Minnesota Timberwolves History

The worst historical franchise in the current NBA is the Minnesota Timberwolves. They are the one franchise with an all-time win/loss record under .400, and they have been in the league for over three decades.

Minnesota was a feared team in the Kevin Garnett era, as they made the NBA Playoffs every year from 1997 through 2004. Head coach Flip Saunders and Garnett proved to be a strong tandem that made it to the 2004 Western Conference Finals, but that has proved to be the peak for the franchise. They were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs for seven straight seasons before that lone breakthrough.

Since 2004, the Minnesota Timberwolves have only been to the postseason twice. They have been dreadful most years and haven’t won more than 47 games in a season in that stretch. However, they doubled their wins from 2020-21 to 2021-22 and may finally be ready to compete again.
