Minnesota Timberwolves: Kevin Garnett (BEST)
Kevin Garnett is the greatest player in Minnesota history to an almost comical degree. He leads the Timberwolves all time in games, minutes, points, steals, assists, rebounds, blocks, and free throws. He’s more than doubled his closest competitor, Kevin Love, in rebounds and almost tripled the next closest scorer, Andrew Wiggins.
Garnett made 10 All Star teams with the Timberwolves. All other Wolves players have combined for eight All Star appearances. Minnesota had never even made the playoffs without Kevin Garnett until last year. No NBA franchise is more encompassed in one single player.
Minnesota Timberwolves: Johnny Flynn (WORST)
Can there really be anyone else in this spot? Johnny Flynn was the crown jewel of then General Manager David Kahn’s raging incompetence. Kahn and the Timberwolves selected Flynn with the 6th-overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.
On top of the fact that Flynn was out of the NBA in less than five seasons, this pick really makes Minnesota fans want to take a long walk off a short bridge when they remember the team passed on Stephen Curry.
