Not really...that statement is representing the past and almost all the players in the past are gone.

Pretty sure Dirk took less than max so the Mavs could add depth. Also, understand that the luxury tax penalty is different now. Teams are not going to fly over the cap to win titles anymore. Certainly not teams like the T-Wolves.

Isn't their plan to be only all white NBA team? Kevin Love must obviously be color blind.

It's pretty much a ritual for him, every year he questions the direction of the team while positioning himself as sort of too good for the organization and worthy of better treatment.

Anyway if by 2015 the timberwolves can't still make the playoffs at least two years in a row might as well go again into rebuilding mode since the team isn't really making any waves with Love as the Centerpiece.

Lets keep it real here....do we all see Kevin Love being with this team a year or two from now?


I most certainly do not. TOO much talk coming from both sides...its sour.

Pretty interesting thoughts from Love throughout the entire article, even if they're not all squarely on the mark.

Also, the line about Glen Taylor saying Love was not a star because he hadn't led the Wolves to the playoffs... if that line's legit, what a misguided thing for an owner to say.

What are you talking about? That completely comes across as whining. Its one thing if this wasn't the first time. Its one thing if he never whined about anything else other then the Timberwolves (had the nerve to whine about not playing time on Team USA). I can really only think of Dwight Howard as someone that has complained as much as this guy in recent past.

Well, to each their own I suppose. He seems up front and straightforward when I read some of his quotes. For instance, on Team USA, he didn't speak in code or cliche or with vague reference. Instead, he said:
Quote:
“Obviously I’d like to go out there and be playing with these guys, I really feel like I can help. I know my abilities and know what I’m capable of,” Love said Monday. “You know, Coach K and I have talked about it — this isn’t 2010. I obviously played more in 2010, but I’m a completely different player now and a far better player. So we’ll wait and see what happens. I worked into my playing time in 2010, and hopefully that’ll happen here. I just need to find a way to get into a rhythm in limited minutes, which is tough.”
I see that as someone who wants something he's not getting, but I do not believe that means anything he says about it must be whining. All of that felt correct. He really did feel like he could help. He really did know his abilities. He and Coach K did talk about it. He was better than he was in 2010. And it really is tough to get into a rhythm in limited minutes. I thought it was a completely well-rounded response.

I'm okay with people voicing their opinions, positive or otherwise, as long as they're conducted in a semi-normal manner, and that's what I was getting at with Love. He wasn't pulling publicity stunts, he wasn't doing pushups in his driveway, he wasn't rocking a pair of blue blockers while conducting a brash nationally televised interview on ESPN's Up Close with Roy Firestone. He just gave a measured (albeit non-positive) response. He doesn't like the idea of his team's owner belittling his abilities just because his ever-changing team does not contribute enough to reach the playoffs. I can see where that'd rub someone the wrong way.

Love is a malcontent whining bitch. Play your ass of and don't worry about help. Kobe has help and look at how mediocre his team is.
