Ankle sprains are usually at least a week or so.

Why haven't Lazars spirits warned us about this crap?

I've sprained my ankle playing ball, if you don't have an injury history of sprained ankles, you could be out for 3-4 weeks.

If it's happened before, it might just be a week or two.

I'm not a kahn man myself, but firing him because this team has lost players to injury is pretty funny.


LOL

I actually agree with this somewhat.

Now if Kahn wasn't in the final year of his current year, I could see him sticking around because of all the injuries (see: 2011-12 Minnesota Timberwolves). However, since this is the final year of his current deal, I don't see injuries being used as an excuse to keep him around.

Well, I'm sure hardcore Kahn haters will say he put up a team with injury prone players.

:roll:


It doesn't matter if it is Adelman's influence or not, Kahn got it done. He has put together a team full of talented players. To ignore that fact is just being thick.

Work results.


Work results, ladies and gentelmen.

Work results.

I just think the team needs a new vision. Kahn has had his time and it just hasn't worked. The new GM can come in, fix the relationship with the front office and Love and we can move forward as an organization

Unfortunately the FO issues go above and beyond the GM.

If you're referring to Taylor, hopefully he finds a buyer soon.

Sorry but even you have to admit that all the injuries are far from Kahn's fault. The only big question mark of all the injured players was Roy. It was a gamble that didn't pay off. The other big injury related question mark before this current team was assembled had been Kirilenko, who has surprisingly been pretty much healthy this year. The rest of the injuries occurred on freak accidents and all that. It's hardly Kahn's fault.

Adelman being responsible for the majority of personel descisions last offseason - context.
Most of the Wolves roster being injured - context.

According to Kahn's defenders context doesn't matter.
Results do.

This are the results.

Admit that Kahn is an incompetent buffoon, whose job was almost saved by a HOF coach, and I'll admit that he has nothing to do with the injuries.

Return to Minnesota Timberwolves
