The Timberwolves are great

The NBA Draft Lottery was on Tuesday evening, which really was a fantastic way to waste a half hour of your life. It's one of those things where you just have a stage full of dudes looking awkward and then some names of teams are read as cards are pulled from envelopes. It's a stupid process that, for some reason, is really clandestine. The Timberwolves had the best chance at finishing with the top pick, but instead they were bumped to #2. That... didn't sit well with Wolves GM David Kahn:
"This league has a habit, and I am just going to say habit, of producing some pretty incredible story lines," Kahn said. "Last year it was Abe Pollin's widow and this year it was a 14-year-old boy and the only thing we have in common is we have both been bar mitzvahed. We were done. I told Kevin: 'We're toast.' This is not happening for us and I was right."
That 14 year old boy was Cavs owner Dan Gilbert's son, who is ravaged by a chronic disease.  Kevin was the GM of the Utah Jazz, who ended up with the third pick. Awesome job, then, by David Kahn, saying that the NBA fixed the draft lottery so they wouldn't win. Equally awesome that he claimed it was fixed and the KID WITH CANCER didn't deserve to win.
Timberwolves basketball..... CATCH THE FEVER!
