Sure sounds like Kevin Love, Timberwolves are headed for summertime breakup

"It's not you, it's... nah, actually it is you."
Unceasing speculation about Kevin Love's long-term future in Minnesota has been ongoing at least since January 2012, when Love signed a less-than-maximum four-year contract extension with an option to walk away after the third year.

In the months that followed, reports emerged that Love wasn't happy with then-President of Basketball Operations David Kahn's much-criticized decision to not give him a maximum five-year deal. Though Kahn was jettisoned for Flip Saunders in April of last year, a disappointing 2013-14 season left K-Love very, very sad, and now, with only one year left between Love and free agency, a number of reports are surfacing indicating team officials have already been informed the second-best player in franchise history has no interest in again re-signing here.

Kevin Love is seriously sad [VIDEO]

KLoveSad.jpg
The 2013-14 Timberwolves season began with such optimism. Ten years removed from the team's last playoff berth, it looked like the NBA's most downtrodden franchise was finally about to get over the hump.

But after a hot start, the Wolves started losing close games. Unfortunately, they never stopped, and after a heartbreaking defeat at home Sunday against Phoenix -- the Wolves led by 22 in the second but characteristically crumbled in crunch time -- the meaningful portion of this season's schedule is over. As has been the case every year since the MV3 Western Conference Finals run of 2004, there will be no playoffs this spring for the Pups.

In February, Kevin Love averaged an otherworldly 34 points (that's a franchise record for an individual month), 14 rebounds, and four assists per game, while shooting 41 percent from three-point land. And last night, K-Love came within an assist of notching his second career triple-double (the first happened last Saturday night in Utah), putting up a ridiculous 33-13-9 during a must-win contest in Phoenix (the Wolves prevailed 110-101).

Will K-Love give us one more chance to make him happy?
It's no fun to be dumped, but it especially sucks when it comes from someone you're really into. Unfortunately, the NBA intelligentsia is advising Timberwolves fans to prepare for the sort of heartbreak we haven't felt since our first love, Kevin Garnett, left town in 2007.

"We can't have two guys sitting at the end of the bench, who play good minutes, just sitting there and not getting up at timeouts," Love told reporters after the game. "We all need to be in this together. That kind of pisses me off. We're supposed to be a team."

:::: UPDATE :::: As pointed out below by commenter lubbadubb, dialing the "Love Dial" billboard number yields a sultry voicemail treat from Ricky himself. Although it's a bit hard to follow the specifics, it definitely sounds like the Spanish heartthrob says something about "naked women" and "hot minutes."

Here's our recording -- if you'd like the dial the Love Line up for yourself, the number is 1-855-NEED-LOVE:

The T-Pups beat the Los Angeles Lakers for the first time since spring 2007 (Ricky Davis and KG were still on the team back then). And not only did the Wolves snap a 22-game losing streak against L.A., but they absolutely annihilated a Kobe-less Lakers team in the process, putting up a franchise-record 47 points in the first quarter on the way to a 113-90 victory (for a highly entertaining-for-Wolves-fans account of the game, check out the Los Angeles Times' recap: "Lakers play phantom defense, don't have ghost of a chance in ugly loss").
