Well, since Kahn made the stiff list I thought I would share some info (not that it's top secret) with all of you about the man. for those that don't know, I'm currently stuck in treacherous Minneapolis and over the summer, I was oddly selected to participate in a Timberwolves discussion group (I was rewarded with 3rd row seats to a game (not of my choice)). basically we were just asked to discuss a series of questions and such that I won't bore you with. I will however tell you about the unwavering optimism in Kahn at the time (this was after the draft and before Rubio decided not to come). They really believed he was this genius that was going to right the ship. They liked his "transparency"
I kind of kept quiet the whole time as it wasn't really my place to say much. I'm not, nor have ever been a Twolves fan (I do like their original jerseys though). I try to watch them while I'm here and support them but I assume once I leave, I won't like them anymore. and one of the reason is is that there's no connection to or continuity with this team. I feel like any player on the TWolves could get traded any day now. I'm still baffled over drafting two pgs that are natural pgs with no jump shots all with the idea that they'll play together. I'm baffled as to why they just didn't draft rubio or flynn and Stephen Curry - it would make more sense to me if they wanted to play a short person at shooting guard that he at least be able to shoot. The funny thing about the draft is they drafted 4 pgs and the Nuggets got the best one of them. Lawson is outplaying Flynn in a lot less minutes. They then proceeded to sign Ramon Sessions to 4 years meaning that IF Rubio (big if) ever does come over, somebody's going to have to get traded. The only other 2 guys on their team of value at this point (though I do like Corey Brewer and am pulling for him) are Al Jefferson and Kevin Love - they technically play the same position! So now your 4 best players play 2 positions. It doesn't make any sense to me! I know Khan isn't responsible for that (McHale is) but I'm not so sure that that guy has a master plan. Thank you for reading.
