Minnesota Timberwolves Tickets
The Minnesota Timberwolves joined the National Basketball Association (NBA) as an expansion team in 1989. As is the case with many new teams, the T-Wolves started off slow. In fact, in seven seasons, they won only 29 games. In 1995, Kevin McHale, Vice President of Basketball Operations, drafted the young phenom Kevin Garnett out of high school. Garnett had an immediate impact. With his leadership, Garnett led the T-Wolves to their first-ever playoff berth and winning season. After eight consecutive years of making the playoffs, the Timberwolves failed to make the NBA Finals. Within a few years after the trading of Garnett, they acquired Kevin Love. Although they improved, they consistently missed the playoffs. Their fortunes improved after acquiring Karl Anthony Towns along with the attainment of Jimmy Butler from the Chicago Bulls. After 13 years of missing the playoffs, they finally returned to the postseason in 2018. Since then, the T-Wolves have steadily improved their roster with young and hungry talent.
