08:08 AM ET 12.13 | Kevin Love had a rough night on Wednesday, submitting an ugly 3-for-17 shooting performance that led to a somewhat odd scene. [Love] had to deal with trash-talking from fans at Target Center who didn't appreciate his critical comments about the Wolves organization, team owner Glen Taylor and club president of basketball operations David Kahn. As Love struggled during the Wolves' 108-105 victory, he admitted that he heard some heckling. ... Love heard the normal cheers among the crowd of 16,444 during introductions of the starting lineups, but there were moments during the game in which Love had to maintain his focus after hearing choice words from fans.

After all the Lakers did it. They should have changed their name to Oceaners.

Exactly! No problem with Love from my POV and im sure the vast majority of fans. Im a wolves fan and i agree with his statements on management. Taylor and Kahn are hacks. Neither know hoops. Kahn hasnt gotten an extension yet (great thing) and Taylor is selling the team (beyond great thing). Love has to understand though that reporters can include/exclude any part of an interview for a piece that they want to. The reporter never mentioned anything positive (positivity doesnt sell), even though the reported acknowledged in a tweet late that Love had said many positive things about the organization and fans. The team is as of now the 7th seed. Dang, enjoy it! Just keep winning!

Tell you what. Give us our name back and we will give you ours. Probably more wolves in LA than lakes anyways. Well...werewolves at least.

why should it be KD when he's not even the best player on his team currently? Have you seen RW this year and what he's doing?

KD is the best player on that team. Russell will either help or hurt you. KD makes his team better.

QUOTE(#7):

Carmelo Anthony's numbers support his consideration for MVP but the season is long and the critics fickle. As of now the MVP should be Kevin Durant's to lose. He is so much more clutch than Anthony and is a model citizen to boot.

I think what separates the two is that KD defense has really improved and has Russell under control. Both teams can win without their star but if we are comparing improvement, NY has really become an all around team. Its going to come down to KD or Melo for M.V.P

Love is not getting Love in Minny.
