Ricky Rubio and the Timberwolves sing 'N Sync's "Tearin' Up My Heart"

Just as Minnesota Wild prospects shouldn't be Foo Fighters critics, we warn you to approach this clip of the Minnesota Timberwolves doing 'N Sync's Tearin' Up My Heart" with a bit of caution.

First of all, you'll probably end up singing along with the tender voices of Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass. Second, the melody isn't exactly easy to remove from the tip of your tongue once it's back where it was in 1996. At least they didn't go with "Bye Bye Bye."

Finally, most of these guys don't sing very well. Ouch, Kevin Love, ouch! Anthony Tolliver and Michael Beasley show some passion for the material, at least. Nikola Pekovic is wisely holding out for some Serbian material. Thanks to LOL/OMG for pointing this out. And we do agree in questioning why a bunch of guys who are getting paid millions (or at least hundreds of thousands) are spending their time on this. Amusing, nonetheless.
