This will be my last mention of the Minnesota Timberwolves for a while, since their last game of the season (finally!) was last night, and they ended up with a dreadful record of 17 wins and 65 losses, officially the worst record of all 30 NBA teams this year.
So what do they get for being the worst? They get more ping-pong balls in the "lottery" to draft the best college players, but 14 teams altogether have ping-pong balls bouncing around and the Wolves have never had good luck with the ping-pong balls (or basketballs, either) bouncing their way, so that isn't much consolation (The worst team has a 25% chance of getting the #1 draft pick).
One more thing: Even though they only won 17 games this year, that is two more than they won last year!
But, regardless, loyal fans that we are, we renewed our season tickets for next year. Hey man, the tickets are so cheap!.... and maybe someday they'll make the playoffs again.
