It’s been a rough week for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Star Jimmy Butler requested a trade, Andrew Wiggins got into a feud online with Stephen Jackson, and people are questioning the direction of the organization. The organization has taken shot after shot, and it’s not over quite yet. Chicago Bulls young star Lauri Markkanen is the latest person to pile on the Timberwolves.
Markkanen, who was originally drafted by Minnesota and traded in the package for Butler posted this hilarious throwback Thursday of him wearing T-Wolves gear.

Considering the turmoil going on in Minnesota, and the Bulls (somewhat shockingly) being on a good path, Markkanen’s troll game is perfect. He’s got to be happy he ended up in Chicago and not in the mess with the T-Wolves – a statement which would have been absurd just a year ago.
If Minnesota could undo the trade to bring in Butler knowing what they know now, you have to think they would. Markkanen is allowed to enjoy it.
