“@DarrenWolfson: I had a great Wolves source almost spit out his water when I said Pek might be worth $12M/year. Doubt they offer him the max.”

At least this team is use to playing shorthanded and without Love but it's going to mean big minutes for guys like AK, Shved, Cunningham, and Williams (theoretically).

It means I went from optimistic about winning this game, to not so much at all

I wasn't all that optimistic to begin with but it definitely makes things more interesting. If only I trusted caged lion to go off...

we'll win this one, Ricky will play his best game of the year. He has been dreaming about playing at MSG all his life. I'm very optimistic about this one.
Let's go Wolves!!
Also about Chandler defense, i believe he is one of the most overrated players of all time, his defense sucks big time, Pek will have a new skull this sunday :) . To me, the worst DPOY election since i follow the NBA (Bird-Magic times).

Joan Neisen has quickly become one of my favorite writers. This is a good write-up of Love and his struggles:
http://www.foxsportsnorth.com/01/03/13/ ... eedID=3697
Love isn't asking anyone to feel sorry for him. He's not saying he came back too soon – his team needed him, and he was going to play as soon as possible – or making excuses. He's just been unlucky, a bit, and unwise at times, and now he's sorting it all out, as much in his mind as he is on the court.

"I feel like these guys, we forget that they're not just basketball players," Respert said. "They have personal lives. They're normal human beings. They have struggles. Sometimes at the age they're at, they don't have the maturity."

Love may make millions of dollars, may appear on TV every night in a basketball game or a commercial. But he's a 24-year-old professional, and no amount of money or exposure is going to age him in such a way that he handles his struggles like a circumspect 40-year-old. Respert, a former player, understands better than most. He understands that Love's happiness is linked to his game, that there could be other things factoring into this, too.

She and Britt Robson are the two best Wolves writers.


I like this article and it makes me think that I've been treating him a little unfairly in my criticism.


However, what the article doesn't talk about at all is Love's lack of understanding, or simply refusal, to play team ball, the whole floor long.


If he's struggling with his shot so much, shouldn't we see an uptake in assists, steals, blocks, and maybe even rebounding?

Or am I being unfair?

Interesting read with some telling stats. Pek needs to step it up on defense.

Forgot to answer Hickson question on @1500ESPN. The #Twolves have not asked about him. Told Derrick Williams is being shopped heavily.
