HoopsHype Minnesota Timberwolves twitter
To reiterate, Wolves exploring options on several fronts. No deals imminent.
Flip pretty candid on rookie Zach LaVine today: "We love him and we hate him, sometimes on the same play."
For those asking...Wolves have one preseason game left on local tv (FSN): Wednesday at Milwaukee. Only WCCO AM 830 game is Tues vs Indy
Live practice, you knuckleheads
Shabazz still in boot today, expected to practice tomorrow. Flip said with good practice days Thurs and Sat, could play by Sunday in Tulsa
Kevin Martin participated fully in love practice today, Flip said they'll see how feels tomorrow and if he's fine, could play Friday
Offensive line not blocking? Teddy: I have to get ball out quicker. WRs dropping passes? Teddy: I have to throw better balls.
I'll say this for Teddy: his teammates are going to love him because he takes the bullets for everyone. Puts it all on his shoulders
To repeat my thoughts from last night & from TV/radio the last few weeks: I expect Oregon for Seth Green. @JCLong there for us. Follow him.
What's your rotation, Wolves Nation? 9-man? 10-man? or more?
Lots of stuff yet to be revealed about these Wolves. Most teams have played at least 4 preseason games, Wolves just 2 so far.
Btw, Anthony Bennett went to the eye doctor yesterday and says he's done wearing the goggles. But he said he played well w/ him so if he...
I know it's only preseason & this is just impression from Cavs first couple games but... KLove was not just a stat-sheet stuffer on bad team
Still will be surprised if East Ridge Jr. QB Seth Green doesn't pick Oregon tomorrow morning. But I do think his love for Kill is genuine.
Funny to watch OJ Mayo and KLove on the same court tonight & think back 6 years to draft night & what's become of each of them since then
I wish Anthony Bennett a belated Happy Thanksgiving & asked if he celebrated w/ a big meal Monday. "Nah, I'm eating light," he said
So excited to give these school supplies to the kids at Prodeo Academy for my 2nd annual Kids In Need Foundation! http://t.co/k1q05oFw3Q
Flip Saunders brings up interesting point about shorter games: Role players will suffer. Starters won't be playing any less.
When asked if he expects to stay beside AW in starting lineup, Corey said, "let's be honest, when KMart comes back, I'm going to the bench"
Fesenko wasn't at practice, am told he is ill
Martin tweet should have said "live" action, not like action
Gorgui was running w/ 1st teamers Ricky, Corey, Wiggins & Thad at end of practice but Flip said it means nothing, says they mix teams often
KMartin did some like action today, flip said he expects him to be ready by Sunday's game at Tulsa vs OKC at latest
Shabazz wearing a boot today, doctor's orders to quiet tendinitis in heel. Flip doesn't expect he'll do anything til Thursday, out Friday
Just remember this about NBA announcement: Two fewer timeouts means fewer TV ads to sell
In announcing 44-minute game experiement, NBA says it's doing so to examine the flow of a shorter game
NBA just announces it will experiment with a 44-minute game for Oct. 19 Nets-Celtics. There will be 4 11-minute qtrs & fewer timeouts
Wow. NBA says it will test a 44-minute game between BKN and BOS on 10/19 to examine the flow of a shorter game.
Flip is measuring workloads for guys who played World Cup last month: JJ didn't play Fri, Ricky & Gorgui didn't practice much Saturday
Andrew Wiggins is shooting an adidas commercial at TC after practice today that will air nationally after season's start
Flip said neither KMartin nor Shabazz did much other than shoot today, he's not sure if either will play Friday in Cedar Rapids vs Bucks
Slap in the face material? Got my 1st rd of Lombardi Award balloting, and the watch list has over 100 names. Not one Gopher. Could write in.
Nice to see DT Beau Allen get meaningful snaps for the Eagles. Feel like I was just at Minnetonka HS for his college signing ceremony.
Can't confirm this completely but pretty sure Flip's parting words to his team after today's field trip: "Don't be like that."
Zimmer is flummoxed by this team. Says they practice hard and study but also remarked that he had to fine some players for being late
Zimmer might need to get stitches in his tongue. Was biting it pretty hard a few times in post game presser
Mike Zimmer: I'm the boss. Their job is to please me. Not the other way around.
here come the boo birds
