In extremely sad news, Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders recently passed away due to cancer at the age of 60. As evidenced by the large outpouring of sympathy and support following his passing, it’s clear that Flip will be missed by not only the Timberwolves community, but the NBA and basketball community as a whole.
As such, the team will be paying tribute to Flip with a commemorative patch that they’ll be wearing for the entire season.
It’s definitely one of the more detailed tribute patches that you’ll see, but it’s still classy and puts the focus on Flip and the franchise that he tirelessly worked hard for. Patches like these don’t have to be super stylish, but this one is classy enough and should do the job of paying tribute to one of the most influential figures in the Timberwolves’ organization.
