David Kahn, president of basketball operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves, successfully opened up significant cap space this morning by chipping away the toothpaste that had dried inside the cap of his tube of Crest. "It took me a few hours, but I think I will be able to screw the cap back on now," Kahn said. "I had toothpaste all over the sink. The next project is to figure out how to get all of this toothpaste off my sink. I think I might try to light it on fire." Kahn took the day off to work on his toothpaste problem, missing a call at the office from Lebron James about signing with the Timberwolves.
