    "My patience is not high,” Love said. “Would yours be, especially when I’m a big proponent of greatness surrounding itself with greatness? … 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.”

    “I would say it’s coming down to it for sure [next season]. It’s no secret I was willing to commit to Minnesota for five years. I’m very happy with my contract. I’d love to be in Minnesota. But like anybody else, I want to win.”

    - Kevin Love via interview with SI.com



    We though we had issues with Batum, and trying to decifer exactly how he feels, and what is agent posturing.  We'll make room for you here in Portland Love.  Who needs a center when you have the 2 best power forwards in basketball?

    I love that the article you linked mentions that "Batum would rather be in Minnesota"... here in Portland, we know that opinion came from Batum's agent Ndaiye, not Nico himself, but it sickens me to think that everyone else in the NBA is gonna think the Blazers are holding on to Nico against his will.

    I hate politicking and smokescreens. This kind of garbage has no place in basketball.

    Batum's issue with Porlland is that Minnesota will pay him more $. The rest is agent speak. If we match and end up with him he will "Love Portland very very much" all the way to the bank.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
