There have been a multitude of beautifully-written, heartfelt notes and tributes to Flip Saunders over the past 2 days. Clearly, Flip’s kind and welcoming personality not only got him victories on the basketball floor, it gave him an audience of admirers in the dozens of media rooms he entered through his career. It gave him admirers among the fans of the teams he coached.
We at A Wolf Among Wolves, partnered with Truehoop friends Hardwood Paroxysm, several friends within the NBA & Timberwolves media, as well as the Timberwolves and Lakers organizations want to pay homage to Flip.
But this is how we can make it great: We invite all of you that have a Twitter account to join us. We want to have a moment of silence, on Twitter, at the start of Wednesday’s opener in Los Angeles
- The game is set to tip off this Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 9:30 p.m. CT.
- The moment of Twitter silence will start at the opening tip.
- Those who participate will step away from Twitter until the Wolves make their first basket. After the first bucket, the moment of silence will be over.
- It’s that simple.
We hope you decide to participate with all of us. If you are into this idea, please share it with whoever you think would like to do this with us.
More than anything, big or small, so many of us want to do something to pay tribute to Flip. We hope this can become something to honor someone who earned a number of admirers in his life, just by being himself.
