Minnesota Timberwolves President David Kahn’s Moment of Truth

May 24th, 2010 by Kevin Lindsey Leave a reply »

We all knew when David Kahn took over as President of the Minnesota Timberwolves a little more than a year ago that the rebuilding process for the franchise would mean more losses than wins in the short term.

Kahn implicitly admitted that a ton of losses were on the horizon when he  stated that he would need at least 17 months to transform the Timberwolves[1] .   No one panicked in Wolves Nation as no one believed that a few minor changes would turn Minnesota into a title contender.

The plan from the outside appeared to be relatively simple.

First, hire a head coach and staff that would be respected by the players and who would be patient during the rebuilding process.

Mission accomplished. The resume of head coach Kurt Rambis includes NBA titles as a player and as an assistant coach studying under the tutelage of Zen master Phil Jackson.
