I'd like it if the team was worth watching sometimes!
"Hopefully [Beasley] wants to play small forward and not power forward so we can be out there together," Love told the Star Tribune. "I feel like I'm a starter. I want to be a starter. Sixth man is and will be kind of hard for me to accept on this team. If this was the Lakers and Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum were in front of me, it'd be different ... We're young and inexperienced. It's tough to see where we're headed."
There were keen observers of the Minnesota team last season who felt that Love often was benched as a way of handicapping the situation, giving the Wolves a greater shot at lottery-valuable losses. After all, with the former UCLA forward on the court, Minnesota was 5.7 points better than when he sat, by far the best rating among its frontcourt players.
