Timberwolves: J.J. Barea, Kevin Love Rift Puts Rick Adelman On Heat Seat

Kevin Love

Greg Smith – USA TODAY Sports

Like it or not, the Minnesota Timberwolves are an underachieving team. With a boatload of talent and great balance throughout the roster, Minnesota really has no excuse to be 18-18 on the year. In fact, the Timberwovles have enough spare parts to go on a eight or 10-game winning streak and get themselves right back in the thick of things in terms of the postseason.

With that being said, the NBA season is starting to hit that stretch when the pretenders of the league start to drop out and the contenders begin their rise to the top. The jury is still out on this Rick Adelman-led team as the Timberwovles are no longer the “little engine that could” meaning this team is running out of time to produce.

J.J. Barea and Kevin Love made the national spotlight earlier in the week as Love called his point guard out in a postgame interview that his frustrations of a mediocre season finally hit the forefront. Here’s what Love had to say about Barea and another teammate being rather disengaged on the bench:

“We all need to be in this together. That kind of pisses me off. We’re supposed to be a team.”

Sure, Love has the right to be upset about over his teammates’ laziness, but the power forward is a tad out of his league. Moreover, Adelman is the one that needs to be getting drilled for the T-Wolves inconsisent 2013-14 campaign. And as time goes by, I fully expect Adelman’s seat to get warmer by the day.

It's great to see Kyrie Irving back healthy and playing at an elite level once again. This evening against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Irving put veteran SF Tayshaun Prince on skates with this devastating crossover, and followed the amazing move by nailing the three like a boss. People have said some crazy things about the Cleveland Cavaliers since they were ransacked by the Golden State Warriors at home recently, but don't be surprised when they're looking like they have a shot to win a ring by the end of the season.
