The Loose Canons of KLAC are reporting that the upperclassmen on the basketball team are unhappy that Kevin Love is getting all the credit for our success this year. I hope it's not true, and if so, Coach Howland must shut this down immediately...
I'm not sure if this is being brought up just to drive ratings, but they're reporting that some of the upperclassmen are upset that Love is getting all the credit for being the savior for a team that made two consecutive Final Four appearances. To make matters worse, they're stating that Love isn't getting touches as payback for that.
Obviously, this would be devastating to the program. I find it hard to believe that such a rift exists. The kids on our team don't seem to have that make-up and Howland certainly isn't the type to sit there passively and let it happen.
But if it is true, it's time for those players with a chip on their shoulder to grow up. Basketball is a team game, but it isn't a democracy. Like it or not, KL is the main guy on the team, and there's zero chance we win a championship without him. On top of that, he's a total team guy, unlike the freshman gangsta across town. His signature is his passing, and I don't believe he has any interest in padding stats or taking credit where credit isn't due.
Anyway, I don't think this is anything, but since I heard it, I thought I'd report it.
