Kevin Love has made it clear to the Minnesota Timberwolves that they'd better trade him while they can, because he will be opting for free agency after the 2014-15 NBA season.

Wolves point guard Ricky Rubio isn't exactly impressed with Love's honesty.

Per Josh Dhani of FootBasket.com, Rubio spoke with Basket Americano about what the Timberwolves could have done differently with Love this season in light of his recent trade request:

“He is a special player, his numbers are unbelievable but maybe our leader must be other player. He is our leader in points and another things but he can’t be or he doesn’t want to be our ‘voice’ leader Many kind of leaders. Perhaps he shouldn’t have been our leader, perhaps Kevin Martin could have been our leader because he had more experience, perhaps I could take a step ahead to be the definitive leader.”

Is this the beginning of the end of Love with the Wolves? It's starting to look more and more like it.
