Is this the end for Rambis?

Changing coaches would be the most likely move in a long line of tries to restart the woeful Wolves, but their troubles extend past the sideline.

Really, blame the coach? Where's the article about how Glen Taylor has run this franchise into the ground?

Rambis and his stupid triangle system were 100% wrong for this team! The writer was right on to suggest that you do not use the same tactics that Phil Jaskson uses to guide a very young team. Young guys need motivation not aloofness!

I agree... He's trying to force the triangle on a bunch of kids who just aren't equipped for it.

I have no problem with the triangle, the problem is we dont have that STUD player that can do whatever he needs when things are working. I think this team still has potential, they are one good player away from turning things around in the draft, not to mention they need to either get rubio over here and see what he has or trade him. I want one more year from Rambis, I think this team could be .500 next year IF rubio comes and IF they get a top 3 pick and get a shooting guard.

Before this coach is fired I want players on this team that are NBA ready.To fire Rambis given what he has had to work with is sad.All this team has right now is a bunch of young players with some potential.It is easy to blame the coach but these players on this team currently are not even close to being able to win in this league.Some veterans need to be added to this team and the only way that will happen is through trades.Some of these young players will need to go to bring in a more balanced mix of veteran players and young talent.If Taylor truly wants to win he will need to pay some money.All players on this team currently need to be considered in a trade package.I would like to see players like Monta Ellis and Andrew Bynum added to this team.If available they should pick Kyrie Irving and trade Rubio's rights for a first round pick next year.

Kahn is, and always will be the problem. You can't expect Rambis to win with what he was given.

I would rather see Kahn fired. A great coach could make them better, if they could find one, but nobody is going to win much with this roster.

Blaming the Coach, the GM and the Owner??? How about talking about the players on the team? They are a young group with some good talent. They are missing a quarterback to run this team. It sure isn't Ridnour or Flynn. It might be Rubio. They should keep Rambis and Kahn for another season.

i like rambis, though we have young athletes, might be better with a showtime style offense, particularly when rubio gets here. though i suppose that isn't love's game. phil jackson took 3-4 years, and the acquisition of gasol to aid kobe, before that offense jelled in los angeles. i'd give rambis one more year, he does have another top 5 pick, rubio, and a few maturing players, perhaps we'll be good next year.

the biggest mistake of this regime was drafting flynn. Curry, jennings, jrue holiday, or even ty lawson would have this team in a much better spot
