Kurt Rambis Seems Unhappy With Timberwolves Situation

Kurt Rambis hasn't been fired as the Minnesota Timberwolves head coach yet, but he hasn't been given a vote of confidence from Wolves president of basketball operations David Kahn either. 

The two had been on a bit of a hiatus when it came to discussing the (mis?)management with the media during the Wolves first round of pre-draft workouts, but Rambis decided to give his side of the story over the weekend.

"I think everybody has reasons for why they conduct the business in the way they want to conduct their business," Rambis told the Associated Press. "If you're asking me if that's what I would do, no, that's not how I would handle things. But everybody's different."

That might be the best reason to keep Rambis -- he wouldn't handle things the way Kahn does -- but it's also rather redeeming that the veteran NBA player and coach is taking the high road when it comes to this debacle.

"It's out of my control," Rambis said on Friday. "It's what I said at the end of the season. There's nothing I can do about it. I just have to proceed like I am (the coach) and do my job."

Hopefully, for everyone's sake, he learns his fate one way or the other as soon as possible.
