During the Summer League game featuring the Minnesota and Sacramento, announcer Chris Webber and Wolves General Mananger David Kahn got into a bit of a skirmish.

Around the second quarter, Kahn joined commentators Chris Webber and Matt Winer to discuss the plan Minnesota has set in place.

Webber made it clear he would ask in so many words what the Timberwolves' plans for the future were, as aside from the former Kings star, many other basketball minds and even fans have scratched their heads at the decisions and moves of Kahn.

The discussion eventually turned to the re-signing of Darko Milicic and the question of why he re-signed him.

From that point, the conversation degrades to Kahn comparing Darko's passing ability to Vlade Divac's. 

The conversation becomes stranger when Kahn discusses Milicic's struggles in the NBA and compares it to Chris Webber "finding his way" in the league.

I never would have thought that two polar opposite careers, you know a long and illustrious one and a player who has pretty much been a scrub his career thus far, could even be compared.

C-Webb then asked Kahn not to mention himself and Darko in the same sentence.


And he concluded the interview with a very sarcastic bid of luck to the head of the Timberwolves brass, stating, "Good luck."  

Now, Kahn could very well be right about his evaluation of Darko. He could very well be correct.

I'm not doubting his intelligence and the possibility that Milicic could be a really good passer, but ease up on the comparisons to Hall of Fame players. 

Especially when the player has yet to put up numbers worth anyone discussing in a tone other than a scoff.

The guy has been a certified bust so far though, I don't know too many people that would argue that he isn't.

Except maybe David Kahn.

It appears Kahn feels Minny is a few years out and they are attempting to stockpile the team with whatever players they see fit, even if they have two other players that play that same position with another sitting overseas. I'm referring to the signing of Luke Ridnour, which is nearly official.

The T'Wolves had been looking to unload Al Jefferson for quite a while now, and just did. But it's questionable that they could have gotten more than a trade exception and two first-round picks.

Especially when Jefferson was supposed to be the centerpiece in the trade that sent franchise player Kevin Garnett to Boston.

Perhaps Kahn really has a master plan that I just don't see. But, it would be a plan that myself and other basketball people are scratching their heads over as well.

Either way, Kahn is a strange man with a strange plan. Hopefully for the fans in Minnesota, it all works out.

Hey, I guess it could be worse. He could be running the Warriors. Or be Isiah Thomas.

Now that would be truly awful.
