NBA Power Rankings: The Timberwolves Rank Among The Worst Teams In The League

The Timberwolves aren't a very good basketball team. I think everyone recognizes that. And just because they have Kevin Love in the All Star game, that doesn't really mean that are any better than we thought they were. According to the latest NBA Power Rankings over at SB Nation, the Timberwolves are the 26th best team in the NBA. Here is the quick shot they take at Kahn on the way out.

Ah, the perverse genius of David Kahn. Here's Revisionist Theory On The 2009 NBA Draft, Take 14: Kahn knew Ricky Rubio would stay in Spain and struggle, thus lowering future European demand for La Pistola. He also knew Jonny Flynn would stink, necessitating a hero's welcome for Ricky. It's all coming into shape now. It's all coming into shape.

It's true, the two point guards the Timberwolves took at the top of the NBA draft haven't really panned out. In fact, Ty Lawson, the guy they took much later in the first round and traded to the Nuggets, has been a better player than Flynn so far this year. But there is no reason to take this shot at Kahn when it isn't necessary. That's just hurtful. But at least the Timberwolves still have Kevin Love, that's a bright spot, right? RIGHT?!?!?
