In a little GQ feature about Kevin Love -- most of it was about his beard and his hair -- we find this little nugget about his opt-out clause after the 2014-15 season and his potential to stay in Minnesota:

 

Now that he looks like a leading man—and with free agency looming as an option at the end of next season, and the Wolves not exactly killing it on the court—everyone assumes that his next big move is to Los Angeles. He's dating actress Cody Horn, a California girl, and his Beach Boy uncle, Mike, co-wrote “California Girls.”

So fess up, Kev: You're gone, right? “People think it's so far-fetched that I would stay in Minnesota,” he says. “And I'm not [redacted] on the Lakers, but we have the better team, the better foundation. I'm having fun.”

Note the present tense.

Make of that what you will. The summer of 2015 is still a ways out there. But file that quote away ...
