You’ve got to give the Minnesota Timberwolves marketing team credit. In the face of a nearly unwatchable product, they’re still plugging away trying to create something resembling excitement.
Today, the team released this hype video for Saturday’s showdown with former Wolves star Kevin Love, who now plays on a team that’s won 8 in a row and is going to the playoffs.
You’ll note the joke if you’re a Wolves fan (insert obvious joke here).
It doesn’t mention Kevin Love.
By the way, the Timberwolves will make big money on the game. The cheapest ticket price at Target Center is about $7 for Timberwolves games. Those will run $50 on Saturday.
