Get Buckets BrigadeAs he did in Boston and perhaps in part to alleviate the backlash surrounding his comments on the Trail Blazers, Ricky Davis is trying to assemble the "Get Buckets Bridgade," his own fan section in the Target Center.

Below is some info from the Timberwolves site.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Ricky Davis is looking for the most passionate Timberwolves and Ricky Davis fans in Minnesota. Davis will award 5 pairs of Timberwolves season tickets for the remainder of the 2006-07 NBA season, with games beginning on Dec. 1, to the fans that exhibit the most Timberwolves "True Blue" pride. The tickets, personally purchased by Davis, will be part of the "Get Buckets Brigade," the new Ricky Davis fan section at Target Center, which also debuts on Dec. 1.
"I'm looking for the most passionate Timberwolves fans out there," said Davis. "Wolves fans are some of the best in the NBA, and I want to personally reward some of them with season tickets. I'm looking for the wildest, craziest and loudest Timberwolves fans to head up the 'Get Buckets Brigade.' I'm challenging Wolves fans to put on their face paint, wear their Timberwolves gear and pull out all the stops in showing me why they should win the tickets."
