The Harlem Shake has taken the world by storm, however one NBA isn’t taking kindly to the Miami Heat‘s rendition. It appears that the Minnesota Timberwolves have grown tired of the Heat’s antics both on and off the court.
This video came hours after the Timberwolves were just embarrassed in their own building by the Heat. Miami was victorious in a 97-81 blowout that would even escalate into a fight between Wolves guard J.J Barea and Heat shooting guard Ray Allen.
Allen isn’t anyone’s punching bag and if 19 years in the NBA have taught him anything it’s not to take anything from a six-foot guard like Barea. The two would skirmish however it was obvious that Minnesota was simply frustrated with the Heat winning their 15th straight at the Target Center.
Oddly enough, the Wolves frustration spills into even their quirkiest of fans. The Minnesota reaction to the Heat’s Harlem Shake involved a cheap LeBron James jersey, an even cheaper baseball bat and the Wolves mascot “Crunch the Wolf.” The only issue I had with this video was the timing as it came after the Heat just wiped the floor with the Timberwolves.
All in all, it was an obvious shot at the big-three and it will for sure draw a reaction from James. It will be interesting to see what he has to say about “Crunch the Wolf” nailing someone in his jersey with a plastic bat.
