Freaking Media Day is Here! Not long now friends. Media day, training camp, and pre-season before you know it.
The first pre-season game is a week from today against CSKA Moscow at Target Center.
As for today, I believe that media day will be streamed on the Wolves site. It's scheduled to start at 11:30. Our man Tim will be there and will be filing a story later, after which he's headed to Mankato to be on hand for any training camp
Here is Ricky at media day last year I think:
In other news:
- Flip spoke to the media on Friday in advance of media day. You can watch the video here.
- Today will be the first media access to Rick Adelman since the end of last season.
- Chase Budinger will not be at media day as he is in Alabama to see Dr. James Andrews. Hopefully we will know more about the state of his injured knee later today or tomorrow.
- You should, by the way, follow @timfaklis especially this week.
- Go Lynx. Third straight WNBA Finals appearance was secured yesterday with their win in Phoenix. They will be clear favorites in the Finals against the Atlanta Dream which start on Sunday.
Today's musical birthday follows slowbreak's theme of musicians who died early. Frankie Lymon was born on this date in 1942. He died of a heroin overdose in 1968.
This is an open thread. I said open.
