No, they're not. They are still good even when they don't have him, however.

time for Willaims to sink or at least 30 minutes a night coach and lets see what happens for real this time.

Of course we're better with KLove, the KLove of last year and the Olympics. Kevin came back too soon. He never seemed quite right as he dove back into action , 1-3 weeks sooner than he should have. We were told he had to shoot his way back to form, and shoot he did, regularly shooting the most and missing the most. The fans aren't saying we' re better off without Love, they're saying we're better with a completely healthy Love. We haven't seen that yet this year. Get well, Kevin. We hardly knew ye.

With K Love out, Wolves need to trade for Pau Gasol. It's time. Lakers are struggling and we need him badly. Hopefully, we can keep Pekovic in the deal and a combo of Williams, Roy, Ridnour, first-round picks and Amundson would get it done.

I totally agree that KLove came back too soon last time. We are better with a fully healthy Kevin Love .. no doubt .. but not the 4 for 17 and 0 for 7 from 3 pt range KLove. Let him fully heal this time before coming back. If it takes 8 weeks then keep him out the duration. We saw what coming back too soon did to his offensive game. Work out the bugs and conditioning in practice and not game after game. We won't be able to afford him shooting 8 shots in the 4th quarter and not making any of them in March. That will kill the teams chances for winning that particular night. Hopefully the coaching staff learns from this last scenario and doesn't repeat it when Love tries to come back too soon again.

lets let derrick williams play at least 30 minutes a night to give him a chance to improve and get some experience.if anything his trade value will go up and we can get a high draft pick for him or a descent 2 guard,im tired of watching ridinour play the 2 guard spot.

Hopefully this re-break unbreaks what was broke in K-Love's shot.

Although Love's mouth and his hand are two totally separate topics (and body parts!) I'd feel more love for Love if he'd never opened his mouth with the Yahoo! interview. Unlike last year when it seemed like we had all the parts headed in the right direction, now it feels like not only a fractured hand, but a slightly fractured team as well.
