   Where Are They Now, 2011: Bookkeeping The Retired Guys
2011-04-19

Fred Hoiberg - Hoiberg left the Timberwolves to take the head coaching position at Iowa State, despite having had no previous coaching experience. He went 16-16 in his first season with a 3-13 conference record, and has seemingly determined that the place should become a haven for transfers, having already scored all four of Chris Babb, Chris Allen, Korie Lucious and Royce White as commitments. Whether or not that's an excessive amount, time will tell, and it's certainly risky to land that much history on one team. But it's certainly a strategy.

Hoiberg's role in the Timberwolves front office is now officially the Vice President Of Basketball Operations. Job titles tend to carry different meanings for different teams; for example, John Paxson is the Vice President Of Basketball Operations while Gar Forman is the General Manager, but while Gar does all the leg work, Paxson ultimately has final say. In contrast, other Vice Presidents Of Basketball Operations include Tom Penn (Portland), Sam Hinkle (Houston) and Mark Warkentein (Denver); the last one is fully in charge, while the other two aren't. It's not exactly a uniform title, but in Hoiberg's case, it means he is second to President of Basketball Operations, David Kahn. As for the difference between Hoiberg's role and that of General Manager Jim Stack, I couldn't say. And as for what Rob Babcock does as assistant GM, I don't know. Either way, there's no Kevin McHale any more.

To be fair, Eddie Robinson was also responsible for the best headband-related moment in Bulls history. Jamal Crawford missed the first three quarters of the 2001-02 season with an ACL tear, and in the first game after his return, Robinson floated the idea that the entire team wear a headband, like Crawford did, as a show of solidarity of unity and respect for their returning comrade. Fred Hoiberg looked completely ridiculous and took his off at half time.
