Ricky Rubio is without his mentor and protector on the Timberwolves

Ricky Rubio se queda sin su mentor y protector en los Timberwolves
Not might words, but rather this is a headline form La Marca, Spain's most important Sports newspaper. Also from the article:
David Kahn, presidente de operaciones de los Timberwolves desde mayo de 2009 y gran mentor y defensor de Ricky Rubio en Minneapolis, "Ricky es intocable", deja la franquicia de las Ciudades Mellizas según publica la CBS.
Translation: Kahn, President of Basketball Operations for the Timberwolves sinde May, 2009 and the great mentor and defender of Ricky Rubio in Minneapolis, saying "Ricky is untouchable", left the franchise of the Twin Cities according to an announcement from CBS. I personally sure hope that Kahn didn't mentor Rubio too much, as the article says. The article also mentions the failures of Kahn being drafting Flynn, signing Milicic for 20 million dollars (it also mentions how he called him Mana from heaven", drafting Wesley Johnson and passing over Greg Monroe, Cousins, Saunders, Blesdoe, screwing up the Kevin Love contract negotiations and having a poor record as POBO.
