If Love really wants out of Minny.. and really wants to win.. he'd be best to keep his mouth shut and play out the season.

If Kevin Love truly wants to leave Minnesota and truly wants to win a title, his best bet is to stay silent and play out the season in Minnesota.

Any time a star moves in a trade, the receiving team ends up giving up prime assets and young pieces to acquire said player.


The Nuggets agreed to trade Carmelo Anthony, and ended up with Danilo Galinari, Wilson Chandler, Ray Felton and 3 Draft Picks for a player who was walking away in a few months as is.


If Melo really wanted to win, he woudn't have forced a trade and went to the Knicks as a free agent. Thus keeping the young players and picks in the Knicks possession to improve the team and his chance at winning. Going to a team that guts it's future to acquire your services isn't the best bet.


The only reason you would do this is to guarantee yourself the most income. Love is going to be in his absolute prime even if he signs a shorter max deal when his services next become available. He will absolutely get paid and with the cap potentially increasing, he could get paid more not locking himself up with the longest term possible.

He should pull a Lebron and keep his options open. Lebron is the only star who moved and got the most out of his exit.


Pull a King James and don't give any indication of what you want to do. Say you want to play it out and decide at the end of the season. That way a team doesn't gut their roster for you. Walk into the situation of your choosing. Lebron got a lot of grief for the decision, but walking away from Cleveland is what allowed him to arrive in Miami with Wade and Bosh in place. If he pushed for a trade to Miami, many pieces including Wade might have been moved to get him. He wouldn't be on the verge of this 3rd straight title right now.


Coming to PHX at the end of next season, with a core of Goran, Bledsoe, Tucker, Archie, the Morri, Len etc. plus our bevy of picks would be much better for his chance to win.

If he forces his way out, half of those players will be in Minnesota. He's best to play poker, and hold his cards close. That way he can choose where he wants to play.

Hopefully in late 2015 he'll be taking his talents to South Phoenix.
