The Ricky Rubio Files: Revisitado

To start this off-season’s player profiles, I feel it’s essential to review and amend my attempt at this same project from last October. Most of The Ricky Rubio Files largely remains applicable. That article speaks for itself. Unfortunately, what is no longer applicable, isn’t exactly any more positive than before. This year, I’ll toss in some additional comments with reference...

Minnesota Timberwolves sign Andre Miller

Playing 16 years in the NBA is, in a word, sweet, but for Andre Miller, seventeen years would be a more satisfying ending. Apparently, the Minnesota Timberwolves feel the same way. In a message relayed by his agent to the Associated Press, Miller has agreed to play for the Minnesota Timberwolves on a one-year deal worth the veteran’s minimum. While the addition of Miller brings...

Cox/Getty Images North America) By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… Contract: One season, minimum The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed veteran point guard Andre Miller to a one season contract. It is odd to me for a re-building team to sign a point guard who is 39, as I think they should be trying and get as young as they can, but I like this...

The Minnesota Timberwolves bring Andre Miller in for a meeting

The Minnesota Timberwolves have Ricky Rubio and Tyus Jones as their two point guards right now. That's not bad, but it doesn't mean they aren't in the market for a third option who can come in and run an offense until Jones is ready, or in the event Rubio gets hurt. Enter Andre Miller?Miller is 39 years old and turns 40 in March—not the ideal age for an NBA free agent.

He stands in the shadow of the draft's past two No. 1 overall picks: Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns.But Rubio is arguably the most important player on next year's team, the starting point guard who plays like a wizard and makes everyone around him better. Here's a look...

What We Can Learn from 497 Andrew Wiggins Field Goals

One of my favorite things about the NBA offseason is that YouTube highlight channels like Down to Buck are forced to get really creative. For example: all 84 dunks from Blake Griffin’s season, or all 118 dunks from Nerlens Noel’s season, or all 166 dunks from Andre Drummond’s season.  A video that really got my attention, though, was a compilation of all 497 field...

The ordeal didn’t leave the T’Wolves entirely empty handed. In fact, things started...

Ricky Rubio was expected to break into stardom in the NBA when he was originally drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves, but that has yet to happen.
