Not a great start to Darko's kickboxing career

One of the softest, most-overpaid (KAAAHHHNNN!) players in Timberwolves history lost his professional kickboxing debut in Russia yesterday.

Darko didn't look too bad in the first round of the fight, flashing more aggression than he ever did underneath the boards, but the fight was stopped early in the second round because of a deep cut on his shin.

This is an NBA Finals ticket Wolves season ticket holders received this year, prompting some to wonder whether team officials were high when these were printed.
With a roster featuring a unique blend of established veterans and young, athletic prospects, the 2014-15 Minnesota Timberwolves should be a fun team to follow, if not a successful one in terms of wins and losses.

But if one U of M student's experience is any indication, locals aren't buying it just yet. Because that student, Kirby Horgan of Mound, apparently couldn't give away a free ticket to last night's home opener.

Kevin Love's Goodbye Letter to Minnesota Stirs One Last Controversy

k love new rect.jpg
Parting is such sweet sorrow -- unless you wind up with LeBron. Then it's mostly sweet.
Kevin Love finally got around to saying goodbye to Minnesota.

Yesterday, Deter Jeter's new website, The Players' Tribune, published an essay by Love entitled, "How I Spent My Summer Vacation." Referring to the month-long period late in the summer during which the departure he requested from Minnesota was pending, Love writes, "With everything up in the air, I felt like I couldn't say a proper goodbye to Minnesota. And once the trade finally went through, everything happened quickly."

Timberwolves, MPD Team Up to Provide "Bomb Security" at Wolves Games

For the first full season ever, the Timberwolves are allocating funds to keep Target Center safe from bombs.
An item on the most recent Minneapolis public safety committee agenda, later approved by the full City Council last Friday, caught our eye.

It reads, "Bomb Security Services for Minnesota Timberwolves Games" and allocates $44,640 in city funds -- a total to be reimbursed by the team -- for that purpose.

Sure, it's not as sexy as Madison Square Garden, but making a D-League roster means you're just one step away from the NBA.
Wanna play in the NBA?

Here's your chance. No, seriously, we're not bullshitting, if you have the skills you really have a chance!

Glen Taylor puts Kevin Love on blast

KLoveGT.jpg
Taylor is bitter over K-Love decision to dump the T-Wolves.
During his introductory news conference yesterday in Cleveland, Kevin Love followed Denny Green's path down the high road.

"I loved my time there. The people of Minnesota were great," Love said. "The fans were great. They showed up win, lose or draw... It was a great six years. I enjoyed my time."

Back in Minnesota, Wolves owner Glen Taylor wasn't as sanguine, however.

Bye Bye K-Love: A tribute to a Timberwolves all-time great [VIDEO]

The K-Love era stunk from a wins-and-losses standpoint, but his individual greatness can't be denied.
With the blockbuster trade now finalized, there will be plenty of time to get excited about the new batch of young, athletic Timberwolves, headlined by top draft choice Andrew Wiggins, who will be publicly introduced to Minnesota by Flip Saunders during a press conference at the State Fair tomorrow.

But before we let ourselves completely wig out about Wiggins, we want to take a moment and recognize Kevin Love for the relatively thankless job he's done establishing himself as the unquestioned second-best player in T-Wolves franchise history over the past six years.

K-Love is a beast, but it's time for a change of scenery.
Cleveland fans were pissed as hell when LeBron took his talents to South Beach in 2010 and burned his jerseys on the streets to show it.

Sure, Kevin Love ain't no Bron. But as news broke last week that he's on his way out of town, you'd expect there to be some First Avenue angst about the second-best player in Timberwolves history leaving Minneapolis, wouldn't you?

When this was taken in June, Wolves fans couldn't have imagined Andrew Wiggins would play his first game for Minnesota. But thanks to LeBron, it appears he will.
Two months ago, the Timberwolves were in a tough spot. Kevin Love had already made it clear he wanted out of Minneapolis, and the most enticing available trade looked to be with Golden State, where the best player coming our way, guard Klay Thompson, would be hitting restricted free agency next summer and looking for a huge long-term contract.

Basketball considerations aside, Flip Saunders and company couldn't have been reassured to hear Klay's dad, former University of Minnesota star Mychael Thompson, go on the radio in California and say he was "depressed" and "disappointed" about the rumors linking his son to the Timberwolves. Thompson, in fact, said he was "going to have to talk [Klay] down off the ledge" if he was traded to Minnesota.
