Bounce Brothers

Andrew Wiggins has only been with the Minnesota franchise a short while after being involved in the blockbuster trade that sent Kevin Love to Cleveland, but he has already developed a close relationship with fellow rookie for the Timberwolves, Zach LaVine.

Both players are known for their ridiculous jumping ability and off-the-charts athleticism, Wiggins and LaVine will undoubtably feature heavily on Sports Center's top 10's this season, especially with a point guard like Ricky Rubio throwing the alley-oops.

The name inspired by the 'Splash Brothers' Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in Golden State, the Minnesota rookies have used inspiration from the Warriors guards to nickname themselves the Bounce Brothers.

The rookie pairing performed at a "Dunks after Dark" spectacle at Training Camp and Wiggins also spoke of his eventful summer, that landed him with the Timberwolves.

Minnesota's future

The Timberwolves unfortunately play in the tough Western Conference and despite off-season moves, the young roster is expected to have a difficult time making any headway towards a playoff berth this season.

The future is bright for the franchise, as depicted by the video which highlights the two players who will be key to the success of the Timberwolves.

Wiggins was obviously the first overall selection in this years draft, so the expectation for the young shooting guard is going to be very high, he is considered to have boundless potential and will certainly able to hone his craft in Minnesota.

LaVine is only 19-years-old out of UCLA but was selected with the 13th overall pick by the Timberwolves to add depth to the shooting guard position.
