Kevin Love - Continues to Bitch and Moan


1) Here is an idea, Kevin, how about creating a POSITIVE atmosphere around your team, not one based upon how no one loves you or appreciates how great you are?

And you are making 7 figures and letting your team down by missing games because you are mysteriously "hurt" - is that really the right time to be bitching?  When you are drawing a huge paycheck for nothing?

2) Can you identify any player in the NBA who has been LESS successful in wins and losses who purports to be a "great" player?  I cannot.  TMac comes to mind, but McGrady made the playoffs like 7 or 8 straight years.  Love's personal success teamed with terrible team results reminds one of names like Sharif Abdur-Rahim and World B. Free. 

3) You think you and Al Jefferson could play effectively together?  Yes, if the other three guys on the court are a young Andre Kirilenko, a young Michael Jordan and a young Alvin Robertson.  Then that team would give up maybe only 110 points a night.

4) Speaking of defense, Kevin, what exactly is your defensive strategy?  Step to the side?  Call for help?  Hold your hands out and point to a teammate?

If in 3 years the Wolves are winning 55 games, Love would be insane to leave.  If in 3 years the Wolves are not winning 55 games, then Love has not translated into wins and we should let him leave.

As Colonel Nathan Jessup once said, "Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to."
