Comment of the Day: Minnesota nice?

lavine2.jpg
LaVine acknowledges he "might have uttered something completely wrong," but says he's "completely ecstatic" to be drafted by Minnesota.
Our commenters were not very gentle with Zach LaVine, the Timberwolves' top draft pick who appears to have said "fuck me" in response to the news he'd be relocating from UCLA to Minnesota.

But ZaVine insists he didn't mean it like that, and reader DonnaB thinks provincial Minnesotans are being way too hard on the 19-year-old.

Here's her comment:

Donna is on to something -- maybe we should wait until he pulls a K-Love and forces his way out of town before unleashing the heavy verbal artillery against young Zach.

Marvin Hall I've hated the timberwolves since they passed on Steph Curry twice. Fuck the Twolves! Worst front office in the history of the NBA.

Who cares what he said. He averaged 9 points a game and didn't start. Our second round pick was better then our first. This franchise is a joke and it starts at the top.

Did you read his lips as he was being drafted and he heard it was Minnesota? Pretty sure he said oh f@##. And that's nice from him? He's lucky to be drafted but we all know that's not enough for coddled athlete's!

DonnaB is absolutely right. I have lived in MN my whole life and it is absurd, how obnoxious home town fans can be. I love my twolves as much as the next die hard NBA fan, but give the kid a chance before knocking him off of his pedestal.

Yeah Fuck him. Fuck him good. Just got drafted to play in the NBA and will make millions to play the game he loves. Fuck him straight to hell. Fucking spoiled little Bitch, hope he rides the bench.

Get real people, the Timberwolves suck. This kid's comment isn't against Minnesota, it's against one of our famously awful sports franchises. I forgot that in the midwest everyone gets along perfectly, loves everything and is allowed ZERO opinion.

Man, this "He's saying 'Fuck me...' because he doesn't want to play here!" and not a kid being blown away by being a lottery pick in the NBA at 19 story angle was more of a reach than the time Flip Saunders drafted Zach Lavine 13th overall.
