Kurt Rambis was hired on as the head coach to the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves back in 2009, and needless to say our status in the NBA hasn't improved. He led the Wolves to an embarrassing 17-65 season last year, leaving the Minnesota team with the worst record in the NBA.  This morning the Timberwolves let the coach go.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor gave Rambis the four year contract he asked for when he signed on as the head coach for Minnesota, so that means there are two years left that Taylor will have to compensate Rambis for on top of paying for a new head coach.

And if that doesn't hit the Wolves wallet hard enough, the looming NBA lockout could pose a threat to the teams income if games are taken off the schedule.

It's no secret I could care less about basketball, but even I know this isn't looking good for Minnesota.
