  1. Timberwolves sign Stiemsma to add to blocks, fouls in box score

    Jul 21, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Greg Stiemsma, Rajon Rondo

    There’s this Eddie Izzard bit I love, where he says his counselor asked him “What do you want to do, kid, what do you want to do?” and Izzard replies that he wants to be an astronaut. The counselor says “Look, kid, you’re British, so scale it down a bit.” That’s kind of what this offseason…

  2. Kevin Love happy to see “bad blood” gone from Timberwolves locker room

    Jul 20, 2012, 12:42 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Michael Beasley, Darko Milicic, Anthony Randolph, and Martell Webster. Those are the four main guys Minnesota has moved out this off-season. Decide for yourself who Kevin Love was talking about when he said this to the Pioneer Press (via SLAM). “If we get everybody back healthy, with Ricky (Rubio) back healthy, if (Brandon) Roy comes…

  3. 50 Observations about NBA Free Agency

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    From time to time, I drop random observations because it’s too long for a tweet and too short for a full post. Also because it allows me to crack jokes, which is really the reason I’m here. That and the money. Mostly the money. Anyway, it’s been a crazy week of free agency. Here are…

  4. Nash to the Lakers the right move for Phoenix, but a bitter one for Suns fans to swallow

    Jul 5, 2012, 11:40 AM EDT

    Steve Nash

    The Lakers appeared to be a longshot at best to acquire Steve Nash, but unexpectedly pulled off the deal that will send multiple draft picks back to Phoenix in exchange for the two-time MVP’s services. The sign-and-trade deal will net Nash a contract of three years and more than $25 million to play for the…

  5. Suns come to terms with deals for Dragic, Beasley

    Jul 5, 2012, 2:06 AM EDT

    goran-dragic-rockets-suns

    You know what they say. If you can’t have the two-time MVP and franchise player, make sure you spend $14.5 million every year for Goran Dragic and Michael Beasley. The Suns came to terms with two big free agents the same day they dealt Steve Nash in a sign-and-trade to the Lakers. First, they came…

    Can you picture a San Antonio vs. Miami finals? It’s not that hard, if you try. 1. Spurs (40-14, last week ranked number 2). Eleven wins in a row and they are percentage points ahead of the Thunder (and one ahead of them in the loss column). Are they title contenders? They have four rings…

  12. Another Minnesota point guard down: Ridnour sprains ankle

    Apr 3, 2012, 8:09 AM EDT

    Luke Ridnour

    The good news is the Timberwolves are about get J.J. Barea back, because they are hurting again at point guard. Luke Ridnour went down Monday night with what appeared to be a severe ankle sprain. It was an innocent play where he stepped on Jimmer Fredette’s ankle, but the twist was nasty. No word yet…

    Luke Ridnour, Kevin Love, Michael Beasley

    Sunday Michael Beasley was questionable in a game against the Nuggets due to a sprained big toe, but he went out and played anyway and scored 11 points in the game. You’ve probably been wondering, “How did he do that?” Okay, no you didn’t. Neither did I. Nobody did. But it turns out the story…

  14. Video: Timberwolves karaoke “sings” Britney Spears

    Mar 23, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Nikola Pekovic

    Got to hand it to the Timberwolves video team, who have pulled off some good stuff this year. Their latest is to get some suckers players to “sing” the Britney Spears classic “Hit me baby one more time.” And by the way, I use the word “classic” very loosely here. Michael Beasley sings like he…

    Mar 14, 2012, 7:15 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Three-team trades tend to die on the vine — there are too many moving parts, too many players and agents and teams to make happy. But there is one involving the Lakers, Trail Blazers and Timberwolves that is picking up some steam, according to multiple reports including Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Also CSNNW.com says the…

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Magic have been much busier in the days leading up to the NBA’s trade deadline than they’d like to be, thanks to Dwight Howard‘s uncertain future in Orlando and the many teams interested in offering a collection of less talented players in exchange for the league’s best big man. But he’s not the only…

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    The Timberwolves needed this.

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season.

    Michael Beasley, Mike Dunleavy, Carlos Delfino

    If you were Dwight Howard, would the presence of Michael Beasley on a team make you want to play there? I wouldn’t think so either, but some of the teams most active in trying to get the forward out of Minnesota are teams trying to impress Howard, according to Ken Berger at CBSSports.com. It’s no…

    Deshawn Stevenson

    What you missed while you were spilling beer on the German Chancellor…. Nets 93, Mavericks 92: Dallas, you did a terrible job of trying to impress Deron Williams and make him want to join your roster. Starting late in the third quarter the Mavericks went on an 0-13 shooting streak, they didn’t have a field…

  24. Report: Celtics, Nets considering trading for Michael Beasley

    Feb 28, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    I’m beginning to think we should use Michael Beasley as the “desperation meter” between now and the trade deadline — whenever a team considers going after Beasley because “they can turn him around” you know they are desperate. Enter the Boston Celtics and New Jersey Nets. Following in the footsteps of Lakers rumors, there are…

  25. Warriors willing to trade Monta Ellis, but only for superstar

    Feb 23, 2012, 2:26 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    In an annual tradition like Meryl Streep getting an Oscar nomination, the Monta Ellis trade rumors have started to swirl. Golden State likes Monta Ellis for all the same reasons you covet him for your team — there are few better pure scorers in the league. At the end of the day, putting ball in…
