9. Kurt Rambis

Team(s): LA Lakers & Minnesota Timberwolves
Tenure: 1998-1999/ 2009-2011
Overall Record: 56-145

With a team void of experience nobody expected the Timberwolves to contend when Kurt Rambis took control in 2009, but with young talent in Kevin Love and Jonny Flynn (and in Rambis' second year, Michael Beasley), the team was supposed to be competitive and improve. Technically they did improve, going from 15 wins in Rambis' first year, to 17 in his second, but somehow that wasn't enough, and Rambis was fired after his two-year stint with the club yielded an NBA worst 32-132. A year removed from Rambis control, the Timberwolves are above .500 and in the hunt for a playoff spot. Ruuuuubbbbbbiiiiiooooo!
