16 Year Old Sent Each NBA Franchise A Letter Asking Why He Should Be A Fan; 1 Responds


Would you make an NBA team show you why you should be a fan? A Seattle area teen recently sent out 30 letters, one to each NBA franchise, asking why he should be a fan of their team- Seattle has been without since the Sonics headed to Oklahoma City and became the Thunder.

He didn’t just fire up his laptop and change the heading on the letters. He took the time to handwrite each one, including a drawing of the team logo.  So, how many teams do you think responded?

Just one, the Minnesota Timberwolves. They sent a letter with 10 reasons why he should be a Timberwolves fan and, an autographed ball. The highlight of their pitch centered around Andrew Wiggins, Zach Levine and KG returning home.

Here is what 16-year-old Connor posted on Reddit:

The Timberwolves were the only ones to respond to my letters!

It’s an old ball probably from around 2010-2013 since it has Luke Ridnour on it, but I don’t mind.

Unfortunately the ball doesn’t have KG or Wiggins. Ridnour grew up in the town next to mine in Washington and I remember how hyped the community was when he was drafted by the Sonics.

They were actually the team I was rooting for to send me a response because I love Wiggins, my 2k player is on the Timberwolves, and wolves are my favorite animals (hence the username). Also, I’m aware of the grammatical error I made at the bottom.

I’m probably not switching teams though because a response may be an attempt to compensate for this reddit post. Needless to say, I’m a Timberwolves fan now!”

A little effort can go a long way!
