WATCH: T-Wolves have fun with Love’s return … by completely ignoring him in promo video
Saturday will be the first time Kevin Love returns to Minnesota to face the Timberwolves since the big offseason trade that sent him to Cleveland.
But instead of welcoming the former face of the franchise back to the place he called home for six years, the T-Wolves are promoting "The Return" in a different way.
See for yourself:
Ouch, talk about cold!
That’s right, the promotional video completely ignores K-Love, and instead focuses on the return of Cavaliers small forward Mike Miller, who spent one forgettable season in Minnesota (2008-09).
Love’s time in Minnesota ended with reports of frustration and unhappiness when he failed to receive a full five-year max contract, so it will be interesting to see how fans welcome him back to the Land of 10,000 Lakes this weekend.
Love, 26, is averaging 17.1 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists this season with the Cavaliers, who are currently riding an eight-game winning streak.
