It's well past time to get on the Minnesota Timberwolves bandwagon. The team's young and talented, all upside, and with nary an unlikable character in sight.
If things come along as expected, a squad of Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, Ricky Rubio/Kris Dunn/Tyus Jones will be terrifying, the kind of grouping that might, on a good night, be able to reckon with juiced-up super-teams like the Warriors and the Cavaliers.
But don't take our word for it. Listen to 50 Cent, the guy who once encouraged us to "go shawty," and that it was "your birthday," even if technically it was not even your birthday.
In photos posted to his Instagram account yesterday, Mr. Cent appears numerous times wearing a WOLVES hat. Here's a pre-flight photo where Curtis is headed back to New York. It looks like he brought something to drink on the plane, which is smart, because you can get really dehydrated on a long flight.
In this post, said to have been taken just after waking up, Fiddy's WOLVES hat is atop a head that's having some crazy deep thoughts.
By the time they touched down, 50 was ready to face some hard truths head-on. That's more than could be said for the WOLVES hat.
Admittedly, we don't know for certain that 50's an authentic fan of the local basketball team. WOLVES is kind of just a badass word to have on a hat.
But let's take this at face value, and roll with the notion that Fiddy's a fan. About damn time the T-Wolves had some celebrity fans.
Oh and while he's at it, can someone send 50 Cent a Lynx hat?
