With the departure of exceptionally-skinny dude Corey Brewer, the Timberwolves had a dire need at the “emaciated guy” position. With the free agent pickings looking slim, the Wolves turned to the D-League for answers, and there they found the near-death player they were looking for: Lorenzo Brown.
Brown has it all: he has wiry arms that has never even sniffed a weight room, he has a gaunt face that looks like it was molded out of candle wax drippings, and his legs are a constant threat to snap right out from underneath him. Throw in intangibles like sparse, prickly facial hair, inability to shoot, and a propensity for making funny faces, and it looks like the Wolves have filled Corey Brewer’s role perfectly.
This game was notable for having two anorexia victims, Lorenzo Brown of the Timberwolves and Tayshaun Prince of the Boston Celtics, sharing the court at the same time. Is there a hotline or something we can refer these guys to?
