MINNEAPOLIS - Kevin Love showed up for the start of Minnesota Timberwolves training camp eager to put last season behind him, and it's hard to blame him.
"We all know what happened last year, and we just want to move forward and take care of the unfinished business," Love said.
Love played in only 18 games last season because of a right hand that was broken twice and a minor knee injury. Some fans turned on him as well, so Love threw himself into a rigorous training regimen this summer and comes back with something to prove.
"(I spent the summer) just getting better every single day," Love said. "(I) Woke up with a great attitude and continue to get better. I learned early that players get better in the summer."
Love showed up with a chiseled frame and ready to reclaim his spot as the league's best power forward.
Coach Rick Adelman is back as well after a summer of uncertainty surrounding the health of his wife. Adelman says his wife is doing well and he's ready to get back to work.
Love said he is thrilled to have his coach back, too.
"He's a hall of fame coach and everybody knows what he's done in the league, his track record so it's really going to help us in training camp and moving forward," Love said.
