The Minnesota Timberwolves’ recent regular-season finale against the New Orleans Pelicans was nothing short of incident-packed. Late in the first half, Rudy Gobert, the center for the Pelicans, punched Kyle Anderson from the Timberwolves, during a timeout, sparking a large brawl between the two teams.
Both Gobert and Anderson have since apologized for their actions, but the reactions from fans and media remain strong. In response, Anderson, a Timberwolves forward, has stated that the reactions to the fight have been “kind of lame.” In his opinion, people are acting as if this is the first time a fight has broken out between two sportsmen. He added that both he and Gobert have put the matter to bed, speaking it over after the game and moving on from the incident. They are teammates at the end of the day, Anderson said.
Although Gobert was suspended for one game following the incident, the Timberwolves still suffered further setbacks, with forward Jaden McDaniels fracturing his hand. Looking ahead, all eyes will be on the Minnesota-based team moving forward, as they seek to make a name for themselves in the league.
