Playing For Team USA Makes Kevin Love Question Staying In Minnesota
Minnesota Timberwolves superstar Kevin Love is currently practicing with Team USA in advance of the London Olympics, and the experience is making him question whether he wants to stay in the Twin Cities.
The 23-year old told Yahoo sports that his patience with the Timberwolves organization is running thin.
“My patience is not high,” Love said. “Would yours be, especially when I’m a big proponent of greatness surrounding itself with greatness? All these [Team USA] guys seem to have great players around them.
“It’s tough seeing all these guys that are young and older who have all played in the playoffs. When they start talking about that, I have nothing to talk about. If I don’t make the playoffs next year I don’t know what will happen.”
Love just finished his fourth season in Minnesota and this past season was first year they were any good. Of course, that was before Ricky Rubio blew his ACL and ruined the Wolves chances at the playoffs.
Minnesota recently extended and offer sheet to Nicolas Batum and if Rubio is healthy, they have a good chance at making the playoffs this upcoming season.
Wolves fans better hope they do. Remember what happened when Lebron, D-Wade, and Bosh played together at the Beijing Olympics?
