There are times when teams simply fail to put a winner around a player and the time comes for a change. Often times, these moves are frustrating for fans. Toronto fans, for instance, saw Vince Carter intentionally tanked his performance on the court to force a trade (or at least that is what many believe, and for good reason). This left the Raptors with no leverage to bring back any actual talent, and it was just after watching McGrady bolt in free agency. LBJ: Left in free agency so his team got nothing back.
But Love seems to have gone a different route. He let the team know that he did not plan on staying, and so gave them plenty of time to make a trade that helped the team and landed them a potential franchise player (who may even turn out to be better than Love), while also accommodating his desire to be in a winning team. It seems like the two sides were equally frustrated and came to a resolution that makes both happy.
And in all fairness, the T-Wolves did a $#!T job in the draft. They passed on Kanter and Tristan for Derrick Williams (though there wasn't a lot to pick from in that draft), they grabbed Wesley Johnson over DMC and Greg Monroe, and Luke Babbit over Eric Bledsoe in the same draft. Then they picked Rudio and Johny FLynn (two point guards) over Stephen Curry and DeMarDeRozen, though I understand the Rubio pick as every GM was high on him, but FLynn over Curry? Dude's not even in the league any more. This is a team that could have had Curry, DeRozen, Love and DMC or Monroe, and instead had Love, Johnny Flynn, Rudio, Derrick Williams and Wesley Johnson. As a player, you have to be frustrated to see that much potential slip through your fingers.
So should Minny fans be upset like TO fans were, or Cleveland fans were? Or should they be grateful that Love handled this in a manner that allowed the team to move forward instead of back?
