  1. Beasley is doing ballet. Oh, and he hired a PR firm to help his image.

    Oct 21, 2011, 11:15 AM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley is working on a transformation. Of himself, of his image. It’s going to take a lot of work. And a lot of time. He was arrested this summer for marijuana possession and pushed a guy in the face in a New York street ball game, two things that didn’t help the cause. But…

  2. The biggest skill Derrick Williams needs to develop? Passing.

    Oct 16, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Arizona v Connecticut

    There’s a number of reasons why this logic is flawed. I’m aware of that going in. When we’re talking about a coach, for some reason, we automatically want to assign the same roles to his or her new team as his or her old team. So for Phil Jackson, Lamar Odom is Horace Grant. For…

  3. Video: Marion, Love, Chandler turn lock out into locked in

    Oct 13, 2011, 8:40 AM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    At least we can laugh about the lockout. Well, sort of, but this video from the folks at Funny or Die will make you laugh. The premise is simply that Kevin Love, Shawn Marion and Tyson Chandler misunderstand the lockout and head to a junior high “lock in” night at the gym. I’d rather be…

  4. Kevin Love is back to his high school weight. Women everywhere jealous.

    Sep 28, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    Kevin Love,

    Beach volleyball is a serious workout. Kevin Love has done more than that this summer, he also has rested his body, but everything he has done seems to have worked — the Timberwolves power forward said he has dropped more than 20 pounds. That’s what he himself wrote at Grantland, where Love will blog during…

  5. Give David Kahn credit, he hit a home run this summer

    Sep 12, 2011, 8:42 PM EDT

    Kicking Timberwolves General Manager David Kahn has been a favorite past time of bloggers and NBA writers for years. With reason. There were moves like brining in Kurt Rambis as coach to run the triangle offense — an offense minimizes traditional point guard play — then instantly drafting Ricky Rubio and Jonny Flynn back-to-back at…

  6. Update: It’s official, Rick Adelman is Timberwolves new coach

    Sep 12, 2011, 5:45 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    UPDATE 5:45 pm: It’s official, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune has two sources confirming what has been expected — Rick Adelman is the new head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Expect and official announcement from the team soon. That’s twice now that Kevin Love broke on twitter that the Wolves hired  a new coach.…

  7. Report: Adelman near deal to become Timberwolves coach

    Sep 10, 2011, 3:27 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    If this happens, David Kahn will have won the summer. After having a second interview and some discussions about money, it appears that Rick Adelman is near a deal to take over as the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, reports Bill Ingram at HoopsWorld. Sources close to the situation told HOOPSWORLD that Adelman is…

    This is the third installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Today it’s the Minnesota Timberwolves. You can also read up on the Lakers and Mavericks as we start to work our way through all 30 NBA teams. It was a rough year for the Timberwolves last season.…

  9. Kevin Love says barnstorming tour of China coming

    Aug 26, 2011, 12:11 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    You know Kobe Bryant and other stars have talked about a “barnstorming” tour of China, to make some money and promote their brands if the lockout drags into the season. You also know there are obstacles, because this is China. But something is coming together, Kevin Love told Sports Illustrated. Oh, it’s very real. I…

  10. Kevin Love is good with Rick Adelman as Wolves coach

    Aug 26, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Kevin Love,

    Rick Adelman may be the next Minnesota Timberwolves coach. We know he interviewed for the job this week and there appears to be mutual interest, but there remain questions and until we see a name on the doted line nothing is certain. The key for any coach in the NBA now is player management. Yes,…

  11. Love says players want compromise but will not roll over

    Aug 17, 2011, 11:07 AM EDT

    Kevin Love 2

    The players are not winning the public relations battle with the lockout. Frankly, they can’t. The average sports fan knows the owners are ultra-rich, but they don’t relate to 20-somethings making millions. The players tend to get blamed for a lockout, no matter whose not budging. The NBA players realize they are going to come…

  12. Kevin Love says players enjoyed the Heat losing, too

    Jul 28, 2011, 11:56 AM EDT

    kevinlove

    Like a scene out of the terrible movie “Sideout,” Kevin Love has somehow become the media darling talking up beach volleyball even though he’s never really played it. (Volleyball legend Karch Kiraly was the only 90s beach volleyball star who refused to be in Sideout because he thought it demeaned the sport. Just another reason…

    NBA All-Star Kevin Love Holds Press Conference In Times Square

    Kevin Love was on the full-blown media tour yesterday, pimping beach volleyball and Jose Cuervo all over New York City and the national airwaves. And saying he’s got more sway with his organization than Kobe Bryant does with the Lakers. Out of that mound of media came a few interesting tidbits, like the stuff out…

