On November 8, 1989, the Minnesota Timberwolves played their first home game against Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. The Wolves played well but dropped the game 96-84. Hey, the Wolves were still several years away from seeing talent on the floor that might one day be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
As the Timberwolves embark on their next 20 years it is difficult not to get a little nostalgic in remembering the times that we loved, laughed and cried.
While it is clear that the Timberwolves are again in the rebuilding phase it is a good time to take a look back at the overachievers, the underachievers, and a host of other players that brought smiles, looks of disbelief and tears to our eyes.
