While I was born and raised in New York, I became a basketball fan in 1989, and gravitated to the expansion Minnesota Timberwolves, who I have rooted for ever since. Favorite player of all time is Tony Campbell (some of you younger folks probably don't remember him), the Wolves' leading scorer in 1989, 1990, and 1991. He played a key role on the Lakers in the late 80s, and starred for Ohio State. After the Wolves, he played for the Knicks, Mavs, and Cavaliers before retiring. Pure scorer, with a great mid-range game (think DeMar Derozen).
Pretty excited about the Wolves' potential moving forward. Not surprised at the slow start this year, however. Wiggins is now getting doubled, and has to figure that out. But the trio of Wiggins, Towns, and Lavine could potentially have the Wolves in title contention in the next few years. We'll see if Glen Taylor opens the wallet and enables Coach Thibs to keep all three. He needs to.
