The steroid loving former MLB player wants you to think he is the main owner of a NBA team.

T-Wolves’ McKinley Wright IV A-Rod As Owner Is ‘Big Blessing’ … ‘He’s One Of The G.O.A.T.’s’

It’s safe to say Alex Rodriguez is fitting in as part-owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves … ’cause rookie guard McKinley Wright IV tells TMZ Sports it’s a huge advantage!!!

We spoke with Wright out in NYC this week … and asked the 23-year-old how it is to have the Yankees legend on board.

“Big blessings,” Wright said. “One of the G.O.A.T.’s on the baseball field. It’s a blessing.”

Wright — who’s in his first season with the team after 4 years at Colorado — mentioned that he and Alex have spoken … and the 2-time MVP gave him some sound advice.

“Just continue to be yourself,” Wright says A-Rod told him, “And be who you are. Don’t change for nobody. Do what you gotta do to win games.”

Of course, A-Rod’s tenure as an NBA owner got off to a pricey start — back in November, Minnesota was slapped with a $250,000 fine after he hosted a team gathering at his Miami mansion during the offseason. – Source
