Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present the first revision of our top 50 Minnesota Timberwolves of all-time.
As for all of our top 50 players in basketball we look at the following:
- Advanced Statistics.
- Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NBA.
- Playoff accomplishments.
- Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories, which has altered the rankings considerably.
This list is updated up until the end of the 2018-19 Season.
The complete list can be found here, but as always we announce our top five in this article. They are:
As you may have deduced, the biggest change from our previous ranking from three years ago is the vault of Karl-Anthony Towns from #16 to #2.
The biggest change based on recent play is Altuve’s rise to number 5.
With the changes in our algorithm and with recent play, we have added new additions in Taj Gibson #18, Andrew Wiggins #21, Jeff Teague #31, Tyus Jones #35, Nemanja Bjelica #40, Zach Levine #46 and Jimmy Butler #48.
As always we thank you for your support.
