Report: Laimbeer and Theus to Minnesota

Word is that Kurt Rambis is building his coaching staff with some recognizable names: “A good league source tells me new Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis has chosen two notable names to supplement top assistant coach Dave Wohl on his staff: Bill Laimbeer and Reggie Theus. That’s a staff certainly with some name recognition now. Laimbeer unexpectedly quit his job as the Detroit Shock’s head coach and general manager in June after winning three WNBA titles in seven seasons as the franchise’s coach, presumably to pursue NBA coaching opportunities. He has never coached in the NBA.”

    Not might be much help. What the Wolves need is some more good players.

    I was going to put in some good words for the team, but, it’s Minny we’re talking about. Let’s just see how they play first.

    Laimbeer will be a 1 and done assistant coach, he will find a head coach job by 2010/11

  • riggs

    why would anyone put theus as head coach again?

    Rambis might be a good coach but the Wolves don’t have a good team.

    Frustrating season + Rambis + Laimbeer = Guaranteed fight on the bench

    I can see it now. T-Wolves down by thirty at the half. Rambis is desperate. Laimbeer and Theus come out of the locker room in their short shorts.

    This is better than a head coach Mark Jackson and assistant-Patrick Ewing duo? How are any of these guys run-and-gun? Mark Jackson would have been a perfect mentor/coach for Flynn. “Slow and go” is the new motto in Minny.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Co-sign Big D. Mark Jackson and Patrick Ewing would make a great coaching duo.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Although, a Rambis/Laimbeer/Theus trio SOUNDS pretty cool.

    (undersized) 5- Al. Jeff… 4-K.Love… 3-???? 2- Corey Brewer?….. 1- Flynn….. Wolves need a true center, move jefferson to the Four, bring love off bench, and an experienced pg, maybe a Chris Duhon or Nate Robinson(let Rubio get his way by being in NY, little did he know…..) With a center,sf,and or sg, they could win games..

    @ Terry: Starting SG should be Wayne Ellington.

    @Teddy: Is he a rookie?
