Kevin has a short memory, forgetting where the "misconception" came from. That said, getting him back with the right attitude is greatly needed to lead our Timberpuppies.

Get rid of him. He can't carry a team and his bloated contract will drag them like an anchor for years.

KLove's absence and the Wolves struggles since then, should solidify his importance to the success of the Wolves to any intelligent person. In other words, anyone with half a brain can see that the Wolves need Kevin Love to be successful. Kevin Love is an excellent basketball player and a great competitor. Even though the Wolves have struggled, I thought they looked better last night in their loss to the best team in basketball. Even though Duncan and Manu were watching from the sidelines. Go Wolves! Let the struggle to get better continue. Congrats to Rubio for his invite to the All-Star week-end.

Still say Pau Gasol would fit in great with this team...wish there was a way to make that happen, but, with his huge contract it would be difficult to manipulate without giving away players the Wolves need to keep.

The guy punched a wall. Everybody knows it. Time to call a spade a spade.

"I don't know where the misconception came along..." LOL seriously? Oh well, at least this is a sign that he's putting the focus on getting healthy and helping the team win instead of mindlessly stirring the pot.

Kevin - I hope, and it sounds like it, you've had a long chance to reevaluate your career. At the pace you are on, you could be a hall of famer after you retire. You're a great player. However, please don't be remembered as a critic and complainer. Keep playing the game hard and give us hungry for a winner fans some fun in the coming years. There are a lot of good pieces to your team that are in place including a great coach. We are lucky to have you on this team and a part of the community and the great volunteer work that you do.

I agree with Josh. Love had the classic puncher's break of the hand. This doesn't happen from doing "knuckle pushups". I should know being a former hot head and also named Kevin, I have broken both hands from hitting walls and car windows. My only fame resulting in this is that they used my X-rays at the Orthopedic Surgeon's office for examples of what these breaks look like.

Punched a wall ? Offer proof or can the conspiracy theories.

Get rid of the best stretch forward in the NBA?! That would be classic TWolves, meaning that's the dumbest idea I've ever heard. The Wolves were headed to the playoffs with this roster, if they were all healthy. I believe next year they will make it, so long as they resign Pek and get healthy years from Love, Rubio, AK and Budinger. Roy is a wild card, he's likely done, but he would look good backing up Budinger at the 2, where I hope he starts next year.
