"Let's be honest, 70% of teams in NBA could fold tomorrow + nobody would notice a difference w/ possible exception of increase in streetcrime," Garofalo tweets.

SAINT PAUL, Minn., March 10 (UPI) -- Minnesota State Representative Pat Garofalo apparently isn’t a big Timbervwolves fan.

On Sunday, Rep. Garofalo felt the need to vent about the NBA, or, more specifically, the players in the league.


Not everyone agreed with Garofalo’s questionable statement.



The Minnesota Republican has ripped on the NBA in the past.




This is how Garofalo explained the tweet to Deadspin:

“I was talking about the NBA's high arrest rate and that their punishment for positive drugs tests are weaker than other leagues. No intent beyond that. The culture among many pro athletes that they are above the law is the problem, not people like me pointing that problem out.”

In addition to disliking the Association, Garofalo also apparently has a problem with Sbarro.
