Minnesota Timberwolves big man Kevin Love was in Boston last night to "check out the city and see what it's like," according to Dirty Water News. Apparently he visited The Greatest Bar, which happens to be right across the street from the home of the Boston Celtics, TD Garden.
Dirty Water News – Kevin Love in Boston all weekend… LOVE IT!!!
Right off the plane he headed to The Greatest Bar for dinner up in the mezzanine. He sat in The Greatest Bar with his to buddies for a couple hours and then Rumor has it he headed over to Rumor for a night cap!
When asked why he was in town he responded " I’m here to just check out the city and see what it’s like"… Tomorrow (actually today as it’s 2am) he will be walking around the city checking out all the sights . We hear he is headed to Del Frisco’s in this evening (Sat. Night). Sunday he will be going to the Red Sox game.
Considering the Celtics are rumored to be after Love, it's quite interesting that he's actually here in the city, assuming the photograph was actually taken last night. Perhaps, he's touring the cities of teams that are interested in him or maybe a deal is more finalized than we think it is. Who knows?
It's not worth speculating about -- I know you all will anyway -- but the fact that he's reportedly in Boston for the weekend suggests that something is possibly going down and that the Celtics are a team that's heavily interested in him.
