The Nikola Pekovic Files

If there is one player that is more polarizing than Ricky Rubio on the Timberwolves this year, it would be Nikola “The Godfather” Pekovic. I mean, he might just be big enough to have his own gravitational pull and magnetic field … get it … “polarizing”? … all right, I’m probably stretching it … but it is still funny to think of how much he’d tower over big tough...

The Kevin Garnett Files

Alright everybody, the time has come for me to put on my Doc Martin’s, a pair of faded jeans and a super a super baggy-ass sweater, and pretend that it’s the 90s again. That is to say, I never thought I would be writing a player profile about the legend that is Kevin Garnett in 2015. A KG comeback just sounded too far fetched. But that doesn’t matter now, because he’s back...

The Wiggins Files: Andrew’s Game

When the Twolves received Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young in the Kevin Love trade, they got quite the deal. While Young is now in Brooklyn, and Bennett may be on his way out of town as well, Wiggins was the real catch there.  Now after his rookie season, he only appears more ready to prove that conclusion valid. He projects to be a player every bit the caliber...

The Kevin Martin Files

Number two on the roster review docket, is the incumbent starting shooting guard, Kevin Martin. He is one of the holdovers from a bygone era: The Adelmanian Years. The Adelmanian Age was a time in Twolves past when PFs shot step back threes, wing players imitated NFL wide outs: when the front court featured flat footed rim-protection and everyone complained far too much about...

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 Unfortunately, what is no longer applicable, isn’t exactly any more positive than before.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...

The Danger of Potential

First thing’s first. Rejoice! This is a incredible time in Timberwolves history. For the first time, the Twolves received the #1 pick in the draft. And, for one of the few times in the last decade, they actually used it to take a player that most everyone considers to be not only solid, but rock solid. AND they somehow currently have the last three #1 overall selections...

Bennett Back on the Move

Anthony Bennett’s time in Minnesota could be set to come to an end after just one season, with the former number-one draft set to leave the Timberwolves during the offseason. On the back of a dismal season for both Bennett and Minnesota, the arrival of a new number-one draft selection in the shape of Kentucky sensation Karl-Anthony Towns, the 2013 top pick appears set to be...

’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...

TWolves most expensive game in March will feature Wiggins and Garnett in OKC

Although the Minnesota Timberwolves are in last place of their division, they are the last place team with the most positive energy around it. They’ve been far better defensively over the past month and have gone 5-5 in their past 10 games. Minnesota has wins against Memphis, Phoenix and Washington at home and is playing well in losses to some contenders. The Timberwolves beat...

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...

You are well aware. Kevin Garnett is back. While the trade has not yet been reported by the Wolves in official capacity, the afternoon and morning has brought about a ton of chatter and debate on whether this is good move or a bad one. Trade deadline day is always a blast, and results in thousands of hours of lost professional productivity. Today was easily one of the most active...
