Despite defeating the Los Angeles Lakers by 22 points on Sunday, the Minnesota Timberwolves have decided to move on from head coach and team president Tom Thibodeau.

That’s the word from Shams Charania of The Athletic.

This comes after just two-plus seasons in Minnesota and following a surprising 47-35 2017-18 campaign.

Thibodeau’s tenure was defined by a rift with former Wolves star Jimmy Butler and an inability of the young core to progress thus far this season. Even after Sunday’s win, Minnesota heads into the midway point in the season with a lackluster 19-21 record.

Needless to say, Twitter was full of reactions after news of the coach’s firing on Sunday evening.
