Interesting take on Rambis and Kahn

8

I don't typically expect to read this from mainstream media, but there's a lot more to this story than what we've been told (Rambis is the victim here). An excerpt: Still, Kahn wasn't 100-percent sure he wanted to fire Rambis. What he wanted was for the coach to come to the realization that he needed to change. The young Wolves needed more positive input. They needed a leader with a little fire. They needed to see a guy in their corner willing to go to the mat for them during basketball games. So Kahn asked Rambis to perform a written exercise. Maybe you could even call it a homework assignment. He asked Rambis to put down on paper how he planned to do things differently in 2011-2012. What will he change? How will his approach differ? This is when the real trouble started. This request was made on a Monday. Kahn asked that the report be turned in that Friday so he could digest it over the weekend. Friday came and went. So did the next Friday and the next. Kahn called to inquire as to the whereabouts of the report. He got a: Yeah, it's coming. While there was an uproar over Rambis "twisting in the wind," Kahn was waiting on the report to see if Rambis was in any way salvageable. Eventually, the document arrived. I don't know what it said, but clearly it didn't change anyone's mind. It if had, Rambis would have received that vote of confidence.
