Aside from how he used to wrag on LaVine and float Wiggins boat he's been great to listen to since then during games.

He's broadcasted Wolves games since 1998, the first 5 years coming on the radio side. I don't believe he ever broadcasted Lynx games, but he was an assistant coach for them from 2008-2016 though....

LOL I never pay attention to broadcasters. I thought he probably broadcasted Wolves games, but I remembered him affiliated with the Lynx. :D

The team convened Wednesday for its first practice under Thibodeau, who was hired last month, during the voluntary minicamps each of the eight teams that weren't invited to the NBA bubble in Florida are able to conduct in their home markets. And, in typical fashion, Thibodeau's media availability afterward was pushed back multiple times to accommodate a practice that ran longer than scheduled.


Cant. Stop. Laughing. :lol: :lol: :lol:

oh man :(

The bad news is coming from Montenegro - former basketball player and president of Partizan and the Montenegrin national team, Nikola Pekovic (34), is infected with the corona virus and is in a condition with inflammation of both lungs.

According to the information of the Telegraph, Peković was admitted to the hospital in Podgorica with the symptoms of the kovid-19 virus a few days ago, his condition has worsened in the meantime, so he is under constant medical supervision.

This is terrible news. COVID seems to be especially bad for heavy guys like Pek, who might be my second favorite Wolf of all time.

NO! Don't take Pek too! The year has been crappy enough, we don't need this!

I can't believe he's still only 34. Hopefully the big guy powers through this.

In terms of "what could've been," Pek is one of the more depressing stories in Timberwolves history of guys who wore the uniform

I feel like for a second round pick, Pek definitely outkicked his coverage, and he made some of the games during that long dark depressing stretch watchable. He retired young and reasonably healthy.

I think you may be only remembering what you want to remember. He played 6 seasons here and never appeared in over 65 games in any of them. He almost always seemed to be dealing with some nagging injury.

For a second rounder he was a great value pick. But that wasn't the point of my post.

Easily my 2nd favorite t-wolve of all time. I did not like the Butler trade but hated the Rubio trade/Teague signing.

To think of what Rubio made of Love and Pek. Then imagining what he could have done for KAT, Wiggin, and Butler.


**** Thibs.

The irony is that Rubio was viewed more as 'bad fit' here because he is a bad shooter. I cant imagine the worse fit here than Teague. Thibs literally signed the worst starting PG in NBA.

Agree, except he retired early because his feet or leggs were not healthy.
