Taylor and David Kahn, then president of basketball operations, decided in January 2012 to offer Love a four-year contract extension rather than the five-year maximum “designated player” deal that Love wanted. To convince him to sign, they offered the option of becoming an unrestricted free agent after three years. Taylor was asked if he now considers that decision a big mistake. He paused before answering. “Let’s wait one more year to answer that question,” Taylor said. “I think it’s a good question to ask at this point because Kevin has played as well as we hoped, and maybe even better. To have him tied up long probably would be better than not, but we still have one more year and we’ll see. My hope is it doesn’t make any difference, that Kevin can get the money one way or another and we’re in position to do that.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Minnesota business magnate Glen Taylor has made a formal offer to acquire the Star Tribune, which would add the state’s largest newspaper to his holdings of more than 80 companies. Taylor said in an interview Tuesday that he made a cash offer as an individual without any other investors. He declined to say how much he has offered to pay. “It isn’t that I’m interested in going around and buying papers in other parts of the country,” Taylor said. “I’m interested in this one because it’s a Minnesota paper.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

If Taylor acquires the Star Tribune, he said he won’t take on a managing role with the company, although he might put a family member on the board. He also said the management would remain the same. Minneapolis Star-Tribune

As commissioner, Stern lived up to his title. He was the league’s chief cop, stamping out behavior that could make sponsors skittish. He was swift with suspensions when a player refused to stand during the national anthem, went into the stands to fight a fan, or choked his coach. (He also hit Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban with almost $2 million in fines over 13 years, mostly for criticizing referees.) “He was very effective at being the sheriff,” says Glen Taylor, owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves and chairman of the NBA board of governors.
