Flip will introduce Flip during a Target Center news conference today.
As Roger Daltrey of The Who once said, "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss..."

Yesterday, Flip Saunders -- the winningest, longest-tenured coach in Timberwolves history -- hired himself to become the new-old coach of the team. That's possible because Saunders was hired last summer by Glen Taylor to be the Wolves' President of Basketball Operations, which means he has the power to fire and hire coaches. And oh yeah, he's also part owner of the team. Maybe Flip can find some spare time to sell season ticket packages too? After all, with Kevin Love apparently no longer wanting any part of Minnesota, the sales staff can probably use all the help it can get.

Kevin Garnett takes a shot at T-Wolves management, and who can blame him?

Anyway, even if Flip really was the best man for the job, the nepotistically incestuous move (Flip is reportedly hiring former Wolves Sam Mitchell and Sidney Lowe to be his assistants!) was quintessential Taylor-era "country club" Timberwolves and left a lot of people with a sour taste. And as you'd expect, many of them took to Twitter to share their frustrations, humor, and analysis.

Below are the 10 most entertaining tweets we saw.

Bonus late-breaking honorable mention 10. Hey, it could've been worse... 9. A lot of people felt this same sort of vague yuckiness 8. Remember when Dick Cheney led George W. Bush's effort to find a vice presidential candidate and ended up choosing himself? 7a. How we look to the national NBA media (spoiler alert: not good) 7b. Keep in mind Bill Simmons is purportedly tight with fellow Californian Kevin Love 6. It can't be ruled out! (For the top five, click to page two.)
