The Minnesota Timberwolves are an American basketball club based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They play in the NBA League (Northwest Division).
Minnesota, a member of the Western Conference, the Northwest Division, has not changed its name or hall since its founding, and they play in the "Target" center, which receives 19,356 spectators.
The club was founded in 1989. In the first seven years, Minnesota served more as a training partner, because they used to have a score of 15-67.
Things have started to get better since 1995, when the young Kevin Garnett joined the team, who had a lot of help from Stephen Marbury and Tom Gugliota, so in 1996 the first place in the playoffs was recorded, and a series of eight related appearances in the post began. season.
True, the first seven times they were eliminated in the first round, but that's why the 2003/04 season. was special because they reached the West finals, where the experienced Lakers were better 4-2. After that failure, everything went badly for the team. A new series without a playoff started, and in 2007, Kevin Garnett left the team in a historic exchange with Boston, who sent a record five players to Minneapolis, two drafts from the draft and money in exchange for Garnett.
Nothing looked good in Minnesota until Kevin Love showed up. The guy, who is known as the double-double machine, brought new life to the Timberwolves, who, although they did not break the series without the playoffs, are finally starting to act as a team with potential. However, Leo was changed to the Cavaliers in the summer of 2014, and Minnesota got the first peaks from the last two NBA drafts, so it is starting a new beginning with new young players.
