Players with criminal and character issues

Lots of good and not so good points made in discussing the potential dangers of drafting noted serial killer, member of the Westboro Baptist Church, and part-time Amway representative DeMarcus...

Rerevisiting Rudy Fernandez (with poll!)

Rudy's looking to get out of Portland, and according to the always-reliable Marca.com, he's willing to go to Madrid for 2.3 mm euros ($2.75 million) per year. Today's sports daily Marca reports...

Who will really be available in 2011 free agency?

SnP says that one of the Wolves' strategies may be to keep space open in 2011 to add a big-time free agent. That sounds wise, but upon further review of the actual list of restricted and...

Let's Settle This: What should the Wolves do with the 4th pick? (with poll!)

Okay, we've cried until we have no more tears, and moved through the 12 Stages of Lotto Grief. While we ponder how much worse the Wolves would have actually done in the lottery if Kahn hadn't...

FanPost

Let's Settle This: Were the Wolves tanking, and was it a good idea? (with poll!)

Only one more day until the fate of the free world is decided Timberwolves find out where they will be slotted for the initial draft. So for our last LST, we'll ask if the Wolves were really as bad...

Let's Settle This: Grade Kurt Rambis in his first year as the Wolves coach (with poll!)

There's only one more day until the lottery balls start bouncing, but there are still a couple of matters to address. You know the drill, and if you don't, just look up the many posts on the right...

Let's Settle This: Grade David Kahn's first year (with poll!)

We're only three days away from the Bouncing of the Lottery Balls, but to fill up the remaining days we're solving the Wolves problems as a group. So far we'd prefer that Al be traded instead of K...

Let's Settle This: How should the Wolves win next year? (with poll!)

So far we've decided resoundingly to trade Al Jefferson instead of Kevin Love, barely to pick Evan Turner over all others, and the majority of us think that if the rights to Ricky Rubio are to be...

FanPost

Let's Settle This: What would you want for the rights to Rubio? (with poll!)

Wow. In a bit of a surprise, the people have narrowly chosen Evan Turner over John Wall as the best pick for the Wolves, regardless of who is available when the team chooses. Today's LST is...

FanPost

Let's Settle This: Whom should the Wolves draft with their first pick? (with poll!)

The results of the first LST seem to confirm that if possible, fans here feel that Al should go before Love (and we already knew that pride goes before a fall). Today's version is a little more...

FanPost

Let's Settle This: Trade Love, or trade Al? (with poll!)

Okay, Rubio's season is over, and there's a week until the lottery balls start bouncing. Nature and I have one thing in common: we both abhor a vacuum. So to keep the conversation moving, I'll be...

What to watch while you wait for the Wolves

If you haven't caught any/all of ESPN's 30 for 30 documentaries, you should check into tonight's Guru of Go, the Story of Paul Westhead (8:00 p.m. Central on ESPN). If you can't catch it, it's...

Come for the Wolves, stay for the drama?

Regular visitors to Canis Hoopus are painfully aware of some contention between various members and moderators that often veers off into petty and personal comments (and you know goddam well what...

Synergy Sports for the general public

It must feel like Festivus in April at SnP's house, because his much-loved Synergy Sports has announced a low(er)-priced option of its services for the serious fan.

Another Reason the Wolves Won't Draft Cousins . . .

is that a former talented TWolf is back in the news (and probably not for reasons he would like to be, unless "kidnapping an infant" is a reason for which one would want to be in the news):   P...

Will the Wolves Sponsor Their Own "Squad 6"?

    A good question at the upcoming sit-down with Kahn would be to ask if there are plans to liven up the Target Center with some deals for fans who have more time and passion than they do...

In Which Half are the Wolves?

Today the Wall Street Journal published a story citing interviews with all of the NBA teams. Half of the teams have at least one paid "Stathead" on staff, and the winning percentage of those teams...

Revisiting Rudy Fernandez

Take it with the required truckload of sal, but via RealGM Rudy Fernandez is supposedly not feelin' it in Portland right now, at least since his amigo Sergio has left. How can and should the Wolves...

Tyrus Thomas?

Your good friend and mine AWoj at Yahoo Sports is at it again, calling the Wolves a "sleeper" trade destination for Bulls forward Tyrus Thomas.

FanPost

It's that time of year again

Apparently Wolves fans aren't the only losers focusing on the 2010 draft well before the All Star game is played--Our King, Chad Ford has just put up his Mock Draft Lottery machine, which due to...

FanPost

Are you afraid to make this trade?

My first preference for improving this team is for Glen and POBO to break the bank and go after some veteran talent with big paychecks. That isn't happening. The next favorite way to get better is...

FanPost

Pops and/or Hibachi

Two players that have commensurate potential risk and reward: Pops Mensah-Bonsu, and Gilbert Arenas. Could and should the Wolves go after either or both?

FanPost

Trade Deng and Noah for Al Jefferson?

Hello, Bulls fans. I posted this idea a few days ago at the TWolves site Canis Hoopus, and wanted to get your thoughts on the idea of sending Deng and Noah to the Wolves for Al Jefferson.

FanPost

Al Jefferson for Noah and Deng?

The Wolves need a small forward/wing who can both defend and score. Options discussed included adding Rudy Gay via trade or free agency, drafting Evan Turner, or hanging on until the trade...

Help. I'm coaching my son's basketball team.

I have little interest, less time, and no knowledge for coaching youth sports teams. But my 2nd grader wants to play, and they don't have a coach for his team. He asked me to coach, and I love him...

Ricky Delayed?

  Via Marca, Ricky Rubio signs a six-year agreement with Barca, with an "affordable buyout" in 2011. Barca will pay $5.3 million to the Verde Negro in the buyout.

The young PF is saying that all the kids at camp are calling him "Big Twitter", but he prefers "Senor Amor".

Trading with the Atlanta Hawks

Once the Bucks and Bulls were deemed to be ideal potential trading partners for the Wolves, in that they were in the East, and in a different spot in the rebuilding process than the Wolves...
