Minnesota Timberwolves fans sure are excited about Kevin Garnett’s first game back with the team.
Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press has tweeted out pictures showing just how long the line is to get into the arena for KG’s return.

One can count on the atmosphere for the Wednesday night contest against the Washington Wizards being electric.
The Timberwolves traded with the Brooklyn Nets for Garnett in front of last Thursday’s NBA Trade Deadline, reuniting KG with the franchise that drafted him and with whom he spent the first 12 years of his career with.
Garnett hasn’t had a great season and is a shell of the superstar he used to be — he averaged 6.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game this season with the Nets. But one shouldn’t be surprised if Garnett has a big game tonight in his first game back with the T-Wolves.
Minnesota drafted Garnett with the No. 5 pick in the 1995 NBA Draft. For his career, he’s averaging 18.3 points, 10.2 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game. He is a one-time NBA champion, 15-time All-Star and four-time All-NBA First Team selection.
