Minnesota Timberwolves Team Info
The Timberwolves are still considered one of the young pups of the National Basketball Association as far as the franchise goes. The team entered the NBA before the 1989-'90 season and didn't enjoy a great deal of success during their first five seasons. They then took their luck into the draft where they took a chance with their number five pick and grabbed the 6'11” skinny power forward Kevin Garnett. Guys like Antonio McDyess and Joe Smith had been picked before Garnett and most GMs thought the T'Wolves had taken him too early. Little did the GMs know that the kid Minnesota drafted would one day turn into “The Kid” that we see today. Garnett had an average rookie season and he didn't fare all that well against his fellow rookies when he only finished sixth in the Rookie of the Year Award voting. Each season he's improved his game and slowly become one of the elite players. He's in a very elite class of players that can dominate the game in the post with Tim Duncan and Shaquille O'Neal. Of those three players Garnett is by far the most versatile. Garnett can handle the ball play on the perimeter and knock down a three when needed and neither Duncan nor O'Neal can step outside of the three point line. Garnett also brings a type of ferocity to the defensive end that is unparalleled in the league. He routinely sends blocks into the stands and will yell out a primal scream after he sends the ball flying. Garnett is also an athletic freak of nature. He habitually will let a player shoot a ball and then instead of blocking it he will jump into the air and bring it down with one hand. That's easily one of the most embarrassing things that can be done to someone on the basketball court and Garnett is the only one who can do it on a regular basis.
The Timberwolves bench is very talented and very versatile. Backing up Cassell and Hassell are Troy Hudson and Fred Hoiberg. Behind Sprewell and Garnett are Wally Szczerbiak and Mark Madsen. Behind Olowokandi is Ervin Johnson who said he came back into the game just so he could help KG win a ring.
