T'WOLVES STILL SEARCHING FOR $2 MILLION COMMUNITY DONATION
Published November 11, 1994
In Minneapolis, Patrick Reusse writes, with thousands of empty seats at the Timberwolves' second home game and Commissioner David Stern in attendance, owner-to-be Glen Taylor "probably was in need of high-level reassurance to continue forward in his role as Minnesota's basketball savior." Taylor's purchase of the team is not official, still awaiting money from the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission ($56M) and the Minneapolis business community ($2M) to outgoing owners Marv Wolfenson and Harvey Ratner for the Target Center. Reusse: "There has seemed to be some difficulty putting the arm on the downtown crowd for that $2 million," adding that Stern may have been at the game to remind business leaders of their pledge. Stern: "Don't talk to me about it not getting done. Talk to the business community. Nobody told me it's not going to get done" (Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 11/10).
