Will seem like forever till the season starts, figured maybe we could take turns with timberwolves trivia questions or something...

I'll start out..

 

Can you name the Timberwolves staff or players who were part of any Olympic basketball Team!? And what year were they part of it!

Cool question! I'll take a stab at it.

Laettner! 92.
KG. 2000?
I think those have to be the only Wol....ahhhh wait a minute:
K. Love 2012.

That's gotta be it...right?

And now Thibs, Assistant Coach, 2016.

Shoot I forgot about other countries!
Rubio - 2008 (I remember swooning over him then, before he had ties to Minny)
Shved - 2012

Is that it??

So did they have to be a Wolf when playing? Or just list of anyone who ever played for the T-Wolves and who ever played in the Olympics? That list is a lot longer...

Prince Luc Mbah a Moute
Shane Heal
Mikael Gelebale
Turiaf
Marko Jaric
Nathan Jawai
Darko!!!😄
Sasha Pavlobrick
Andrei Kirilenko
Damjan Rudez!
Nemanja Bjelica
Stojko Vrankovic
Tayshaun Prince
Igor Rakocevek
Luc Longley!

Of these, afaik Longley, Jawai, Jaric, Kirilenko, maybe Heal (?) and soon Bjelica either did or will play around the same time as they were TWolves.

I weirdly was thinking about this question in bed last night, and AK47 came to mind. It just blows my mind that we had Kirilenko as our starting SF for a season. It's like I totally forget that, and it wasn't even that long ago!

He was pretty awesome for that 1 season.

I am betting a few years from now most of us will similarly forget that we actually had a recent season in which Tay Prince was primarily our starting SF.

It was a pretty opened ended question, cause I doubted I knew all the guys who were involved in any Olympic teams! I knew the ones Bonk did and then a few extra euro players. Plus I was curious to see how many forgot about Laettner! :P

But the fact that Wolf actually remembered Shane Heal was on the team and still knew enough to know he was an Olympian, wins the interwebs for the day!

Knowing Mikael Gelebale & Nathan Jawai, was also pretty impressive!

And remember Starbury played for the USA BRONZE team in 2004 Athens!

Man. You want to talk about major watershed sh*t with this team? What if the Wolves made the playoffs that year? What if Love never rushed knuckle pushups? What if Love never did knuckle pushups/get in a fight/whatever it was?

Kahn probably hangs on for another year? Maybe?
