Throwback Week | Tuesday: Wolves vs. Spurs
As we continue to celebrate 25 seasons, Timberwolves.com is putting together a compilation of photos and videos this week that highlight our past, present and future. On Tuesday night, the Wolves take on the San Antonio Spurs. San Antonio's main staple when the Wolves entered the league was Hall of Famer David Robinson, who as a rookie in Minnesota's inaugural 1989-90 season was not only an All-Star but the NBA's Rookie of the Year. Pictured above, Robinson and the Spurs attempt to slow down Wolves rookie Kevin Garnett during the 1995-96 season.
Look for more photos and videos throughout the week, including Thursday's special "Beyond the Arc" video featuring Hall of Famer and hoops legend Dominique Wilkins talking about what makes Wolves forward Kevin Love such a special player in today's NBA.
