Cavs Topple Wolves. Time for a Checkup.

A status check of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

CBSsports.com's Eye On Basketball NBA Elite 100

Kevin Love comes in at number 8. "It starts with the rebounding, of course. He's either the first- or second-best overall rebounder in the game (depending on how you feel about Dwight Howard), and he's the best offensive rebounder. But the development last season that helped launch Love into MVP contention was his transformed body and improved overall offensive game. Shedding weight and improving his quickness, Love was used all over the court by new coach Rick Adelman, who replaced Kurt Rambis. Encouraged to bomb away from deep, Love attempted more than five 3-pointers a game, knocking down 37.2 percent. Those are astonishing numbers for a 6-foot-10 player best known previously for banging in the paint. But Love didn't go soft here. Instead, he got to the free throw line a career-high 8.4 times per game, good for second in the league behind Howard. The difference: Love knocked down 82.4 percent of his shots compared to Howard's 49.1 percent, making him a late-game weapon from the stripe rather than a Hack-a-Love liability."

Would you trade Kevin Love for James Harden and Serge Ibaka?

It has bee said that keeping both James Harden and Serge Ibaka would be a cash burden for the Oklahoma City Thunder and coincidentally, Kevin Love is getting impatient with the wolves. If OKC decides to trade either/both Harden or/and Ibaka, would you be wiiling to swoop in and offer a package centered around Kevin Love?

Kevin Love losing patience with Timberwolves' losing, wants roster upgraded

I think it's safe to say that Love and the fanbase are on the exact same page. I also think Love did a great job being diplomatic during the interview while still getting his point across.

Kevin Love for MVP?

A worthy discussion here...
