Continued: Reusse: Longtime Wolves fans set standards for return

The Timberwolves introduced “Club 41” several years ago — to reward season-ticket holders who fill their seats every night — and Seltz is perfect. So are Pettit and Bjerkness, with their tickets in the low corner.

How is this team going to take you back to the playoffs, Lew?

“A change in general manager [Kahn] would help,” Seltz said. “We’ve gone from giving away our first-round draft choices previously, to gathering first-rounders and not getting nearly enough out of them.”

Seltz was asked the Love question: Has this lost season changed his opinion on the power forward?

“I think he’s a great player,” Lew said. “He said some things out of frustration. When it comes down to it, I think he will want to stay.”

He added this: “We also have to keep Pek [Nikola Pekovic]. It’s the first time we’ve had a true center. Ever.”

Terry Guy has been a season-ticket holder since 1986, when the expansion franchise was awarded and he sent in a deposit.

Playoffs? “Everyone has to come back next [season] — Pekovic, [Chase] Budinger, [Andrei] Kirilenko … and Adelman,” Guy said. “And Ricky [Rubio] has to learn how to shoot.”

Has Guy renewed his tickets?

“They called with the sales pitch and I said, ‘The less you talk to me, the more likely I’ll renew,’ ” he said. “They stopped calling and I renewed.”


Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500.
