Listen: Timberwolves, Derrick Rose And Tom discussed on After Hours With Amy Lawrence
"Right. When I got the call. I was in Cleveland. Harveson? The clues mistake by myself with me and my logo mad at him. Joan bar won't there. Five days a week highly kid at that time. Baby girl. And no teams wasn't looking for me. Basically the league. And even coming here. No, I was going to play this way. He believed in our believe in family believed in and or a believe that we got it done. Like, I said that make not gonna play the same way kill yourself. I believe in myself. So that's the money cut there at the end, so to speak Derrick rose saying it multiple times in his comments about Tom those people who say that I can't continue to play who don't believe in me. Will you can kill yourself. He did later apologize and said that he was just passionate about what has meant to him. And that he didn't mean to be insensitive. Yeah. I think those comments again would have been a much bigger story. Had it not been for the fact that you had the college football national championship where a lot of the sports media was pointed. But when you hear it so having read the comments. Yeah, they definitely were eyebrow raising. But that hearing what Derrick rose that actually hearing the words come out of his mouth. There. They're a little more studying at that point as for the Timberwolves. Who knows where they go from here. I thought it was somewhat interesting that the locker room feigns surprise. We had no idea. This was coming like Karl Anthony towns actually said no one saw it coming that was going to get fired. I kind of feel like it, maybe not a foregone conclusion. But that it it still wasn't working there. Even after the departure Jimmy Butler. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. I do like the idea that Ryan Saunders is going to take over. His dad was flip Saunders who meant so much to the not just the the early stages of of the Minnesota Timberwolves and making them a team from a friend from an expansion franchise to a team that would eventually make the playoffs. But a bunch of superstars went through there, of course, Kevin love and Kevin Garnett. And he was kind of the the father of that franchise. And now his son is going to take the lessons. He learned into this. Interim coaching job and we'll see what happens after this season. They're not that far out of the playoff picture. The whole west is. Pretty much jammed up. But I think the Timberwolves are just three games out of the number eight spot in the Western Conference."
