Kevin Love refuses to apologize for comments

US PRESSWIRE

The Timberwolves' cornerstone player insists that he won't back down from recent, critical comments he made in an interview.

While he made sure to express some love for the organization, Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love did not apologize for recent statements he made that were critical of the franchise, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune writes.

In a recent article written by Adrian Wojnarowski for Yahoo! Sports, Love questioned the Timberwolves' ultimate desire to compete, and wondered aloud whether the team was establishing a plan to make Ricky Rubio the franchise cornerstone rather than himself.

"I meant what I said, I told [Timberwolves executive] David [Kahn] there's nothing to apologize about," Love said. "The only thing I was sorry about is that I did in public and if there's a learning experience from that, it's not to do that again."

Love did insist that he's happy with his current teammates, including Rubio, who he described as "one of my favorites." He also said that he'd like to end his career with the franchise, though he's clearly not entirely enamored with the lack of success he's had thus far in his professional career.
