Timberwolves Hosting “Midnight Madness” Dunk Contest

On September 29th the Minnesota Timberwolves will open training camp with a “Dunks After Dark” Midnight Madness extravaganza and dunk contest, reports the Star Tribune. The event will also be shown on NBA TV.

The doors will open at Minnesota State’s Mankato Bresnan Arena at 11 p.m. featuring a scrimmage of the Timberwolves and a dunk contest between rookies Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine.

Wiggins is the newest member of the Timberwolves by way of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Lavine was the Timberwolves’ first-round pick this summer. Both rookies are known for insane athleticism, and what better way for the Timberwolves to display their new young talent than trying to create something of a college atmosphere to open the season.
