Kevin Love Losing Patience w/ T-wolves

Just wanted to get our minds off the Bulls spectacular off-season and start looking ahead to the next superstar on the market. Kevin Love has become pretty vocal about his unhappiness with Minnesota management.

A Marc Spears (Yahoo Sports) article details Love's increasing impatience with T-Wolves management. Some choice quotes -

"My patience is not high," Love 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.

"If we don’t make the playoffs, I don’t know it’s going to be me or something, but our management needs to step up and make some moves," Love said. "Chase is good for us. Brandon if he can come in relatively healthy and be back to somewhat of where he was … we can be pretty damn good, especially in the fourth quarter with how he used to be [with the Trail Blazers] with LaMarcus [Aldridge] in the pick-and-roll. If Ricky can come back healthy that would be great.''

So there it is. Love is throwing down the gauntlet for the T-Wolves. He just signed an extension (which makes his threats rather hollow) but maybe he can pull a Deron Williams and talk his way out of town. A couple of points for Bulls fans -

1. This is one reason why I think the Bulls should resign Asik. They are unlikely to be under the cap without sacrificing tons of talent. Melo and Dwill were moved by trade; I think that is the best chance to get a superstar in the future. Through trade, not free agency. And no, I don't think the Bulls can trade Asik for Love. But maybe in a year or two you can trade Noah/Taj/charlotte pick for Love and than actually have something on your team that would make him believe he is coming to a great situation (besides Rose).

2. Perception matters. We aren't dealing with brain surgeons; these guys aren't sitting down and commending the Bulls for their fiscal responsibility and ability to play the market. The hard hat and lunch pail image may work on the blue collar pretensions of Chicago fans, but these guys are about flash. They want to see a front office willing to make moves to compete. Deron Williams decided to stay with the Nets b/c they traded for the worse contract in the NBA. Howard wants to play for the billionaire russian. Perception matters.
