Ripples...

As you've probably heard, Donnie Walsh's reign in NYC has come to an end. As a result, there has been plenty of speculation that Mike D'Antoni may also be on his way out of NYC. While Toronto would certainly seem like a natural next move for him, word on the street is also that the Raptors would rather pick a defensive-minded coach.

On a slightly unrelated note, Zgoda reports that Kurt Rambis approached the press today to air his grievances about the way the Wolves have handled his contract situation.

These two components in 1 day can only lead me to 1 conclusion: Wolves = SSOL 2.0.

Just think about it. In our wildest dreams about Rrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiickyyyyyyyyyy, he's already Nash 2.0. Without doing any of that burdensome (or potentially bubble-busting) statistical analysis, I can easily picture Beasley as a second coming of the Maxtrix in his prime. Add Anthony Randolph as a runner and jumper (and ignore D'Antoni's apparent disdain for him), and consider Kevin Love's Channing Frye-like 3 point skills combined his insane rebounding skills. 

While I'm not sure that a D'Antoni-led team would ever reach the promised land, it could, I think, do something novel, that the wolves haven't considered for a while: play to the roster's strengths. This could be the run-fun-and-gun team that we were promised, and that Coach Rambis killed.
