Going back to the discussion at the end of the last thread, what pisses me off more than anything is the "selling the team to a majority white fanbase" remark. Last time I checked the Twin Cities are a) one of the more tolerant metro areas in the country, b) have had plenty of teams where the ratio went the other way that fans fully supported and c) struggle to shake the perception among NBA players that Minnesota is a Siberian hell hole. Shouldn't be too surprising that the few signings they get to improve the team are Europeans....and Brandon Roy.
At the end of the day, the greatest thing to sell the fanbase on is winning. Been way too long for T-Wolves fans since that has happened.
For Wolves Fan this is the being of an era. Can't wait for all the injuries to heel. Still wish the Wild and NHL would end there lockout of fans. Minnesota without hockey......terrible.

good pick up for the wolves... although this really doesn't fit in with their strategy of signing white guys so the fans can relate to them
Say what !! Oh sarcasm.. Basketball will do until hockey get done messing up the fan base. Sorry Wild-- me and bro's bought 8 set of 4-- and it cost so much less then Wild tickets. Are you sure this lockout of the fans is worth it.
Just wanted to share this with the T-Wolves fans on hfboards... The B. Roy era is officially over in Minny. It was a huge gamble on even attempting to play again when you don't have knees, but it was cool to see a once great player on the Target Center court
That really sucks. Everyone knew it was going to happen, but everyone hoped that somehow he'd be OK. I'm glad the Wolves took a chance on him, and I really hope for his own health he admits that he can no longer play in the NBA. Really sucks to see such a likable, talented player go out like this.
That really sucks about Roy. He looked great those first games.
AJ Barker...well I don't know. If you read between the lines it sounds like he had an ego and Kill was trying to settle it down. On the other hand, if half the stuff he wrote is true, that's a pretty poor way to treat and adult who's paying to play football.
