Kevin Love Downplays Interest in Playing for the Lakers

by February 19, 2014

Most fans and media seem to think Kevin Love wants to bolt Minnesota and play in Los Angeles. It’s only logical, right? Not so fast, cautions Love. Per GQ:

Now that he looks like a leading man—and with free agency looming as an option at the end of next season, and the Wolves not exactly killing it on the court—everyone assumes that his next big move is to Los Angeles. He’s dating actress Cody Horn, a California girl, and his Beach Boy uncle, Mike, co-wrote “California Girls.” So fess up, Kev: You’re gone, right? “People think it’s so far-fetched that I would stay in Minnesota,” he says. “And I’m not shitting on the Lakers, but we have the better team, the better foundation. I’m having fun.” Note the present tense.
