A 16-year-old fan reached out to all 30 NBA teams, asking which should be his new favorite since his hometown team — the Seattle Supersonics — moved to Oklahoma City in 2008.
Only one team responded: the Wolves. Not only did President Chris Wright send a letter — featuring a “top 10″ list of why the Wolves should be the fan’s favorite team — but the Wolves also sent a signed basketball.
Wolves VP of Communications Brad Ruiter assures us the letter and the story — at least on the Wolves end — are 100 percent legitimate and added that it’s the type of thing Wright often does.
“We do our best to respond to every fan inquiry we receive. I think all professional teams in general receive more of these types of letters than the public may realize, so immediate replies can be challenging, but it is our goal to treat our fans with the highest level of respect and respond to them,” Ruiter said. “We fully understand that without our fans we cease to exist.”
