The Associated Press reports that the Minnesota Timberwolves are attempting a new strategy of honesty to appeal to potential local fans. Given that the team is arguably the worst professional sports organization at the moment, this really isn't the best idea.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are nothing if not honest.
The team took out a full-page ad in Monday's Star Tribune sports section, featuring a long open letter to fans that acknowledges the negatives, points to the positives, and spells out the plan for improvement.
Included in the letter are these words: "So will we challenge for the NBA championship this year? Not likely."
I'm saving up all my money to buy a life raft for Kevin Love.
