Timberwolves’ Martin Fined $15K For Crude Gesture

The NBA has fined Minnesota Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin $15,000 for what the league called an “obscene gesture” during the fourth quarter against the Chicago Bulls. The league announced the fine Monday. The gesture came after Martin hit a 3-pointer with just over 90 seconds to play in the game Saturday night.

Wolves’ Kevin Martin Says He Won’t Cut Corners

In the final game of last season, and the final game of Rick Adelman’s coaching career, Kevin Martin went down swinging. While most of the Minnesota Timberwolves slogged through one last game in a massively disappointing season, Martin went after the Utah Jazz. He scored a season-high 36 points, attacked the rim to get to the free throw line for 10 shots and even came up with a couple of steals before fouling out in a rare show of aggression on the defensive end from him.

Rubio Focused On New-Look Wolves, Not Contract

During his first three seasons with the Timberwolves, Rubio usually deferred to Love when leadership was needed. Love was the All-Star. Love was the headliner. Love was here first.

Now Love is gone, traded to Cleveland this summer in a blockbuster that brought Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young to Minnesota. Seemingly overnight, the Wolves have morphed from a deliberate, plodding group to a dynamic young team brimming with athleticism.

How I’d Bet $100 On The Preakness Stakes

From a betting perspective California Chrome is the obvious choice in trying to build a winning ticket. He will offer no value in the win pool at odds of 3-5 or lower. That is why exacta, trifecta, and superfecta wagers (the exotic bets) are the best place to invest in this year’s Preakness.

Preview: California Chrome Headlines Preakness Stakes

The Kentucky Derby is among the world’s toughest races to win but California Chrome made it look easy. After his convincing win at Churchill, California Chrome will be a worthy and overwhelming favorite in the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday. He is one of only three colts exiting the Derby expected to run in the Preakness. The so-called “new shooters” — those that didn’t make the cut for the Kentucky Derby but will enter the Preakness — includes a mixed-bag of 3-year-old colts and one filly who will take on the “boys.”

Jazz Beat Wolves In What Could Be Adelman’s Last Game

Rick Adelman trudged off the basketball court for maybe the final time in his professional life and he couldn’t hide the disappointment.
