The Timberwolves were kind enough to invite a handful of season ticket holders (including myself and Tim Allen) to attend Media Day and interview some of the players from the fan perspective.
Now, some random notes, along with links to some of the videos I shot.
Mike Beasley interview- Are we interviewing Mike Beasley, or is he interviewing us? Hear how he's "MisunderStud".
Darko Milicic interview- Why he came back, and the potential psychological similarities he shares with Minnesotans.
I'll add links to more videos as I get them uploaded.
Random Fact: Michael Beasley and Twolves camp invite DeMarr Johnson are Godbrothers.
Michael Beasley says he's been playing a lot more golf since he got to MN. Be Easy, Mike Beasley. http://youtu.be/wWwsBlXqK2Y34
Luke Ridnour looks like your next door neighbor who's an insurance adjuster. Most "average joe" looking NBA player of last decade.
Darko and Pek are both listed as being from Serbia, but they hadn't met until yesterday. Seems weird.
Darko, Pekovic and Koufus look like 3 cousins at a family reunion. A VERY BIG family reunion.
Martell Webster is a well-spoken, composed gentleman.
Another lesson from Twolves Media Day- they are WAY ahead of most pro sports teams as far as openness and connecting with their "clients."
I connected with Darko on an emotional level. No, seriously. We had a moment.
My biggest regret of Twolves Media Day: Not getting to ask David Kahn if he wanted to punch Bill Simmons in the face.
