the ushers police the good sections from people moving around, no matter how empty the place is
I’m a season ticket holder who has not gone to the last few games. Here’s a list of why:
the fans, at least in the upper sections, truly have no interest in the game. that’s why they scream as loud as possible for tshirts and yogurt but not the game. most of the fans at target center remind me of the people who attend mid-season baseball games: it’s just a social outing, not about the sport at all.
we’re losing every game
our media team is straight-up terrible. We got a new gigantic screen but we’re using the same shit videos and animations from 15 goddamn years ago. It’s embarrassing.
the food in the stadium is unbelievably bad
Okay I understand there need to be promotions and that is part of the business aspect of the NBA, especially with home attendance this low, but come on. The arena sounds dead all night, then an opposing player goes to the free throw line in the 4th quarter and it sounds like how a real arena should sound. It’s embarrassing as a fan. I hope that the Wolves in-stadium advertising team will figure out how poorly this reflects on the organization and change the promotion to something positive. Two dunks or two threes by a Timberwolves player in the 4th or something like that. Also, GO TO THE GAMES PEOPLE!! Go Wolves!
The best thing they could give me is a team that wins. When you’re consistently down by double digit leads kinda hard to cheer.
If we can start winning and drawing the actual basketball fans to the games, then people would come. However, I imagine most people in this sub would agree that watching our broadcast team in the comfort of our own home is just a better overall experience than paying $40 for shitty seats to see a shitty team in a shitty stadium.

Antetokounmpo, who will be a starter for team Steph at the All-Star game at Staples Center in L.A., entered the game averaging 28.5 points, 10.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists on the season. But the Wolves held strong against the 6’11 ‘Greek Freak.’ He finished the night with just 17 points on 6-14 from the floor and a Wolves defense highlighted by Jimmy Butler forced him into five turnovers. Antetokounmpo did grab 15 rebounds and dish out six assists, but it was about as quiet as a team can hope to keep him on any given night.
The game tipped off with fans clamoring to see more offensive possessions run through and for Karl-Anthony Towns. They got their wish right away: Towns took seven shots during his run in the first quarter. Two of those shots were put-backs off of offensive rebounds, two were three pointers (he made one), two were mid range jump shots and one was a layup. He finished the quarter 4-7 from the field, and the Wolves finished it with a six point lead.
As the Wolves offense halted, All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo led two Bucks runs that brought his team back to within shouting distance. After Wolves alumni Sean Kilpatrick hit a three pointer with 1:32 remaining in the third, the Bucks were within 12. But the Wolves then went on a 10-0 run into the fourth quarter that saw their lead grow to a comfortable 83-61 margin.

After a good first half in which he let the offense flow and didn’t force any shots, Jeff Taegue came out of the locker room a step slow. A thematic problem of this season, Teague held the ball late into the shot clock. He was unable to create a passing lane through which to hit Karl-Anthony Towns or Taj Gibson in the post, and he was seemingly unwilling to swing the ball around the perimeter. When asked after the game about the offensive rhythm slowing throughout, Towns agreed that “it was more about moving the ball.”
On the improved defense, coach Thibodeau said in his post-game press conference that “the biggest thing was getting our legs back under us a little bit. It was good to be back [home].” After tonight, the Wolves move to 13-0 in the Thibodeau era when holding an opponent under 90 points.

Butler finished the game with 28 points on 8-15 from the floor and 2-5 from three, and he added four rebounds, six assists and a steal to boot. It was his seventh consecutive 20 point game. Towns shared the load, putting up 24 points on an efficient 10-13 from the floor to go along with 11 rebounds and three assists – marking his league leading 46th double-double of the season. That’s a collective 52 points on 18-28 (64%) shooting for the Wolves’ All-Star duo.
MINNEAPOLIS — It was an exciting night to be in downtown Minneapolis. Floyd “Money” Mayweather, Bill Belichick, Antonio Brown, Gucci Mane, and halftime performer Lil Jon were among the stars that graced Target Center on Thursday night.
