Chase Budinger 19 Points Full Highlights (12/19/2014)

Usually my made-up nicknames for players are stated in jest. However, Chase Budinger’s nickname “Chasetity Belt” is proclaimed straight-faced and without humorous intent. This is because Chase Budinger’s play with the Timberwolves is much like wearing a chastity belt against one’s will. Chase is not aggressive at all, in much the same way that a…

Zach LaVine 22 Points/10 Assists Full Highlights (12/6/2014)

“Zach’s one of those guys that just doesn’t care.” A pretty damning quote, huh? Especially coming from his own team’s commentator. I am outraged. This guy gets paid tons of money to play basketball and he can’t even manage a little enthusiasm for his job? Athletes these days are the most entitled little brats that…

Anthony Bennett 14 Points Full Highlights (12/6/2014)

Those who expected an Anthony Bennett resurgence in Minnesota are sure to be disappointed. True, he hasn’t been as absolutely god-awful as he was in Cleveland. He’s taken the three-pointer out of his repertoire entirely, so his shooting numbers look a little bit better, but he’s still a former first pick, and just being “not…

Shabazz Muhammad 20 Points Full Highlights (12/5/2014)

Just last game, Shabazz “Bozzy” Muhammad took a significant step forward in his development as an NBA player. It happened right before my eyes, and it astounded me. I don’t doubt that Man Tears were shed in the Target Center as it occurred. Shabazz made a contested, long two-pointer. This is the first phase of…

Zach LaVine 17 Points/1 Dunk Full Highlights (12/5/2014)

Don’t even try to tell me that Zach LaVine is not a white person. Do not even try. Look at the thumbnail. That thumbnail does not depict a black person. I know race is an artificial construct designed to divide when we should be concentrating on uniting, but damn. He’s white. The second he lays…

Robbie Hummel Career High 13 Points Full Highlights (12/1/2014)

Somehow, whenever people are talking about the young talent that the Timberwolves possess, Robbie Hummel gets left out. Sure, he’s already 25 and likely on the decline, but it’s still only his second year in the league. That qualifies a player for being young talent in my book. While doing research for this description, I…

Shabazz Muhammad Career High 28 Points Full Highlights (11/30/2014)

If you are anything like me (6’5”, rippling muscles, exquisitely proportioned face, perfect jumpshot) you were really looking forward to watching the Timberwolves this year. Ricky Rubio throwing lobs to Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine? Pekovic pekking the crap out of opposing centers? Anthony Bennett not being a bust? They had an exciting thing going…

Andrew Wiggins 14 Points Full Highlights (11/21/2014)

The last good veteran player on the Timberwolves, Kevin Martin, is out indefinitely with an injury. You know what that means! Unadulterated tanking madness! Perhaps tanking isn’t the right word. They simply don’t have any choice right now but to play their young players and hope for the best. This should excite fans, like myself,…

Anthony Bennett Career High 20 Points Full Highlights (11/21/2014)

Kevin Love 16.7 ppg Andrew Wiggins 10.7 ppg + Anthony Bennett 5.9 ppg = 16.6ppg Those stats are from before tonight’s games, so the numbers for the #1 picks will go up and Love’s will go down. That’s a pretty good trade for the Wolves just from a raw production standpoint, not to mention the…

Shabazz Muhammad 17 Points/3 Dunks Full Highlights

Do not be deceived by my YouTube-enabled trickery. Shabazz Muhammad did not have a particularly good game on this outing. 6-of-15 shooting is not a very good mark, although his three dunks were a “SICK SHOW!!!!!” Bazz still only has one move, and if he ever wants to be a consistent scorer, he needs more…
