A 16-year-old former Seattle SuperSonics fan from Bellingham, Washington, has found a new team to support after his letter-writing campaign to all 30 NBA teams yielded just one returned letter—from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Timberwolves sent back a letter featuring 10 reasons to support the team and an autographed ball.

We've seen a young NFL fan send letters asking teams who he should root for with similar results. The amount of detail the young hoops fan put into the letters is incredibly impressive, with handwritten notes and a drawing of each team's logo. He also shared photos of his letters to the Portland Trail Blazers and the Milwaukee Bucks:

As he says in the comments section on the Reddit post, he is a Timberwolves fan now.
