Fans Rumors

Well then, regardless of MVP, it has to feel good to have folks learn your game on this higher-profile sort of stage these past few years. People are going to remember what you did in this league. Does that make you feel good? Devin Booker: That’s what wakes me up in the morning. That’s back to being inspired by the little kid up there. Like, my thing is — and Kob’ said it too — inspiring the youth (is everything). A kid grows up and is like, ‘Man, I want to be Devin. I want to dress like him. I want to play like him.’ I’ve never lost sight of that. That’s what keeps me going. Haters can do what they want and say what they want.

Rudy Gobert on booing Timberwolves fans: 'Just stay home'

For Gobert, though, fans shouldn’t be quick to dress down the Timberwolves even when the results aren’t to their liking, per Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic. “I just don’t appreciate people that come in and boo your team. When you’re a fan, you gotta support your team in the tough or the good moments. There’s no team in NBA history that only had good moments, so if you’re not going to support us in the tough moments, just stay home. I think if you’re going to embrace us in the tough moments, then come and then we’re going to love the support.”

Gilbert Arenas says he couldn’t believe the Wizards were asking him back, ready to mend fences after over a decade of separation. “I started asking the questions,” Arenas said. “Are you sure? Is Ted [Leonsis] okay with this? Is Tommy [Sheppard] okay with this?”
