While it would not be shocking news to hear that a player isn't happy with a small franchise that hasn't been successful for a very long time, Love's problem with the Wolves is not a typical case of superstaritis where the player practically runs the team and still creates problems. Shockingly, it's the opposite. Love's talent and status has always been downplayed or doubted. He has wronged those who thought he wouldn't give enough. Yet he was smugly refused to right to become Minnesota's franchise player: no max contract. To top that, this is what the team owner had to say about him: "I don't think Kevin Love is a star, because he hasn't led us to the playoffs." Are you not insulted? Well, there's more: Perhaps those issues wouldn't still be so raw had the franchise responded differently when Love broke his hand in a preseason workout.

Starters Offense:      Defense:      Overall: He played 52 minutes, which is a LOT.  The 16 points and 15 assists is awesome.  The jumpers that he was nailing were spectacular.  Defensively, he tailed off towards the end of the game.  But then he turned...

All Star Voting First Returns Are In

O.J. Mayo: ‘Would’ve been an honor to play’ for C's

Last season a trade that would have brought O.J. Mayo to Boston for Judas Shuttlesworth was basically squashed because Mayo claimed that he “doesn’t care about Boston’s banners.” After last night’s double overtime loss Mayo backpedaled faster than Rondo getting back on D, claiming that the accusation wasn’t true and he had no say in the matter due to lack of veto power...

Where are Rondo’s assists going?

Rajon Rondo is the league’s leading assist man… averaging 12.9 a game so far.  He’s dished 232 dimes going into tonight’s game, and I figured it’d be fun to look at who he’s finding the most so far this season.  Here’s the list: Garnett: 58 Pierce: 49 Jason Terry: 31 Bass: 28 Chris Wilcox: 22 Jeff Green: 15 Jared Sullinger: 15 Courtney Lee: 12 Leandro Barbosa: 2...
