Dane Moore NBA Podcast: Britt Robson On The Timberwolves Season Thus Far

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ Need a distraction? Britt Robson of The Athletic joins the pod to discuss a set of storylines from this Minnesota Timberwolves season that were not anticipated at the year’s onset, including: Why the Jarred Vanderbilt infatuation feels justified. What is his role once Josh Okogie returns? What about when Karl-Anthony Towns returns?

Photo by Bart Young/NBAE via In another Minnesota Timberwolves loss to the Denver Nuggets, Jarred Vanderbilt finally got his shot — and he DID NOT disappoint. On today’s pod, we discuss a variety of topics that suggest the Wolves might just be a normal bad team. Vanderbilt proving his worth. But what is his role going forward? Can he play next to Naz Reid? Is that his only way into the rotation after Josh Okogie returns (probably next game)? Juancho Hernangomez showing the confident version of the player he was signed to be. Plus: Why Juancho’s synergy with...

The Minnesota Timberwolves haven’t been blown out in over 24 hours, which is reason enough to celebrate on the first official Tuesday of 2021. After a disappointing home stand against the Wizards and Nuggets, the Wolves are back on the road for two tough contests against Northwest Division foes — Nuggets and Blazers — before returning home for an extended homestand which includes two games against both the Spurs and Grizzlies.

The Timberwolves Need To Look In The Mirror After L.A. Performances

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports After winning their first two games of the season, the Timberwolves were blown out in back-to-back games. Can they fix the problems before it’s too late? When the first half of the NBA schedule originally came out, no reasonable Minnesota Timberwolves fan expected victories against either the Lakers or Clippers, especially with both games taking place in Los Angeles. With Karl-Anthony Towns and Josh Okogie added to the injury report, expectations fell even lower to simply hoping for competitive basketball. I mean, why not? The...

Minnesota Timberwolves (2-1) at Los Angeles Clippers (2-1)9:00 CSTFox Sports After the early optimism spurred by two victories over the Pistons and Jazz, the early season has taken a rapid turn for the worst. Two of the Wolves starters are now injured, as Karl-Anthony Towns is week-to-week with his wrist injury and Josh Okogie’s scary leg injury has turned from “cramping” into a strained hamstring. Thankfully, both injuries are hopefully more manageable than they originally appeared on the court,...

Timberwolves Exercise Team Options on Josh Okogie and Jarrett Culver

Photo by Stacy Revere/ The latest news out of Minnesota isn’t surprising, but still noteworthy. The Minnesota Timberwolves announced late Monday evening that the team had indeed exercised the fourth-year option on Josh Okogie and the third-year option on Jarrett Culver. While this doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone, it is still worth mentioning as I believe the deadline to pick up these options was sometime today.

Dane Moore NBA Podcast: Observations From The Timberwolves Season Opener

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ The Minnesota Timberwolves enter the Christmas Break undefeated with a win over the Detroit Pistons. We got some good soundbites from the players postgame, so I let that carry today’s show — beginning with Karl-Anthony Towns discussing where he’s at mentally. If how you play basketball is a reflection of your personality, what might that mean for the new KAT? From there we get into Anthony Edwards kinda-sorta looking NBA ready. We talk Josh Okogie being the team’s best power forward, shutting down Blake Griffin, and the lineup...
