Before (Kevin) Love had his agent push the Wolves for a trade in April, (Ricky) Rubio never did have a heart-to-heart with him about a future together. On a trip to Los Angeles after the T’wolves season ended, Rubio considered talking to Love there, but never bothered.

What was the point anymore?

“If he wanted to leave, there’s no reason to talk to him about it,” Rubio told Yahoo. “I really liked playing with him, but I’ll play with the players who want to be there. Kevin wants to win. That’s normal. He’s been there six years without the playoffs. I understand. If I was in the same situation – being one of the best players in the league – and not being able to be in the playoffs, I’d have a lot of frustration, too.
