Liz Habib Sports List: Kobe Bryant and Kevin Love-Teammates?


The trade rumors are swirling about the Timberwolves Kevin Love, but is there a chance he ends up playing with Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers?  
A lot of different teams would like to add the superstar to their roster…the Knicks, Celtics and Cavs are generating the hottest trade rumors .  Love told me it's flattering to be wanted by several different teams.  He says after 6 years in the league, it's bittersweet to watch former teammates, like Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Darren Collison with the Los Angeles Clippers, have so much success in the playoffs.  He says it "leaves a bad taste in my mouth to not play deep into playoffs."  So what about playing with Kobe and the Lakers?    He says he has a developed a nice relationship with the Buss family and Jeanie Buss.  And he has Lakers pedigree, his father, Stan Love, played forward for the Lakers in the early 1970's along with Jerry West and Pat Riley.  Love says, "LA is a great place, a lot of people are always going to want to go here."

I talked with Kevin Love at E3 2014, the big video game convention in LA.  He stopped by to play the new "Call of Duty: Advance Warfare."  He called the game "surreal" and "unbelievable."
