Many professional sports franchises have a way of recognizing the great accomplishments of people who have been involved with the organization over the years. For the Minnesota Vikings, for instance, it is the Ring of Honor, a list of names that circle the Metrodome honoring the many fantastic football players and coaches that have been part of the organization.
Alas, such a concept wouldn’t work for our beloved Minnesota Timberwolves. Having no signature achievements to point to in their 20 years of existence, it makes more sense to honor the unique non-achievements in the team’s history.
As such, All Shook Down is proud to introduce the Minnesota Timberwolves Circle of Infamy, where those who have truly made a mark over the last two decades can receive their just rewards.
The first class of inductees will enter the Circle in June 2009.
Inductee Christian Laettner
A second class of inductees will enter the Circle before the start of the 2009-2010 NBA regular season.
