Kevin Love is a great basketball player. He’s talented offensively and a monster on the boards. That said, he’s also becoming whiny. He’s whined in the past about the Minnesota Timberwolves not putting enough talent around him. And now he’s whining even more.
One glaring problem: He has sucked this year and the T’Wolves have been better without him. When you’re sucking, you don’t have room to whine about a lack of talent.
On the season, Love is averaging 21.2 points and 14.2 rebounds per game but he’s shooting just 38.2% from the field, 21.6% on three-pointers and 67.4% at the line.With Love in the lineup, the T’Wolves are just 4-5. Without him, they are 5-4.
At some point, Love will start playing better. But until then, stop whining and play ball.
