Rick Adelman is your new Timberwolves head basketball coach. The Wolves made news of the hire official Tuesday, after everyone on Earth had reported it on Monday. Bottom line: It's seen as a positive move for a troubled franchise.

At the Pioneer Press, columnist Tom Powers wanted to give it a big thumbs down, but couldn't. In the end, he says Adelman "is a winner ... well known for his teaching skills," and just what the Wolves need.

Fox Sports North had a nifty slideshow taking a quick look at Adelman's NBA coaching career. He was at Houston from 2007 to 2010? Man, times flies.

The most interesting post we saw, however, came from NBA writer Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo! Sports. His theory: Adelman isn't a big fan of David Kahn, and basically came here for money and Love. It's really a great read.

How about you? Excited that Adelman is leading the pack? Let us know right now!
