Hi, I read your Q and A about all the kids in Minnesota and I thought that was cool. I’m actually one of the kids you signed and gave your shoe too. I am really interested in Timberwolves b-ball. I like your style of play and dance. Im on the White Bear A-team and I try to play like you every day. I’m looking forward to your games in the future. I’ll be in that autograph hallway and cheering in the stands.
Hey there! haha that was a funny story! Glad to hear that the team is doing great. I’m really happy that rashad is part of the team. I cant wait to see him at the open scrimmage on monday! Keep up the great work =) go t`wolves!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mark, we are sooooo happy to keep you here in Minnesota. I have been glued to my computer the past couple of days to see what your decision was going to be. We are officially keeping our season tickets since you are coming back. Thanks for staying here.
Mark, I’m not sure you’ll remember me just by my name but I’m the young lady you met at the airport. I’m writing to thank you very much for being so kind and patient with me and my mother. It meant a lot, as a fan, to shake your hand and get a picture with you. Trust me when I say it was the experience of a lifetime ;-). Well, thank you again and I wish you the best. Take care and good luck! -Your Fan
I had the chance to work with Mark at his camp this past week. I have met a lot of Pro athletes over the years and NEVER have I met any who have been so good with the public. Mark is a class act and i hope to get the chance to work with him again in the future.

Mark, I just wanted to let you know that I appreciated your weekly column in the St. Cloud Times. I thought it was refreshing and honest. Good luck with the rest of your career whether it is with the Timberwolves, which I hope it is, or with another club. You always gave us 100 %.

Dear Mark Madsen…My name is Johnny,I am 6 years old and live in California. I love basketball, mostly the Lakers, but I cheer for the T-Wolves too (because my nanny/babysitter grew up in Minnesota and she cheers for them like crazy) I wanted to thank you for talking at your college last Saturday I could not go,but she went for me which was so cool because she’s like a young grown up and doesn’t even have kids. She just went so she could tell me what you said. She plays ball with me and it’s fun because she’s like almost 6 feet tall No kidding!! She always tells me to be a good sport on and off the court and she told me you said pretty much the same thing plus that you told cool stories like missing free throws and having to be nicer to Shaq. Awesome!!! I hope your wrist feels better and that you have a good season next year except maybe against the Lakers –just kidding –sort of. Your fan
WE R EXCITED TO KNOW THAT U WILL BE PLAYING AGAIN IN THE NEXT SEASON. U R DOING GREAT I THINK. U ALWAYS WILL DO . WE SHALL BE LOOKING FORWARD FOR THE NEXT SEASON. IT WILL BE FUN . HOPE I COULD GET OT SEE U PLAY AGAIN. DOING GREAT MARK.
Hello, I was writing to you because I dont have a question really but I wanted to express a few things. Im 17 years old and in 11th grade, one thing I notice when you are playing is that you no matter how much time you get to play during a game you always give your all, obviously as I read some mail from others fans of you and others can see that to. When I play basketball, I keep im mind the way you always play and thats helps me.
Also, I have been ready your column and I like what you have been writing, I find it entertaning and very interesting, keep up the good work!
Get Well, And thanks for your time…
I been a Laker fan for a long time and your one of my favorite Laker.I just have 1 question why? Why did you leave the purple and gold? Was it boredom? Change of scenery? Or lack of respect by the laker organization. Good luck,but you know the championship goes thru L.A.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.
