The idea of Kevin Love playing for the World Champion San Antonio Spurs seems extremely unlikely and it is, but the Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star decided to ruffle a few feathers recently when he playfully suggested that he’d like to join their franchise.
Love, who has yet to experience postseason play was in Manila as a special guest of the Master Game Face All-Star Basketball Challenge recently and although he wouldn’t talk about trade rumors specifically, he was asked when he thinks he’ll eventually get to play in and win an NBA Finals matchup.
The three-time All-Star quickly suggested that he’d like to try and make the playoffs first, though, suggested life would be a lot easier if he could just team up with the Spurs.
“Ooh, that’s tough to say. (First) I would have to crack the playoffs. I’ve been coached by some great coaches and been with young teams.”
“If there’s a way I can jump on that Spurs roster then I can get on that road to the NBA championship. Hopefully it becomes soon, I’m 25 now, maybe when I’m 26.”
Oh, Kevin Love. Commence an internet explosion, if such was to happen.
Of course, the Spurs don’t have any of the necessary players and/or draft picks that the Minnesota Timberwolves would require in a trade and a multi-team deal would appear out of the question for the same reasoning, so it’s nothing more than a pipe dream – something Love seems rather aware of himself.
Still, the fact Kevin Love even said something should have the internet set ablaze, especially given that whole free agent thing after the upcoming season…
