More on


  • I have all three on my fantasy team 😬

  • This team will be nice in 2/3 years really curious on who they draft this year tho Bc this draft class is mainly gaurd dominant and they already have dlo and Edwards and they don’t really need a big with towns and naz Reid and then they also drafted McDaniels so I’m really curious to see what they do with their pick this year

  • As being a Minnesotan. The wolves are just as bad, worthless and embarrassment as the Minneapolis city council, Gov. Walz and Omar. A absolutely a dumpster fire here in Minnesota. Edwards is going to leave because that’s the history of the wolves and treating their players. KAt is weak and Russell hasn’t really played. We got a bunch of scrubs on the court who many can’t even name ... even Ray Charles could see how bad the team and state of MN are going

  • How is it difficult to work Russell and Edwards in together when they have like 7 wins without Russell? And since when is a small forward considered part of the back court?

  • Dlo played a lot of off ball on the Nets with Dinwiddie and led us to the playoffs playing that way... he can easily do that in Minnesota with Edwards

  • How can u “audition” Kobe?

  • Good thing A-rod buying the team

  • No beef... but lowkey I think this is the first time I’ve heard a female sports analyst know what she’s talking about AND makes sense

  • Same bs since KG days

  • ant Edwards is good and only a rookie i keep him and KAT is too soft so idk what u do with him bc he can play

  • Dlo to washington next to beal rui deni would be fireeeeeeee

  • Minnesota players simply don't care about playing winning basketball. They should've backed KG to set the CULTURE for future players.

  • That group can not work they need a Mobley brother n get Rubio out of there he suck

  • Dude that would be so brutally, if the T'wolves got the 4th pick in the draft and had to give to Golden State

  • DLo can okay off ball, he’s a sniper, stop moving him around n let him build!

  • Start edwards and have russel come off the bench and drop 25

  • leave it to lady shrek to break it down to us

  • Those players are so feminine.

  • No offense, but how can anyone listen to a white mid aged, never to have played basketball lady talking?

  • The wolves always look good on paper......but thays it

  • Ant been averaging like 23ppg in his last 10 games

  • Trade KAT to golden state .....Wiseman and draymond could use another big down low fasho 🔥

  • Man melo feeding KAT on the pick and roll with Russell of the ball would have been scary

  • Vancouver NBA team?

  • They need some veterans that are defensive to help these young guys. Andre Roberson for example

  • DLo is a liability DLo must go

  • Lamelo ball wouldve been a better fit

  • Why don’t they trade KAT dlow and Edwards for LAamelo?

  • So did people forget about Malik

  • Ramona hot tho just off she knows sports. And Doris

  • Russel is a PG and Edwards a SG I don’t see how u can’t make that work

  • They should have did whatever they had to To keep Jimmy Buckets he brought that toughness and leadership Although I think Jimmy made the right choice for himself to leave I still think Minnesota should have did more to try to keep him

  • Karl Towns😐

  • its not difficult cuz edwards can defend. Get him to master defense and threes have him dominate without handling the ball then second year after dlo established trust as primary pg have him run a devin booker role or have him run occassional pg

  • Don’t forgot Beasley his important for the t wolves

  • get KAT out of there! dont make me say wich team he should go...however...none of what I say matters.😁👍🏼

  • audition Over; its F'ng ShowTime!

  • worst franchise in nba history

  • If the timberwolves split these 3 up they’ll regret it

  • This lady’s nostrils are taking up a majority of this video

  • auditioning? how about just build around them..... dlo, kat and edwards as the core, well it's the timberwolves so....

  • I like her she knows what she’s talking about‼️

  • Melo would be made this team a lot better because of his all around point guard style but I’m glad he’s in Charlotte their better for him

  • Towns has been playing hard.

  • i guess the twolves will throw this season too for another top 4 pick

  • Trade Russell to the Knicks they need him bad

  • Cant think of a worde journalist/media personality than Ramona Shelburne

  • How do national on camera people not have a better camera setup at this point in the covid game?


  • Auditioning? For other teams. Meant conditioning?

  • DLo and Ant are just like Kyrie and James of the nets.

  • Kat is so overrated

  • I Think these guys could have something special but Kat has to be the guy he has to get tough and and start balling again how he did his second year ....get the right coach and the right supporting cast and I think they could be contenders gotta get some vets tho

  • Next year- 1. Russell 2. Beasley 3. Edwards 4. McDaniels 5. Towns This NEEDS to be a monster offense at the very least healthy next year.

