In a recent newspaper ad the Timberwolves front office took out a full-page ad in the monday edition of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Only David Kahn would find humor in all the awful moves he’s made since he’s taken over and admit to the Timberwolve faithful they’re not going to contend this upcoming season.
Here’s the full ad:
The time for talk is over
Okay, not quite. Right after this long-winded letter. Because we do have a lot of good things to talk about.
In the off-season we added young, athletic wind players Wesley Johnson, Martell Webster and Lazar Hayward. They join Jonny Flynn, Corey Brewer and Wayne Ellington as guys who can get up and down the floo quickly and shoot the ball from the perimeter. We re-signed Darko Milicic and added Nikola Pekovic, giving us two more up-tempo big men to run with one of the best outlet passers in the game, Kevin Love. We took advantage of our cap room to acquire a potential star in Michael Beasley, who was the number one prospect in his high school class of 2007 and averaged 26 points and 12 rebounds in his one college season. And finally, we added Luke Ridnour, a push-the-pace player who becomes the team’s elder statesman at the age of 29.
So will we challenge for the NBA championship this year?
Ouch. This honesty thing is a bit painful. But the reality is, we still need that one dominant player.
Enough talk. It’s time to play.
Oh, wait. We forgot to talk about Rubio.
All I can say is at least Kahn is nowhere near our organization.
