It’s here! The NBA season has arrived and for the Timberwolves, a 24th year in the Twin Cities.

Two game nights into the season and already some interesting story lines have developed. The highly touted L.A. Lakers are ofer after two games of befuddlement and blandness. Miami came out of the gate nicely against KG and crew (more on The Ticket’s snubbing of ol’ friend and Title Ring-mate Ray Allen in a bit) and how about the Mavs? Did you see their opening night fury against the LakeShow?! Impressive.
