08:08 AM ET 09.13 | Coming out of a terrible weekend in Twin Cities sports, the Timberwolves made, for once, the most positive headline with the presumed hire of Rick Adelman. With one patient, well-executed move by owner Glen Taylor and basketball president David Kahn, they convinced [Adelman] to be their next coach and they got Kevin Love to talk more optimistically about his future in Minnesota. ... Whenever Love was asked last season about his future with the team, he said he would wait and see how the franchise's rebuilding work progressed. "I always said one of the things we'd have to have is a great coach," said Love, who under the NBA's old labor rules could be a restricted free agent next summer. "Now, we've got a great coach."

In my best Jim Mora voice--playoffs, you kidding me? Adelman has a better chance of getting pregnant than getting this team to the playoffs.
