Well, it’s officially official. Alex Rodriguez and Marc Lore are keeping the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Twin Cities. How can we know this for sure? Well, because ARod replied to a fan account on Instagram and told us so. Can it get any more concrete than an Instagram reply? No, no it cannot.

Alex almost had the state of Minnesota eating out of the palm of his hand. He could’ve gotten a new arena and just about anything he wanted to keep the franchise in-state. But I’m glad we don’t have to worry about any of that stress anymore. Alex Rodriguez and Marc Lore might as well be “one of us” already… right?
