The Timberwolves are a professional basketball team based out of Minnesota. They are part of the Western Conference Northwest Division, and they play their games at Target Center.

Minnesota Timberwolves Brief History

The team was founded in 1989, and just like with every single expansion team; they struggled for victories in their early seasons.

But all that changed after the franchise managed to acquire Kevin Garnett, a player that went on to become the symbol of the team.

After getting Garnett, the team enjoyed a lot of postseason success, making it to the playoffs from 1997 to 2004.

That last year, in 2004, the team managed to make it to the Western Conference Finals, and Garnett obtained the NBA Most Valuable Player honors.

After losing Garnett to the Celtics, the franchise went on to a rebuilding process, but the team was never the same without the 6’11 power forward superstar.

Garnett then returned to the team in 2015, and finished his career there, retiring in the 2016 offseason.

Minnesota Timberwolves Rivalries

The Wolves’ have struggled to win games since day one, and that’s why it’s difficult to find rivals this team has stuck it with.

With that said, the two teams that can be considered Minnesota’s top rivals are the Bucks and the Cavaliers.

Milwaukee Bucks

They are a Wisconsin team, and every single Minnesota sport has a considerable rivalry with Wisconsin.

This is known as the border battle, and indeed, crowds are bigger, and stakes are higher every time these two states play each other.

Cleveland Cavaliers

A player trade is the biggest reason for the rivalry between these two franchises.

First, the Cavs picked Andrew Wiggins as the first overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, and later on that same year, he was traded to the Wolves on a deal that sent Kevin Love to Cleveland.
