Who Wants To Be A Point Guard For The Timberwolves?

Sebastian Telfair

Despite a solid win last night in Sacramento, the 2-7 Timberwolves need point guard help. Fast. After offseason hip surgery, Jonny Flynn has yet to play a game and is still one to three weeks away from returning. Luke Ridnour is out at least a week with a hamstring injury.

With Kentucky plowing through everyone this season to a current No. 3 ranking in the country, and their trio of impact freshmen (John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe) playing beyond expectations, it got me thinking about past great UK games. One game in particular will always stand out in my memory: the 2005 Elite Eight, Kentucky vs. Michigan State. Read More »

Tom Izzo has built himself nothing short of a dynasty in his time at Michigan State. It’s no secret, but the Spartans are built top to bottom again this year. From reigning Big Ten POY, Kalin Lucas, to future NBA check collectors Delvon Roe and Durrell Summers, Sparty is looking good. Read More »
