I used the term singing in the loosest sense of the word here, because what the Minnesota Timberwolves were doing was not so much singing as it was off-key screeching not unlike you would hear feral cats making when they are in heat.  Still, they give it a pretty decent effort, and from the looks of it, the whole exercise was a great moment in team bonding.

I’ve watched this video, with the sound down of course, multiple times, and I’m still undecided as to who my favorite T-Wolves crooner might be.  Even though he doesn’t sing, Ricky Rubio’s adorableness is intoxicating, and he’s so devilishly handsome that he actually could have been in a Spanish ‘N Sync cover band.  Kevin Love is seven kinds of cool, coyly trying to pretend he doesn’t know the words to “Tearing Up My Heart” when I would be willing to bet he has the entire ‘N Sync catalog on his iPhone.

And then there’s Michael Beasley, who starts off slow, flashing the white man’s overbite and mumbling through his first few lines before attacking the song with the passion of Celine Dion on opening night in Vegas.  In the end he owns the song, and my heart as well.

Remove all dogs and young children with developing auditory canals from the room and crank this sh*t up…

Sure my ears might be bleeding just a little, but I still like this version much better than the original.
