ESPN.com’s Bill Simmons posted his NBA Lottery Karma Index today. I couldn’t believe how skewed his view of the Timberwolves was. He felt that the Blazers, Bucks, Grizzlies, Celtics, and Sonics were all far more deserving of the picks than the Wolves. Has our front office made some incredibly awful decisions that have gotten us to this point? Yeah. Did we probably tank a little to get where we are? Yeah.no comments

April 2004: After watching the Timberwolves decimate the Nuggets in the first game of the 2004 NBA Playoffs, I shake Kevin McHale’s hand and gush like a school girl as I thank him for assembling an unbelievable team.

Seeing as there’s absolutely no Timberwolves-related news to discuss, I thought I’d take the time to promote my newest site, MillionDollarFlashGame.com. The launching of this site is the culmination of an idea that has been bouncing around in my head for the past few months.no comments
From The Minnesota Timberwolves Den at DeROK.Net:
It seems that the history of the Minnesota Timberwolves is destined to be defined by years. It took the franchise seven years to earn its first playoff berth. It took another eight before the Wolves would win a playoff series. And now the earth has spun around the sun three times since this team last played post-season basketball.no comments

I don’t think that there’s any argument about what the greatest KG Moment is for Timberwolves fans. In the vast history of this franchise, filled with disappointments and heartbreaks, this moment shines as one of the few where the Timberwolves nation experienced pure euphoria.no comments
I got stuck with call at the hospital yesterday, so I wasn’t able to post KG moment #3. So today, I’m putting up a double-feature with moments #2 and #3.
KG Moment #3 - “I’m Losing.”no comments
February 10th, 2003
As a Timberwolves fan in 2003, I was desperate for any accolades that my team could earn. The franchise was 14 years old at that point, and its greatest acheivement was Isaiah Rider’s victory in the 1994 Slam Dunk Competition. So with a championship really out of the question, my goals for the team were twofold: 1. Get out of the first round of the playoffs. 2. Have Kevin Garnett become the All-Star Game MVP.no comments
With only five games remaining for the Timberwolves in the 2006-2007 season, there’s an outside chance that Minnesota fans may only have five more games to watch Kevin Garnett in a Wolves jersey. I’m not going to take the time right now to speculate or state my opinion on the subject matter. Ultimately, that decision is in the hands of Kevin McHale and The Big Ticket, himself. However, what I would like to do, just in case I really do have only five more games to root for my hero, is to recap some of my favorite KG moments. With five games left, the plan is to do a mini-countdown of these moments on each game day. Without further ado, here’s #5…no comments
