Without KAT, DLo and, I guess, Juancho, the Timberwolves defeat the Pelicans. Jack Borman (Canis Hoopus) joins me at Target Center to discuss how exactly the Wolves pulled off a win without their two best players. We get into why this felt like "The Rubio Game" and how Rubio's success on Saturday night almost complicates things going forward.…
 
Another blowout Timberwolves against the Hawks loss got me thinking about how crazy it is that Tom Thibodeau is having more success with the Knicks than the Wolves are having without him, despite New York having a far cheaper payroll. So on today's pod, we get into how the Wolves are just not living up to what there payroll suggests they should be.…
 
Britt Robson (The Athletic) joins the pod to discuss a myriad of topics, including where blame falls on a Timberwolves team that just blew another fourth quarter lead to Orlando and currently sits at 3-10 -- with no real end in sight. Why it feels as if everything is coming to a head. And what decisions might need to be made.…

On today's pod, we discuss if this is the end of the road for Ryan Saunders. Where Saunders could have called timeouts down the stretch to potentially shift the balance of the game. The similarities between this breakdown and the breakdown in the Jersey Tuck Game in Oklahoma City. Why that game against the Thunder might have impacted Saunders' deci…
 
On today's pod, we get into another Timberwolves game without KAT. How they lost to an underwhelming Hawks team and where the breakdowns happened around DLo (who balled out again). It's also time for a Jarrett Culver Conversation, so we go through how Culver has compared to the other picks from the 2019 Draft Class. How many players would be select…
 
On today's pod, we unfortunately need to discuss how COVID has struck the Minnesota Timberwolves. Included is audio from Gersson Rosas' Friday evening press conference in which he describes the 36 hours leading up to Friday evening's game being postponed and how this is all the more troubling given Karl-Anthony Towns' involvement.After that, we get…
 
Britt Robson of The Athletic joins today's episode to discuss the current state of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

We dig into the first real crossroads Rosas' Wolves have hit in the first season where cultivating a sustainable winner is actually about winni…
 
The Timberwolves loss to the Grizzlies highlighted the Wolves Big 3 and exposed the rest of the roster. On today's episode, we get into how and where the Wolves need support beyond Towns, Russell and Beasley. We listen to KAT's postgame ramblings about defense, and question if that's all they need. Do they just need to score more? What is going on …
 
Ten games into the NBA careers of Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball and James Wiseman felt like a good time to dive into the film of the top-3 picks' early NBA impact.

The Timberwolves loss in Portland felt like a regression -- similar to the losses in Los Angeles. On today's pod, we discuss why being a standard deviation below "bad team" could be costly, and why it's time to right the ship. Ricky Rubio says: "We gotta get better and we gotta get better now." How the Lillard-Nurkic pick and roll led to 47-point s…
 
In advance of Blazers-Timberwolves, Steve Dewald of Blazer's Edge joins the pod. Steve and I discuss the similarities between what the Wolves are building and what the Blazers have built. What is the ceiling of a "good offense, bad defense" team? How has Robert Covington fit in Portland thus far? Could Minnesota have outbid Portland for Derrick Jon…

Submit your Blue Wire Hust…
 
Jarred Vanderbilt finally got his shot -- and he DID NOT disappoint. On today's pod, we discuss the Timberwolves second loss to the Denver Nuggets -- another game that fell apart in the 4th quarter. We get into the obstacles in the way of Vanderbilt permanently fitting into the rotation, and why it feels like Ryan Saunders has to make it happen. Ju…

On today's pod, Britt Robson (The Athletic) joins to discuss why what Karl-Anthony Towns showed in the first two games is more reason for optimism than the two blowout losses in Los Angeles are reason for pessimism. We unpack Britt's most recent column that acknowledges the devastating, albeit expected, losses but also praises KAT's best defense of…
 
Losing two games the way the Timberwolves lost to the Lakers and Clippers is a slippery slope. Today we discuss the Wolves needing to inject joy back into basketball, even without KAT. On the show: we react to Ricky Rubio's harsh postgame commentary (audio included); discuss the Rubio-DLo pairing; what is going on in the frontcourt next to Naz Reid…
 
In the 15-game stretch the Timberwolves played without Karl-Anthony Towns at the beginning of last season, they ranked third in the NBA over that stretch in defensive efficiency. They only won five of those 15 games, but they played with the identity of a team that executes on defense. On today's pod, I talk about this new Timberwolves roster findi…
