The Timberwolves wanted Coach K?

Published on June 28, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

According to the New York Daily News Minnesota Timberwolves General Manger David Kahn tried to make a run at current Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski. I didn’t believe this, but a Kahn confidante told the New York Daily News that “He tried to get him.”

Why even waste your time to get Coach K? I mean did Kahn really think he would leave one of the best college coaching jobs to coach the worst team in the NBA? Coach K already turned down a chance to coach the Los Angeles Lakers; probably the best coaching job in the NBA. With the Lakers he could have coached Kobe Bryant; no offense to Kevin Love he is not in Bryant’s league. The Timberwolves could have offered Coach K all the money in the world and there would have been no way that he took that job.

If I were Coach K I would be looking forward to coaching star incoming freshman Austin Rivers more than Ricky Rubio who is coming over from Spain to play for the Timberwolves.
