Mike Gorman shared his opinion on the Kevin Love trade rumors this morning:
“The thing I’ve always heard about Kevin Love is that he wants to go back to Los Angeles and he wants to play, after five years or however long it’s been in Minnesota, in a warm weather climate. That kind of eliminates us here in Boston.
“He also says, because he’s never made the playoffs, he wants to go to a team that’s gonna be in the playoffs right away. That would be optimistic. You’d like to see the Celtics in the playoffs next year, but when you had 25 wins or whatever it was this year I’m not thinking you’re gonna make that big of a jump of 20 wins necessary to make the playoffs.
“On that sense I don’t think it backs up that Kevin Love will come here,” said Gorman.
Boo. Hiss. Way to piss all over our party, Mike.
If Kevin Love is still hung up on playing in sunny Los Angeles, then I don’t want him here in Boston. We want guys who put hoops first, weather and family second.
Are the Lakers going to be in the playoffs right away? Kobe and Nash are old as dirt. Gasol will be gone. Does that team even have a coach? The Lakers will be lucky to be an 8 seed in the West even with Love.
