I've said it before and I'll say it again, there aren't many people like Flip Saunders.

A person who had it all professionally and personally yet treated everyone as if they were just as important as he was.

The response since his all too early passing has been a prime example of how many lives he touched and how many people truly miss Flip Saunders.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have got off to a 2-0 start but both of those games were on the road and on Monday, the Wolves returned home to Target Center where Flip Saunders had taken that franchise to new heights.
