Flip Saunders Tribute
Alex from our office is a big Timberwolves fan -
I asked him to write a tribute for Flip Saunders.
Coach, we will miss you.
Many would consider Flip Saunders to be the face of Minnesota basketball. Before starting his coaching career, Flip Saunders played college basketball for the University of Minnesota and he was a big part of the Gophers team in his many successful seasons with them.
Everything good that has ever happened with the Minnesota Timberwolves organization, Flip Saunders was always a big part of. He started coaching the Timberwolves in 1995 and he ended up bringing the Timberwolves to eight consecutive playoff appearances from the 96-97 season through the 03-04 season. Flip was a big part in the drafting and developing of Kevin Garnett, the greatest Timberwolves player of all time. Flip was also responsible for bring Kevin Garnett back to the Timberwolves last year and many people say that if it wasn't for Flip he may not have came back. Flip Saunders came back to the Timberwolves for his 2nd stint with the team two years ago. He took over a team led by a disgruntled Kevin Love whose future looked bleak. Just two years later Flip has put this organization in a great position to succeed. Many would say they have the brightest future in the league.
The passing of Flip Saunders will be felt not just in Minnesota but all throughout the basketball community. While Flip Saunders was a great basketball mind, he was an even better person. You will never find anyone who has a single bad thing to say about him. His loss is felt in Minnesota by all.
Hopefully this young Minnesota Timberwolves team plays with a chip on their shoulder and goes out and has a great season in honor of coach Flip Saunders.
