Kevin Love on Minnesota T-Wolves: ‘I hope we have a plan’

I hope we have a plan. I don’t know what it is at this point. We obviously made a lot of moves, but I’m out there playing and thinking between the lines, not making decisions. I’m just trying to hope for the best and that we keep getting better as a team.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He hasn’t earned the right. Not yet anyway.

As a third-year post known for more for twittering than on-court play, Kevin Love doesn’t have the superstar pedigree to bash Minnesota GM David Kahn.

In July, Kahn dealt Al Jefferson to the Utah Jazz, so Love could play the four-spot, his natural position. And Love repays the organization’s loyalty with criticism that appears on CNNSI’s website.

Of course, Love is also missing the point: he is The Plan. He’s the leader by default. And this is his team.

His comments will set a negative tone for current and potential teammates. After all, what will the mood be at training camp? And Spanish sensation Ricky Rubio will be even more opposed to crossing the Atlantic and joining the Wolves.

Ironically, Love wants to ink an extension with Minnesota and be part of a contending team. Perhaps he should choose his words more carefully.
