Kahn wouldn't comment specifically on the future of any given player, saying now is not the time, but said this summer is a time for all the young players to show how serious they are about their careers, like Kevin Love did last summer. But he added, "I'm a little patient than most." He refused to answer where Darko has played his last game and if the team will use its amnesty clause on him and wouldn't shed any light on what he thought Michael Beasley's future with the team is, or isn't. (That bold part really scares me.)

David Kahn, "Survivor" castaway?

+

Does anybody watch "Survivor?" Does anyone else think one contestant bears a striking similarity to our very own POBO? His bio is at the link. They call him Cochran on the show. Woody Allen is the easy comparison, but he's a dead ringer for a young KAAAAAAAHHHHHHHNNNNN. He sounds like him. Same ethnic group. In Harvard Law, but not the guy you want handling your murder trial. Despite his apparent enthusiasm for the game, he doesn't appear to understand it. He even says, "I have a strong sense of humor that can defuse tense situations." Nope, hasn't been effective to this point. Yet while others are jettisoned, he's still there on the island. And 600 First Avenue is kind of an island.

GM Ratings- Kahn at 30

20

30. David Kahn, Minnesota Timberwolves (last year: 26) STYLE: Mover and shaker. THE GOOD: He actually got Ricky Rubio to come over. THE BAD: There will be many more words in this feature, so I'll just save you the time. BOTTOM LINE: Not ranking Kahn last in last year's edition was far too kind. (A mover and shaker refers to someone who is always active around the draft and trade deadline and isn't afraid to use every roster avenue possible to improve his team.) *My apologies if someone has already posted this and I missed it.

Rambis's pre-game interview before the game with Houston last night was almost the equal of David Kahn's appearance earlier in the day. He had his chance to answer many of the same questions Kahn had tackled. (Their relationship? "Uhm... It's businesslike.") Definitely a must see for those waiting on one or more axes to fall. Pretty difficult watching, though.

Regarding recent rumors about Love and effing Kelvin Sampson... From article: 3) Don't doubt that someone may have told CBSSports.com that Kurt Rambis is in trouble in Minnesota. But if that's so, that stinks. For two years, the Wolves have done nothing but turn over their roster, bringing in younger and younger players, and asking Rambis and his staff to teach and live with all those Ls on their ledger. You don't win with young in this league; you win with talented veterans, and other than Kevin Love, the Wolves barely have enough talent to compete on a nightly basis. (Michael Beasley can score, no doubt, but his defense, like Love's, is, uh, a work in progress.) Lottery picks Jonny Flynn and Wes Johnson have been slowed by injuries, and the big man combo of Darko Milicic and Nikola Pekovic has been decidedly meh. "This team plays hard," Rambis said last week, "and they have moments where they play extremely well together at both ends of the floor. But they haven't connected it for 48 minutes. They allow teams to get on runs. Clearly we lack the composure and experience and savvy, and maybe in some extent, personnel, to finish out games when things are tight. You know, that veteran, calming influence." A team source insisted this weekend that it would take a major collapse down the stretch for management to even consider replacing Rambis, who got a four-year contract with the Wolves for that very reason -- to take a lot of losses while developing the team's young talent, including still-in-Europe Ricky Rubio. (The Wolves can buy out Rubio's contract in Spain next season for $500,000, with Rubio paying the remainder, and Minnesota still expects Rubio will come over next year, regardless of whether there's a lockout.) The Wolves have already won more games this season than last, with a month left in the season. Love, who clashed with Rambis last season, has seen that playing on a really bad team won't keep him from individual accolades like making the U.S. World Championship team last year and the All-Star team this year -- and as such, the source claims, Love isn't going anywhere when and if he becomes a free agent.

The Dumbest David Kahn Quote Ever (so far)

50

From Jason Quick's twitter, before last night's game: "Wolves GM David Kahn says pregame that he thinks PG Flynn will be an All-Star one day" Either Kahn is a complete idiot, or he thinks everyone around him is a complete idiot. Neither scenario bodes well for his skills as a GM.

It doesn't sound like Beastley harbors any ill will. I'm impressed by his attitude.
