Bulls Fans Can't Help But Dream of Love

Bulls_200.pngMinnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love wants to win.

So much so that the Chicago Bulls might be a potential landing destination.

It is no secret that Kevin Love wants to play for a playoff team. Love averages 25 points and 13 rebounds per game. The Timberwolves haven't made the playoffs in eight seasons. The two-time all-star made his frustrations known in article by Yahoo! Sports. "My patience is not high," Love said. "Would yours be, especially when I'm a big proponent of greatness surrounding itself with greatness? All these [Team USA] guys seem to have great players around them.

Like all Bulls fans, I too would love to have a power forward that can drop 51 and 14 at a moment's notice. Love would be a serious upgrade from Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah.

At this point, any talk is purely speculation, but as a Bulls fan you cannot blame me for thinking of having Kevin Love and Derrick Rose on the same team. That would be on par with the "Super Friends" era that is the new trend in the NBA. Two or three star players can take a team pretty far in today's NBA.

Love seems to be chomping at the bit to play for a winner. "It's tough seeing all these guys that are young and older who have all played in the playoffs," he told Yahoo. "When they start talking about that, I have nothing to talk about. If I don't make the playoffs next year I don't know what will happen."

Maybe Gar/Pax can right some recent wrongs by bringing K-Love to the Windy City.
