Every couple of years I randomly go to the official Minnesota Timberwolves site and today happen to be one of those random days. Actually I wanted to see what Kaaaaahn’s army currently looked like and was shocked to see a splash page already promoting Brandon Roy & Andrei Kirilenko as the faces, or atleast selling points, of the franchise – can Love get some love? I’m personally a huge fan of both players but it has to worry you when your two most marketable players are returning to the NBA from retirement and who remembers why AK47 disappeared for so long…was it the Baron Davis dunk?
Anyways, I’m excited to see the return of the two players playing alongside the franchise player Kevin Love, Rubio and some newcomers like Chase Budinger.
