The Timberwolves coaching staff resembles a poor man’s version of an NBA Superstar posters from the 80s. Most people would have trouble naming three players on the Wolves roster, but with the addition of Bill Lambeer and Reggie Theus, I bet most can name three coaches.
Lambeer is best known for his days as a member of two championship Piston teams. He’s also won three championships as the head coach of the Detroit Shock, so he used to winning. He’s also a defensive minded coach, which should add a nice wrinkle to the Wolves run and gun offense.
The verdict is still out on Theus. Are the Wolves getting the man who led the Kings to an abysmal record or are they getting coach Bill Fuller? Coach Fuller led the Deering Tornadoes and taught life lessons for thirty minutes every Saturday morning. Fuller would be a good fit with the Wolves. He could bring in sharp shooter Teddy Broadis to fill a need at shooting guard and Julie Connor would be a great point guard to have coming off the bench.
