HoopsHype Crunch rumors

March 5, 2013 Updates

The Heat and Timberwolves played in a fairly physical game Monday night, which saw Miami continue on its record-setting winning streak. Apparently, Crunch, Minnesota’s mascot, had some extra aggression to let out after the disappointing defeat. In a video released by the Timberwolves' YouTube account on Tuesday, Crunch beats the Heat’s Harlem Shake; with a bat. It is difficult to tell if Crunch is more upset about the Heat’s success on the court or about their video going viral, but his distaste for the defending champions is clear. Albeit interesting, it is kind of awesome to see a struggling team take aim at the champs in such a manner, and the spoof is sure to put a smile on Wolves fans’ faces in the midst of another marginal season in Minnesota.
