Flip Gone
Well, Nick, you've been calling for his head for a couple weeks now and he finally lost it. Kevin McHale has fired his longtime friend and college teammate, Flip Saunders, and taken over the coaching duties himself. I don't know if you were talking to Wolves general manager Jim Stack, but it sure sounds like you:
"Flip's been here a long time and in the history of pro sports, sometimes when you're here for that long, your voice starts to fall on deaf ears," Stack said. "I'm not sure if that's what happened here. It's an issue of underachieving."
That's gotta be a tough move for McHale, but it had to be done. I have my doubts about whether it will help much - a trade or two would have been better - but things couldn't continue the way they were.
