VIDEO: Minnesota Timberwolves Going Through "Growing Pains"

It happened again.

Remember this post from a couple weeks ago and you'll recall the brilliant video by the "Minnesota Timbertrolls" that set Minnesota Timberwolves footage to the opening tune of the classic sitcom "Family Matters." If you're like me, you thought that there was no possible way to top the hilarity of that video.

You're wrong.

Observe the Timbertrolls' latest masterpiece, which splices in classic footage from Timberwolves players with the theme song to "Growing Pains." Yes, you read that right.

This video has it all. Staying true to the opening credits of the original TV show, the Timbertrolls roll out old footage and photos of Timberwolves players in their younger years and shows them progressing as they "grow up" in the NBA. Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Luke Ridnour, Michael Beasley, and even coach Rick Adelman are included. And last but not least, apparently somebody had access to Anthony Tolliver's parents' photo albums, because that's the only explanation for the extremely old school pictures featured in the video.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the terrible former hairstyles, crazy basketball moments, and comedic gold that emanates from the Timbertrolls' latest masterpiece.
