My Canis Comrades, your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to name all the people in this photo and tell me when and where it was taken. No looking up uniform numbers - you are on the honor system, my friends.

To be honest, I don't have all the answers myself. Here are some hints to get you started:

  • Fred Smoot is not aboard
  • This is not the 1953 team at Lake Calhoun
  1. One guy had been clotheslined a few years earlier by a future Wolves GM
  2. One guy was a U of W Badger
  3. One guy is the letter "A" away from sharing a name with a former T'wolves center
  4. One guy played "Man Stuck in Car" on Emergency!
  5. One guy was the Timberwolves' color analyst (and I don't mean analyzing skin pigmentation)
  6. One guy went to Canisius College (no relation to this website... maybe there should be)
  7. One guy's name is an anagram of "I Ran Bad Ranch"; he played 91 minutes, scoring 65 points for MN
  8. One guy's the only person to win a championship in the NBA, WNBA, and NBA Development League
  9. One guy began and ended his NBA career a virgin (paging Poor Dick!)
  10. One guy played on Panathinaikos long before Pek
  11. One guy is now a pastor in Florida
  12. One guy is the only #1 overall draft pick to be chosen by a reigning NBA championship team.
  13. Bonus: which team member is missing from this picture? His name is perfect for a marginal basketball player.

Have at it!
