Kevin Love Says He is Losing Patience With the Timberwolves Losing
Not sure what Kevin Love is complaining about no one forced him to sign an extension with the T Wolves, but now that he is out hanging with Team USA he is feeling himself.
“My patience is not high,” Love said. “Would yours be, especially when I‘m a big proponent of greatness surrounding itself with greatness? All these [Team USA] guys seem to have great players around them.
Love will begin his four-year, $62 million contract extension this season, but the deal allows him to opt out after three years. He sought a maximum five-year extension in negotiations before last season, but T’wolves officials balked. Another losing season could change his desire to stay with the franchise long-term.
“At this point, I’m not afraid to go on the record,” Love said. “Being around these [USA] guys, they know the situation I’m in and how competitive I am. I want to win. All the players on the Timberwolves feel the same way, as well. The coaching staff is awesome. They want to win and win now. Hopefully, we can make some stuff happen.
“I would say it’s coming down to it for sure [next season]. It’s no secret I was willing to commit to Minnesota for five years. I’m very happy with my contract. I’d love to be in Minnesota. But like anybody else, I want to win.”
Greatness surrounded by greatness?
I am sorry I laughed at that, someone has been in Kevin Love’s ear, probably making fun of him and now he is acting like a mini Dwight Howard.
