The University of Minnesota basketball team is currently ranked at #14 this year. They haven’t done this well in a long time. To see the team enter and get past the first round of the NCAA tournament would be excellent, but I would also like to see someone make it to the NBA.
Why do I care? I don’t collect a lot of basketball. I really like watching basketball, but I tend to only collect Minnesota related players. Specifically players that are from Minnesota or played for the University of Minnesota. Right now, I don’t have a lot to collect.
There are a few Minnesota natives currently in the league. Rashad Vaughn and Tyus Jones quickly come to mind and I do collect them, but I really want to focus on a Gopher alumni.
What about the Timberwolves? I do collect some Timberwolves, but NBA players come and go– quickly. I am cheap and I just cannot spend a lot of money on collecting a player if they are going to be traded in a year or two. It’s just not my style. Instead, I focus on what I like; University of Minnesota alumni and players born in Minnesota.
What about Kris Humphries? That dude is just weird. He was once married to Kim Kardashian and that is all you need to know about his character.
So here’s to a good season for Gophers Basketball team. Maybe I will have someone to chase come NBA draft day next year.
