Getting LeBron James Back to Miami
Blogs

When it comes to LeBron James, nothing is off the table, no player untouchable, especially on the Miami Heat roster. We must rid ourselves of all assumptions. We can’t assume LeBron doesn’t want to play with Hassan Whiteside. We also can’t assume Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman isn’t willing to take on Whiteside’s massive contract spanning this year and next if he opts into his player option. Not too long ago general managers all over the league would have welcomed Whiteside,...

Phoenix Suns Reason for hope: Starting lineup gets two potential upgrades The Suns got a lot better through the draft, and while they might...

10 things we learned from every NBA Playoff Game 1
Blogs

The NBA Playoffs tipped off over the weekend, and the results of every Game 1 gives us a glimpse of what we can expect in the first round. Here’s what we learned from every NBA Playoff Game 1. 1. Even without Stephen Curry, the Warriors are too much for the Spurs If Klay Thompson keeps shooting like he did on Saturday, the Warriors won’t need Stephen Curry in the first round.

Thibodeau should step down as Timberwolves head coach
Blogs

Tom Thibodeau is not the right coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves, or any NBA team given the state of the game, and it hurts me to write that. I don’t enjoy writing the “fire the coach/GM” letter. I hope no one does. Calling someone’s job performance into question publicly isn’t something I long to do. I’m not the current President. Firing people isn’t my thing. But when I feel a change is needed to improve the product for which I...

Blogs

The eventual champion of the 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament may not get a chance to hang a championship banner from its rafters if the Federal Bureau of Investigation wants it that way. Given what we know about the investigation uncovering recruitment violations committed by seemingly every contending college basketball program, 2018 might be a repeat of 2013. If you remember, Louisville emerged from March Madness as champion that year only to have that championship vacated for paying escorts to...

Without Jimmy Butler, Timberwolves’ playoff hopes in doubt
Blogs

The Minnesota Timberwolves are a mess without Jimmy Butler, and the question isn’t whether Butler will be able to return for the playoffs, but if the Wolves can make the playoffs without him. Karl-Anthony Towns did everything he could to carry his Wolves to a win in Portland to no avail on Thursday night. He scored 34 points on 11-of-19 shooting, went 11-for-12 from the free throw line and grabbed 17 rebounds, which was still only good enough for a...

Never a better time to see the Timberwolves at Target Center
Blogs

If you’ve driven near downtown Minneapolis lately, you’ve surely noticed how different (and better) Target Center looks on the outside. Target’s mascot Bullseye looks much more at home shaking his tail on the north side of Target Center overlooking Target Field. But it’s what’s inside Target Center that makes the new Minnesota Timberwolves experience worth every penny. The Product There has never been a Timberwolves team with so much potential. What head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau...
