It was a really rugged year for KG and the Wolves, ending his NBA-record streak at six when he failed to reach 5.0 assists per game to go along with at least 20 points and 10 rebounds. Nonetheless, he is a uniquely skilled player in dire need of better teammates and a chance to win.

Coach Casey expects T-Hud, Mad Dog, and Jaric to be ready for the season opener next Wednesday.

Stephen Litel/SportsPage Magazine looks at some of the team's "magic numbers."

Ndudi Ebi was waived by the Mavericks.

Sportsnet previews the Northwest Division.

Rip Hamilton upon hearing that some in's GM survey cast votes for the Wolves and Magic to win the Finals:
"Minnesota and Orlando?" Hamilton said. "Wow."

Coach Casey on Foye's performance in last night's game against Chicago:
"Some of the mistakes we have to live with because he's a rookie," Casey said. "They're not big mistakes... that he does now as a point guard. The little mistakes he's made are correctable."

"Right now I would rate myself as being average," said Foye, who made 8 of 8 free throws. "But I'm learning every day. If you watched practice, you would see I'm progressing."
