I don't really have a lot to write about this weekend, but the geeky elves and I are working hard at awesome new features on the site (which is also hampering the writing). In the meantime, I wish everyone happy holidays. Check out the holiday wish list of all NBA bloggers over at Hickory High. Mine was pretty simple:
Patrick Minton – The NBA Geek – @NBAGeek - I feel like this one is super easy. Just give the team perfect health. It’ll be really fun to see how good this team can be when all its players are healthy at the same time. And that includes Kevin Love’s hand, he’s clearly still having tons of problems with it. So, Santa, just so we’re clear: no back spasms, no broken appendages, no sprains, no stomach flu, no stubbed toes…I don’t want to even see a scab from someone cutting themselves shaving, k?
Well, that did not last long.
Looking at his eye after the game, it looked like that map of the infection in the movie Outbreak when they’re showing how the red/affected areas (the disease) on the map spreads after 48 hours then 72 hours then a couple of weeks. Love’s eye was headed toward that “couple of weeks” map for sure.
Last night I had a dream that Kirilenko and Shved were in a car accident, Love's eye was a long-term thing, Rubio slipped in the shower and broke something, and the Team traded everybody else but Derrick Williams for a bag of potato chips. Or something. I'm obviously fuzzy on the details because I have never been good at writing down my dreams in the middle of the night but I do remember the salient detail that Williams was the only guy left on the roster who could play. Here's hoping that the Wolves' injury luck turns around before we reach that level of absurdity.
