Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau has a plan to give the team a boost this season.

He and the front office are simply putting together a group of former Chicago Bulls who played for Thibodeau and hoping they’ll gel.

Now, the Timberwolves have a new nickname – which you saw in the tweet above – and even the team’s Twitter account has gotten in on the act. Meet the Timberbulls!

This is going to totally be a thing all season, especially if the Wolves struggle.
