It’s not often that the Minnesota Timberwolves Dancers get much recognition, but this is one of those special occasions when they most certainly deserve it. Unfortunately, this is one of those stories that can be wonderful to read about, but its timing was such that there were plenty of newsworthy events knocking down the door for the Minnesota Timberwolves and the NBA in general.

It occurred a week before the NBA Trade Deadline, at a time in which the Timberwolves front office was actively engaged in negotiations to trade the short-timer D’Angelo Russell for two players and multiple draft picks. But there were also some newsworthy events happening at the Minnesota Timberwolves home basketball court, a.k.a. Target Center.

Taking care of Timberwolves fans

The Tweet and embedded video highlights a Timberwolves dancer who climbed all the way to the top seats of Target Center to reward a young Minnesota Timberwolves fan with a promotional giveaway. The seats are as far from the court as they come, but that did not stop this Minnesota Timberwolves Dancer from making certain that one fan had a night to remember:

And that is something worth writing about.

Based on the profile pictures on the Minnesota Timberwolves Dancers webpage, the hero in this story appears to be Danielle. And based on the response on social media, this is not a one-time event. It seems that the Timberwolves Dancers routinely visit the 200-section seats in an effort to ensure that all fans who attend a live game get a memorable experience. What about ticket prices? Surprisingly, there are still tickets priced as low as $10 per seat in the 200-section, making for an affordable night out for an entire family.

And with the Timberwolves Dancers ensuring that everyone has a great time no matter where you sit in Target Center, how can you say no? Ultimately, you come to Target Center to see the Minnesota Timberwolves play in live action. But with the kind of service with a smile from the Timberwolves Dancers like Danielle, you’ll be back thanks to the quality of service and the life-long memories.

I’m not sure how many Timberwolves fans will bother to read this article, but positive news still needs to share in sports headlines. While not a buzzer-beater score, there is a young fan who walked out of Target Center with a grin from ear to ear and with a treasured keepsake, thanks to a Minnesota Timberwolves Dancer who shared her smile and time.

That’s worth reading about, now more than ever.
