Firing Rambis would pretty much make me walk away from supporting this franchise all together. This team is young and talented. They have some room to make noise in free-agency, they will have a high draft choice, and the core of their team is between 21-23 years old. Rambis didn't draft Johnny Flynn over Steph Curry, Ty Lawson, and Brandon Jennings. And how many more wins is any of those PG's worth when placed on this team? Give Rambis 2 more seasons. Give this group together 2 more seasons. Then judge the result. But, don't fire the coach because a 21 or 22 year old with minimal experience in this league has an occasional temper tantrum. This team simply needs stability and patience. Kahn should apologize for the Flynn/Rubio draft, and get Kurt a PG.

The Wolves are on a positive course. Turned the corner so to speak. With so many serious injuries this year, only now have we had a full complement of players. The growth of individual players and the team area tribute to the whole coaching staff, starting with Kurt Rambis and certainly Bill Laimbeer. Kurt could have easily and deservedly blasted several of the players in the press this year (a la Phil Jackson), could have insisted on a trade or two, etc. He remained loyal to the team concept and to the players. Give him at least one more year, or better yet the full remaining two years on the contract. You could see the light turn on in the players heads and on their faces the last two games. By their comments and actions you can see they are more anxious than anybody to win more games this year and especially get started on next year and make a run for the playoffs. Stay the course with Rambis.

Kurt has suffer thru 2 almost total rebuilds. Now that some light is opening up at the end of the tunnel, he deserves at least one year of walkng into camp knowing at least knowing who his top 7 or 8 players are. Unless perhaps Rubio doesnt like the Triangle and is balking at playing under the system.. Then please strongly consider Sam Mitchell.

..Hope this is just a Unfounded Rumor. Rambis had absolutley nothing to do with last yrs draft. THis is pretty much Khans Team. Yes a new coach would show improvement simply because the team is starting to get it. But credit should go to Kurt for getting what coulda been a trainwreck back on the rails. Any move by Khan now would just be a Ego thing making Rambis the Fall guy for what every one knew would be a big losing season.

This would be another plenty stupid move by the Wolves.

It would be Wolves-esque to blow it up and start over when they are both improving and fun to watch for the first time in years.

The inmates are in charge in the NBA. I hope it doesn't carry the day here.
