When Malik Beasley returns from his 12-game suspension, it will be 5 weeks and 4 days from the date D’Angelo Russell was given the 4-6 week timetable from his knee injury. Maybe they both come back for the same game (March 26 against Houston)?
West is the comp from 2010 for pleading guilty to his weapon charges. NBA doesn’t eff with guns. Still didn’t expect this many games. #Timberwolves
Malik Beasley was just suspended more games (12) than Vernon Maxwell was for punching a fan (10) and Delonte West was for speeding on a motorcycle with a guitar case full of loaded weapons (10). Weirdest. Team. Ever.
Wolves pulling out all the stops to keep that top-3 protected pick... KAT missing half the season, DLo knee surgery, Beasley 12-game suspension, midseason coaching change... Basketball gods still getting ready to taketh away... 😂😐
The Hornets and Timberwolves are similar beyond the LaMelo-Ant connection. Similar amounts of talent, and similarly young. Hornets when leading after 3rd Qs this year: 12-0 (league-best) Wolves: 5-8 (league-worst) Hornets eFG% in clutch: .663 (league-best) Wolves: .448 (27th)
NBA L2M Report says KAT's 6th foul was INCORRECT call (only marginal contact). Big b/c MIN wasn't trying to foul down 1 w/ :12.3 left & :06 on shot clock. That call then forced MIN to foul & go down 3. Tied it on Rubio's 3 FT (CORRECT call) but didn't have KAT for OT.
This is interesting and includes a note that Glen Taylor went to the #NBA a few months ago with a pitch to sell to Arctos, a private-equity firm formed in 2019, to buy small stakes in teams. But the idea was shot down. #Timberwolves #RaisedByWolves
Had fun this afternoon talking for a long time with former Suns GM @McDNBA about the #Timberwolves. #RaisedByWolves
