Wolves Fans Take Solace: Kurt Rambis is Bringing Back the 80s

In addition to Johnny Flynn, Kevin Love, Al Jefferson, and the rest of what is still a promising young roster, T'Wolves fans can at least delight in the fantastic trio of 80s legends that comprise their coaching staff: in addition to head coach, Kurt Rambis, the Wolves also have Reggie Theus (sadly, sans jheri curl), and legendary Pistons' bruiser, Bill Lambier, set to come on board as assistant coaches in Minnesota.

From Skeets at Ball Don't Lie:

Laimbeer, 52, resigned as the Detroit Shock's head coach in June after winning three WNBA titles in seven seasons, but he is probably best known for playing with the Pistons' "Bad Boys" teams in the late '80s, irritating the hell out of opposing players and fans, and endorsing a futuristic basketball video game in which physical play is encouraged. Also, that mask.

Theus, 51, coached the Kings to a 44-62 record before being fired last winter 24 games into his second season. He previously coached New Mexico State and was an assistant coach at Louisville, but is probably best known for ballin' in the '80s, that GQ photo above, and playing a high school basketball coach named Bill Fuller in NBC's Saturday morning sitcom "Hang Time." 

Lose out on Rubio, win incalcuable amounts of unintentional comedy? I wonder if they'll let Reggie Theus coach shirtless.
