Report: Kevin Love Won’t Sign Extension & Will Opt Out Next Summer

Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love

According to reports from ESPN and Yahoo, Kevin Love‘s future in Minnesota is hanging by a thread as he’s informed ‘Wolves brass he doesn’t play to opt-in for the last year of his deal, and plans to test the free agency market next summer. While not demanding a trade, it makes more sense for Minnesota to deal him — especially after some recent Ricky Rubio comments about Love’s role as Minnesota’s leader. Read More »

Ricky Rubio Behind-The-Back Dime For The Dieng Dunk

Trey Burke, Ricky Rubio

Ricky Rubio might be shooting 38 percent on the season, which is actually higher than his first two seasons. His shooting distress might make him a liability at the point guard position, and he might gamble a little too much for steals besides being an otherwise decent defender. But the man can still dazzle passing the ball, which he showed again with a fancy behind-the-back dish to a trailing Gorgui Dieng on Wednesday. Read More »

Video: Omer Asik Snuffs Mbah A Moute’s Dunk At Rim

Omer Asik, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute

With a Timberwolves team hungry for a playoff berth, but still far enough away to make a No. 8 seed improbable, the Rockets had a tall task on hand, especially when considering Dwight Howard was out after having a fluid-filled cyst removed from his left ankle. That meant long-disgruntled backup Omer Asik would start in his place, and the Turkish 7-footer didn’t disapppoint during one epic stuff of Minney’s Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. 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.

Video: Ricky Rubio’s Falling Backward Left-Handed Layup

Goran Dragic, Ricky Rubio

This looks like Goran Dragic just wants to hold Ricky Rubio‘s hand. Ricky, or Rick to friends, skipped past Dragic at the top of the key tonight when he crossed over to his left hand. But Goran wouldn’t let him go, and grabbed Rubio’s right arm before pulling him back to prevent the bucket. The foul spins Ricky towards the other side of the court. Rubio blindly flicks the ball with his left, off-hand into the net and says “Ta Da!” Read More »

Ricky Rubio’s Sorta Kinda No-Look Pass To Kevin Love

Ricky Rubio

We’re obsessed with the semantics of a no-look pass. The Suns gave us two “real” examples Tuesday night this week. Nene showed us a real no-look in the season’s first month, and Jeremy Lin had a no-look in December. Did Ricky Rubio toss one last night when the Nuggets came to town? Read More »
