Even without Kevin Love, Minnesota will make Western Conference tougher - Article Photos 1/1

In this photo taken May 3, 2013, former Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders is introduced as the Timberwolves’ new president for basketball operations during an NBA basketball news conference in Minneapolis. It's seems like an odd pairing at first. Saunders, the slick, media savvy executive who wears designer suits. Rick Adelman, the curmudgeonly coach, who dresses in all black every day and has no interest in small talk. Together, they represent this long-suffering franchise's best chance to become relevant again. (AP Photo/The Star Tribune, Richard Sennott)
