Kurt Rambis Finally Fired

In this article…

Via Yahoo.com:

The Minnesota Timberwolves have fired Kurt Rambis as coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The Wolves are expected to announce the dismissal early this afternoon, and general manager David Kahn may hold a news conference to discuss it.

In two seasons as head coach of the Timberwolves, Rambis was a dismal 32-132. It's unfair to put all the blame on Rambis, as Minnesota has not been in a position to win during his tenure. General Manager David Kahn has been subject to plenty of criticism for a variety of shaky transactions.

Via AOL News (2010):

Kahn, in his second season as Minnesota's president, has had a controversial tenure thus far -- infuriating the Wolves' fanbase with his draft picks, trades and signings. Most recently, he traded emerging forward Al Jefferson to the Utah Jazz for virtually nothing and signed underachiever Darko Milicic to a four-year, $20 million contract.

However, Kahn's outspoken nature has defined him further, allowing him to become an overnight YouTube sensation after he compared Milicic to Chris Webber, who, incidentally, was sitting right next to him.

Reports surfaced before the NBA Draft in June that Rambis would be out as Minnesota's coach. The Timberwolves, as well as Rambis' agent, denied the rumors, but the outcome appeared to be inevitable and officially concluded today. Rambis played 14 seasons in the NBA, mostly with the Lakers. His career coaching record is 56-145.
