Welcome to Wolvescast Digest, a semi-weekly roundup of NBA odds and ends related to your favorite hometown team. With so much fun NBA content on the web, it can be easy to miss things. We’re here to draw attention to the things that may have sifted through the cracks in your overtaxed attention spans. Feel free to leave a comment with anything that you feel deserves inclusion.

Do you like silly Wolves images? Follow us on Instagram! We’re posting them in our story when we find them. Lots of fun timberwolf ephemera that would normally make the digest — like a pumpkin with the KAT/Embiid fight painted on it from reddit user u/Acstine — will now live on our IG. Subscribe and slide into our DMs with Ricky photos.

With that being said ... here’s a gallery of KAT/Joel memes.

Never Rat on Your Friends

“We gotta do this again, when we’re all on the same team,” Russell jokes toward the end of the day. “Nah, don’t cut it,” he says to our rolling cameras. “Y’all got it on footage. When we’re all on the same team — I ain’t gonna tell you which team because I don’t know— we’re gonna do this again.”

Neil doesn’t want to trade for D-Loading for a host of basketball reasons (he’s bad at defense, not the most efficient scorer, bad long term fit with Towns, etc). But what if trading for him and assembling 2/3rds of the Towns/Booker/Russell “Goodfellas” trio makes us the most likely destination for this eventual super team?

Booker isn’t leaving Phoenix for several years, but if these guys are dead set on playing together in the future, what can the Wolves do to position Minneapolis as the best destination for their future union? Would a team built around the Goodfellas ever defend enough to compete for a title? Do we have the right to be so picky?
