"WE" can do it.

Uni We Love: In a very promising season opener on Wednesday night, the Minnesota Timberwolves welcomed number 1 overall pick Karl Anthony Towns to town with a 112-111 victory over the Lakers in Los Angeles. Towns posted a double double in his first game as a pro, and 5th year guard Ricky Rubio played the game of his life, finishing with 28 points and 14 assists. Before the game, the T-Wolves wore shooters honoring recently passed long time Minnesota Coach Flip Saunders. 
 A touching tribute to the man responsible for much of what modest success the Wolves have had
in Minnesota, the shooters feature "WE" in staggered letters over the center of the chest, and "Flip" in smaller letters over the heart. As John Krawcynski reports for ABC News, "The 'We over Me' concept is something Wolves GM Milt Newton and Saunders discussed starting last year and planned to instill as the mantra heading into the season. It was all about driving home to a young and impressionable core the importance of valuing team achievement over individual statistics."

Team of the Week: The Crusaders from Norfolk, Virginia, seen here in our navy Dynasty jerseys, are our Team of the Week. 
Coach Kelly Trower, who
sent us this sweet pic, said, "The players love the new uniforms and we've gotten a lot of compliments from the parents and from other teams as well.  The first tournament we wore them in we placed second, so we took that as a good sign." That's what we like to hear!
