I'm a bit of a nomad that has lived all over the USA, primarily in Minnesota and Phoenix, AZ. Also had brief stops in the Bay Area, Alaska, and currently reside in Chicago. Despite acquiring a liking for teams from a few different cities over the years, to this day I still identify myself more as a Minnesotan than anything. Twins, Vikings, and Wolves always have been, and always will be, my #1 teams.

REPORT CARD – Wolves @ Jazz

My Criteria – Grades are based on performance relative to my expectations. A bad game by KLove is way better than anything Rashad McCants ever did (and I wrote that sentence before the game even...

T'Wolves and Suns Fan...Who says no?

Normally don't engage in fake trade speculation, but it's kinda rare when you find a deal that works for all parties. I grew up in PHX and lived in 'Sota for a long time. I love both the Suns and...

Drafting for Fit

There’s nothing funnier, or more disingenuous, than hearing a GM of any sports franchise spew that hilarious, timeless chestnut of draft philosophy, “We aren’t going to draft for need, we’ll take...

Who's Your NBA Equivalent?

So, I've been playing a regular game lately with some guys from work, and they've been calling me "Timmy D."  Not sure if it's because I'm so damn smooth, or due to my painful lack of speed and...

Excellent Kevin Love article on ESPN. No matter what you think of his game, he seems like a good dude to have around.

A Six Sigma Analysis of the Wolves: Player Heat Map

  I want to start this post with an apology.  A couple of weeks ago, I proposed doing a full-on 6 Sigma analysis of the Timberwolves to Canis Hoopus, and promised to get going on it right away.  As...

Hello fellow CH'ers.  How's everyone enjoying the season so far?  I know we only have four wins.  And I know we've had some ugly losses.  But for the first time in a long time, I have a strangely...

It’s been about 24 hours since the NBA draft came to an end.  Amazing what that amount of time can do for your perspective.  Heated reactions dissolve and rational ideas emerge.  Frightening...

A simple question about Wes Johnson…

I know there’s been a lot of discussion here about Wes Johnson lately, but I didn’t really see an appropriate thread to post this question.  So here it is.  Where did all this positive talk about...

A few thoughts so far (and maybe some predictions) after 5 whole games

  - We're going to win this division handily - I think I know why Orlando Hudson is always looking for a job in Spring Training.  I've never used the word "airhead" for a baseball player before,...

Ghosts of Wolves future...I hope

  So much for a Timberwolves “off night.”  When you’re this non-competitive, and have major chips invested in the draft, certain college basketball evenings become more engaging than when we send...

Canis Hoopus - Beyond Thunderdome

I put up a Fanpost recently talking about the unwinnable, dogmatic arguments that we sometimes get into here at Hoopus.  I was in no way discouraging these conversations from happening, because in...

What Up, Dogma?

  To start, I just want to say how much I enjoy Canis Hoopus.  Our team has, historically, been one of the doormats in the NBA during it’s existence.  We’ve endured lots of losing, a sustained...

Wolves Pre-Season Player Review

So.  We're about three games into the NBA Pre-Season...and each of us has probably only seen about one game...if that.  Despite what we all know is a proper sample size, it's never too early to...

If we end up having to trade Ricky Rubio

Since the day after the draft, I’ve been contending that we will never see Ricky Rubio play in a Minnesota Timberwolves uniform.  From the way he’s answered questions (saying he wants to play in...
