right now, Derrick Williams has a unique window. Last season, Williams was one of three former No. 2 picks on Minnesota's roster. It was he in 2011, Michael Beasley in 2008 and Darko Milicic in 2003. This was hardly the company a highly touted rookie wants to enter...
Greg Stiemsma never got tired of the grind last season. It took the Randolph, Wisc., native too long and too many miles to get to the NBA for him to start whining about the physical demands of the sport.
Now the proud owner of a multiyear deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Stiemsma has not lost sight of where he came from. While he signed autographs as part of...
MINNEAPOLIS -- After their final preseason game Friday, the Timberwolves waived two players, Mike Harris and Chris Johnson. Both were training camp invitees.The roster now stands at 15 players, with point guard Will Conroy the only training camp invitee remaining. With Ricky Rubio out until January, retaining Conroy makes sense. He's played well this preseason and is a close...
MINNEAPOLIS The countdown stands at four: four days until the Timberwolves open their season against the Kings on Friday. They're one of the last teams to debut this year, and Friday's matchup will in fact be the Kings' second game they open up in Chicago on Wednesday which will give the Timberwolves plenty of time to rest and plan.Whether that's too much time...
