Fixing the NBA playoffs?

With a title like that I could be talking about NBA officiating or I could be talking about changing the format for the NBA Playoffs. I'm referring to the latter. Here's how I would do it: Step...

NBA Officiating

One week ago the Minnesota Timberwolves hosted the Los Angeles Clippers. The Timberwolves played a fairly decent game and clearly got under the skin of the Clippers in the first half (Matt Barnes...

For some reason it is comforting to know Rubio is a really big fan of the game. I wonder if Hasheem Thabeet watches basketball when not sitting on the bench.

OKC @ MIN 04/14 Timberwolves Report Card: No Ridnour, No Rubio, No Love, No problem

If somebody were to tell me the Wolves would be missing 3 out of their 4 most productive players for a game against the odds on favorite to represent the Western Conference in the finals, I would...

The Allure of Upside: Why NBA Teams Choose Potential Ahead of Production

This is not a direct response to Ebomb’s excellent post. This is a simple statement of NBA reality (as I see it). There’s a reason why guys like Chad Ford talk about Upside when it comes to NBA...

One decisive move to make us a contender?

The Timberwolves are looking better this year than they have in a long time. We have a young dynamic duo in Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. Love just got a new contract extension to stay with the...

How would you start a rival league?

As we stand on the brink of truncating the NBA season thanks to a lockout caused by greedy owners and overpaid players (not all players are overpaid, but some of them definitely are), I figured it...

What's the point of having positions in basketball?

With the Timberwolves drafting yet another power forward (or is he a small forward? - either way he plays the same position as at least 3 other guys already on the roster) it seems prudent to...

Draft Strategy

This is an oft-discussed topic at this time of year, but it really should be quite simple.  Logic dictates that with each pick you have in the draft you should select the Best Player Available to...

A different perspective

I was reading something about the Finals this morning and had an original thought about Derrick Williams.  Ever since he suggested that he would be a small forward in the NBA, everyone on CH has...

Turning it around?

Have the Wolves stockpiled enough assets to attempt a Celtics style turnaround? If we were going to try it, it would start with a Michael Beasley trade.  The first option I have in mind would send...

What trade chips do we have?

Here's one man's take on the value of our pieces.  I'm sure most people will disagree with the value I place on at least one of these players.  I have put the players into tiers on our team, and...

The Plan (Revisited)

Is Kevin Love a "Winner"?

When you look at the record of this team during Kevin Love's time here, it's clear to see that he's lost more games than he's won.  But if you're only counting wins and losses, then everybody on...

A possible solution to a humongous problem.

We all know the NBA has some atrocious officiating.  Some games are better than others, but as Minnesota Timberwolves fans we're acutely aware of how biased the refs can be.

What could have been?

It has recently been suggested that Kahn Haters shouldn't be claiming how horrible he's been as a GM without providing concrete examples of things he could have done that would result in the Wolves...

NBA 2K5 and the Timberwolves Roster

What might be the most unique aspect of NBA 2K5 was the features of the simulate game function.  Unlike in other games, NBA 2K5 involved the player in the simulation process by allowing the player...

Keeping Things in Perspective

I'm excited about how this team has played for the last three games.  I'm enjoying the success our 2 best players (Kevin Love and Michael Beasley) have had over those games.  Likewise I'm happy to...

Cousins vs. Johnson

This is all speculation at this point, but until the regular season starts it's all we've got.  Pre-season basketball is pretty fun to watch, but the games don't mean anything and all the...
