I guess I don't understand why he would be so down if the xrays were negative.


Perhaps he'll miss a couple games? Any kind of sprain can linger indefinitely, especially when it is an opposable joint like the thumb. It is really easy to keep spraining it, and it looked like a particularly nasty sprain to begin with. But I get what you're saying. Perhaps he's just frustrated that he just came back from a broken hand to re-injure the same hand so soon?

I've been watching some Rubio footage from last year. One of the things I've noticed especially playing with Love is that he delivers the ball to the exact place it needs to be. While watching some attempts tonight, when Love spots up and gets the pass, he is having to reach left or right to get the ball, which messes up timing. Not using this as an excuse for his entirety of poor play, but it could be something subtle like that when Rubio returns (tomorrow?!) that can make a difference in Kevin's play.

Just dropped by to say you guys are my favorite team to watch this year.

Any team coached by Rick is on default that, but really with the addition of AK47, you guys are just spectacular in the half-court offense and in general. Just amazing stuff.

The movement, the passing, the ridiculously high IQ in the game and the simplicity of it all - Awesome stuff.

Andrei is probably the guy I enjoy watching the most in the entire league - the man just understands the game and makes it so simple, plays so quick yet really within himself - and don't get me started defensively.. what magnificent player and coup for you guys.

I can only be sad the Kings didn't grab him when we had a chance the last 2 years - but on the other hand if I ever wanted to see him play for anyone, it's under Rick.

Can't wait for Rubio's return.

This. It's just another little set back for him when he was already struggling with form and fitness and he's probably had to read a bit of hate mail in the last week.

Good win, but if we have any more injuries I'm going to break down! Particularly if it's to one of Pek, AK, Shved or Rubio.

Because he's not a team player?

I'd be more concerned if he wasn't down actually.

Thanks man. If only they could get healthy. :( Hopefully you won't have to wait another day for Ricky's return.

Luke had a good game and a couple really nice passes. The two long rests in the past few weeks must have really helped his back.

i'm craving waffles right now - you know when the hot maple syrup starts mixing with the butter and its like melted gold seeping into the crevices of that glorious grid-shaped pancake and you're like "my compliments to the chef!"

Everytime I go to the thrift store I see waffle irons and I figure "nah, how often would I ever use it..." and I pass on what seems like a frivolous purchase, but now, BIG mistake.
I have syrup, I have flour, I have butter, and I have zero waffle manufacturing infrastructure in place to take advantage of the situation.

My point is I totally get how Kevin Love is feeling right now.

He is playing poorly, he is hurt again but it could have been worse, and he deserves the hate. If anything he should be down about playing like crap, not that he has what seems to be a minor injury in which it could have been worse.

He's had two of his worst games since the interview came out. There's a legitimate chance the backlash is affecting him

Good, hopefully he will stop speaking or speak better about his team, and realize how good his team is and play better.
