After entering the league as an expansion team in the 1989-90 season, it took the Wolves eight years before they made the playoffs. It took them nine before they could finish above .500. But the T'Wolves have progressed.
Since then, we've seen Kevin Garnett blossom into one of the best players ever to put on a uniform. We've seen a Western Conference Finals appearance. And now, in the franchise's 25th year, it seems like we're starting to see the Wolves' front office shape some semblance of a team around Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin.
Though it hasn't been the best 25 years for the Timberwolves, that doesn't mean the franchise hasn't had its moments.
From Isaiah Rider to Kevin Garnett to Al Jefferson to Kevin Love, the Wolves have always found a way to be entertaining in one way or another. So to celebrate the Minnesota's 25th year of existence, here is a look at the 25 best moments in franchise history. May the next 25 years be even better.
