01:16 PM ET 03.22 | After twice considering quitting this season, Timberwolves head coach Rick Adelman may resign in the summer if his wife continues to have issues, according to Scott Howard-Cooper of NBA.com. Adelman left the team for three weeks in January to be with his wife Mary Kay, who had been hospitalized due to unexplained seizures. Minnesota went 2-9 in his absence. This is not all too surprising, because his family is certainly more important than basketball--especially at this stage in his career. Adelman, 66, began his NBA coaching career for the Trail Blazers in 1989, and since coached for the Warriors, Kings, Rockets and now the Timberwolves. If he leaves though, it could be the beginning of the end for the Kevin Love era in Minnesota, as Adelman seems to be one of Love's strongest bonds in Minnesota.
