What are some of the rotations the Wolves likely will use? Steve wrote in detail about this subject for the website at, which you can read here:…_look_like082314 How competitive will the Wolves roster be? How many games will they win? Is it ridiculous to think they’re a playoff team? Is Ricky Rubio capable of becoming the leader on the court for this team? Which players should Rubio aspire to be? Jason Kidd? Goran Dragic? How will Flip’s coaching strategy have to mold to this team compared to how he coached in his last turn as a head coach in the NBA. Is this the best return for an NBA superstar in league history? “It’s exciting to consider that there might be a player as fundamentally important to a team as Kevin Garnett was in Wiggins.” [Click to listen]

The Vikings showed multiple different looks with the first team defensive line in preseason game No. 3.

Purple Podcast, ep 6: Which starting positions remain unsettled? Updated: 9 days ago Andrew Krammer joins the Purple Podcast from Los Angeles to talk about the unsettled starters that remain with two games to go in the preseason. Who is in the mix to start at safety next to Harrison Smith and how did Week 2 of the preseason impact that race? Is Marcus Sherels the third cornerback? Who could challenge him before the start of the regular season? What does Mike Zimmer think of Josh Robinson? Will he even make the team? Andrew also notes an interesting wrinkle the Vikings are using on the defensive line, which includes Anthony Barr getting a look at defensive end. Barr said the plan is for him to be ready to take snaps at linebacker and at defensive end by Week 1 of the regular season. And of course, it wouldn't be a Purple Podcast without mention of the quarterbacks. The safe bet right now is that Matt Cassel will start Week 1, while Teddy Bridgewater got a nice confidence boost in the second half of Game 2 of the preseason. [Click to listen]

Sports Over Beers, episode 27: Are Wolves getting enough for Kevin Love? Updated: 19 days ago Steve McPherson (@Steventurous) joins the podcast, sponsored by Shock Top, to help answer the question: did the Wolves get enough in the reported Kevin Love-for-Andrew Wiggins trade? Who is a good player comparison for what Andrew Wiggins can be? As often is the case, we try to put this situation in terms of a relationship... What are the reasons to like this trade, other than the overall athleticism of the roster? (Hint: "I like dunks.") Wolves fans are tired of hearing the organization preach patience, so in that regard should the Wolves have taken more of a sure thing with the Chicago Bulls package or the Golden State Warriors package? What’s the best thing you can hope for in a situation in which you have a disgruntled superstar? Did the Wolves come close to that? We talk about the best possible values in the NBA. Is there something else the Wolves should look to do to enhance their return? Would it make sense to move Anthony Bennett for Thad Young? Steve drops some philosophy knowledge, and Phil accidentally slanders Kevin Love in an attempt to defend what a great individual player he is. [Click to listen]
