The Timberwolves are a young franchise that in there just over 30 years have great stories to tell. It’s time to learn more about the Minnesota Timberwolves through five historical facts.
This team arrived with the NBA expansion that began to take shape in 1987 with other Heat, Magic, and Hornets.
Their debut in the Association came in 1989 when they faced the Seattle SuperSonics on November 3. The name was chosen before the franchise was approved.
It all started with a poll of fans, who chose two finalist names: Timberwolves and Polars. Through a vote held by Minnesota’s 824 mayors, the win for Timberwolves was resounding, as Minnesota boasts one of the largest populations of gray wolves in the entire US.
In their little more than 30 years of existence, the Timberwolves have no NBA championships, and the closest they have come was when in 2004 they lost the Western Conference Finals to the Lakers, this is a series that went to six games.
The Timberwolves played their debut season at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome and in 1990 moved to their current home, the Target Center, an arena that can seat 18,798 fans at Timberwolves home games.
In the rafters of the Target Center hangs only one retired number, Mike Sealy’s 2. Mike’s history with the Timberwolves began in 1998 when he came to the team from the Detroit Pistons.
Mike Sealy’s life ended tragically when on May 20, 2000, he was killed in a car accident after attending Kevin Garnett’s birthday party.
After this event, the Timberwolves decided to retire his number. The Flip pennant is also at the top of the arena in honor of coach Flip Saunders, who was an essential part of the franchise and passed away on October 25, 2015.
Other vital players who wore the Timberwolves uniform include Kevin Garnett, Latrell Sprewell, Sam Cassell, Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Derrick Rose, and Jimmy Butler. Also, the back-to-back player’s Rookies of the Year, Andrew Wiggins and Karl Anthony Towns.
The highest peak in the history of the Timberwolves was the 2003-04 season when the team experienced its best season by placing first in the Western Conference with a record of 58 wins and 24 losses.
Kevin Garnett’s MVP accompanied this significant moment, averaging 24.2 points, 13.9 rebounds, five assists, 1.5 steals, and 2.2 blocks per game.
To their misfortune, they faced a super Lakers with Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, Gary Payton, and Karl Malone in their roster. The Los Angelinos took the series in six games; however, they did not win the NBA title when they lost in the Finals against the Pistons.
On April 11, 2017, the official launch of the new logo took place. Its development took 12 months as part of creative collaboration.
It collaborates between designer Rodney Richardson of branding agency RARE Design, NBA executives, and basketball club owners.
They combined the iconic elements of previous emblems: the ball, Wolf’s head, and the team name. The new Minnesota Timberwolves club logo has been significantly changed, except for a few designers’ symbols.
As in previous years, the blue Wolf is in the center, depicted against the blue ball and green star.
The Wolf is depicted in profile with its jaws open. The animal’s smile symbolizes the courage and energy the team advances towards glory.
It is worth noting that the green eyes and the same color for the star were not chosen by chance. This indicates the green state of Minnesota and the color of the vast buds on the trees, which abound in this state.
