Total disclosure: I like Sam Mitchell, quite a bit, actually. He is engaging and entertaining, he’s got an opinion on every issue under the sun whether he knows anything about it or not, he never shuts up and doesn’t suffer fools gladly, not should he. He’d be asked about some injury to some player, he’d look behind his back and say “does it look like I have my medical degree? I don’t know.” Someone would ask how so-and-so was feeling and he’d roll his eyes in that way of his and say “he’s right over there, why don’t you go ask him yourself?” Toronto Star

His media relations overlords would blanche at some of his antics; “c’mon, Sam,” they’d say, “they know what you’re going to say but they need you to say it.” He’d eventually say what we needed him to say, albeit grudgingly. There’d be days when he’d stand after practice for 90 minutes talking politics and smack, debating whatever issue you wanted to debate and a whole bunch you probably didn’t want to. He could be full of poop and full of insight in the same conversation and if you called him on the former, he’d laugh with you and say, ‘yeah, you’re probably right.’ Toronto Star

Minnesota coach Flip Saunders missed the Timberwolves' game against Denver on Monday night because of an illness. Saunders has been battling the bug that has circulated through the team for a few days and was hopeful he could make it to the game after skipping the morning shootaround. But by Monday afternoon it became clear he wasn't feeling well enough to coach, so assistant Sam Mitchell took over. USA Today Sports
