Kurt Rambis the former Lakers player doesn't look anything like "Kurt Rambis" the current Lakers assistant coach. The completely different facial appearance cannot be entirely explained by a different hair style, contact lenses and the absence of facial hair. Has the new Wolves coach had a little work done? Good luck, Coach, and welcome to Timberwolves Nation but don't sell the LA house.

I think Kurt Rambis will make a fine coach for the 'Wolves or any team that hires him. His vast knowledge of the game and past experience as an assistant coach should bode well for him.

Mark Madsen makes a lot of excellent comments/points about playing tough defense, rebounding - all the facets of the game that so many of today's players lack. I wish more players felt that way.

Good luck to the Timberwolves this season. I hope Kevin Love continues to improve and becomes the fine, solid player I think he'll be. His experience with USA Basketball in July has to be a BIG plus for him.
