T-Hud and Ice Cube!

Thanks to City Pages for the link to this incredible pic and story of Ice Cube with T-Hud and Griffin.

It was smiles all around as actor/director/rapper Ice Cube joined Wolves players Troy Hudson and Eddie Griffin for a grand entrance to the kitchen of the Cookie Cart, a non-profit bakery dedicated to serving at-risk youth in north Minneapolis.

“This is the most fun I’ve had all day,” said Cube, before joking that he may be headed for a supervisor position with the bakery after establishing his cookie-making prowess. “This is what it’s all about,” he added, saying he very much enjoyed the opportunity to interact with kids he would never normally get to see.

The Wolves are donating $10,000 to a local charity chosen by the fans as part of its April Fan Appreciation events. You can vote on the charity at the Timberwolves site or at the home games.

No summer league games at the Target Center this year. Casey said the team is going to send an entry to join the Las Vegas summer league. That's going to make it a long post season for Wolves fans.
