1988 – Happy 25th birthday to Minnesota Timberwolves guard Alexey Shved who is in his second season in the NBA. He was a part of the Russian Olympic team that won bronze in 2012. Shved fit well into a backup role with the Timberwolves last season, but has not been able to get as much playing time this season. The oversized guard has talent that could help almost every team in the league.
