Minnesota Timberwolves Assist Distribution


At Hickory-High I created a series of graphs showing how each team's assists per games are divided among distrbutors and shooters. This link will take you to the Timberwolves' graph. No surprise, Rubio and Ridnour are handing our plenty of helpers. Love and Beasley have been the main beneficiaries. You can check out the rest of the league here. I'd love to hear feedback. Easy to read? Interesting? Useful?

Team specific podcasts have been springing up all over the place, but I hadn't yet seen one that focused on the Pacers. In an effort to diversify content, I've thrown my hat in the ring.

The sound quality is rough and definitely a work in progress, but hopefully this can develop into a usable outlet for Pacers' discussion. Feedback is definitely welcomed!

Don't Pass On Josh McRoberts


Cornrows' readers know I'm a huge fan of Josh McRoberts. I shared that fondness at Hickory-High, pointing out some of his strengths and weaknesses, suggesting that he probably deserves some attention from a few teams during free agency (whenever that actually occurs). If you're weren't wild about McRoberts last season, take a look and see if I can change your mind.
