Call him boss A Rod announces officially acquired Timberwolves from NBA

Alex Rodríguez has had a very busy 2021 in every way, since not only did he break up with Jennifer López, canceling his wedding and their relationship, but at the business level he has also had many changes, since his previous bid for the New York Mets failed to enter MLB. Now, after many months of negotiations and paperwork, A-Rod can already say that he owns a sports franchise, now in the NBA.

A few months after confirming the purchase and only lacking the approval of commissioner Adam Silver and the owners of the NBA, through his Twitter account, Alex Rodríguez has announced that together with businessman Marc Lore, they have acquired the Minnesota Timberwolves .

According to information from CBS Sports, Lore and A-Rod bought the team for around $ 1.5 billion, in addition to having acquired the WNBA team, the Minnesota Lynx along with the NBA franchise.

The Timberwolves were founded in 1989 and are among the least successful in the NBA since then, only going to the Playoffs once since 2004 in the 2017-18 season, never making it past the first round of the postseason in their history.

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and I am going into my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
