Hello .500!

The last time the Timberwolves had a record of .500 was midway through the 2006-07 season, four games after firing coach Dwane Casey. Yep, 390 games ago. As CanisHoopus pointed out, Stomp the Yard (one of our favorite movies at Timberpups.com) was in theaters way back then.

The way we see things, it is all too fitting that the Wolves reaching .500 for the first time in 1,832 days will likely be remembered as the game that Kevin Love stomped on poor Luis Scola’s face. The jury is out on Mr. Love’s left foot, but it didn’t look good. The Timberwolves will hope it doesn’t lead to suspension, and we hope that intentional or not, it doesn’t happen again. KLove shouldn’t be mixed up in news like this, and Luis Scola deserves a ton of credit for keeping his cool through it all.

No one needs to tell Timberwolves fans that it has been a long, long time since the club didn’t have a losing record (261 weeks, 5 days). There have been good times, along with plenty of bad. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve cheered, we’ve jeered. Below is a list of every player to record a stat for the Wolves since January 29, 2007 (59 in total). Enjoy.
