A Kahn jobbing the media, to protect himself from himself


In light of having to pay a $50,000 fine for comments he made about one of his players’ past drug use, Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn has changed his media policy.

According to a report in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Kahn says that all interview requests will go through the team’s media-relations department and “no longer are reporters allowed to call or text him directly on his cell phone.”

You’d think someone like Kahn, who once covered basketball and other sports for the (Portland) Oregonian upon his graduation from UCLA where he was a sports editor at the Daily Bruin would have figured out media protocol by this point in his career.
