Look we love the Timberwolves. They are a cool team with a cool future but this might be the most brutal of the bunch of Mount Rushmore’s. It was extremely hard to find 4 people worthy but that’s ok. For a few reasons this is ok.For one The Timberwolves are a young franchise with plenty of time for more stars to come through, and 2 they seem to have a bright future brewing now. Expect one of their young studs to make it on the Mount Rushmore in no time.
KG played the first 12 seasons of his career with the Timberwolves, coming back before retirement for a final season-and-a-half. Postseason success largely eluded Garnett and the Timberwolves, but that initial 12-year stretch established him as one of the greatest and most unique big men in NBA history.
Garnett averaged 20.5 points, 11.4 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.7 blocks per game over that span. He won the 2003-04 MVP Award and made 10 All-Star games as a member of the Timberwolves.
Nicknamed “The Big Ticket” he was by far the greatest player in the franchises history.
Stephon Marbury was a more of experiment gone wrong.
However, it was exciting to watch the potential of Kevin Garnett and Stephon Marbury playing together in Minnesota before they went their separate ways (Marbury was traded).
Marbury wasn’t a disappointment by any means, but it seemed like on the basketball court the team didn’t mesh with Marbury at point guard, thus having to trade him.
Kevin Love made his biggest splash in the NBA history books while he was with the Cleveland Cavaliers. In his 6 seasons with T’Wolves K-Love averaged 19.2 points per game and 12.2 rebounds per game. He also made the All-Star game with The Timberwolves 3 times.
He never made the playoffs in Minnesota but Kevin Love was a great player in his time in Minneapolis.
Kevin Love eventually got traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers where he ended up helping The Cavaliers win their first ever NBA Championship.
Wow. The Timberwolves might have been the hardest to find four players worth of being on their Mount Rushmore.
So enter Tom Gugliotta. Gugliotta averaged 18.2 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists with the Timberwolves and made the All-Star team one time as a Minnesota Timberwolf.
This was a bit of a stretch but Tom beat out a few guys like: Sam Mitchell, Karl Anthony Towns, Jimmy Butler, Sam Cassell and more. As you can see a bit underwhelming.
