Kahn’s Timberwolves had the best chance to secure the #1 pick in this year’s draft, which he undoubtedly would’ve used on Kyrie Irving, because we know how much he loves point guards. But alas, it wasn’t meant to be as the Cleveland Cavaliers won the lottery much to the joy of Dan Gilbert’s son Nick. And much to disappointment of Kahn, who decided to accuse the NBA of rigging the lottery without accusing the NBA of rigging the lottery.
Wolves general manager David Kahn said he knew Minnesota was “dead” when it got down to the final three of himself, Utah executive Kevin O’Connor and Nick Gilbert.
“This league has a habit, and I am just going to say habit, of producing some pretty incredible story lines,” Kahn said. “Last year it was Abe Pollin’s widow and this year it was a 14-year-old boy and the only thing we have in common is we have both been bar mitzvahed. We were done. I told Kevin: ‘We’re toast.’ This is not happening for us and I was right.”
C’mon, Dave. Don’t be like that. This outcome is for your own good. It’s time to draft something other than a point guard; whether you believe that or not.
And furthermore, we don’t like “somber” Dave. We like “I’m going to a write a letter proclaiming that we’re going to be good, over and over” Dave. But since you insist, I guess we’ll listen to more of “somber” David. Because we may not like it, but boy is it entertaining.
