Ridiculous Item of the Day: Minnesota Timberwolves Offering Season Tickets for $43
Imagine going to NBA games for $1 a game. No way, right? Way. Apparently, the Kevin Garnett-less Minnesota Timberwolves are so desperate from their horrific season--in which they drew the second worst attendance in franchise history (14,402 fans per game)--that they are doing a "Pay the Pick" deal. Here's how it works. You put down a $43 non-refundable deposit. If the Wolves get the first pick in the draft, you're all set. Pay no more. You pay $43 for the entire season. If the team gets the second pick, you pay $2 per game, third pick ($3), fourth pick ($4) and fifth pick ($5). So essentially, the worst you can do is 43 games for $215.
