Miami Heat Coach’s Praise Of Kevin Love Indicates Love Might Have A Venereal Disease

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Electra."

Sure, it requires some selective editing of Miami Heat coach Eric Spoelstra’s original comments, but when he compared Timberwolves forward Kevin Love to Dennis Rodman in advance of the T-Wolves “showdown” with the Heat tonight, the above headline is the first thing that came to mind. You know, because Rodman is a boozed-up has been who will nail anything that walks.

The quote, in its unedited form (via the Pioneer Press):

“It’s hard not to be a fan of Kevin Love,” Spoelstra said. “When you watch him work and battle under the basket, it speaks to his motor and his effort. He’s relentless. He reminds you a lot of Dennis Rodman.”

See, by simply taking out that middle sentence – hey, I’m a blogger, we’re allowed to do that – my thoughts turned to the future, 15 years down the road, when a washed up, burned-out Kevin Love is banging cocktail waitresses two at a time in between making nonsensical, inarticulate appearances on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew or whoever the devil it is that hosts that damn show. Wait. Is it Dr. Demento? Dr. Martens? Whoever it is, all I know is I now have a serious hankering for a Dr. Pepper.
