I rarely take the time to reflect on why I like my favorite sports teams because it seems so obvious: I’m from Minnesota, so I like the Timberwolves. Simple as that, right?
Well, I thought about it a little before writing this slideshow and realized there is a more to it. Beyond the fact that I can see these guys on television just about any night they play—and occasionally catch them live—or that they are exactly as old as I am (est. 1989), the primary reason why I like them is that they are always entertaining.
No, they haven’t won much recently (although I do remember the Kevin Garnett days), but there’s usually something funky going on with them.
It started this year with Kevin Love breaking his hand doing knuckle push-ups, continued when he opened up to Yahoo! about his concerns for the Wolves future and finished with Ricky Rubio charmingly telling Alexey Shved to change his face and be happy.
Regardless of if it is 50-32 or 32-50, this club always finds a way to get your attention.
