• 3M Coaches Awards

    The Timberwolves, Lynx and 3M are driven to help honor High School and youth basketball coaches that provide players not only with top level skill and team development but also a positive character building experience that helps young athletes both on and off the court.

    Vice President of Fan Experience and Basketball Academy Jeff Munneke presents a Timberwolves team signed basketball and four lower level seats to each coach to recognize their efforts with pre-game on court recognition.

Tip of the Week

Dribble Explosion


Having a great shot fake will help your game and your team. In his next game, watch Kevin Love use the shot fake to get the defender off balance. Ball goes up, butt goes down.
