The Minnesota Timberwolves have trolled former star Kevin Love ahead of his return to the city with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.
Since Love’s departure last summer, there has been a very public exchange of words between him and coach Flip Saunders while owner Glen Taylor has also involved himself.
Despite failing to secure Love’s future themselves with his last contract, there is a sense of bitterness that the 26-year-old left the franchise when he did as the Timberwolves have gone on to struggle this season and are rooted to the bottom of the Western Conference.
While injuries have also played a significant part in their downfall this season, they have been forced into a rebuilding mode as they adjust to life with Love leading the team and they begun the process by putting together a young nucleus of talented players.
Although he didn’t leave on the best of terms, it is widely assumed that this video is more tongue-in-cheek rather than being directly bitter towards him.
Either way, he will surely see the funny side of it and hope to pick up the win when he visits his old town on Saturday…
