Video of former Wolves coach Kurt Rambis signing autographs and posing for photos with Lakers fans, shortly after finishing an appearance on ESPN. How nice is it that Rambis is back in LA and the Wolves have a real coach for a change?

Rambis's pre-game interview before the game with Houston last night was almost the equal of David Kahn's appearance earlier in the day. He had his chance to answer many of the same questions Kahn had tackled. (Their relationship? "Uhm... It's businesslike.") Definitely a must see for those waiting on one or more axes to fall. Pretty difficult watching, though.

Regarding recent rumors about Love and effing Kelvin Sampson... From article: 3) Don't doubt that someone may have told CBSSports.com that Kurt Rambis is in trouble in Minnesota. But if that's so, that stinks. For two years, the Wolves have done nothing but turn over their roster, bringing in younger and younger players, and asking Rambis and his staff to teach and live with all those Ls on their ledger. You don't win with young in this league; you win with talented veterans, and other than Kevin Love, the Wolves barely have enough talent to compete on a nightly basis. (Michael Beasley can score, no doubt, but his defense, like Love's, is, uh, a work in progress.) Lottery picks Jonny Flynn and Wes Johnson have been slowed by injuries, and the big man combo of Darko Milicic and Nikola Pekovic has been decidedly meh. "This team plays hard," Rambis said last week, "and they have moments where they play extremely well together at both ends of the floor. But they haven't connected it for 48 minutes. They allow teams to get on runs. Clearly we lack the composure and experience and savvy, and maybe in some extent, personnel, to finish out games when things are tight. You know, that veteran, calming influence." A team source insisted this weekend that it would take a major collapse down the stretch for management to even consider replacing Rambis, who got a four-year contract with the Wolves for that very reason -- to take a lot of losses while developing the team's young talent, including still-in-Europe Ricky Rubio. (The Wolves can buy out Rubio's contract in Spain next season for $500,000, with Rubio paying the remainder, and Minnesota still expects Rubio will come over next year, regardless of whether there's a lockout.) The Wolves have already won more games this season than last, with a month left in the season. Love, who clashed with Rambis last season, has seen that playing on a really bad team won't keep him from individual accolades like making the U.S. World Championship team last year and the All-Star team this year -- and as such, the source claims, Love isn't going anywhere when and if he becomes a free agent.

Kurt Rambis Doesn't Show Love.....Love.

3 games into the NBA season and Kurt Rambis is already placing Kevin Love in the doghouse in favor of (drum roll...) Anthony Tolliver. Love, is thus far averaging 14 PPG 13RPG 85%FT and 40%3P in just 25 minutes a game. The whole reason I'm making this post is because last night I had a dream that we traded one of our swing man and a future 1st rounder for Kevin Love. I know, this probably wont happen and Love is probably too nice of a guy to demand a trade but you can't blame a guy for dreaming, right? I couldn't think of a guy who would be better suited for our system then Mr. Love. I hate being the guy who makes a post about some stupid never to happen trade scenario but...I just had too. I know i'm not the only person on this site who has a man-crush on Kevin Love.

The Timberwolves' coaching search is over. The news conference will have to wait a couple more days. Wolves owner Glen Taylor confirmed late Saturday night that the team has come to a verbal agreement with Los Angeles Lakers assistant Kurt Rambis to be its next coach. Taylor said it's his assumption that Rambis will sign the contract, believed to be for four years and more than $8 million, on Monday and be introduced at a Tuesday news conference. "Kurt, with his experience playing and coaching for a winning organization and working under people like Pat Riley, will bring a lot to our organization," Taylor said. "In meeting with him and talking to him, I know he's very excited about having an opportunity to help build his own team."

The PiPress's Don Seeholzer confirms that Kurt Rambis is the Wolves' new head coach.
