FLIP SAUNDERS: T’WOLVES ARE NOT TANKING
Minnesota Timberwolves President for basketball operations and headcoach Flip Saunders takes offence to what a reporter for NBA TV Matt Harpring told about his team; he told Timberwolves were in tanking mode:
“That’s totally irresponsible, we’re not tanking games,” Saunders said. “If that’s so, then [Utah] got beat by a team who was tanking. We’re playing to win. Our guys are out there: We won two games ago at New York, we lost in the fourth quarter against Charlotte last night. We’re not tanking games. It is irresponsible for them to go on TV saying that. If you work at ESPN, you get fired for saying stuff like that.”
Harpring hopped on Twitter in an attempt to brighten and clarify:
I apologize to wolves fans if you thought I was insinuating the wolves are tanking. I was addressing tanking in general and how bad it is.

BRAZILIAN-BORN PLAYER TO HAVE “FUCK” ON VEST
Via FOX News:
Guilherme Carbagiale Fuck, a Brazilian-born 6 foot, 6 inch forward who plays for Medicine Hat College in Alberta, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that his name is of German origins and means “fox,” and pronounced, “foo-key.”
F—, who wears No. 14, was unable to use the last name for years.
But in the March Canadian tournament, where his team finished in seventh place, he was allowed to use his last name.
“It’s my last name,” he told the CBC. “I’m proud of it.”
But F— said he hopes to continue using the name and he wants to have kids and “spread the F— last name.”
