Lets hope Flip can do something to turn this shipwreck around. The Wolves are close to irrelevant in this town so they need a jolt. My guess is that if the Wolves continue to flounder and not make the playoffs, Taylor will sell, and this franchise will probably relocate to Seattle.

Taylor is NOT selling to anyone who will move the team...

The Star Tribune ran this exact same story last week, and the Wolves would not confirm the information. If the story came from a'Source' again why should we believe it this time? The media has a real accuracy problem these days:(

Isnt Malcom Lee a Kahn pick?

Flip has been talking a big game now its time to put your money where your mouth is. Go T-Wolves.

Stanturn: "We want to thank David for all of his efforts the past four years with our basketball team," Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said in a press release. I think you can believe it....

The only good thing I can say about Kahn's tenure is that he is leaving the team with more talent (should have way more) then the team he inherited.

Replacing a basketball newbie with a wannabe. The revolving door of managers and coaches continues.

Hopefully, Saunders will remember that true center Earvin Johnson was a key member of the Wolves best starting team ever. The only true centers on the Wolves today are Steisma and Johnson, neither considered an average NBA player. Pek plays the "big forward" and Love has rebranded his game somewhere between an outside shooting number 3 spot player and a forward. The Wolves need a true center more than a shooting guard, as so many people seem to think.

If Kahn would have just done the obvious and not over think everything we could have had a squad of Rubio, Curry in the backcourt, Love, Jefferson, Kirlenko (assuming he would have pursued AK47), in the front court. Ty Lawson ( or Rubio), Pekovic, and Corey Brewer coming off the bench. We'd have won well over 50 games, injuries would not have been as devastating and we'd be a top 4 team in basketball. Kahn always impressed me as that guy who thought he knew everything and could talk a great game, but never could admit when he needed help.
