David Kahn embarrasses Timberwolves with claim lottery was rigged

NBA officials are evaluating whether to fine Minnesota Timberwolves president David Kahn for comments suggesting Tuesday night’s draft lottery was rigged, sources told

A decision on what to do with Kahn over his latest insensitive and inapropriate public remarks could be delayed because top league executives are traveling and scattered for multiple events, including the pre-draft camp and competition committee meeting Wednesday in Chicago.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Clearly, David Kahn never learned the difference between inner and outer voice.
The inner voice is what you think but don’t say. The outer voice is what you say after you’ve thought about it. There is, essentially, a self-censor process. 
Now the Minnesota Timberwolves executive had every right to think something was amiss after the Cleveland Cavaliers won the draft lottery. The timing was too much.
One year ago, they lost their last first overall pick, LeBron James, when he signed with the Miami Heat as a free agent. It wasn’t just that he left. It’s how he left, mainly The Decision.
Last night seemed too convenient for the Cavaliers, especially with the owner’s son attending the event. 
So Kahn went with his inner voice. He forgot about the self-censor, accused the NBA of an Oliver Stone type conspiracy, and embarrassed the Timberwolves.
Correction: he continued to embarrass the Timberwolves. His club was again a disappointment in 2011, even with Kevin Love’s heroics on the glass.
Something has to give. Hopefully, owner Glen Taylor will look at who represents him and makes changes.
