Forget his draft lottery humor. Wait until he tries to show off his creativity with that No. 2 pick.

how can you say Kahn botched a draft? We still have the rights to the best PG in that draft. Rubio is better than Lawson, Curry, and the other point guards in the draft and he is better than Kyrie Irving in this draft. Rubio will be here this season. Kahn has also brought in Beasley and Randolph who are big time talents.

I like Souhan's comment about a show of hands. Let us have a show of hands for firing the con man, kahn. Fire the bafoon con man, Kahn.

Amazing. This guy will rival Mike Lynn and the Herschel Walker fiasco. Except, he does it in multiple seasons. There is no team in Kahn. I'd like to know how Rambis feels as a coach with Kahn calling all the shots. I am thinking of the term buffoon to describe the Kahn man.

RE/goodone---Is that you Kahn?

Nailed it. Kahn and his #1 draft picks is like the hick walking into a Las Vegas Casino with all the chips in his hands ready to lose it all in a matter of minutes. Kahn, do the smart thing by drafting the best player for YOUR OWN team.

There seems to be much hand wringing, brow rubbing and sleepless nights as to what we do with this draft. Here let Kellyesque fill you in on what is going to take place. First we draft Derick William with the number #2. Then we trade KLove and our 20th selection to Cleveland for their 4th. We then draft Enes Kanton. Not being finished we trade the Rubio rights to Utah and then select BKnight with the 3rd overall. There you have it. Our line up would be Enes at center, BKnight on the point, Beasley at the SF, Williams at PF and then we will sign the top unrestricted SG. You see running a NBA is not that hard at all. I can arm chair this thing to perfection. Sure we would be young but maybe we could lose enough games to finally secure the number #1 overall for 2012 whereby we would chose JSullinger. 2013 NBA finals here we come. Not liking my GM karma skills or you think they are somewhat unbelievable or unattainable. Well, all I can say to that is just think what the last 20 plus years from this organization has brought. You could have never made that stuff up. I rest my case. P.S BKnight becomes the next Marbury, Enes because T-Pup Longley and Williams becomes our version of DCousins. Now thats the T-Pups I'm used to.

1. Let the Wolves be the Wolves. 2. Fire Kahn. 3. Make ME general manager.

I know exactly what smartypants Donkey Kahn is doing...he's trying to set himself up as "the" storyline next time the Wolves hit the ping pong balls. Afterall, it's clearer than ever that he is rowing with both oars out of the water.

Right on the money Jim, as far as Kahn deserves to be fired, just not for that comment. And why would anyone coach for this guy when he obviously believes coaches should have no input into drafts. At least we all no who to blame for the recent draft choices......KAAAAHHHHNNN!!

The last thing this roster needs is another kid. The need a man who can tell the children what it takes to close out a game. Martell was supposed to be that guy but he flopped horribly.
