David Kahn: Knicks Have No Shot at Rubio

I love that the NY Post called Kahn “eccentric”: “Timberwolves eccentric GM David Kahn is friends with Donnie Walsh, serving as understudy to Walsh with the Pacers. They had dinner together Monday night in Manhattan. But Kahn won’t do Walsh any favors and bluntly said before last night’s 132-105 Knicks rout at the Garden the Knicks president does not have the pieces to trade for 19-year-old Spanish point guard sensation Ricky Rubio, who’s playing this season in Barcelona. With Walsh a few yards away, Kahn, prone to grandstanding, stood on the Garden sidelines and told reporters the chances of Rubio becoming a Knick anytime soon are almost nonexistent because of the Knicks’ lack of prime-time assets. ‘Donnie and I have talked a grand total of three times in the last nine months (about Rubio),” Kahn said. ‘From the moment we talked, I said to him — and I mean no disrespect to the Knicks or Donnie — what kind of trade can they possibly propose?”‘

    shouldn’t the media be easy on khan since he’s essentially one of ‘em?

    knicks have about as much chance of seeing rubio play for them as the t’wolves

    he’s right. I wonder if the minnesota timberwolves win the lottery what they will do? I guess they’re gonna trade. they only got point guards and power forwards with quality. corey brewer is allright and the rest of the team sucks

    Guy’s just trying to show he’s not a pushover after that draft debacle – how do you start the draft with 4 picks and leave with 1 player?
