NBA All Star Weekend
The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Wednesday they’ll have four players representing the team in the Rising Stars Challenge as part of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend in February.
The NBA announced Thursday night that Timberwolves Kevin Love will compete in the three-point shootout that’s part of All-Star Weekend. Love won the three-point contest back in 2012 and was recently voted by fans to be a starter in this year’s All-Star Game.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams will participate in the slam dunk contest Saturday night as part of the NBA All-Star weekend. He’s got a plan, and he’s keeping it close to the vest.
The Minnesota Timberwolves’ improvement on the court is coming with a nice little side benefit. The franchise is well-represented at this weekend’s All-Star festivities in Orlando, Fla.
