Kevin Love has a lot in common with his Team USA teammates. He's an NBA All-Star. He's routinely featured on SportsCenter. He's super talented. But, one thing he doesn't share with his Olympic teammates is playoff appearances. He's the only player on Team USA who has never played in a single NBA playoff game. And, during an interview with Yahoo! Sports yesterday, he let it be known that he's not happy about that.
"My patience is not high," he 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."
Wait, so does that mean he's already upset with the four-year, $62 million contract extension you signed earlier this year? Er, sort of.
"At this point, I'm not afraid to go on the record," he said. "I want to win. All the players on the Timberwolves feel the same way as well. The coaching staff is awesome. They want to win and win now. Hopefully, we can make some stuff happen."
C'mon, Kev. The T'Wolves just traded for Chase Budinger and signed Brandon Roy! Gosh. What more do you want?!
