The Minnesota Timberwolves finished exactly where many expected this season: on the outside looking in for a final playoff spot in the brutal Western Conference. They were one loss to the Jazz in their finale from going 41-41 on the year, but that record wasn’t going to cut it in the West this year. Despite their improved record, sources recently revealed coach Rick Adelman will not be returning to coach the ‘Wolves for the 2014-15 season. Read More »

As much as we love to talk about the sleepers and the busts, fantasy championships are won by the stars. Just as in real life, if you have a Kevin Durant or a LeBron James or a Dwight Howard, you can ride them deep into the playoffs. Read More »

Kevin Love was 7-for-11 for 22 points in the first quarter Monday night, but Stephen Curry was right there with him, pouring in 15 points on 4-for-6 shooting. For the night, Love finished with 40 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists, but he had 26 of those points and 10 of those rebounds in the first half alone. Curry also did most of his damage in the first half, but he helped the Dubs to the win at the end. Read More »

Last season the Knicks finished second in the East, winning 54 games and reached the Eastern Conference Semifinals before falling to Indiana. However, a lot has changed in one season. Read More »

Even though he’s under contract through the 2014-15 season, and has a player option for 2015-16, Kevin Love has turned into the player du jour as we come up on the end of the 2013-14 season. A source familiar with Love’s thinking tells ESPN Los Angeles, it’s not just LA that’s an appealing destination if he were traded , but also Chicago and New York. It seems the small market ‘Wolves don’t hold the appeal of the bigger cities. Read More »

If you watched the NCAA tournament this past weekend, you had the chance to witness that the best teams do not always win. We saw Duke lose to a 14-seeded Mercer team that destroyed all of our brackets, while also witnessing Kansas, Ohio State, Syracuse, North Carolina and Wichita State all fall early. Having the best talent can only get you so far when it comes to tournament time. In a tournament where anything can happen, it takes a great team that plays together to win the NCAA title–not just a group of individuals. Read More »

Video: Kevin Love Hits Game-Winner In OT Past Triple-Team

The Mavs played him perfectly, forcing him to pick up his dribble on the left block with Devin Harris on his hip, Shawn Marion coming to double and Jae Crowder hovering in the area for a seemingly insurmountable triple-team. And Kevin Love hesitated, just a tad, before pump-faking and bumping Harris in the chest. He pivoted through Marion’s double-team for some open space that had seemed like a mirage just a millisecond earlier. Brandan Wright was right there, too, but Love’s leaner arced over Wright’s outstreched hand and rattled through the iron to give the Timberwolves a 123-122 edge with just 11.1 seconds in overtime.

Report: The Cavs Still Think They Can Lure LeBron

Since LeBron James left Cleveland after the nationally televised debacle known simply as “The Decision,” Cavs owner Dan Gilbert sent a letter to fans bathed in bitterness. Since that time, cooler heads have prevailed, and now the Cavs still think they can land LeBron; except, the firing of former GM Chris Grant and the subsequently morose Zydrunas Ilgauskas may have opened the same wounds that made James’ return to Ohio completely untenable.
