January 08, 2018 03:45 PM

The Timberwolves on Monday night welcome future Hall of Famer, LeBron James, for his one Target Center appearance this year. KSTP Sports talked to James before he and the Cavs had their shoot-around on Monday morning.

James likes the team that Wolves head coach/president of operations Tom Thibodeau has assembled -- James tried to recruit then free agent Jamal Crawford to Cleveland before he signed with the Wolves, and the Cavs talked to the Bulls about Jimmy Butler before he landed in Minnesota via trade.

James is in his 15th year in the NBA, and he once again is considered the front-runner for MVP. The Cavs are third in the East at 26-13, while the Wolves are fourth in the West at 25-16.
