Here's The Minnesota Timberwolves' 'Welcome Home' Video For Kevin Garnett

After stints in Boston and Brooklyn, Kevin Garnett officially rejoined the first NBA team he ever played for on Wednesday.

And as is required by federal law, that team, the Minnesota Timberwolves, created a video montage of their former star during the good old days, placed its over an emotional backing track, dimmed the lights and played said montage in hopes of an emotional moment during team introductions.

We can’t confirm, but at least one season ticket holder probably cried.

Overall, we give the video a “B.” While the video clips are good, filled with lots of screaming and dunking and emotional head-banging-against-basketball stuff, the choice of Kanye’s “Homecoming” seems a little misguided. Too light-hearted.

For Garnett, something like Slayer’s “Raining Blood” feels like it would have been a more appropriate choice here.
