Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

TFD: Wolves players, coaches do their best to stay out of Garofalo tweet story

Posted by: Michael Rand under Wolves news Updated: March 10, 2014 - 4:20 PM

 

State Rep. Pat Garofalo went on the apology tour on Monday, a day after his tweet heard 'round the world caused a stir, to say the least. In case you missed it, he tweeted:

 

"Let's be honest, 70% of teams in NBA could fold tomorrow + nobody would notice a difference w/ possible exception of increase in streetcrime."

In spite of that warning regarding the nature of NBA players (sarcasm here), we ventured boldly over to Wolves practice Monday to see what players and coaches thought about the tweet. For the most part, they smartly tried to stay out of the fray.

"I'm not talking about that," head coach Rick Adelman said. "It's got nothing to do with us. ... I've never even heard of the guy or know who he is."

"I really don't care. I didn't see it, but they told me about it when I got here," Corey Brewer said. "It's his opinion, man. People out there have opinions. He said what he wanted to say. Who cares?"

But we assume you didn't agree with him, right?

"I don't agree. Of course, why would I agree? It's stupidity, but it's his opinion," Brewer said.

Said Shabazz Muhammad: "I don't pay attention to that," he said, before talking about how much he likes his teammates (and deftly avoiding the question).

All players appeared to leave the practice court of their own free will.
