ESPN used its real plus-minus (RPM) model to project win-loss records for all 30 NBA teams. The Timberwolves are projected to win 50 games, good for the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference.
The Ocho, for fans of hilarious sports comedy movies, was a fictional channel from the 2004 film "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story." In the spirit of that made-up channel from 13 years ago, ESPN is turning ESPNU — usually devoted to college sports — into ESPN8: The Ocho for one day only next Tuesday. It will be filled with offbeat programming such as championships in darts, roller derby, arm wrestling and — of course — trampoline dodge ball.
