So That’s How David Kahn Treats His Players

Updated: December 27, 2009

Foye started feeling uneasy when David Kahn refused to meet with him after taking over general manager, but he still was startled to get the call from agent and Ernie Grunfeld that he was headed to Washington in a multiplayer deal.

I don’t know David Kahn personally, but I do know this doesn’t sound good. Even worse when you consider that Randy Foye first learned of his trade to Washington via HoopsHype.

I understand professional basketball of the NBA is a business, but that shouldn’t cast aside the common courtesy of rational, reasonable, and humane behavior toward a fellow employee when changing cities and potentially moving family is concerned.

In fact, this sounds downright cowardly of Mr. Kahn.

So… that’s how he treats his players.

    I know this is “just a blog” – but some very shoody journalism by this blogger. Disappointing.

  • Please, do embellish upon your accusations.

    I’m neither misreporting or misrepresenting facts.

    I merely supplied my opinion, commentary on a report made by Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

    I’m entitled to do so without venturing into what you call “shoddy” territory. There’s also a bit of satire here that you might not comprehend.

    Would you like to shed a positive light on how Kahn treated Foye? Then go ahead.

    David Kahn is from Portland and has done a wonderful job there in trying to get a MLB team. This is his first year with the Timber Wolves, he is much better than McHale in running the T-Wolves. Quit trying to start something from nothing!

  • Look, I’m not saying the guy hasn’t done some good things in sports, or even thae he hasn’t been nice on several occasions in his life.

    My point is that the way he treated Randy Foye was kind of shitty. Maybe he doesn’t treat everyone that way, but one in such a manner is enough for me to offer my opinion.

    Anyone else?

    Amen brotha’… at my job, we throw going away parties and focus on what the individual did for the company in their tenure here when people switch sites.
