Hoo boy. Perhaps I should have put it, “T-Wolves players butcher ‘N Sync’s ‘Tearing Up My Heart’, ear bleeding ensues,” but no need to split hairs. Referred to as “Pack Karaoke,” the video stars Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love, Anthony Tolliver, Wes Johnson, Michael Beasley, Martell Webster and Nikola Pekovic trying their darnedest to reach deep [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
The best part? The record Minnesota Timberwolves rookie point guard phenom broke in Orlando during early All-Star Weekend festivities — according to the NBA, it was “Guinness World Record” but I cannot confirm that (mainly because I’m lazy) — was that the previous record stood for about an hour, as Evan Turner of the Philadelphia [...]
Just minutes after Philadelphia 76ers guard Evan Turner sank 14 shots from behind the backboard, setting a Guinness World Record, Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio snatched the honor away.
In Orlando for an All-Star weekend Rising Stars shootaround Friday morning, Rubio lined up with the basket in front of him and to his right and sunk 18 shots in 60 seconds. That was four better than...
It was one of those leads embarrassingly large in a game that means little which is a breeding ground for cockiness, and the NBA couldn't have picked a better GM to hold that lead.
Charles Barkley reclined on the sidelines at the Amway Center in the second half of Friday night's BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, his team holding a lead it never once relinquished before going...
We’re not really sure what Minnesota Timberwolves guard Martell Webster was doing on the floor at the end of the game to begin with, but we doubt he’ll be there ever again.
With his team down by three to the Denver Nuggets and 4.9 second left on the clock, Webster miraculously stole the Nuggets’ inbounds pass. With a chance to be the hero, Webster raced down the court and instead...
Ricky Rubio went to the playground during tonight’s NBA Rising Stars game. Rubio took down a long rebound and started to take the ball up court. As he was doing so DeMarcus Cousins got in his way so he dribbled the ball through Cousins open legs like he was at the Rucker. After that he continued down court tossing an easy alley-oop pass to Blake Griffin.

The one magical thing about the NBA is that it can bring people of all walks of life together and amaze the younger generation.During a recent Minnesota Timberwolves game, Fox Sports North interviewed a young three-year old fan named Chase and got the inside scoop about how much he likes the Timberwolves along with that hamster:(Courtesy of The Basketball Jones)
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio set a world record Friday morning by making 18 shots from behind the backboard in less than a minute.
MINNEAPOLIS Three members of the Minnesota Timberwolves -- Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio and Derrick Williams -- arrived Thursday in Orlando to participate in NBA All-Star Weekend. After a day of travel, interviews and photographs (and maybe a minute or two of relaxing), the festivities begin Friday in full force. A look at the events in which you can watch and cheer for Love, Rubio and...
Hey Martell Webster? Congratulations, sir. You have just earned a significant spot on America's favorite podcast, THE BOZOS OF BASKETBALL. Way to go.

Check out this video clip of the Minnesota Timberwolves tearing up your eardrums with a karaoke session featuring *N Sync's "Tearing Up My Heart".
Key questions here:
I sort of figured that Martell Webster would have a good voice, but he just dances with his pseudo-punk hairstyle here.
Michael Beasley is the highlight... in fact, I think it is he, rather than Ricky...
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz have both fallen below the .500 mark.
Only one of the clubs will be able to even its record before the All-Star break.
The Timberwolves and Jazz look to regroup Wednesday night in Minnesota in their final game before this weekend's festivities.
After leading by as many as 14 points early, Minnesota (16-17) saw its three-game winning...

We’re late due to technical difficulties (read: couldn’t get past the L’s velvet rope), but here we are live and direct at the Sprite All Star Celebrity Game 2012. So far, the crowd has reacted loudest to Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino, so, there’s that, but that won’t...
