Kevin Love visits Boston

Whispers began spreading last night that Kevin Love was visiting Boston (and caught fire on Saturday with one particular report from Dirty Water News suggesting Love was here to "check out the city and see what it’s like.") Soon photos, like the one below, began popping up on Twitter showing Love navigating the streets of Boston.

Love has been a hot topic in these parts recently because of speculation that, entering the final year of his contract, the Timberwolves might be motivated to move him in order to get something in return rather than risk the possibility that he signs elsewhere next summer on the open market.

The Celtics have a treasure trove of potential trade assets (young players, draft picks, nonguaranteed contracts) that would make them player in pursuit of any available big-name player. Love's visit to Boston has only put Celtics fans, punch drunk after a 57-loss rebuilding season, into a lather imagining the possibility of adding one of the league's top young stars.
