Want a reason to celebrate amidst one of the worst runs in Timberwolves franchise history?!?!? I’ve got free stuff to give away! The contest is for a copy of the new book Stumbling on Wins, by Dave Berri and Martin Schmidt, authors of The Wages of Wins. Like my fellow bloggers in the TrueHoop Network I not only received my own advanced copy but 5 to giveaway to Howlin’ T-Wolf readers. There are at least 5 of you left reading about the Wolves right? Well if not I’m sure those who missed out elsewhere in the Network will mosey on over here to try and win one.
To make it a little more fun we’ll have one question per day this week and the first person to answer correctly in the comments will win.
Since the Timberwolves inaugural season in 1988 until 2004 (the cut off being for players with at least 5 years of experience) the Wolves have had on their roster at one time or another 3 of the worst 6 players, in terms of wins produced, that were drafted with either the #1 or #2 pick in the draft. Who are those 3 players?
Also, if you don’t win here this week, don’t worry. On Berri’s personal blog (The Wages of Wins Journal), he’s got links to all of the contests which include all of the TrueHoop Network blogs. They will be running their own contests/giveaways so be sure to go check them out as well.
Also if you still don’t win he is offering a free 2,000 word article to anyone who purchases the book this week (4/12-4/18). Simply forward a copy of your dated receipt to StumblingonWins@Gmail.com. A PDF version of the article will be forwarded to your inbox. You can purchase the book at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Borders, and FT PRess.
