They met because Taylor needs to sell tickets for the 2nd half of the season, so he was asking Love to play in March-April.
Short-term cash rules everyting around Papa Glen. Often to the detriment of the other aspects of franchise managment.
You're wrong. Taylor has Rubio to sell tickets and it's not hard to see why. As you might have noticed Love fell out of favor with alot of fans. So I think the meeting was more to clear the air and to see if Love may want to change address. So far he said that he wants to stick around for now.
You're out of the loop, they are doubling/tripling the rate for season tickets, while the product is still losses and no playoffs, plus the arena is half-empty all the time.
Rubio alone is not enough for that and Glen is desperate.
And nobody is talking about those idiots still mad at Love, I'm talking about people who go to games.
First, though, Taylor said, the Wolves (19-31 at the all-star break) have to get through this season.
"And see how it goes," he said.
Taylor told Love that it's important for the owner to find out, "at some point in time," if he can play toward the end of the season.
"Because that will give us some information," he said.
Love, a two-time all-star, hasn't played since fracturing his right hand Jan. 3 in Denver.
Taylor said his chat with Love "wasn't any big secret. We just talked about things. My concern is how is he coming, getting ready, his physical shape. He says he's doing all those things and I really believe him. He's hopeful (to return by) mid-March. It's up to the doctor, the trainers, how well he feels. I think it's important that we communicate."
