Kevin Love visits Boston, rumors follow

Hey, was that Kevin Love we saw at the Red Sox game yesterday? Is that Kevin Love shaking hands with Rajon Rondo?

Is that Kevin Love pretending to smoke a cigar with the Red Auerbach statue? Or sharing some words with former Minnesota Twin David Ortiz?

That is some vacation to Bean Town for the NBA’s most available trade target and that started the rumor mill flowing that Love was eyeing a move to Boston.

It is a pretty well-known secret that Love is not happy with the Timberwolves right now. They have failed to make the Playoffs in his five-year career. They have not really even sniffed it with injuries and poor decisions derailing them. With Love’s free agency coming up, Love has more or less privately put down an ultimatum for the team to turn that corner or expect him to walk in free agency.

That has the sharks circling. And his recent trip to Boston is not helping.
