07:26 AM ET 01.10 | Somewhat unsurprisingly, Kevin Love is expressing his mind, and he's not happy right now. Minnesota has a familiar issue on its hands. Facing the eternal question that confronted the Nuggets with Carmelo Anthony, the Magic with Dwight Howard, the Jazz with Deron Williams and the Cavaliers with LeBron James, the Timberwolves must at some point ask themselves the following: When do you trade a star player who doesn't want to be there? ... [Love] shares the same wanderlust for a bigger market that led to Williams' departure from Utah. He also shares the same agent, New York-based Jeff Schwartz. "They should trade him," one Eastern Conference executive said. "No one thinks he's staying. Everyone knows he wants to go to the Lakers." But not all executives agree.

Blake for Love????

January 10, 2014  08:49 AM ET

He seems to be becoming more and more of a prima donna and a guy who sounds entitled, when he's really accomplished nothing in his career so far
Not saying he stinks, he's clearly an AS level player
But he won't succeed unless there is a better player than him in his team
I would not give up the farm for him

The lakers Blake...hehehe


There's a great chance that you'll get another Kobe through the draft. Keep your hopes up unless the Lakers traded that pick away.

As long as he stays in Minnesota he can't accomplish anything. That doesn't stop him from being the best power forward in basketball. There isn't a team in the league he doesn't make better.

usually when they say something you hear it on the news he has yet to publicly say any of that so yeah stop talking.

Knicks are awaiting him with open arms....

Love Means Never Having To Say Sorry, Bro.

Clearly he's tired of losing and wants to make a pilgrimage to LA and learn how to win from the Mamba.

Love would be a great fit for Lakerland. ...If McHale was still GM in MN he'd be a Celtic...

not disagreeing-
but IMO-
he's more a guy that is that final piece to the puzzle
rather than a build around guy

Howard did. He had a list of 3 teams he narrowed down to 2 teams.
