It’s sad to read about a good NBA coach leaving us sooo soon to horrible cancer. I didn’t even know Flip Saunders was sick not one bit, hadn’t heard that one. Last I heard was he and Garnett were trying to buy the team, the Timberwolves. I actually saw Flip last preseason at a Wolves vs. Bulls matchup, and he looked fine. According to ESPN he had just found out in the spring of 2015, which led him to back away from the team as President and Coach. Then now Oct. 25 2015, 60 years old to suddenly pass away, wow.
I wonder where that leaves the Wolves front office and Kevin Garnett as the Vet mentoring the young Wolves. R.I.P. Flip!!
