HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – There’s never a dull moment when Minnesota general manager David Kahn is involved.
Toss in a live microphone, a volatile topic (Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley and his struggles, on and off the court, in Miami) and you have the potential for some serious fireworks — Kahn delivered the goods on a Minneapolis radio show Thursday.
Love him or hate him, Kahn knows how to stir up attention … you might remember his courtside chat with NBA TV’s Matt Winer & Chris Webber from Vegas (above).
As Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel illustrates here, Kahn was actually defending Beasley.
But the most sensational sound bite is what will garner the most attention:
“He’s a very young and immature kid who smoked too much marijuana and has told me that he’s not smoking anymore,” Kahn said, “and I told him that I would trust him as long as that was the case.”
We’re guessing Kahn shared a little too much information about Beasley, stuff we’re sure Beasley didn’t want the world to hear about on a radio show, or anywhere else for that matter.
It’s too late now.
