No Respect for the Mad Dog


Via his blog, Mark Madsen has a story about the Rook who busted his chin:

Yes, this was the first time that I got to meet Kevin Love.  The man who used to terrorize my Stanford Cardinal basketball team in his one year at UCLA.  Well, on the last play of the day, Kevin Love went up for a dunk.   I tried to block it and the next thing I knew I was making two unexpected trips after practice. 

1) To team physician Sheldon Burns (he is also the USA Basketball head physician) to get 12 stitches in my chin,

2) To visit Matthew Alm of Brookside Dental (Minneapolis), to get my front tooth popped back into place.

Mad Dog also compares Love to Shaq and *gasp* Oliver Miller. Don't worry, it's about passing, not consumption.

Between Al's knee, Collins' elbow, Carney's hamstring and Madsen's chin, the Wolves have already had a pretty rough offseason in the injury department. Good thing they've been practicing together pre-training camp.
