In today's Top 5: Tearing down the Nets, J.J. is called a flop, Percy is iffy, Joe goes for the Gophers and a vote for voting.

1) The who-are-these-guys Timberwolves get their second no-Love-no-Rubio win, this time by storming back against those bums from Brooklyn, the Nets.

2) In that game, the Wolves' J.J. Barea got the NBA's first warning against flopping. Oh, the drama...

3)  It looks like Percy Harvin will be pretty iffy against Detroit. He has a bad ankle sprain and admits he has a "lot of work to do" to get back on the field.

4) The Gophers crush Southwest Baptist in Minnesota's final exhibition tune-up, with Joe Coleman looking mid-season solid with 15 points.

5) Uh, get out there and vote. Here's a link(thanks to Canis Hoopus)to figure out where to go. Afterwards, don't tell your under-18 kids what you did. Keep 'em guessing...
