Minnesota TimberTrolls: Top 7 images

Yesterday, we brought you the story of the TimberTrolls, the hottest thing to hit Minnesota Timberwolves' online fanbase since... well, they're probably the hottest thing to ever hit the Wolves' online fanbase.

And while they've only been at it for about a month, the Spaniards have already accounted for a list-worthy trove of photoshopped photos and animated GIFs. So without further ado, and in honor of the No. 7-wearing basketball sensation that made Spain give a shit about Minnesota's NBA team in the first place (actually, let's say it's in honor of No. 7-wearing Derrick Williams -- apparently Joe Mauer was on the brain when this was written), here's the top-seven Troll-inspired images thus far.




7. Ricky Potter

Rubio's silky-smooth game is nothing short of Wizardly, so Ricky Potter is a good look for him. Wes Johnson harkens back to one of Prince's band-mates from the '80s, and Darko... wait, why the hell does Darko make an appearance here anyway?

6. Wild Wild West

If you've watched a little bit of T-Wolves action during the past couple seasons, then you know that Wes Johnson unfortunately just isn't very good at basketball. Will Smith's Wild Wild West action-comedy was also pretty bad. Hey, if the shoe fits, wear it.

5. Tolliver Twist

Anthony Tolliver has an old-school game, so the Dickens reference works. Also, love the attention to deal with this one -- "A film by Rick Adelman," "Coming soon (in playoffs)." Long-suffering T-Wolves fans can only hope!

4. Pek kicks some royal ass

Pek's southeastern European heritage, threatening tats, and huge, imposing stature would've made for a great 300 character. Fittingly, he's shown here kicking the tar out of DeMarcus Cousins, whom he dominated on the way to a Wolves victory last Wednesday.

"the No. 7-wearing basketball sensation that made Spain give a shit about Minnesota's NBA team"...while I wish the draft choice of Derrick Williams inspired the entire country of Spain to follow the Timberwolves, I think the "basketball sensation" you were referencing actually wears 9.

the 6th one is Anthony Randolph, not Tolliver

You're right. My bad. I have season tickets, so I should've remembered that. Perhaps I had Joe Mauer on the brain...
