Kevin Love, who willingly signed a $120 million contract, is acting like a hostage



You know what demographic of humans has it really bad?

The Kevin Love demographic -- the rich 6-foot-10 handsome male sector of this world. He’s had a really tough year.

Let’s take a look back.

July 24, 2018 -- Kevin Love signs a four-year, $120 million extension that obviously prioritizes his bank account over playing for a winning team.

Dec. 9, 2019 -- News leaks that Kevin Love wants a trade to a contender.

Dec. 13, 2019 -- Kevin Love commits a 3-second violation that would make Wilt Chamberlain swoon.

Dec. 31, 2019 -- Kevn Love throws a temper tantrum on the bench. When threatened with a fine, he reportedly responds, ‘I have plenty of money.’

Jan. 4, 2020 -- Kevin Love demands the ball at the end of a game’s first half, clapping deliberately in Collin Sexton’s face before throwing an errant bullet pass to Cedi Osman with three seconds left on the shot clock.

Jan. 4, 2020 -- In the fourth quarter of the same game, Kevin Love walks with the conviction of a wounded sheep toward his own bench as Dennis Schröder cruises in for a layup.

Jan. 5, 2020 -- Kevin Love posts a picture of himself and Collin Sexton on Instagram, writing, ‘A lot of non truths being shared...but I’ve learned that we live in a world where people remember accusations and not rebuttals.’

To summarize: Kevin Love acts a certain way in public over a sustained period, doesn’t try for long stretches in a job where he’s making a lot of money, then denies any culpability and blames the media.
