T-Wolves Hope To Send Pekovic To All-Star Game

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Getting a player into the All-Star Game, at least as a starter, is a fairly straightforward proposition — you get enough votes and you’re in. So teams are able to campaign for their guys and hope that a democratic process will deem their player a winner. In many ways, it’s a popularity contest, plain and simple.

A hallmark of the show was that despite everyone’s differences, it was a mostly likeable group of people.

Now the T-Wolves fan site TimberTrolls has put together a parody of the “Cheers” theme using one of the NBA’s most likeable teams, the Minnesota Timberwolves…
