03:31 AM ET 12.13 | Kevin Love got himself in hot water on Tuesday when he blasted the Minnesota Timberwolves and specifically team president David Kahn for ruining the team and not giving Love a five-year, maximum contract. As usual, the press asked him if he was sorry for what he said and naturally, Love stood by his words. A day after basically saying he doesn't feel loved in Minnesota and that the Wolves are run by idiot man-children, Love wasn't about to issue a full-on apology, and opted for the back-handed one instead. Love noted that in his career so far, he has yet to play in a playoff game and has barely come close to getting that chance. Love said that had better change dramatically in the next two years or he's going to walk. And by change dramatically, he meant the Wolves play in the NBA Finals or he's out.

I think Love is one of the top power forwards in the league. In my opinion, he is pretty close to being the best pf. BUT, it times for him to stop talking and lead his team to the playoffs. If they are going to get there, it's going to be on his shoulders. They are likely to be one and done, but he should at least get them there before he starts talking again.

First of all Kahn is an idiot. If he had ANY plan, it would have been obvious by now. From recruiting PGs to SFs to not paying anyone at all, if he could, the guy has really no brain cells left.

That said, Love SHOULD be able to take this decent team (even w/o Rubio) to the playoffs. Now that he also has a above-average coach, there is simply no excuses.
Yes players are injured, but that's part of NBA. Just **** up and play.

Maybe he doesn't care if they have his back or not. He wants to be on a super team like Lebron has with Wade and Bosh. Melo with STAT, Chandler, Felton. The entire Lakers team... Memphis, Clippers... etc. Minny is definitely full of scrubs...

When are people ever going to learn that you can never unsay something stupid that you have said.......apologizing or taking it back still leaves it said.

There's no Love loss in the northwoods.
