I really don’t know what to say about Minnesota Timberwolves GM David Kahn. My T’Wolves blogger Peter Christian has really said it all. On multiple occasions. Kahn is a moron when it comes to social judgment, and evaluating talent. Here’s an extension of that sentence in many more words and harsher prose.
I have to hand it to NBA TV’s Chris Webber, he really handled this incident with aplomb. It’s not every day that someone takes one of the biggest draft busts in NBA history, a player who has not produced ANYTHING at the professional level, despite being taken #2 overall in his draft class, and compares him to you.
When you happen to be somebody with a 14 year NBA career that featured six All-Star appearances. And you’ve been ranked in the top 75 players of all-time by Bill Simmons’ “The Book of Basketball.”

Kahn digs himself a deeper hole when he talks about how C-Webb “needed time early in his career to figure it out.” Webber WON THE FREAKING ROOKIE OF THE YEAR AWARD. Wow Kahn really is basketball retarded.
Enjoy the vid, the fun begins around the two minute mark.
