Minnesota Timberwolves Notes, Quotes 2009-12-10

Minnesota Timberwolves Notes, Quotes 2009-12-10--Forbes magazine says this about Minnesota's NBA team in its annual franchise valuations:

"The Timberwolves are hurting."

The magazine estimates the Wolves' worth at $268 million, ahead of only New Orleans, Memphis and Milwaukee. That's an 11 percent drop from last season and far away from the top-ranked Los Angeles Lakers' $607 million worth.

Forbes noted Wolves owner Glen Taylor's estimated fall in net worth from $3.8 billion to $2.2 billion in the last year and said Taylor, who bought the team for $89 million in 1995, "is believed to be looking to unload the franchise."

--New York City's Madison Square Garden is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year -- even though the present arena opened in 1968 -- and that six-overtime Big East Tournament game G Jonny Flynn played there last March is deemed the Garden's second-most memorable college basketball moment. Syracuse's Eric Devendorf's 30-footer at the buzzer in regulation time was waved off and Flynn went on to score 34 points with 11 assists in the second-longest game in NCAA history.

"I was pretty mad that it didn't count," Flynn said. "But if it had, we wouldn't still be talking about that game."

Flynn feigned annoyance that CCNY's 1950 NIT championship was selected as the Garden's top college-basketball moment.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It's still a great accomplishment to be part of something like that." -- Wolves rookie G Jonny Flynn, feigning annoyance that CCNY's 1950 NIT championship was picked as the top college basketball moment in Madison Square Garden history over his Syracuse team's six-overtime victory in last year's Big East Tournament.
