Timberwolves finally hire a coach.

In Game 4 of the 1984 NBA Finals, Kevin McHale “clothes lined” Kurt Rambis when they were opposing players.

25 years later, McHale has hamstrung Rambis.

With Rambis having been hired as the coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, he takes over a franchise marred by poor personnel decisions of former Wolves VP McHale.

Rambis eventually got his revenge for the clothes lining when his Lakers beat McHale’s Celtics in the 1985 and 1987 NBA Finals. As McHale’s successor in the head coaching position, it’s uncertain what kind of retribution Rambis can employ with what has been a moribund franchise over the past five seasons.
