The Minnesota Timberwolves are apparently some sort of semiprofessional basketballing concern located in South Canada that someone has generously allowed to play on the same level as the Miami Heat. Their 20-37 record puts them in dead-last place in the Western Conference, but that apparently hasn't stopped them from taking aim at the defending champs with an anti-Harlem Shake video.
Remember last week when the Miami Heat finally jumped on the Harlem Shake trend with an official locker-room rendition? Sure, it was a bit late, but the team is kind of busy winning basketball games and whatnot.
Apparently the Timberwolves have more time to respond to such Internet matters, so they produced this:
Oh, sick burn, you guys!
It's not like someone made this exact same joke three weeks ago. Oh, wait, they did? Sorry.
This is what happens when you let Michael Beasley get away! You don't even have that stoner friend who lets you know what viral videos are original or not.
