Timberwolves hilariously roast bandwagon Lakers fans
The Minnesota Timberwolves had their way with the Los Angeles Lakers this weekend, both on the court and on social media.
Before hosting the purple-and-gold for Sunday’s game at the Target Center, the Wolves tweeted an image of a few Lakers fans sitting in the arena. In their caption, they hilariously wrote that they were looking forward to welcoming these fans back again in March when the Golden State Warriors came to town.
hats off to all the Laker fans who came to support their team this afternoon.

To rub salt in the wound, the Wolves then ran the Lakers off the floor, winning the contest 108-86. They did however make a stunning personnel move just hours after the victory.
It’s true that Lakers fans are often criticized for jumping on the bandwagon of the Warriors, who have obviously been a lot more successful in recent years. Even this beloved Laker has weighed in on the phenomenon.
