Minnesota Timberwolves Tickets

Minnesota Timerbwolves Tickets for Sale

The Minnesota Timberwolves are coming into the 2011-2012 NBA season with a phenomenal lineup of young talent. Kevin Love and Michael Beasley take up the forward spots and Wesley Johnson and Ricky Rubio will be in the backcourt. Though he has never quite dropped the bust label, Darko Milicic has been a defensive force at center. Milicic averaged 2.03 blocks a game last season and his size is necessary in the lane since Love is not exactly a high riser at power forward.

Love is still a worthy starter. He became a consistent 20-15 threat last season with range from the three point line. Beasley came into his own after struggling to find himself in Miami. Beasley put up 19 points a game with enough range to stand out at the three point line as well. Actually, Johnson and Rubio are also deep threats. The Timberwolves have managed to put together a potential offensive force in the starting lineup. Even Milicic has shown the ability to put up nearly 10 points a game.

Off the bench, the Timberwolves will spend the season grooming first round draft pick Derrick Williams to possibly replace Beasley. Williams has been compared to Beasley. He is a 6 foot 8 forward with nearly 250 pounds. He actually should lose some weight if Williams is to guard NBA small forwards. Luckily, he has the range and the athleticism to play on the perimeter or in the lane.

Minnesota Timberwolves History

The franchise first began a Timberwolves schedule back in 1989. Minnesota endured quite a few seasons of struggle, winning no more than 29 games in the first seven seasons. Flip Saunders took over as head coach in the middle of the 1995-96 NBA season. Kevin Garnett joined the club that season. The first of the new wave of basketball players to skip high school, Garnett developed leaps and bounds under Saunders, becoming a 20-10 guy who could block shots from the weak side. The Minnesota Timberwolves advanced to the playoffs eight straight seasons, peaking with a Western Conference Finals appearance against the Lakers in 2004.

That would be the last season Minnesota would play in the postseason. For the next three seasons, the franchise failed to reach the postseason and Garnett's frustration grew. Eventually, KG was traded to the Boston Celtics and the basketball team began to rebuild. They added Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio and now Minnesota Timberwovles tickets are on sale to the Target Center for this new generation of stars. TheSeats has those MN Timberwolves basketball tickets to enjoy the new season as this club becomes a playoff contender once again.
