Ranking the 15 Greatest Timberwolves: #5-1

3 of 6

4. Wally Sczcerbiak

Wally Szczerbiak was a fan favorite in Minnesota. Whenever Wally would hoist up a three-pointer the crowd rose to their feet, because they knew there was a good chance that shot was going in.

In seven season with Minnesota, Wally averaged 15.5 points per game and 4.4 rebounds per game. His best statistical season was in 2001-02 when he averaged 18.7 points a contest to go along with 4.8 rebounds per game. During that 2001-02 campaign Sczcerbiak was named to the All-Star team, which of course was the only selection of his career.

Once Latrell Sprewell came to Minnesota in 2003, Wally saw his minutes drop and he fell out of the starting five. However, Wally thrived in the sixth man role and wasn’t known for complaining about playing less. He knew how to find his niche and was okay with playing less minutes if it meant the team was winning.

After nearly seven memorable seasons with the Timberwolves, Wally was traded to Boston along with Dwayne Jones and Michael Olowokandi. That trade would signify the ending of an era in Minnesota, as Kevin Garnett was traded shortly after Sczcerbiak was dealt.
