Could he help the Timberwolves keep Kevin Love?
Mar 28, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT
Minnesota is now paying the price for David Kahn’s biggest mistake as general manager — refusing to give Kevin Love the full five-year max salary extension. (He was saving it for Ricky Rubio, the guy he drafted.) What Love ended up with was a four year deal — but he pushed for and got on…

Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love work well together lifting Timberwolves past Mavericks. Also, Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks just keep on rolling.

Imagining how previous NBA drafts would play out in hindsight is always fun, an instant debate starter for basketball fans. I’m sure we’ve all wasted a countless hours analyzing questions like: Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh No. 3 behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2004? Do half the top-eight picks in 2013 remain in…

The Minnesota Timberwolves just can’t win close games. Trailing the Phoenix Suns by eight points in the fourth quarter Tuesday night, Minnesota exploded for a 24-6 run in a 110-101 win. Yet, the Timberwolves remain 1-12 in games decided by four or fewer points – by far the worst mark in the NBA. If only they…

Ricky Rubio‘s shooting this season is not exactly on the trajectory the Timberwolves were hoping for — hitting 36.3 percent overall, taking 42 percent of his shots at the rim (inside the restricted area) but hitting just 44.6 percent of those. David Kahn was saving the magical fifth year extension for this guy? But he…

The Minnesota Timberwolves wanted Andre Miller, but he’s headed to Washington. The Timberwolves still need a better backup point guard to make a playoff push – they’re outscored by 4.7 points per 100 possessions when Ricky Rubio sits (+5.8 when he plays) – so they’ve turned their attention elsewhere. Hearing that the Timberwolves, falling short…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while worrying about our national clown shortage… Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks. New York picked up a win in New Orleans because of Carmelo Anthony (who seems to play well in that city as he had monster numbers in the All-Star Game, too). He poured…

If Andre Miller isn’t returning to the Nuggets, they might as well trade him. Miller, sent away from the team after feuding with Denver coach Brian Shaw, definitely wants a trade and a chance to play somewhere. The Nuggets should resist any inclination to be petty, and they should accommodate him. There are a number…

The Memphis Grizzlies have a very stout defense but need more scoring punch, particularly outside shooting, if they are going to advance deep in the playoffs again (Courtney Lee has been a big boost here). The Minnesota Timberwolves need more consistent defense if they have hopes of making a playoff push (it’s not likely this…

Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…
