You always draft for best VALUE...especially while REBUILDING.

This was a GREAT draft by Kahn!

the nba is too physical for ricky rubio, in my opinion, he needs to get stronger or else they will just elbow him and push him around, u have to be physical in the nba.

kahn is a moron...all he had to do was get a decent center...thabeet, then draft flynn who looks better than rubio on all the youtube clips, ellington is a good shooter..why the fuck they drafted what's his face and traded him to denver i don't know...they need a center, and a small forward..shit you could even play flynn, ellington, kevin love at sf, al at pf, and thabeet at center. plus these guys have no depth..they wasted a few picks here and will always be one of the shitty teams in the nba because of their drafting and free agent pick ups..

They didn't use the draft to obtain the most value. If they were going to draft players that weren't going to play they should have drafted the best available and traded for quality nba players that can make an impact. 2 out of their 5 picks will see playing time this year and they had 4 first round picks. They're draft grade is nothing better than a C. This is a franchise who also drafted busts like what's his name from fl and nbui ebi or whatever his name was. traded a ray allen for starbury (joke). also shouldn't have traded kevin love. so the guy can rebound but doesn't score enough. dennis rodman was a good rebounder but didn't score very much

No offense but do you know anything about the twovles draft history..they drafted garnett, who after that has been out of the first round? traded brandon roy, oj mayo, and ray allen, not to mention drafting that hs bust in 2003 and that other bust from fl who's always hurt.

Thabeet wasnt there when they drafted, and they would have had to trade Love and the #5 to trade up and get him. Thabeet sucks anyways. Kahn has a plan, which is better than anything that's happened with this team over the last 20 years.

BTW, I think you should post a few more times on this item... Just sayin.:)
