It takes announcements like this for us to take a step back and realize what’s truly important. Because at certain times, wins, losses and championships don’t even matter. Some form of that is probably what those close to Flip Saunders is thinking as he announced today that he has cancer. Flip, however, will not take a leave of absence and will continue to steer the ship in Minnesota.
