Sean Grande was a Timberwolves broadcaster in the late 1990's before moving on to become the Voice of the Boston Celtics. Sean has a unique perspective in that he covered the rise of the Wolves with Kevin Garnett and then got to see KG get the ultimate payoff once he got to Boston. Some great stories here!
