It seems the Timberwolves’ coaching search has been expanded. Which makes sense since Rick Adelman is apparently putting on his “don’t touch me” face. The latest entry into the sweepstakes is none other than KG’s mentor, scorer of the first points in Wolves history, former NBA Coach of the Year and total righteous dude Sam Mitchell himself.
Mitchell is, in many ways, the people’s choice for the job but he’s yet another candidate who lacks that lusted-after pedigree for up-tempo basketball. Is that even a thing we’re doing anymore?
Incidentally, when you search “Sam Mitchell Timberwolves” on youtube, the only really relevant thing is this little clip of Sammy getting crushed by Penny Hardaway. Such is the sad fate of the NBA yeoman.
