The Timberwolves have been the Frankestein project of the NBA, a team built by a crazy mind with a foolish plan. They drafted as many PGs as possible, still passed on Curry because of Flynn´s awesomeness, kept Luke "I´m better than Steve Blake because I have a mid range jumper" Ridnour, and when Ricky Rubio finally came after 2 years of waiting for him, they signed José "Just In Case Rubio Is A Bust" Barea in free agency, so they could have two point guards on court at the same time and, once the opposing team had adjusted, use the three point guard line-up. No joke. At this point you may think that the Wolves haven´t used a four PGs line-up because they run out of PGs. Well, that´s right, although not probably the main reason.
Fact is Wolves GM´s obssession for PGs is only matched by his own love for PFs. And that love became flesh. Anyone would have thought the Wolves should be satisfied with one Love. But Kahn is himself and not anyone else. Therefore, the Wolves went for Anthony "Sad Face" Randolph, Anthony "The Blazers Didn´t Want Me For Free" Tolliver and Michael "Bugs Bunny´s Sleeping Eyes" Beasly,in addition to drafting Derrick "The Caged Lion" Williams and spending a first round 4th pick in Wesley ""Johnson, who played PF in college, but Wolves fans will tell you that he´s playing at SF and, moreover, that he actually deserves to be sent to play in Poland, with all due respect and no mercy for that country.
Because this monster still needed a center of gravity,Kahn threw a contract at the statue of Darko Milicic, signed the injured shadow of Brad Miller and asked if there was anything else left in the Balkans, where fe found Nikola "Knight and Skulls" Pekovic, just because he had a nice tatoo. Rubio has come as the spring for Pekovic, so he is now blossoming, instead of being the bear bust many thought.
Monsters don´t need wings. But just in order to fill its 15 men roster spots the Wolves gave contracts to Wayne Ellington, Martell Webster and Malcom Lee. Lee is the one who has helped his team the most, having been injured all season long. No joke.
In his last Igor impersonation, Kahn put Kurt Rambis multi-microfractured brain at the head of the monster. The monster, who should have scared the heck out of the league, was instead making them laugh. He scared Minnesota fans though, so it worked somehow from the comedy-thriller entertainment industry standpoint.
Even the longest night will have an end. At the end of 2011 ACB Playoffs Ricky Rubio anounced he was taking his flair to the mountains and valleys of Minnesota, the Wolves fired Rambis and offered the coaching job to Rick Adelman, who politely said "No thanks, but I will help you to find a coach, haha". But somehow Adelman changed his mind and accepted the job.
