Why I'm a fan of the Minnesota Timberwolves

Not your normal journey to fandom. Kids growing up in Iowa have an interesting time choosing which professional sports teams to follow. We're a state away from teams in Minneapolis, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City and Milwaukee, and have no teams of our own to follow. The closest thing my hometown, Cedar Rapids, has to pro sports is our single-A minor league baseball team, which...

Karl-Anthony Towns responds to All-NBA snub

The All-NBA teams were announced on Thursday and, as usual, there were a few snubs. Among them was Karl-Anthony Towns.In his second NBA season, Towns averaged 25.1 points (on 54 percent shooting), 12.3 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game for the Timberwolves. In another year, that would probably be good enough for a spot on one of the three All-NBA teams. This year, however, was not...
