Results from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources' 2016-1017 wolf population survey suggest Minnesota's wolf population has increased 25 percent since the 2015-2016 survey. After remaining stable during the past four years, the survey estimates that within Minnesota's wolf range there were approximately 500 wolf packs and 2,856 wolves. The survey's margin of error is about plus or minus 500 wolves. PineandLakes.com Illustration

The Timberwolves have gone from a young team with no bench waiting to mature and hit their stride to a balanced team of veterans, hopeful stars, a little depth and one top-20 athlete in his prime. I don't know if they have ever had that combination in their nearly 30 years - maybe in the Kevin Garnett/Stephon Marbury era, but I would argue neither were in their prime yet at that point.
