Kahn is a Creep

I watched his shabby act with the NBA Development team in Fort Worth. What complete slick, dishonest, unethical snake. He would spin his stories and then leave people who tusted him high and dry. Kahn's responses are just the same tone as what he did in Fort Worth. He has that arrogant, self-important tone like he has everything under control. Hold on to your pocket books....you thought McHale was bad? The Wolves can sure pick 'em. Mr. Slick is in town.

While everybody is hyper-ventillating over Ricky Rubio, J. Flynn has said all the right things and is already putting in his time in the summer league. People shouldn't sleep on this kid. As a huge fan of Syracuse basketball, I watched him play a ton. He's obviously not as flashy as Rubio, but he's more of a QB on the court who will provide the much needed leadership this team desperately needs. He will hopefully make us forget about the immature Rubio very quickly next season.

Glen Taylor should sell the T-pups and at this point, hearing what all the "star-quality" players say about playing in Minny, I wouldn't care if they moved this abomination out of the Twin Towns. I like basketball, but let's face it, this is a hockey state and the only time the Wolves did well attendance wise was when all we had here for a hockey team was the Minnesota Moose. I still love that name though! A lot better than Wild. Anyway, i got off topic there 'cuz my meds kicked in, Kahn got rid of McHale 'cuz he couldn't control him, botched the draft and now he doesn't even have the common sense to say (lie) that he likes it here in Minnesnowta. He's working so hard to bring us a winner. This team was coming along pretty well until our big guy went down. We didn't know it at the time, and neither did McHale's Navy, but that was the beginning of the end for that team. If they would've been left alone with McHale as the coach, Kahn would've had plenty of time to find a new home here. But he wouldn't have had any claim to whatever the team achieved this year and I'm sure that this ego-driven putz couldn't stand that idea. Taylor, please, I'm begging you, you are out of your depth in this basketball thing. Sell this team pronto, before your money is all gone because of this Black Hole you call the Timberwolves (another terrible name.)

Kahn? An egotistical goon. People in the NBA think he's a joke......and yes, I've to a few. Another reader says Taylor is in over his head? Yep, couldn't agree more. Nice guy, but a putz for a basketball owner. Writers like him though because he loves to give interviews and yap, yap, yap. Stay in Mankato, Glen. That's where you're comfort level lies.

Taylor is over his head and Kahn is an operator. But the NBA is full of slick characters and in the end who cares if they win. Its clear Kahn has a vision and his draft picks while controversial could turn this team around. Flynn and Ellington are likely both better than Foye and worthless Miller. Rubio will star at some point. If he picks Jackson or Rambis as coach people won't be complaining about his ego or arrogance. Kahn is far better than McHale and he's got a good chance to put Minnesnowda on the NBA map again.

This interview is garbage. Kahn needs to allaborate more other then "i can't comment on that". Sounds like David Kahn't.

why all the hate? can't we all just get along? kahn can't be worst than McFail and "Trader Jack" McCLOSKEY. The Wolves never really have had much success with GM's. O'yeah can't forget Bill Stien but wish I could.

people should watch out for flynn with jefferson and love down low he will rack up the assists and he can drive the ball with the best of them. he has a very good shot at rookie of the year this year. even if rubio ends up coming over from spain

sebastin telfair is a better point guard than johnny flynn and will prove that as the season goes on. all rookies are hype up to be star players, he is not just gonna back down neither.

You're like the boo bird entourage to Sansevere. Wherever he goes, regardless of content, you're there to throw out a meaningless jab. Find a new hobby... or a job.

Telfair is going to have to prove it on the Clippers now. Might get plenty of playing time behind the fragile Baron Davis.
T-Wolves today traded Telfair, Madsen, and Craig Smith to the Clippers for Quentin Richardson, a shooting guard that can't shoot. A lifetime shooting percentage of 39.8%, but the Wolves again are saving more money. Yeah!!!(sarcasm).

la clippers, have bigger body's than the minnesoto timberwolves, plus the #1 pick, they will definetly win more games than the timberwolves, they are going nowhere for the next 10 years.

johnny you sound like you might actually be telfair. he's a good player (i mean you are a good player) but you are related to marbury who f***** us over cause he couldn't get into the downtown clubs cause he wasn't 21. Flynn will be better than telfiar is or will be. Telfair you shoulda went to college to help refine your game. I loved watchin ya play for us but we just found a better option at the point.

and u must be a real true minnesoto fan, if u think this team can win 20 games next year, with no true center and 3 rookies who all wants to start. i dont think they can beat oaklahoma city, or memphis, or sacremento. at least they will be in last place. and go for the number one pick. next year.

it doesn't matter if we don't have a true center. jefferson still school them anyways. and just cause we might have three rookies on our team doesn't mean ****. we got rid of a lot of the people who where taking min away from more deserving players.
