    You may be right.
    Chances are the Twolves will clean house again in a year or two...
    I'm not sure the Laim in the D chapter is closed just yet.

    And there's a decent chance Kuester lands on his keister. Let's keep our fingers crossed...Ommm... :sssh:

    I guess it's a paradox to me. I believe Kuester is going to be very successful with Detroit but I also believe they are going to greatly regret letting Laimbeer slip through their fingers to go to another organization.

    Oh yeah, I'm not allowed to post stuff based on my beliefs unless I post statistics with it.


    Here are some statistics.

    How come this news has not made the circles yet? NBA.com nor espn.com has none what so ever acknowledgment of this.

    Anyway if Kurt Rambis failed to get the team above .500 by mid season then I can definitely see Laimbeer be installed as head coaching. Also I think it's a great deal for Laimbeer because I knew that the Pistons won't be hiring him and plus it's a young team they got in Minnesota just like how the Shock was when he took over that team. The Timberwolves may be THE team to watch out for in the west.

    Didin't Laimbeer once took down Rambis hard during their rivalry back in the late 80's? Is that what Rambis wants Laimbeer to teach those young wolves?:pound:

    You think they'll give Rambis a whole half a season before they can him? I think if he's not above .500 after 10 games then he's out.

    They'll probably screw it up and hire Theus to take his place though.

    I think there is a logjam at SG. Perhaps it is the GM's fault for not bringing in Sammy Mejia for a workout.

    Very Very Very Very Happy for Bill Laimbeer getting his foot in the door and I hope the NBA coaching world turns out to be everything he wants!

    See that's what I don't get, the whole coaching staff fails if the team doesn't respond. If Beer fails Rambis I don't want him here. Maybe Laims just coaches bigs but still quilt by association.
    Beer better stay there until the Wolves are winners.

    That's what I was thinking. They were rivals. But that was long time ago and apparently Crash Rambis does not hold grudges. Good for him, he hired a pretty good assistant.

    And he won't be playing Rubio at all...at least this or next season

    Kahn: Rubio backed out of coming to MN this year

    very true: Laim actually hoped that Rubio's skill on the court could "negate" assistant coach's bad decisions. :cold::MusicBigGrin:

    Its possible that playing for the likes of Rambs and Lambs scared Rubio into staying put in Spain for two years until these two are canned....
