Timberwolves fire coach Kurt Rambis

Rambis already knew his time was up. If he still had a place in Sota then he's dumber then he looks. This guys was pulled along to long. The Wolves have been a mess after the KG era,and the departure of Mchale in 2009. I don't understand why it took them three months. They had a damn draft,and they could have been set on a coach by that point. Good luck to the next coach in town.

"People can argue about this should have happened and that should've happened, but I think collectively we felt that we were doing the right thing in terms of the way we approached it," Kahn said. "But I also recognize it took a long time. That's on me. And I realize that it can look more convoluted and complicated than maybe it really is, and that's on me. And to that extent I feel badly about that, too, and I apologize for that."

"I wish it was easier to do," Kahn said of finding the right coach, mentioning that 19 have been fired since Rambis took the job in 2009. "I feel certainly the weight of having to do this. I don't want to say this at Kurt's expense, but obviously we need to do it better than the last one."

"I'm grateful for the opportunity that Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has given me," Rambis said in a statement given to The Associated Press. "During my years working with coaches Jackson, (Pat) Riley and (Cotton) Fitzsimmons, I learned all about the ups and downs of this sport. And today is one of the down days.

"But I'm confident that my work -- and the work of my staff -- with our many young players over the last two years will begin to pay off for Mr. Taylor and Timberwolves fans. Now, as important new players are added to the mix, the future of this franchise should be a bright one, and I am thankful for the chance I had, to play a part in shaping that future."


I think Rambis should have stayed in LA LA land. Maybe he can go over to Jacksons ranch in Montana?

Nelson to Coach Wolves

 I think he will be a good coach for a young team with two speedy point guards. I think it's a short term fix. Nelson is in his 70's,and this would be his last stop without a doubt in my mind.
