08:08 AM ET 07.20 | Kevin Love may be undervalued to open the Olympic Games, but he's still a key to the future of the Timberwolves, no matter how unsettling that may be. [Love] is glad he negotiated the option to leave Minnesota as a free agent in three years instead of securing a maximum five-year contract, demanding again that management invest in a playoff-contending team before he commits long term to the franchise. Love also was pleased to see "bad blood" purged from the locker room. ... Asked to elaborate, Love responded: "Just what I said. We had bad blood in the locker room. We got that out." Forwards Michael Beasley and Anthony Randolph, guard Martell Webster and center Darko Milicic were the most notable players Minnesota jettisoned this offseason.

Nothing wrong with calling them out. I really like Kevin Love's game and I want to see this dude in the playoffs.

If you can't see that he's talking about Beasley you're blind. So much talent wasted

Apparently Minnesota wants to ship Love for Howard. Heard that Howard says he wants to play with Minny in past.

So why wait til they're gone? Kind of a chump move to do it now...not saying he should have started locker room issues during last season but IF he wants to be the leader of the team (as his contract indicates) then he cant worry about being mr nice guy. I'm all FOR guys calling out other teammates when its deserved. All the greats have done it, you cant let "bad blood" fester inside ur team

Beasley is in the class of Marvin Williams, #2 overall pick who hasn't emerged in the NBA yet. Marvin has a new team in Utah, hoping this will be the spark/change he needs. Glad that I can stop supporting the Hawks. As far as Beasley, he appears to have a problem w/ smoking pot.
