Coming off their emotional win over Golden State, the Wolves will host a slightly more formidable opponent this evening when they get a visit from Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
Our friends over at Canis Hoopus have an interesting perspective on tonight's game, taking the opportunity to channel their inner Hollywood superstars and put together their own Timberwolves awards show. My personal favorite?
Best Director - David Kahn
Anyone who has ever worked on a film set knows that it is important to have a skilled director involved with the project. The director not only helps select the cast, he or she also sets the tone for the entire production. Some directors, like James Cameron and Steven Spielberg, are well known for their quality work. Others, like M. Night Shyamalan and Vincent Gallo are the opposite of that.
The Timberwolves have been directed this season by David Kahn, a skilled director who has been involved with previous successes like the Indiana Pacers and the NBA Developmental League. He has created a wonderful and cohesive atmosphere among all of the cast and crew. The finished product should go down as historic in Minnesota basketball film history.
Mitch Kupcheck just took over an already-established franchise. Anyone can do that.
Good stuff right there.
Tonight's game tips off at 7:00 PM Central time, and you can watch the action on Fox Sports North, listen to it on KFAN-AM 1130, or jump into the Game Thread at Canis Hoopus.
