At 15-15, the Minnesota Timberwolves currently find themselves on the outside looking in, as far as the NBA playoffs go. They boast the 9th-best record in the Western Conference, which would make them the best team not in the playoffs, if indeed the postseason began today. However, team officials are confident that Minnesota will eventually crack the playoff picture by offering money back to their fans if they don't, according to the USA Today.
The Timberwolves have launched a new marketing campaign with which they promise to give a 10% discount toward next year's season tickets if the club misses out on the playoffs in 2013. The deal is valid for anyone who renews their season ticket or purchases a new one for 2013-14.
Minnesota chief marketing officer Ted Johnson said the team decided to go forward with the idea despite injuries to Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Brandon Roy and Chase Budinger. The move is in an effort to show fans that the Wolves are serious about winning after enduring several years of rebuilding.
