Wolves Updates 5/4

Glen Taylor one of eight billionaire NBA owners and more

 

From Paul Walsh/Star Tribune:

Minnesota Timberwolf Kevin Love is known for his shooting abilities on the basketball court, but a leading gossip website is giving him some grief for his lack of accuracy in a drinking game.

TMZ.com reports that Love, who became old enough to drink legally last September, engaged in a recent game of beer pong at the home of Mike Love, his uncle and one of the Beach Boys.

 

From Tom Haberstroh/ESPN:

As it turns out, once we throw away the losing teams that play only at breakneck speeds to keep their star players satisfied with inflated, pace-induced statistics (Golden State Warriors, Indiana Pacers and Minnesota Timberwolves, we're looking at you), the Spurs are not so adaptive to high-speed basketball.
