Neither. For how many times the T-Wolves have been in the lottery, they should have made out lot better than they have. Flynn and Johnson were huge busts. The only thing Kahn gets credit for is taking Rubio, but that was really a no-brainer. Morey is vastly overrated. The Artest trade was nice, but thats really it. The guys collect 1st round picks and uses them on tweener forwards, trades for busts (Thabeet, Flynn, Hill,) and has absolutely mangled this offeseason. They have no point guard, 8 power forwards, and are about to overpay a Asik when they are nowhere close to contending.

I'd give the slightest edge possible to Kahn (and I ****ing hate Kahn) solely because he gave us Rubio.

Only reason people thought Morey was some genius and Kahn was trash was Bill Simmons. Making fun of the Wolves for having three point guards; like every other team in the NBA. Btw, they still have with Rubio, Ridnour and Barea.

Until we figure out what the bleep is going on with the Rockets, I think you'd have to go with David Kahn. The Wolves look like they're headed in the right direction while the Rockets seem to be looking around in every direction, wondering what's going on.

Bullshit. He had critics, but he also fit into what Kahn wanted to do and would put asses into the seats. The T-Wolves have a nice core, but should have been a playoff by now.

We would of been last year if not for the Rubio injury. Kahn blows ass though. whiffed on 2/3 high lottery picks and so far the 4th isn't looking very good.

Pretty much. Pekovic is a nice player though, so it helps make up for not taking Cousins. But I didn't get the Flynn pick at all.

Right now, I'm going with the Wrath of Kahn.

Rubio was a great move, Pekovic could turn out to be genius.
The Wolves have a solid 4 starting with Rubio, Love, Pekovic and Williams. If Batum comes there, then that is a very competitive team.

Houston has tons of young players and hopefully if some of them pan out, they will have a new core. But Houston is definitely a work in progress.

Kahn because he's willing to take risks.

I really dont like his stlye because you can tell he's a pure scumbag. He wouldn't know about goodwill even if he was in front of the store itself.

This vulture sits around and eats up other GM's scraps in hopes of finding a gem, he's an opportunist. Beasley for two 2nd rounders at a time when Miami was at its weakest bargaining position, former superstar Roy on a 2 year deal, insisting on stealing Anthony Randolph from the Knicks for taking on Eddy Curry's PREPAID contract from his mentor Donnie Walsh.

Wouldn't be surprised if the guy has zero friends in the league though

Is this a joke? Clearly Morey. Kahn has some of the worst high draft picks ever (Flynn, Williams, Wesley Johnson), and Morey finds gems in the 2nd round (Budinger, Parsons, Landry).

Morey finally turned his assets into a superstar (Harden) and will get a 2nd star this summer, and build towards a championship within 3-4 years.

Morey steals Kevin Martin from Kings, steals Robinson from Kings....he wins almost every trade. Signs Asik when everyone thought it was foolish. Guys playing great....

This. Rockets aren't a sexy location to land FA's like NY or LA and he isn't intentionally tanking. Morey is building a contender out of nothing while putting the best team he can on the floor every year. Asik's contract is actually not too bad at the time and great in hindsight. It's backloaded contract and can easily be traded as an expirer if Thomas turns out to be a monster rebounder (like I think he will be) or in case Asik didn't pan out. And he got Thomas for what? A tweener stretch 4 that doesn't play D? A tweener stretch 4 14th pick which he flipped for a 5th pick on said 5th pick's rookie season?
