When his name was called with the 13th pick LaVine, in Brooklyn for the draft, appeared to utter and epithet suggesting he wasn’t happy with the Wolves’ decision.
Can you really blame him?

Nope. Flip would though. What a dysfunctional organization. And two players that don't want to even be on the team. That's the key to building a winning franchise. Did they not know about this? Or just not care? I think Flip is just a bit full of himself. And an owner that has his head firmly planted up his ####. Why do we get cursed with these guys? :(

It wouldn’t be the Wolves without some draft-night absurdity, though. LaVine’s reaction after hearing his name caused social media to hyperventilate through expert lip readers.

LaVine appeared to mouth a four-letter word (“f--- me,” he seemed to say) either in disgust or relief. I suspect the latter, but since it’s the Wolves, the natural assumption was that LaVine felt a sudden rush of dread.

Don’t worry, Zach. Wolves fans everywhere have said that same thing for years

Hopefully LeVine can develop into a great sixth man, but yet again, I find myself utterly confused at the team's draft strategy. What a terrible organization. Not giving Love that maximum deal a few years ago was probably the dumbest thing this team has done in it's entire existence. Ok, not really, but you know what I mean.
