Why Kevin Mchale should be fired.

They had to forfeit picks in 2001, 2002, and 2004 due to an illegal secret contract agreement between the Timberwolves and Joe Smith in violation of the NBA’s salary cap rules. Based upon an arbitrator’s original ruling, the Minnesota Timberwolves forfeited their own first-round draft picks in the 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005 NBA Drafts, were fined $3.5 million, and the contract between Joe Smith and the Wolves was voided. Eventually the league awarded the Timberwolves their first-round picks in 2003 and 2005 due to sustained excellent behavior in their operations. They had to forfeit their first round draft picks remember this was a average team that couldn’t make it out of the first round and really could have used the picks to win. Not to mention the Roy to Foye deal. As well as this years draft trading a all-star in Mayo for a Mchale clone in Love.
