Wolf Tracks 4/2

Not too much to report today, seeing the Wolves don’t play till tomorrow night. Hopefully that nice little two day break gave them enough time to harness that momentum and beat the Miami Heat with a good showing tomorrow night. Here are today’s Wolf Tracks:

Timberwolf Tracks:

  • Patience of all Wolves fans, players and front office management have run dry but more-so in the case of the owner, Glen Taylor. He can’t wait to get his chance to pounce on the off-season.

“We’re going to start meeting immediately at the end of the season to put the opportunities in place to improve this team next year,” Taylor said. “We have a lot of them. We have the opportunities for our draft (currently three first-round picks); we’ll see what (lottery) positions we get.

“We’ll have the opportunity to look at other players, and possibly trades if we feel that will help our team.

“So (management) is going to be really active and we’re going to start really early to prepare ourselves. We have a lot of work to do; I’m excited about working with the guys on that.”

  • Phase II of the “Run With the Pack” Campaign, engage!
  • The Bleacher Report ponders whether the three-headed monster – Al Jefferson, Kevin Love and Darko Milicic — can coincide with each other and become a dominating rotation in the league for possibly years to come.
  • Now I thought this was real interesting. Here is the new — and blunt — ad campaign for the Timberwolves:

Opinions? I would love to hear what you guys think.

Truehoop Tracks:

  • Last night during the Nuggets game, “Birdman” Chris Andersen went to his back on the floor after rolling his ankle. The real mystery comes from this mysterious nugget of gold that landed in his mouth when being attended to. Anyone have any ideas of what it may be?
  • Reality television can now lie to rest upon the conclusion of Ron Artest’s up-and-coming show “They Call Me Crazy”. My reality-show watching days will soon be over and in a peaceful state after watching Mr. Artest make a fool of himself — hopefully.

    Other Tracks:

    • A few guys, Al-Farouq Aminu and Cole Aldrich, have declared for the 2010 NBA Draft.
    • Two guys are still undecided whether they will leave their respective NCAA teams for the NBA. Both John Wall and Evan Turner are still skeptical… That is until they see the dollar signs! $$$
