I suppose the NBA schedule makers are fantasizing about how a team like the Wolves can play four games in five nights with the cities being Mexico City, Sao Paul, Tokyo, and Paris. Get off the plane about 15 minutes before the next night's tipoff. Is there no end to greed?

jrtaft - None of the Wolves are Mexican... what's your point? The article said "Spanish-speaking players", aka Rubio and Barea. Don't be so obtuse...

Timberwolves back-up post player Gorgui Dieng speaks the language of his native Senegal. Uh-oh.

I believe Gorgui speaks 5 languages and Spanish might be one of them. Obviously, one of them is his native language.

I saw all the complaints, but they look like they're enjoying themselves anyway.
