Kahn must really think that T-pup fans are that stupid! Shouldn't he be over in Spain with his mancrush on Rubio?

The "CON" man came here with no clue on how to build a winner, and he remains without a clue. What has all his moves and talk done? NOTHING!
It's tough being a follower of the tenderwolves! Real tough!! ;-(

The reason no high profile players are attracted to or want to come to Minnesota is pretty plain and simple.........The Timberwolves S U C K!

Winning 32 games in 2 seasons is absolutely pathetic. Hey Dave Kahn, reality check.......Ricky Rubio has avoided you like the plague......can I send you a quarter so you have enough money to buy a clue?!

"Kahn, in his second year with the Wolves, remains determined to build a winner. He expects his team to contend for a playoff spot next season. "

I want what he's smoking.

Mr Kahn,

You are delusional! Two years counting and zero improvement. You have done nothing to instill any confidence that it will be any different next year. NBA do us all a huge favor and contract this sorry franchise.

OK, we weren't promised the world this season, but the word "mediocre" definitely came out of David Kahn's mouth as to what to expect THIS year. Now, another year passed, and it's like every other year. Sadly, I think a LOT of fans would have been fine with mediocrity and some tangible signs of progress, and we saw none of that.

The ONLY thing that MIGHT lure marquee players here is salary cap space. But we've had that for years as well. Players know this franchise from the top down is CLUELESS. THAT is why they do not come here. Couple that with our weather... Kahn, you are delusional and these "pep talks" hardly give me confidence in you. Quite the contrary.

No McHale type mistakes? How about passing on a chance to get Yokam Noah? sp? I knew he was ging to be a major player just by going to a few games and watching TV. And I don't get paid big bucks by GT to make these decisions. Another mistake drafting players before signing a coach. Johnny Flynn would have fallen down if not taken by the Wolves and if a coach had been on board my guess he would not have wanted Flynn.

Lastly a mistake is all the smoke he's been trying to blow up our---- about making the playoffs next year. Why not a promise for doubling this years wins or some other attainable goal

Kahn is right, if rubio does come in next year, here is your starting five w/o a free agent: K-Lo, Beasely, Randolph, Wes Johnson and Ricky Rubio....well, ok, so the free agent would have to be a shooting gaurd, sorry wes! But you can be the 6th man and flynn, you can be trade bait...

pretty minor stuff. Most analysts had Flynn over curry, the best choice he could have made. No one is perfect. Pull your head out of your sorb.

Remember about McHale - he had a boss and Glen made the big decisions. Remember the illegal contract for Joe Smith (I think it was Smith). That was all Mr Taylor and McHale was the public face of the team & the fall guy. Billionaires are never to blame...

Different date, different players, same BS.
This is the worst team in the NBA year after year.
For a very successful businessman, Taylor has run this organization so poorly, I almost think it a deliberate attempt on his part for this business to lose money, again, year after year.
