The NBA is Using Lena Dunham's ‘Girls’ to Fill Seats With Women

In what could possibly be the strangest collaboration we’ve discovered in quite some time… the Minnesota Timberwolves have teamed up with HBO’s ‘Girls’ in hopes of filling seats with female fans.

Anyone that’s a fan of Lena Dunham’s hit show would understand how obscure this new partnership is. Not only is there no mention of basketball, or sports at all for that matter on the show, ‘Girls’ generally appeals to a hipster demographic, one that feels uncomfortable traveling outside Brooklyn and spends their few spare dollars on live music and $3 PBR’s.

Maybe the NBA knows something that we don’t? Or perhaps the upcoming third season of ‘Girls’, premiering on January 12th, will feature a basketball or Minnesota-themed episode?

Either way, sports fan or not, the deal that the Timberwolves has put together is pretty impressive for anyone looking for a fun night out. For only $18, you get a ticket to a game, a beer, wine, or soda, and a DVD copy of Season one of ‘Girls’.

Considering you couldn’t procure any one of those things on their own for $18, it seems ‘Girls’ and the Wolves have developed a plan that ensure everyone comes out a winner.
