How About We Just Do Two More Weeks Of Wiggins Vs. Gobert

Listen, man, we're all ready for the NBA regular season to be over and for the playoffs to just start already. Russell Westbrook slaying the world is great and all, but the Raptors and Wizards zombie-shuffling their way toward what will be the saddest first-round playoff series in history while the rest of the… » 3/31/15 10:10am Today 10:10am

The Timberwolves Signed A Guy Because He Was Nearby

The closest race in the NBA is at the bottom, where Minnesota and New York are neck and neck for the league's worst record—and the best shot at the No. 1 overall draft pick—with Philly and Los Angeles not far ahead. Last night's T-Wolves/Knicks tangle at MSG had the feel of a championship game—a poorly played, poorly… » 3/20/15 9:08am 3/20/15 9:08am

This Kevin Garnett/Stephon Marbury Ad For ESPN The Mag Was Good

On the occasion of, I don't know, Kevin Garnett returning to Minnesota (okay, not really, it's because reader Chris emailed us to remind us of its existence), watch this 1998 commercial for the launch of ESPN The Magazine, featuring KG and then-Wolves teammate Stephon Marbury. » 2/27/15 3:49pm 2/27/15 3:49pm

Kevin Garnett's Already Yelled At One Of His New Teammates

Kevin Garnett's return to the Minnesota Timberwolves sounds like a premise for an average sports movie: Old star returns to his first team, gets a middling team into shape, and everyone gets a nice ending. The Timberwolves definitely won't make the playoffs this season, but maybe their small victory turns out to be a… » 2/24/15 3:17pm 2/24/15 3:17pm

Andrew Wiggins Shows James Harden What Real Defense Looks Like

James Harden must have been feeling pretty cocky after turning Ricky Rubio's ankles into cornmeal, because he tried to pull the same shit on Andrew Wiggins just a few minutes later. Unfortunately for Harden, Wiggins looked at all those fancy crossovers and said, "Hi, um, I'm not Ricky Rubio." » 2/24/15 11:02am 2/24/15 11:02am

Kevin Garnett's Already Intimidated One Of His New Teammates

Hey, Ricky Rubio Is Back And Making Fun Passes Again

Did you forget about Ricky Rubio? You probably forget about Ricky Rubio, because he's been out of action since Nov. 7, and nobody cares too much about what's going on with the Minnesota Timberwolves. But Rubio's back, and he is still his dazzling self. » 2/05/15 12:22pm 2/05/15 12:22pm

That's A Bad Tweet, Timberwolves

A few players from the Minnesota Timberwolves hung out with sick children at the Mall of America today, and the team's PR account documented the event. The 140-character limit can cause users to compress their thoughts, sometimes poorly. That's how you get this: » 1/22/15 5:45pm 1/22/15 5:45pm

Introducing: The Shabazz Assist 

Two years ago, Grantland's Kirk Goldsberry introduced the Kobe Assist, a new statistic that "proves that missing shots is sometimes just as valuable as making them." Goldsberry's analysis was interesting, but it left out a key component: the dunkpass. You see, Goldsberry examined what percentage of a player's missed… » 1/07/15 11:29pm 1/07/15 11:29pm

Andrew Wiggins Dunking On Him Is A Metaphor For Kevin Love's Season

Andrew Wiggins had one of his best game as a pro tonight against the team that drafted him first and then traded him away, punctuating his 27 points with this thundering tomahawk jam that Kevin Love—who Wiggins was traded for—wanted no part of. Of course, the Timberwolves lost by 20 because they aren't very good,… » 12/23/14 10:29pm 12/23/14 10:29pm

76ers Get First Win, Are Still A Cynical And Indescribably Awful Fraud

The Philadelphia 76ers managed to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves last night, bringing their season record to 1-17 and avoiding tying the record for most consecutive losses to start a season. They remain the grossest team in the NBA. » 12/04/14 9:34am 12/04/14 9:34am

Anthony Bennett Says He Couldn't See Shit Last Year

Former Cavalier Anthony Bennett, who became perhaps the saddest sad-sack No. 1 overall pick we've ever seen last season, is now a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves and is hoping to bounce back from his terrible rookie campaign.

After T-Wolves shooting guard Kevin Martin earned himself a $15,000 fine on Monday for doing the Big Balls Dance, a reporter asked Minnesota head coach Flip Saunders what he thought about Martin's display of testicle-based showmanship.

The NBA Continues To Crack Down On The Big Balls Dance

If there's one thing that should immediately earn an NBA player your respect, it is a willingness to do Sam Cassell's Big Balls Dance right in the face of a tyrannical, anti-balls league. » 11/03/14 12:38pm 11/03/14 12:38pm

Kevin Martin Isn't Actually Clueless, Knew Kevin Love Was Traded

For a minute there, it sure seemed like the Timberwolves's Kevin Martin was the most oblivious basketball player in the NBA.
