Spoke w/ Flip post-presser. Asked if Love can be main guy on really good team. Praised Love, but tap danced around a direct answer. #twolves
A. ... And my feelings toward Kevin, frankly, I really like him. And we've had some really productive conversation about the steps he needs to take to win back the respect and admiration of his teammates and coaches. It's almost ridiculous how much attention is paid to my relationship with him. In terms of import, it has no bearing at end of the day whether he'll be happy here and whether organization will be happy with him. It's much more important for him to forge really meaningful relationships with his teammates and coaches.
Q. Why did you say he needs to win back the respect of his teammates?
A. I think there's some work for him to be done in terms of, he didn't play very much this year, right? And I think there's a void there because of that. Many of those guys really fought their way back from injury, sometimes multiple injuries. He had two broken hands. He came back once, didn't play well, broke his hand again and then decided to have his knee done at the end of the year when the pain was such. I think he has some work to do in the locker room, and I believe he will. I certainly don't want that to come across negatively. I believe he will and I believe he's on the right path.
but I wonder if he is indeed attainable now.
Gordon and Lopez going to Sac Town
Cousins, Thornton, and Salmons coming here
We swap 1sts in this draft (assuming that we have the higher pick) and they send a top 3 protected 1st in 2014 (to take on Salmons contract).
I think I'm obsessed with Cousins.
