Meet me at the Timberwolves bench, it’s going down. Meet me at Power Balance Pavilion, it’s going down. We’re this close to having a full-fledged, fist-on-face fight on the Minnesota sideline. THIS CLOSE.

Well, almost. From the AP:

“It’s frustrating, but nothing personal against JJ,” said Love, who made just 7-of-20 shots. “I think we were both frustrated and took it out on each other when we should have took it out on the other team. So both of us made mistakes and both of us feel bad.”

Dang it. “We could have had a fiiii-e-iiight,” says Adele, who was definitely talking about the prospects of a J.J. Barea vs. Kevin Love fight, for sure. She just loves writing breakup songs, sometimes about professional basketball teams who are going through hard times, like losing five of six games and dropping out of the playoffs.

It’s for the best though. Not that I don’t appreciate J.J. Barea’s fighting spirit and shiftiness, but from the looks of things, this isn’t the fairest of fights. I talked to several boxing experts while creating this chart, so you can be assured of its accuracy.

Maybe this should be a handicap match. If Barea gets someone like Luke Ridnour or Wesley Johnson, then it’s probably fair. I’m still taking Love — mostly because he once had to fight his way out of a beaver dam with only his hands as weapons — but it seems like a 2-on-1 showdown is the best way to make things even. Very smart of Barea to not take things too far last night. Waiting for backup is always a good plan.

  1. After JJ survived Bynum it makes sense that he thinks he can whoop Kevin Love.

  2. Barea looks like an MMA fighter though. Love is that old-school bar brawler that took part in UFC 1, and lost in embarrasing fashion because his opponent wasn’t the usual town drunk/meth head type.

  3. Peck vs. The Timberwolves, Thunderwolves, and Direwolves….I got Peck and vegas has him at -225

  4. Between this and stomping on Luis Scola’s face, I’m getting the impression that Kevin Love is a dick.

  5. JJ is just feisty. Check out an old article – ‘Terry quarrels with Barea.’ I was at that game. The best part are the comments below.

  8. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  9. Greetings! I’ve been reading your site for a long time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Lubbock Tx! Just wanted to say keep up the great job!
