Seems like it is all about Kevin. You got guys busting tail this year and hes to busy complaining about a 60 million dollar contract. That whole knuckle push up thing was a lie from the start too!

Has really been a breakout year for Pek, have enjoyed watching him find his groove.

What's the conspiracy now? Kevin Love enjoys having surgery? You think he's tanking it to miss out on the final 6 games? Ridiculous postings. It was a lost season for him and the team. The team has fought back through all the adversity and will be stronger next season. They need to seal the deal with Pek and draft a player that can play right away and hit from the outside. It should be a fun season next year.

Why wait until April for this ridiculous news? Why. The guy could have been scoped in January. Nothing on this team makes sense. Without Adelman they are a 10 win season.

After taking the Wolves for a full salary this year and producing nothing, this slug owes to his team, owners and city to produce in a big way next year. I get the feeling that he doesn't even want to be here. As much as I disliked OJ Simpson, he at least played his heart out in a crappy city like Buffalo and didn't bitch about it.

After seeing KLove break his hand on a wall, and then sit the season out, all the while complaining about the team, no, I don't think he feels too bad about missing it.

So what did Kevin pull in this year for sitting around most of the season? 10-12,000,000??? So annoying how pro sports athletes have such short memories... Pro sports owners are really stupid.

Who should T-wolves draft or trade for, next season? What are options to improve team for next year? I'm curious what people think

Love is a perfect example of why football does contracts right - low guarantees unless you're performing on the field.

Trade him now for some help on the perimter and roll with Derrick Williams as your 4. If AK47 re-ups you can afford to play Williams at the 4 cause AK makes up for some length. While KLove is injury prone he still holds some pretty high trade value around the A. You might only get 75 cents on the dollar for him but a young wing (Harrison Barnes)or and another veteran wing is what this team needs. Use your draft pick this year with KLove and see what you can get. Ridnour is nothing more than a backup and Schved while promising needs to hit the weight room.
