Kahn calls Chris Webber a "schmuck." Mr. Pot, meet Mr. Kettle.

david-kahn.jpgDavid Kahn is the king of unintentional comedy.

Remember back during Summer League, when Kahn sat down for an in-game interview with NBA TV and Chris Webber? And Kahn defended his signing of Darko Milicic by comparing him with Webber and asking Webber how long it took him to find his game in the NBA? That would be 17 and 9, Rookie of the Year Chris Webber. And it just got weirder from there. Ahh, good times.

That video became a bit of a sensation among basketball fans and was passed among friends at Summer League. Kahn went on ESPN 1500 Twin Cities today and this is what he said about Webber (as transcribed by the Star Tribune).

“He’s kind of a schmuck, isn’t he? Methinks that he spent a lot of time on NBA TV with a former Timberwolves person and he seemed to come into the interview with an agenda. Tough questions are fine, but I felt like was a little defensive about some of the things.”

Webber was the schmuck? Webber was defensive? Does Kahn realize which one he was in the interview? Did Kahn really use “methinks” in an interview? Wow. I bet the sky is a really pretty shade of purple in Kahn’s world. Personally, I thought Webber was pretty controlled through all of that.

Best part is, this wasn’t even the craziest thing he said in that same interview. He’s this funny, and he’s not even trying.

    jamar again you just don’t get it. Kahn was not comparing stats with Webber he was comparing number of teams he went through before he found one that he stuck with. Are you intentionally that dumb are is it a birth defect? Why would he use Webber as a point of reference?… Gee I don’t know. Maybe because that’s who he was talking too?

    Wolves fans, please don’t defend Kahn, you’re embarassing yourselves.
    The guy got fined 50,000 for his inappropriate comment about a player his team has invested in, what more proof do you need that he is a bambling fool.
    I understand he wasn’t directly correlating the two players’ careers but still, any analogy between Webber (an NBA star from day one) and Darko is utterly, totally and completely off-target no matter how you look at it. It was just a stupid thing to say.

    Again “David Kahn” doesn’t get it.

    this is Jamar responding below? Well I’d like to hear what you think about everything I wrote, not just something that is opinion.
    Personally, I think it’s embarassing how little thought or research goes into what most people say/write.
    You understand it wasn’t a skill analogy, yet you still think it’s off-target to compare the fact that Webber traveled around to a couple teams before he finally settled in? How do you figure? “No, he’s an allstar so that never happened! It was erased from the history books.” Really? That’s all you’ve got? Sounds like you are starting to realize that your opinions aren’t even close to reality. But hey, don’t let reality get in the way of the narrative, right?

    Thanks for the 2 rings!
    Even Isaiah Thomas is cringing on some of the moves kahn is making.
