Amazing the positive energy Ricky brings to the team, the game, the sport and to life. We need more athletes and people in general with his passion, love, and excitement. Love his focus on bringing people together to work as a team and a focal point to rally behind.

I sit in a rocking chair when I watch the Wolves, but I don't usually rock. Tonight I was rocking rather steadily, such is the nature of Rubio's contagion. I got a good workout!

Careful... Al this praise of Rubio is just gonna make Love throw another tantrum.

This is Rubio's team. It starts and stops with him. That being said, I LOVE Kevin Love. I just hope Love doesn't repeat history...and look at it as I'm Marbury, and Rubio is KG situation. This team has everything it needs to Win for the long haul. Solid Coaching, and I must credit them for Shved / AK-47 additions. If Kevin Love is, who I think he is...he will realize that it's not about 1 & 2. It's about the whole TEAM...and it starts and stops with Rubio. PS: I must credit Kahn. I don't know if he has given the coach more input, is due.

I just dont understand Love's recent comments and the subsequent bashing of the team and ownership by media and commenters on this site. The team looks great! Expecially now with Rubio, what a night! This team is positioned to make playoff runs for years to come. Yet all the negativity this week was just astounding. Ricky is all positive energy man, and love it when he smiles when he makes a great pass. It's so refreshing to have him to off-set Love's negative vibe.

Had to listen to the game on the radio. Sounded like Rubio played a great game. Always enjoy watching him play. K Love has said in the past that he admired Larry Bird's game. It is time for Love to take a page out of Bird's arsenal think about team defense and passing for easy buckets. The game is not all about points and rebounds. Rubio, Shved, AK and Adelman have brought a team concept to the T Wolves.

All of us hard core fans have patiently waited for the team to rebuild and get back to winning ways. Kevin Love should be happy to see where they are, Keven Garnett would have loved this opportunity.
