Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen to the NBA Finals on NBC. I’m Marv Albert and joining me in the booth are Doug Collins and Isaiah Thomas. For those of you just tuning in, you couldn’t have picked a better time. It’s moments like these that give us reason to watch sports. That’s right folks, it’s Game 7 of the 1998 NBA Finals!no comments

I have always prided myself on being the biggest optimist when it comes to my Timberwolves. But for the first time in my long history of following this team, I just don’t have anything good to say.no comments
Tonight’s game versus the Lakers was the first time I had watched the Wolves in roughly four weeks. Thankfully, they made it very entertaining for me. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been ridiculously busy and haven’t even had time to speed through the games on TiVo. Hopefully things will stay calm the rest of the season so I can enjoy the Wolves final stretch.
Some observations on tonight’s game:no comments
Well, it turns out the Timberwolves will get a first place finish in something after all…
Forbes.com recently ranked the general managers in the four major sports to determine who’s the best. And to the shock of many Timberwolves fans who have been calling for his head the past three years, our very own Kevin McHale was ranked #1.no comments
I’ll take a cue from College Wolf’s “Musings of a Wolves Fan” and call this post my “Grumblings”. Because after ten straight days of having to wake up at the crack of dawn to go to school and lots of studying and late nights “on call”, I’m a little bit cranky and definitely very, very tired.no comments
As many of you have probably noticed, there’s been a severe lack of posts on TWolvesBlog.com lately. Our forum is still buzzing, but I’ve done an awful job at keeping up with my front page duties. In all honesty, the lack of headlines has a lot more to do with my busy school schedule than it does with me neglecting to write them.no comments
You have absolutely no idea how badly I hate typing this. But I honestly have no idea what else can be done to save this franchise from four or five years of complete mediocrity. With the way the Wolves are currently playing, and the apparent lack of good attitudes, something drastic has to be done.no comments
There’s nothing quite like watching your team climb back from a fifteen-point deficit, only to have a terrible, terrible call ruin the whole thing. It ranks right up there with Nickleback, root canals, and getting kicked in the no-no’s. So needless to say, I’m not very happy at the moment.no comments
This article appears on www.derok.net/wolves. I think it brings some perspective on the first half of the season with some interesting statistics.
After watching the Timberwolves squander a five point lead with a minute to go last night and lose their sixth consecutive game in a row, one thing was painfully clear: The Wolves need some serious mental conditioning.no comments
The Timberwolves finally make the move that everyone’s been waiting a year for in firing Dwane Casey, and the national media are tearing them to shreds. ESPN’s abuzz with questions of why the Timberwolves, a consensus pick for the lottery, would fire their coach when they’re at .500 and currently locked in for the 8th spot in the West. These types of questions and arguments further cement the fact that the talking heads at ESPN are slightly lacking in the brain department.no comments
