  1. Video: Watch Kevin Love learn he is an All-Star

    Feb 7, 2011, 2:31 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Fun little video from the people at Recording NBA History: They were inside the Timberwolves locker room when Kevin Love learned he will be an NBA All-Star this season. Kurt Rambis gives the news… and you wonder how much the cameras in the room changed the amount of ribbing Love would have taken from teammates.…

  2. Kurt Rambis sees Kevin Love as the evolution of the power forward

    Kurt Rambis was a power forward who did what power forwards of his generation were supposed to do — get in the paint, bang, get rebounds and do the dirty work. Now he is coaching Kevin Love, who is having a breakout season doing some dirty work like rebounding — and doing that better than…

  3. Wolves Anthony Tolliver out for “a while” with sprained knee

    Tolliver_wolves

    Anthony Tolliver — the guy better known as “why are they playing him and not Kevin Love more?” — will be out for “a while” with a sprained right knee, the team announced. He will get another evaluation on Monday that may give us a better timeline for his return. He sprained it Friday night…

  4. Jonny Flynn’s D-League rehab stint may be longer than expected

    Dec 2, 2010, 7:21 PM EDT

    Jonny Flynn

    The Minnesota Timberwolves, following the Toronto Raptors’ lead, did something smart. After their young, talented player started the season out on the shelf, they sent him down to the D-League to work his way back into basketball before bringing him along at the NBA level. Only first and second-year players are able to be assigned…

  5. All you need is Love — Kevin gets 31 points, 31 rebounds

    The Detroit Pistons were in the visiting locker room at Staples Center, having just beaten the Clippers, when all of a sudden Tracy McGrath just let’s out a “day-am” that turns heads when he saw it on his phone, according to Eric Incus of HoopsWorld. Rudy Gay was tweeting about it. Even for other NBA…

  6. Jonny Flynn expected to return to Timberwolves next Wednesday

    The Minnesota Timberwolves have not gotten good production out of the point guard position this season. Now, to be fair, look at the numbers and you see they haven’t gotten good production at any position except the four (I’m tired of pimping Kevin Love in spots like this, so just pretend I did). But unlike…

  7. Teams calling Timberwolves about Kevin Love, getting nowhere

    Nov 11, 2010, 1:16 PM EDT

    KLove_fouled

    “You know, if you’re not going to play him, we’ll take him off your hands…” The Minnesota Timberwolves front office has gotten a few calls that essentially went like that, inquiring about the availability of Kevin Love in a trade, according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports. All those inquiries “have been met with an…

  8. Luke Ridnour’s hamstring is just strained

    Nov 9, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

    Ridnour_Wolves

    UPDATE 3:14 pm: The reports are in from the specialist Ridnour saw and it is just a strained hamstring, nothing torn or more severely injured, according to a tweet from Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. Hamstrings can linger if not fully rested, which seems to be the case here. Ridnour is with the team…

  9. Kevin Love just wants to play

    Nov 5, 2010, 4:21 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v New Orleans Hornets

    Brandon Roy is averaging 40.5 minutes a game this season to lead the league. Team’s stars usually average 35 give or take a little. Pau Gasol is at 37.4 per game this season for the Lakers, Rudy Gay 39.2, Russell Westbrook 36.4, Paul Pierce 37.2. Then there are guys like Beno Udrh getting 36 per…

  10. Kevin Love, Kurt Rambis hug it out, say everything is just fine

    Oct 29, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    Love_Kings

    Kevin Love had a lot of people rushing to his defense — including us here at PBT — after he sat out the final eight minutes of a one-point loss to Sacramento Wednesday. Rambis took some hits for playing Anthony Tolliver over Love down the stretch. But while the Internet was doing what the Internet…

  11. Rambis says defense reason Kevin Love got benched. But Beasley and Darko stayed in?

    Oct 28, 2010, 10:54 AM EDT

    Love_Kings

    Kevin Love played just under nine minutes in the second half of the Timberwolves season opener. He came out at the 8:38 mark of the fourth quarter never to return. Love, the one guy on the Timberwolves part of USA Basketball this summer, the guy considered the face of the franchise and the future by…

  12. Kevin Love knows he's getting a raw deal in Minnesota

    Aug 11, 2010, 12:07 PM EDT

    Kevin Love is one of the most promising young big men in the league. Kurt Rambis and the Timberwolves organization seem to know it, as they’ve cleared Al Jefferson out of the way to give Love more room to stretch his legs. At the same time, the Wolves have loaded up on forwards this off-season,…

  13. Joe Alexander works out with the Timberwolves. This is not a joke.

    Aug 9, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    No jokes, no slights, just facts. Joe Alexander was selected with the 8th pick in the 2008 draft. He has played for two seasons with two different teams, and was denied a team option for his third and fourth seasons, despite rookie scale contracts being the most affordable. Alexander has played in 67 total games…

  14. Kurt Rambis on Pau Gasol: "He just looks tired."

    Jun 15, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    Pau Gasol is not soft. He is tired. That is what former Laker assistant and current Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Kurt Rambis sees, and what he told Dan Bareirro on KFAN in Minneapolis. Gasol looked good in the first two games when he was getting help from Andrew Bynum, but with Bynum fading and Odom…

  15. NBA Draft 2010: Minnesota looking hard at Syracuse's Wesley Johnson

    May 24, 2010, 1:18 PM EDT

    It is possible that the Minnesota Timberwolves will move down in this draft — some team in love with DeMarcus Cousins could offer a sweet package to move up, and if so the Wolves would be hard pressed to turn that down. But if the offers are not so sweet, how about them taking the…

  16. Ricky Rubio leads Barcelona to Euroleague title, says blowing off Minnesota was right call

    May 10, 2010, 8:31 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio is a basketball rock star. At 19 he just led Barcelona to the Euroleague championship Sunday, making some shots but mostly creating for others with natural gifts that have NBA Scouts drooling. He is the best point guard in Europe. Last summer — at 18 — he held his own against America’s best…
