08:05 AM ET 03.05 | Back in December 2011, the last time the Heat played in Minneapolis before Monday, LeBron James said T-Wolves fans could expect to see a winner, but that hasn't materialized. If anything, the organization feels like it's approaching a critical crossroads. ... Can the team really afford to let David Kahn oversee those decisions? The answer to that is obvious. They must know it internally, too. Lampooning Kahn's draft history has become a cottage industry and this is not intended to pile on, but the Wolves desperately need a new basketball boss to tackle the big-ticket items that await this summer, whether it's Flip Saunders -- as reported by Sid Hartman over the weekend -- or someone else.

Flip Saunders? Lol

Apparently you don't read the news very often.

Saunders was asked to head a group of investors to buy a minority stake in the Twolves in the near future and then buyout Glen Taylor when he is ready to sell the rest of the time.

He already has strong connections to MN, from his playing days at U of M, coaching in the CBA in the area around MN, to his coaching days with the Twolves. Even after he was fired and coached in Detriot and Washington, he still kept a house in the Twin Cities area (as far as I know, he still has it) and his son plays for the Golden Gophers.

When he was here, he was a fan favorite, was highly involved in the community when he wasn't on the sideline at the Target Center, and most importantly, respected by the players, his collegues, the community and by anyone who had a chance to meet him.

The only problem I have with this is why wasn't he the GM 10 years ago?
