Love Hate Relationship: Stinky Teammates Inspire Name Change for T-Wolves Star

Kevin Love is jack of the jackoffs on his underachieving Minnesota T-Wolves team.

He bawled out a pair of bench-warming bums -- apparently JJ 'Nay-Say' Barea and Dante 'InferNO' Cunningham -- following the Wolves' fourth quarter bed-wet against Phoenix on Wednesday.

"We can't have two guys sitting at the end of the bench, who play good minutes, just sitting there and not getting up at timeouts," Love fumed while angrily chopping wood. "We all need to be in this together. That kind of pisses me off. We’re supposed to be a team."

But if you thought a public tirade was the end of the section, think again: to fully cement this newfound 'tude of ass-kicker and hopefully get some fear-induced cheerleading out of his pine-riders, Love is changing his name.

To 'Hate'.

"It's my last-ditch attempt to get through to these bungholes!" Love screamed. "Leading by example hasn't been enough! Getting eighty points and sixty rebounds a game hasn't been enough! Maybe a dose of 'Hate' will do the job!!!"

The name-change certainly works on the other side of the ball. The phrase 'Kevin Hate Defense' perfectly sums up the all-star's contribution in his own end.
