by far the best damn thing I have read today...long read, but so many unpublished details from the years

Former Lakers star Kobe Bryant may have left the NBA, but he's just getting started

T-Wolves are about to hire a new coach and GM. Coach Thibodeau:

Tom Thibodeau closing in on becoming coach, GM of Timberwolves, according to report - SBNation.com

-good move by Minnesota. This team hires a coach with one of the best defensive systems in the league.

One of the NBA's most revered defensive minds is close to heading to one of the teams that needs him the most. The Minnesota Timberwolves are finalizing an agreement with former Chicago Bulls head man Tom Thibodeau for the dual role of head coach and president of basketball operations, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Former New York Knicks GM Scott Layden is expected to join Thibodeau to run the day-to-day front-office operations, according to Wojnarowski.




Wojnarowski reported news linking Thibodeau to the job on Monday, but his sources suggested team control was a sticking point in the negotiations between the two parties. The veteran coach wanted final say over personnel decisions like hiring a general manager, drafting and free agent signings. With a reported agreement between the two nearly in place, it appears Thibodeau's wishes were granted.

Thibodeau is expected to make around $10 million per year after signing a five-year contract with Minnesota, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Thibodeau was brusquely dismissed by the Bulls on May 28, 2015 and spent the past year out of the coaching game. He'll take the reins of a talented, but inexperienced, Timberwolves team that won only 29 games last year.

The impending move is a homecoming for the 58-year-old head coach. Thibodeau's first NBA job came as an assistant during Minnesota's debut season as an expansion team in 1989. He spent three seasons in Minneapolis before building a reputation as one of the game's most dynamic defensive coaches in stints with the San Antonio Spurs, Philadelphia 76ers, Knicks, Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics.

That defensive expertise will help a young roster that ranked 27th out of 30 NBA teams in defensive efficiency last season. By comparison, Thibodeau's teams in Chicago never rated lower than 11th in the league and twice finished No. 1.




This impending hiring is the Timberwolves' latest attempt to recapture the glory of the Flip Saunders era at the turn of the millennium. Under Saunders and the leadership of superstar Kevin Garnett, the team recorded the franchise's only playoff appearances by qualifying for the postseason eight straight seasons between 1997 and 2004. With probable 2016 NBA Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns leading a roster that also includes 2014 No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins and enigmatic point guard Ricky Rubio, the team is hoping Thibodeau is the man to turn a talented team into a winning one.

Thibodeau was named the NBA's Coach of the Year in 2011 and has a 255-139 (.647) record in the pros. He's never endured a losing year as a head coach. If he can keep that streak alive, he'll give Minnesota its first winning season since 2004-05.

Layden has been in the NBA for more than 30 years. He was the Utah Jazz's general manager from 1992 to 1999, then served in the same capacity with the Knicks from 1999 to 2003. He later returned to the Jazz front office and has been San Antonio's assistant GM since 2012

The defending champions face adversity in the playoffs.

Chef Curry is out at least two weeks with a sprained MCL in his right knee.
Who would have thought a wet spot on the court can cause so much damage to a team.

The janitor messed up!

The second round of the playoff will be much more interesting when GS plays the Clippers.

Stephen Curry of Golden State Warriors out at least 2 weeks with sprained MCL

You have outspoken owners like Mark Cuban mouthing off against an opponent's star players. Cuban told reporters that Westbrook is "an all-star but not a superstar".

OKC scores 118 points on the Alice Mavericks (because they have no D. :troll): and Durant responds on behalf of Westbrook about Cuban's comments on his team mate.

Well said, KD!

Westbrook had a great game: 36 points, 19 assists, 9 rebounds.

What a turn of events... first Curry goes down for 2 weeks which gives Clippers possibly a punchers chance now both CP3 and Griffin are out for the rest of the playoffs.

Not that I ever really cared for the Clippers but giving the Warriors an easier road to the finals doesn't look good for my beloved Spurs lol.

Hoping Dame the cold blooded assassin can take out the Clips then give the Warriors a good run for their money.

DeRozan answered the critics with 30 points with so much pressure on him and Lowry. That block from Demar was surprising.

-first ever game 7 win for the Raptors!

There was so much tension late in the fourth quarter with Raptors turnovers. -made things interesting Paul George had a good series but made turnovers late in the game with some bad passes.

-gonna be some interesting matchups between Lowry and D-Wade. It is gonna be a physical series. De Marre Carroll needs to lock down on defence on Bosh, aka Jar Jar Binks.

Go Raptors! Beat the Heat!!