  14. Rubio talks coming to NBA, says he needs to hit weights

    Jul 27, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    Draft Timberwolves Basketball

    For a while after he signed, Ricky Rubio was working out with his new Minnesota teammates, getting some run with Kevin Love and friends. Now, he is back in Spain preparing for EuroBasket, where the silver medal team from the 2008 Olympics will try to qualify for London 2012. While at training camp he spoke…

  15. Kevin Love is playing at the beach this summer

    Jul 26, 2011, 5:10 PM EDT

    Kevin Love Visits FOX Business

    In the summer in parts of Los Angeles, beach volleyball is a way of life. Very good athletes are out diving and leaping in the sand at 16th Place in Manhattan Beach (and a host of other spots from Pacific Palisades down to Newport). Countless of basketball stars with Southern California ties have worked out…

  16. Kevin Love getting input on Wolves next coach

    Kevin Love mohawk

    (Editor’s note: Yes, that is Kevin Love in the photo to the right, he tweeted a pick of himself with his new haircut, and as it is a lockout we want you to know what is up with Love’s locks. You can thank us later.) Kevin Love is getting more respect from his organization than…

  17. Blake Griffin, Kevin Love are true lockout professionals

    Jul 14, 2011, 10:51 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin Kevin Love

    So, you didn’t watch the ESPYs either? I love Seth Meyers, the Saturday Night Live star and host, but I just couldn’t. However, there are always a few good moments, so we went searching for them this morning and came across this, and had to share it. Because this is funny. It’s Kevin Love, Blake…

  18. Kevin Love speaks well of Rambis, talks new coach

    Jul 13, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love and finally fired Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis did not have a great relationship. It was one of the reasons Rambis was let go (that and all the losing). But the way Rambis was fired, left to twist in the wind for three months after the season, was just an embarrassment. It was bad…

  19. Video: Blake Griffin and Kevin Love have a Jenga war

    Jul 11, 2011, 7:15 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin Kevin Love

    Via The Basketball Jones, here’s an ESPN-produced video of two of the NBA’s best young power forwards having a Jenga war. In a battle of athleticism vs. skill, Love took the first game, but Griffin came right back to even the score at 1-1. When asked how playing Jenga helps them stay focused during the…

  20. Kevin Love and Blake Griffin are in jail (just kidding)

    Jul 8, 2011, 8:49 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin Kevin Love

    Blake Griffin tweeted this photo (look to the right) of him and Kevin Love Thursday night saying: I guess they’re taking this lockout stuff pretty seriously No, it is not a photo of a real arrest. No, they are not hanging out with Michael Beasley. Just a couple of All-Stars pretending to be the 2002…

  21. Who are the most underpaid players in the NBA?

    Jul 6, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Last night we brought you the most overpaid players in the NBA, at least according to the Wages of Wins blog. But who are the best values? Who are the most underpaid according to the Wages of Wins blog? Not necessarily who you think. Often it can be good player still on a rookie deal.…

  22. Wolves still shopping No. 2 pick, odd rumors abound

    Jun 20, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    We know this much — Derrick Williams out of Arizona will be the No. 2 pick in this draft. (Don’t buy the lines that the Cavs might take him No. 1, it’s not happening.) What we don’t know — who will be drafting Williams. With the draft just four days away, Minnesota is working hard…

  23. Ricky Rubio makes it official, he is coming to Minnesota

    Jun 17, 2011, 10:17 AM EDT

    Spanish basketball player Ricky Rubio wa

    While people told David Kahn to trade the pick — Ricky Rubio was never going to play in Minnesota, get something of value for him — he was patient. That patience has been rewarded, Ricky Rubio made official Friday morning in Spain what we all knew would happen — Rubio is coming to the NBA.…

  24. Report: Minnesota dangling No. 2 pick, Pacers interested

    May 19, 2011, 5:09 PM EDT

    Granger_celebrates

    It makes a lot of sense for the Timberwolves to be shopping the No. 2 pick in the draft, which makes the numerous reports it is happening easy to believe. That pick is either going to be Derrick Williams — a likely four who maybe can play the three — or now-rising Turkish power forward…

  25. It’s official, Kevin Love is NBA’s Most Improved Player

    Apr 21, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    We told you this was coming, but it is now official, Minnesota’s Kevin Love is the NBA’s Most Improved Player. We also told you we were down with that — Love improved his shooting percentage from all over the court, his rebounding percentage and the consistency of his effort. Coach Kurt Rambis (who was not…
