’14-’15 Wolves Review Part 1: Wiggins Shines, But Injured Wolves Disappoint Again

Note: Two brief comments before diving into this. First, I am pumping out a pair of season review posts a few games early as I will be on vacation next week. The first will focus on the players and injuries; the second will be on front office/Flip dynamics and big picture team coaching with as good of an attempt as I can make to keep those parts separate, though that will ultimately...

Bledsoe For The WIN

I really don't like this 7 game slate on Saturday night.  If you want to take the night off or play less volume I wouldn't argue against it.  There isn't a player over 9k on Draft Kings if that tells you what kind of night it’s going to be. Point Guards Ricky Rubio has really been fantastic the past 5 games.  His price has come up but still not to the level where his play...

Garnett Offers Wolves Youth a Chance at Similar Legacy

Back in the late 90’s, before I was legally allowed to drive an automobile, I would await a ride home from a small house in East Bloomington where I studied drums with an old man who was just shy of 5 feet tall. There, we would spend about an hour per week studying and writing jazz fills, learning odd time signatures, sight-reading snare drum solos, mastering rudiments and building...

Watch James Harden shatter Ricky Rubio's poor ankles

What evidence do we have that James Harden is more "unforgiving hurricane" than "merciful human being?" Oh, not much...besides this humilating/brilliant clip of him dropping poor Ricky Rubio with a blink-and-you're-unconscious crossover.  Just look at this thing!