  • “The TimberWolves are such a waste of a Franchise.” - a Washington Wizards Fan

    • @President L. Davis the franchise has a championship and the team has been in the playoff picture since we had Gilbert Arenes .

    • Takes one to know one, so a Wizards fan is very qualified!

    • I mean wizard is a great team that at least makes the playoffs and would probably gotten a far if John wall wasn't injured a lot

    • You’re one to talk then

    • Was bout to say watch your mouth lol but that's cold

  • Trade Kat to Miami

  • That’s the girl who said I only vote for MVP “solely by name and face” not the work they put in, the results, and the stats.

  • They should be hoping to keep the pick in the draft GSW watching closely

  • I call BS. There’s no sense in auditioning KAT when he has like 2-3 yrs left on his contract.

  • Hate to say it Beasley is on the wrong team Powell is developing fast

  • MR EDD

  • The Most dumbest franchise..I feel bad for their fans

  • Title made it sound like they were auditioning off the players to trade lol

  • i havent seen edwards alot but but i am not a fan d ruussel game, so if i am edward i am 19 i am not taking back seat now he proved himself to a descent almost avg pg

  • I’m sorry. But why r we still acting like KAT is a great big man. I don’t ever see greatness. He puts up numbers against teams with no true center. Soft body. Soft mentally. Not a winner. Fun how the media portrays DMC. Vs KAT. They love me some KAT. I doubt KAT will play passed his contract bc of the losses in his family. I remember at one point nba gms voted KAT as first player picked to start a franchise. But still after not making the playoffs let alone a .500 record. This is why I can’t trust the media anymore

  • Blow it up

  • trade russel wekass keep edwards at point. End of discussion.

  • they better off resting them rest of the season

  • Anthony edward a wing at 6'3, lamely a pg at 6'7 yeah espn is weird

  • Kat for the nets

  • dlo and kat should be an elite pick&roll/pick&pop duo. if they could just stop getting injured opposite each other.

  • Worst team in the nba

  • ant edwards is the real deal

  • What happened to Ricky Rubio this season :(

  • DLO is James harden esk on defense.

  • This show stinks

  • Kat Toronto

  • crazy to think that Denver had both JOKIC and NURKIC at one point what kinda future seeing scouts they got in Denver man

  • How many years Wolves are gonna have top 3 picks and still suck?

  • Ant,KatDlo & hopefully a top pick will be nice.... most likely 3 guy....

  • Easy DLO at the one, Ant at the 2, and KAT at the 5 like always

    • @Justin Wilson true I guess it just depends on the matchups really. I just think spreading some of the offense into the bench and bringing some of the defense into the starting lineup will be a better balance

    • @James DiAls maybe maybe. But maybe try both because small ball starting to work more

    • @Justin Wilson it’s too small I would have Beasley come off the bench as six man.

    • @Hoshang Merza feel like Beasley and Ant could both either be at the 2 or 3

    • What about beasly I say put dlo at 1 malik at 2 ant at 3 and kat at 5

  • They have good players. But I think it’s the organization as a whole that’s to be blamed

  • KAT needs to go to Dallas. 😊

  • The slippery russian systemically fail because deadline actually continue save a hapless shorts. short, painstaking surfboard

  • Karl Towns...sounds weird.

  • I was screaming “Take Melo” on draft night. The Timberwolves will forever be mediocre. This draft was obvious.

  • In today's game there's no excuse why these guys ain't better,ya got a PG,SG/SF and a big that suits today's game,Uncle Kev was out there with less and he was in the Playoffs in a tougher era,get healthy and get better,no excuses 😤🍻🍺

  • We don't need D Lo

  • Glad the nba is seeming somewhat even. I remember it was no good teams but the cavs and warriors

  • Timberwolves have a losing culture. None of this matters if you don’t find ways to win.

  • Those 3 are young. Wait for them to grow together smartass

  • Edwards can be Murray, russel can be porter junior kind of, and Kat can be jokic

  • Good luck copying Jokic and Denver lol

  • yeah right,, KAT being the pt guard...what kind of solution is that?

  • Auditioning? They’ve barely played together LMAO

  • Cp3 ayton and pick for KAT AND Dlo

  • Literally after I said about it yesterday😂

  • DLO is the 1 and Ant is the 2. It's that simple

  • Honestly this team i swear has the no.1 pick everytime and they still no good....come one man even if they all play together they won't win remember my man Jimmy yeah apparently was toxic to the locker room....left went to Miami and led them to a finals....the Timberwolves will forever be bad

  • It’s okay to have multiple ball handlers. In fact, that’s a good problem to have. Benefits: Injury insurance. Most championship teams need more than one handler.
