David Kahn thinks Darko is "Manna from heaven"

This is too easy. It really is. I could spend 250-500 words describing all the absolutely ridiculous content in the video below. I could talk about the insanity of comparing Vlade Divac, one of the greatest big men with touch in the league to Darko Milicic, a stone with two legs. I could talk about comparing Chris Webber's storied career to Darko's which is storied in the annals of draft busts. I could point out what Tom Haberstroh of HoopData.com did this morning, which is the unbelievable gap in assist percentage between Vlade/Webber and Darko. But really, the video tells the best story all by itself.

Highlights:

  • Darko Milicic is "Manna from heaven." 
  • Darko can pass "like Vlade"
  • Webber: "Vlade Divac?"
  • Darko's career similar to Chris Webber.
  • Chris Webber: Darko's career not similar to Chris Webber.
  • Webber: "Good luck"

David Kahn thinks Darko is "Manna from heaven"

Ya gotta love Chris Webber...  He matched Lloyd Bentsen in the VEEP debate in 1988, when he told Dan Quayle,

"I knew Jack Kennedy.  I served in The Senate with Jack Kennedy.  And you, sir, are no Jack Kennedy..."

Just change the names:

"I know Vade Divac.  I played next to Vlade Divac.  And I must tell you, sir, Darko Milicic is no Vlade Divac..."

Juwan Howard may be the last Fab Fiver playing in the NBA, but CWebb (like Jalen Rose) is finding a fine new niche in the media.

I'm with the first two posters, emphatically. This guy Kahn seems like a nice dude, but when it comes to making basketball decisions, he's proven to be an absolute tool. Darko couldn't get on the floor in Memphis, which speaks volumes, and I nearly fell out of my chair when I heard Kahn say that with the Knicks "D'Antoni, for whatever reason, chose not to play him". For whatever reason! The reason is that he SUCKS MONKEY BALLS! It ain't rocket science, Dave! And you signed on for 4 years and 20 million? Of course, I shouldn't be surprised. By the time I'm done writing this, Kahn will have spent another first round pick on a 12 year old point guard from Uzbekistan or something equally absurd. Darko is only like "manna from Heaven" if "manna from Heaven" actually means "a steaming pile of soiled adult diapers."

That was an utter embarrassment. Even on a roster like Minnesota's Darko Milicic is going to be hard-pressed to earn playing time. Kevin Love allows them flexibility. Minnesota isn't going to put a guy on the floor just because he's 7 feet tall. The dude is gonna have to develop his game. If David Kahn actually believes that Darko is anything more than a stand-in center while the T-Wolves rebuild then there's a magnificent chance that he'll be out of a job by 2012.

That was possibly the most laughable comparison of all time. He took two fantastic NBA players and compared them to an absolute bust. I think his career is more comparable to Kwame Brown or Michael Olowakandi.....
