No Truth for Love, No Love for Truth

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Word is the Nets would like to see Kevin Love in black-and-white in the not-too-distant future, that whenever he becomes available, they will make a bid.  But Sunday night, the love for Love went unrequited.  The 6'10" uber power forward dissed his suitor ... and blamed his poor game (14 points, nine boards) on some undiagnosed illness.

When asked post-game about the Nets post-season chances, his response was biting:

"Sure," Love said. "They’ve got guys who can step up and hit shots. They’re in the East." - See more at: http://www.northjersey.com/sports/basketball/nets-don-t-impress-kevin-love-1.838019#sthash.8xm8cz48.dpuf

"Sure. They’ve got guys who can step up and hit shots," then noted, "They’re in the East."

Poor Kevin, who is getting a reputation as somewhat of a whiner as his Timberwolves underachieve annually.  Not only is he frustrated.  He is uninformed as Tim Bontemps tweeted...

He also spoke about how he's feeling.

"I might be getting sick or something,’’ he said after scoring all of two points  after halftime. "I just had zero energy in the second half. I had nothing.’’

It couldn't be that he was coming off an exhausting back-to-back or an emotionally draining game. On Friday, Love played only 29 minutes in the T-Wolves' 143-104 blowout win over the Lakers.

Paul Pierce, who guarded Minnesota’s power forward most of the game, had the diagnosis and the retort ... as Mitch Lawrence reports.

"Pierce-itis,’’ Pierce said, walking out of the locker room. "It’s getting around.’’

No Love for The Truth.
