When it’s all said and done, there’s a good chance Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves will go down as one of the greatest forwards to ever play the game considering he’s averaged a double-double in each of his last four seasons. Unfortunately for the star forward though, his frustration with the organization is beginning to build up–and he has every reason in the world to do so.
Love has been taking the heat all week for comments made about the Timberwolves organization and their inability to focus on the team’s long-term plans when it comes to bringing in star players. Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor recently called out his beloved forward for not being a “star” since he had yet to lead Minnesota to the playoffs–which Love didn’t appreciate hearing at all.
In response to the criticism, Love discussed his frustrations towards the organization bringing in new players year after year and how this was one of the main reasons why the Timberwolves have struggled to reach the postseason. When looking at other contenders across the league, most of them build their team around players they expect to be part of the plan for the next two to five years.
As for Minnesota–Love feels that has been anything but the case.
Any owner in the league would love to have a player like Love on their roster and if he continues to be unhappy in Minnesota–they may have the chance to bring him on board to their squad in a few years.
