He takes a vastly different approach than most, and the way he talks and represents himself and his team aren't good, but he does work very hard. I believe his work has lead to many great things involving this team. I wouldn't be surprised if many of his "Kahnisms" are by design. There is probably much less heat on guys like Love when Kahn is such an easy target. It takes distraction away from the team (out of the locker room, at least).
Most Basketball personalities are ego-maniacs; some are more vocal (naturally). Kahn wanted his stamp on this team. That would've been much easier if he booted all the guys McHale drafted (which he did sans Love and Pek). If Love wasn't an incredible basketball player, I believe Kahn would've traded him as well to have his "clean slate" to be judged on.
Kahn has been a "yes man" for Glen Taylor and every coach during his time here. I don't like how the argument is used that everything positive is Adelmans doing alone, yet all of the Rambis screw-ups were a joint effort. The yes man personality is really bothersome to some fans, which is fine, but you can't argue that it's not a decent business mantra (albeit a sleazy one).
So, in your first paragraph, you are saying that Kahn is a selfless scapegoat, who purposefully plays "dumb and incompetent" to take pressure of Love and other people in organisation.
In your second paragraph, you are saying that, like the most basketball personalities, he is an ego-maniac, who wanted to leave his stamp on the team and that's why he was so dissmissive of Love.
In your third paragraph, you are saying that Kahn is a "yes man", who only does what a coach tels him to do.
You've managed to contradict your 1st point with your 2nd and your 2nd point with the 3rd. That's impressive.
Bro, do you even logic?
