Marke Remme's Road Blog

Mark Remme discusses what might appear on the surface to be the more mundane details of an NBA team on the road. It was a pretty unique perspective coming from Mark Remme.

As we arrive and the players get off the bus, they’re greeted with a couple fans waiting with basketballs and seeking autographs. It’s pretty common in every city—reminds me of growing up and doing the same thing following the Twins around to different cities in the summer. Pek was the first to stop and sign the fans’ basketball, followed by others including J.J. Barea and Andrei Kirilenko. AK even waited in line for the Sharpie while one of his teammates finished up with his own autograph.

When the team left the hotel they were greeted by a group of fans seeking autographs and photographs--Pek stopped to sign on his way into the bus and Ricky stopped to take a photo with a fan before he entered. When we returned, we had a different group of fans waiting--most were small children with their parents wearing Justin Bieber T-shirts. It didn't make sense initially, until we found out later Bieber was in San Antonio on Saturday night performing at the AT&T Center. Word on the street was he stayed at our hotel, too. The Bieber fans had to settle for seeing a professional basketball team entering the hotel on Saturday afternoon.

Forgive me for not putting this in the fanshot section. I thought this would be of interest to a lot of Wolves fans. If a tree falls in the fanshot section...
