Wolves' Muhammad shedding labels, showing off potential

MINNEAPOLIS -- Shabazz Muhammad came to Minnesota bearing more labels than the soup aisle at the local grocery store. "Selfish," one can reads. Inside, there's footage of him pouting after UCLA teammate Larry Drew Jr. hits a game-winning shot against Washington -- an opportunity Muhammad apparently thought was meant for him. "Lazy" is inscribed on the next container. Its contents...

Who won the 2013 NBA Draft?

Even as somebody who doesn’t invest a lot of time in watching college and international basketball, I’ve heard a certain narrative percolating as far back as two years ago: The 2013 NBA Draft was shaping up to be one of the worst drafts in recent memory, while the 2014 draft was looking like one of the best. Although it’s perilously early to begin grading the 2014 draft...

Timberwolves Injury Update: Shabazz Muhammad no longer in walking boot

Coming off a 40-win season, the Timberwolves are looking to improve upon their defense which gave up over 104 points per game last season.

Same name, new frame for slimmer, more athletic Muhammad

MINNEAPOLIS -- Word at the Target Center is Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine aren't the only new, high-flying youngsters on the Timberwolves roster this season. Sure, the 2014 first-round draft picks, self-dubbed the "Bounce Brothers," are electrifying enough. But there's another slender, athletic wing vying for a spot in the show.

Shabazz Muhammad Got Jacked This Summer

Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Shabazz Muhammad out of UCLA had a rough rookie season to say the least.

Saunders says he'll be more demanding on players he drafted

MINNEAPOLIS -- Shabazz Muhammad appeared in 37 NBA games during his rookie season, averaging a menial 7.8 minutes per contest. But when he was on the floor, the swingman from UCLA was productive -- albeit a good chunk of his game repetitions came during garbage time. Per 48 minutes, Muhammad averaged 23.7 points and 8.8 boards. His slashing, at-times frenzied style of play didn&...
