With the news of Ryan Saunders being fired and Chris Finch being hired, Britt Robson of The Athletic joins for an instant reaction podcast. We discuss:

  • The decision to go with Finch instead of David Vanterpool
  • Finch’s history with Gersson Rosas, dating back to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the G-League
  • How letting go of Saunders removes one layer of Rosas’ shield
  • What this might mean for Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards, D’Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley. How does the Minnesota Timberwolves’ identity evolve?
  • Karl-Anthony Towns’ comments after tonight’s game:

“If you want to build a legacy, we gotta win. I want to build my legacy here. I want to win with the Wolves and I’m gonna do everything I possibly can to step-by-step, brick-by-brick build something.”

  • Reflecting on our personal relationships with Ryan Saunders as media members.
