One day I mysteriously decided to visit all NBA team’s sites with hopes of learning something new. From the Hawks down to the Wizards one team’s website shocked me the most. It wasn’t the Timberwolves’ site, but it was the Bobcats’ site. The website of the worst team in NBA history.
So, what did I see that shocked me? Well, underneath the site’s tabs, in bold letters (including team colors of course) it states, “BUY THIS SEASON, GET THE NEXT ONE FREE!”
Just think about it how the Wolves would have been had Rubio not arrived to Minnesota. We could certainly be like the Bobcats who are in dire need of people to buy tickets. And think about it, Charlotte does not have other professional teams within their city, so more people in their city can focus on one pro-sports team. Although there is the Carolina Panthers in the NFL, but the city itself doesn’t have any other professional sports team. Minnesota on the other hand have 3 other! The Twins in baseball, the Wild in hockey, and the Vikings in football. And each of those team’s still receive a good amount of attendance per game and not resorting to a buy one season get the other for free. It’s just sad to see that the Bobcats are in desperate need for fans to attend a single game. I mean, they’re selling one season and giving out another season for free. Think about it. It’s just embarrassing. That’s all I could say.
I know Love would still have been an MVP candidate but no one in Minnesota would be much attracted to the Wolves had Rubio not played for us. Love may be one of the best players in the NBA today, but as we all know, he can’t do it alone as the Wolves fell to the bottom of the NBA for two consecutive seasons. Rubio really has had a marvelous impact for the Timberwolves. Especially with the Wolves’ WNBA counterpart, Lynx, winning the WNBA championship recently, the Wolves had to step up. With Rubio, the Wolves were basically saved from doing what the Bobcats are now doing. Thank God!
