In the Lakers’ 120-117 win over the Timberwolves last night, Kobe Bryant fouled Ricky Rubio on a three point attempt in the closing seconds of the game. But the thing is, the referees didn’t call it.

At least Timberwolves fans won’t hate me for it. [...]
Kevin Love is in the dog house right now. After his highly critical interview about the Timberwolves with Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Love tried to clarify his statements by saying things like “I’d love to end my career as a Timberwolf” and “I do believe this is the closest-knit team that we have.” But according to the crowds reaction [...]
The last time we saw Brandon Roy was on November 9th against the Indiana Pacers. The three time all-star has since undergone his seventh career arthroscopy surgery and has faced over 1,000 questions on whether or not he believes this is the nail in the coffin. Whilst [...]
