Timberwolves news! The Timberwolves have reecently released shooting guard Brandon Roy. Why, might you ask? It might have to do with the fact that in the middle of the 2011 season, Roy announced his retirement from basketball due to a degenerative knee condition, though in 2012, he decided to return to the NBA. And is this surprising to us that Roy has been let go? Not really! there are sure to be other moves with Flip Saunders on board with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Stay tuned, Timberwolves fans! We will bring you the best and most current news.

Guess what Timberwolves fans!? We have exciting news! Flip Saunders is returning to the the Timberwolves as President of Basketball Operations. This is great news for Timberwolves fans every where because Saunders coached the Wolves from 1995-2005, leading them to eight straight playoff appearances, and we know that can only be a good thing. We would all love to see that again! It is interesting because Saunders has replaced David Kahn who was actually fired on Thursday after four seasons. Saunders will have a minority stake in the franchise. I'm not really a basketball fan so I'm not sure what that means. The 58-year-old Flip Saunders, who has previously been a key player at the University of Minnesota, also showed up at a few Timberwolves games this season while he was serving as an analyst for ESPN. And he did great there. We can not wait to see Flip Saunders be a part of the Timberwolves again and what he will do with this Minnesota basketball team! Keep reading my blog to see more news from this Timberwolves fan!

All you Timberwolves fans out there, meet Terry Porter, he is an assistant coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves and we all adore him.
Did anyone know that Terry Porter was a Milwaukee native that was hired as the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks back in 2003. Prior to the 2003-04 season, Porter spent his first season as a head coach with the Sacremento Kings. He's been all over the place!
Porter came into coaching after a distinguished and successful playing career of 17 years. During those years he played with Portland, Minnesota, Miami and San Antonio. Again, he's been all over the place!
But then, in 2011, Porter was hired as an assistant coach by the Minnesota Timberwolves under Rick Adelman.

I was looking around for some Timberwolves gossip to share with all my favorite readers, but couldn't find anything too good, considering it's the Timberwolves. So, overall, the Timberwolves went 30-51 in the 2013 season and the Timberwolves went 4-12 in the Northwest. Niiiiice.
So, yikes, huh? It's not like I can dole out any excuses, but this season for the Timberwolves was kind of a worse-case-scenario deal. I mean, we saw Andrei Kirilenko return to his normal form, but then fatigue and injury took over. We loved watching Ricky Rubio (hottie) make incredible strides in his recovery (and see him at various bars around the Twin Cities every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights). But Kevin Love’s (hottie number 2) injury, and the other injuries to hit players that has infected the team all year long really put a damper on the season.
But, we loved seeing 30 wins out of the Timberwolves this season with all of these negative happenings! Also, I just turned 21 so I am excited to stalk around the bars and see my favorites Rubio and K. Love hanging around.

Meet hottie Kevin Love, a forward and center for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Kevin Love was born on September 7, 1988 in Santa Monica, California and grew up in Oregon. During his time on the Lake Oswego High School basketball team, Kevin Love was ranked as one of the nation's top basketball players. By the end of his high school basketball career, Kevin Love had established the new record as the Oregon boys' basketball all-time leading scorer with 2,628 points.
Kevin Love chose to play at UCLA. He was recognized as a Pac-10 Player of the Year and an All-American first team member. Kevin Love decided to leave UCLA without graduating and enter the NBA draft in 2008. He was a first-round 5th overall pick for the Memphis Grizzlies and quickly part of an 8-person trade to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
In 2010, Love was named to the 2010 NBA All-Star Team, the first Minnesota player since Kevin Garnett. Love is seen as one of the rejuvenating forces for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
I love watching Kevin Love on the court, he is beautiful. AND I love how him and Ricky Rubio frequent the bars and restaurants around St. Paul and Minneapolis. Now that I'm 21, it is my goal to stalk around the cities and meet them!
