Here’s the video shown before tonight’s Minnesota Timberwolves game honoring long-time coach Flip Saunders, who died last week of complications from cancer treatment.
Missing from the montage was Kevin Garnett. Deadspin reports he was too emotional to record a tribute.
Deadspin has video of the full ceremony here.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
