Lucky Timberwolves Fans Get 2011-12 Season Tickets For $84

The Minnesota Timberwolves acquired the second overall pick in the NBA Draft in Tuesday night's draft lottery. This is good news for their fans for two reasons. The first reason, obviously, is that this is the highest the Timberwolves have selected in the NBA Draft in franchise history (their previous high was having the third overall pick in 1992, which they used to select Christian Laettner).

But, more importantly, it means that some Timberwolves' fans got their 2011-12 season tickets on the cheap. . .the really, really cheap.

Shortly before the draft, the Timberwolves launched what they called the "Pay the Pick" promotion, which they had run several times in the past. What it says is that people that committed to purchase season tickets before the lottery would pay a per-game price equivalent to what pick the Timberwolves got via the NBA Draft lottery. The tickets were upper-level seats.

So, since the Timberwolves got the second overall pick in this year's draft, those individuals that made the commitment prior to the lottery will get those season tickets for $2 per game. Taking the Wolves' 41 home games into account, some lucky folks just got 2011-12 Minnesota Timberwolves season tickets for the low, low price of $84.

Regardless of how bad the Timberwolves are, that's a pretty good deal.
