Kevin Love Believes Minnesota Has ‘Better Foundation’ Than Lakers

On Tuesday, it was reported that the Los Angeles Lakers were trying to assemble a package to acquire prospective 2015 free agent Kevin Love by Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. While most believe that Love wants to return to Los Angeles, the Timberwolves All-Star made some comments about the Lakers recently.

In a recent interview with GQ Magazine, Love believes the Timberwolves currently have the better team and better foundation:

“People think it’s so far-fetched that I would stay in Minnesota,” he says. “And I’m not s——- on the Lakers, but we have the better team, the better foundation. I’m having fun.”

While the Timberwolves have a better record than the Lakers right now, Minnesota was built to be a playoff team and they are currently six games out of the eighth seed. Earlier this season, Love was visibly frustrated with his teammates’ efforts and it fueled further speculation that he wanted out of Minnesota.

Although the Timberwolves have the better team and foundation, it is simply because Love is on their team right now. While the Lakers are trying to acquire him by Thursday’s deadline, a more realistic option is next summer when Love is set to become a free agent.

With a lottery pick in this year’s highly anticipated 2014 NBA Draft and ample cap room, the Lakers’ front office can quickly turn this team into a championship contender again.

Drafted by Minnesota in 2008, Love is averaging 25.8 points and 13.2 rebounds in his sixth season. The current Timberwolves forward becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2015.
