Wolves Updates 5/9

Brock Lesnar on preparing for his mixed martial arts debut against a seven-foot opponent:
I tried to go down and talk to some of the guys from the Timberwolves, but none of them wanted to come and train. KG (Kevin Garnett) didn't want no part of it.

Coach Wittman on Randy Foye and Craig Smith being named to the league's All-Rookie teams:
"What's encouraging is that both of them were working hard today with the coaches, trying to improve themselves," Wolves coach Randy Wittman said. "I'm proud of both of them. Now it's, what are they going to do with this first season? Hopefully they'll use it as a springboard to bigger and better things."

Foye and Smith are the team's first rookies since Wally Szczerbiak (1999-2000) to be selected to the All-Rookie team.

The Painted Area on trading Garnett for Dirk Nowitzki.

A day in the life of Wolves' mascot Crunch.

From Charley Walters/Pioneer Press:
A number of Timberwolves season-ticket holders are withholding minimum renew payments until they find out what players are acquired in the draft.
