Cleveland Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin says Kevin Love committed to defense, team needs rim protection

It appears the Cavaliers aren't quite satisfied with the roster they have built. It's been a monumental offseason for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but that doesn't mean their roster is set. The general manager, David Griffin, still has an eye on improving the team's ability to protect the rim. Andy Greder, of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, got a few details from a radio interview Griffin did yesterday for Fox Sports Radio: #Cavs GM David Griffin to Fox Sports Radio: "I have concerns (on) ability to protect the rim, and that’s not just a Kevin (Love) question." — Andy Greder (@twolvesnow)...

Minnesota owner attacks Kevin Love

Minnesota owner attacks Kevin Love

I would take Love in a second, but to be fair. His defense has been questionable for years. He's a top 3 rebounder. He's one of the best at his position, if nor the best power forward. But his defense has known to be weak, and his former team called him out. I agree with Love, he should focus on his players.ESPNNew Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love has a message for Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor: Quit worrying about me and focus on your team instead.Love, appearing on ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike" on Wednesday morning, responded to comments made by Taylor, who said Tuesday that...

At long last, Kahn is gone

In trading Love, the Timberwolves pay a steep price to finally, completely free themselves of David Kahn Everything that wants to take flight engages four fundamental forces of nature: Thrust - that which moves it forward Lift - that which pulls it up Gravity - that which pulls it down Drag - that which kills its momentum For the past 6 years, the drag on Flight 600 First Avenue North has gone by one name: David Kahn. Minnesota has been positively, weirdly and unrepentantly enthusiastic about ditching Kevin Love. Why is that? Love is a top 10 player in the NBA. He sets all sorts of...

Wednesday (The Wolves long-term with Love and without Love) edition: Wha' Happened?

The 1996-97 Timberwolves, with a young Kevin Garnett and Stephon Marbury, won 40 games. Back then, the West was the NBA’s lesser conference (four teams in the Wolves’ division won 24 games or fewer), and that 40-42 record was enough to get the Wolves the No. 6 seed in the playoffs. It felt like the start of something big, and even though Marbury blew up the dynamic duo, it was the beginning of eight consecutive playoff appearances. The 2013-14 Timberwolves, with Kevin Love and a cast of others, won 40 games. These days, the West is the NBA’s dominant conference (the Suns, at 48-34,...
