Minnesota Timberwolves Boycotted “Inside The NBA” Over Heavy Criticism Of KAT and Gobert


In an unprecedented move, Anthony Edwards and the Minnesota Timberwolves have taken a stand against criticism by choosing not to participate in “Inside The NBA” interviews. According to The Athletic, this decision comes as a show of solidarity with teammates Karl-Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert, who have faced derisive comments from Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, who was part of the “Inside the NBA” panel.

The Timberwolves’ unity was on full display when they collectively decided that no player would appear on TNT’s “Inside The NBA” postgame show after their victory in Game 4 against the Dallas Mavericks. This act of defiance is not just about rejecting a media appearance; it’s a statement of team cohesion and support for one another in the face of external criticism.

Draymond Green, known for his outspoken nature, has been a vocal critic of both Towns and Gobert. His comments have ranged from questioning Towns’ shooting regimen to outright insults directed at Gobert, which have not gone unnoticed by the Timberwolves community. In one instance, Green responded to “Draymond Sucks” chants from Timberwolves fans with a retort aimed at Gobert, further fueling the tension.

The Timberwolves’ response is a testament to their strong chemistry and the protective nature of the team environment. By standing together, they send a clear message that personal attacks on their players will not be tolerated and that they value the well-being and respect of their teammates above all else.

While the Timberwolves may have faced elimination in the playoffs, their actions off the court have shown that they are a team in the truest sense of the word. Their solidarity in the face of criticism demonstrates a maturity and a bond that could very well be the foundation of a future title contender.
