    Surprising for Adelman, would have expected him to hold out for a better coaching position.

    Who else thinks Adelman can make this Twolves team relevant?

    Not me. Interesting that he'll be coaching Rubio after Morey tried so hard to get him.

    This damn recession has caused Rick Adelman to lose his self-respect and human dignity. So very sad.

    Working for David Kahn is one small step away from ******* **** for drugs on skid row.


    EDIT: To be honest, the Wolves are not totally devoid of talent: Love is a good piece, and there are several other good prospects (when you draft top 5 ever year, it's kind of hard not to have anyone with some potentials). The problem is I just don't trust David Kahn not to screw up royally with moves going forward.

    Remember his stint with the Warriors? Probably not because it wasn't very memorable.

    I expect it will be similar to that.

    I don't know about you guys, but I think David Kahn is pretty smart.

    Wolves have some talent, they'll end up a 8th seed in this years playoffs. You heard it first from me.

    You think the Wolves can have a better record than the Rockets? Unless Morey goes on a post-lockout selling binge that empties all our veteran talent, I don't really see it.

    I'm as big a fan as anyone on this board but where along the way have we been a contender the last 2 years? Unless you mean a contender to make the playoffs, which we missed both years, something over 50% of the league makes every year.

    Yeah, we are not contenders, let's not fool ourselves. Not without a real infusion of talent.

    In other news, Shane Battier was spotting house shopping in Minnesota today.

    Adelman must have a serious man crush on Brad Miller.

    Adelman clearly wasn't ready to hang it up. A couple of GM's are going to regret not going after him hard. He'll make the T-Puppies relevant.
