Timberwolves 125, Hornets 120: What just happened?

The Minnesota Timberwolves spent most of another game playing relatively badly, but somehow came into Charlotte and won in overtime on a back-to-back. How? Good question! I was all ready to re-write another edition of this year’s traditional game story about halfway through the third quarter, right when the Charlotte Hornets went on a 17-4 run to take their biggest lead of the...

Ricky Rubio’s Early Season Struggles

It has not been a strong start to the season for our Spanish Unicorn. What’s going on with Ricky Rubio? Late in Wednesday night’s two point loss to the Knicks, Ricky Rubio pushed the ball up court in semi-transition. He saw his teammates fan out to the three-point line, dragging their defenders with them, drove past the man guarding him, attacked an unprotected rim, and made...

Even the Suns videoboard replayed Zach LaVine’s absurd posterizing dunk

The Minnesota Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine is back to doing Zach LaVine things, which mainly consist of dunking on the world and making a positive impact in the deaf community. LaVine went to town on Phoenix Suns center Alex Len during Friday night’s game, finishing his latest highlight clip with a one-handed slam over the 7’1″ Ukrainian. The dunk was so good that the Phoenix...

WATCH: Zach LaVine performs ridiculous 360 dunk from the free-throw line

Zach LaVine is the two-time reigning slam-dunk champion for a reason. The 6-foot-5-inch Minnesota Timberwolves guard can jump out of the gym and pull off the most amazing dunks you’ve ever seen. Take the 2016 NBA Slam Dunk Contest for example. LaVine sealed a close victory over the Orlando Magic’s Aaron Gordon by pulling off a between-the-legs dunk from just inside the free...

Timberwolves might offer young stars in trades to win now

Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau might not have the patience for his young guys to develop. The Timberwolves sit 11th in the Western Conference at 4-7.

Young Minnesota Timberwolves are a work in progress

It hasn’t been the start that Minnesota Timberwolves fans had hoped for this season. In a tough Western Conference the T-wolves can’t afford to give up too much more ground if they wish to be a playoff team. But it’s still too early to hit the EXTREME PANIC MODE button just yet. Coach Tom Thibodeau hasn’t had a whole lot of time to teach this team full of youngsters his system...

WATCH: Karl-Anthony Towns ruthlessly dunks all over the helpless 76ers

Given how miserable things have been for the Philadelphia 76ers over the last several years, it has to be hard to really embarrass them much more at this point; they’re used to it. However, Minnesota Timberwolves second-year superstar Karl-Anthony Towns probably managed to make the Sixers feel a bit worse, thanks to an absolutely ridiculous play he put on Joel Embiid and company...

Minnesota Timberwolves: The problem with relying on Wiggins, Towns, and LaVine offensively

Remember when everyone questioned if Andrew Wiggins had the talent to become an NBA superstar? After an impressive sophomore season last year, where he averaged 20.7 points per game, critics still wondered if he would ever truly live up to his number one draft pick status. Well, Wiggins sure remembers those skeptics, because Year 3 in his NBA journey has been by far his best.  He’s...

Ricky Rubio ‘mad’ over Wolves’ struggles: Team is ‘not learning’

The Minnesota Timberwolves were a popular pick to make some noise in the Western Conference, but the young team has not delivered, winning just three of their first ten games. That is extremely frustrating for point guard Ricky Rubio, one of the team’s longest-tenured players. Rubio was blunt in his assessment of things after Minnesota’s 115-108 loss to the Charlotte Hornets...
