As the NBA hiatus rolls on, just know that Minnesota Timberwolves players are just like you and have taken to social media to pass the time.
We’re not even two weeks into the NBA’s absence and at this point, there’s no telling how long the arenas will remain empty.
Minnesota Timberwolves players have been fairly active across social media channels throughout the layoff, and it’s about time we take a spin through the roster and see what everyone has been up to.
We’ll begin with Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell, and for good reason. They’re the team’s best players, and, as everyone is well aware, they’re best friends. They’ve also posted quite a bit of content together, which makes my job a lot easier.
Here’s the duo playing some FIFA. (Scroll below the Giannis video because it’s attached to ESPN’s thread…or don’t, just watch his guitar skills first, I suppose.)
Good to see that these guys are isolating themselves together. Not a bad set-up for a bit of FIFA, either, is it?
Also, Towns would like you to give him some ideas of what he should be up to during his forced time off.
KAT’s buddy, D-Lo, has been busy promoting some sweet tees that the Wolves are apparently selling, with the proceeds going to a great cause.
Russell even retweeted an unboxing of one of the shirts from a fan.
We touched on this in a previous post, but Josh Okogie played the Phoenix Suns’ Ty Jerome in an NBA 2k game that was broadcast live on Twitch, taking the place of the originally-scheduled Wolves-Suns game that didn’t happen.
Unfortunately, J.O. was toasted, as Jerome made sure to let him know afterwards, after Okogie chose to blame the officials.
Elsewhere, Juan Hernangomez is apparently just nostalgic for the game itself, using his Twitter account to post videos of everything from his own highlights to Carmelo Anthony Nuggets highlights to crossover videos of Kevin Durant and Jamal Crawford.
Rookie Jarrett Culver has mostly been retweeting videos of his final season at Texas Tech, which feels like it was forever ago despite the fact that he was still in school and hadn’t even played in the National Championship game yet only 12 months ago.
Many of the other Wolves players have been less active, at least on the primary channels of Twitter and Instagram.
We can all bet on Towns and Russell keeping us in the loop on how they’re enjoying their hiatus, however. We’ll be sure to keep an eye on them for you here at Dunking With Wolves.
