What did we do to you, Glen Taylor? What have we done to earn your wrath? All we have done is try to care for your basketball team, and insist on some standards for the people who work for it (and own it). We don’t do it out of hate or spite. We do it out of love.
And this is how you repay us? By driving away three qualified candidates to hire a guy who’s been out of the league for seven years and racked up a string of lawsuits and unhappy campers in the D-League. Just great.
For years, it’s been fun to call the Wolves front office a “country club”, as coined by KFAN’s Dan Barreiro. At this point, though, some new term needs to be developed. At least country clubs have some standards and try to make things better. Glen Taylor’s shop is one of no accountability and not caring about building a winner.
I was tempted to go back to buying tickets for this team if the right sort of hire had been made. Now, it’s back to wait-and-see mode.
