Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor needs to channel his inner Dan Gilbert more.

Taylor, feeling spurned by now-former Wolves forward Kevin Love, strung together a Gilbert-esque "and don't let the door hit you" speech on Tuesday. Not as bitter, but certainly not complimentary.

Per ESPN1500.com of Minneapolis, Taylor took down Love bit by bit while meeting with reporters who came out to meet Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett, the players Minnesota acquired from Gilbert's Cavaliers in last week's Love trade.

The highlights:

"I think Kevin, his offensive skills got better than I think we estimated. The only thing that I still have a question mark about will be his health. I had that concern then, I still have that concern and I think Cleveland should have that concern, too. If they sign him to a five-year contract like they're thinking about, I mean that's a big contract in a guy that's had sometimes where he's missed games."

"I question Kevin if this is going to be the best deal for him because I think he's going to be the third player on a team. I don't think he's going to get a lot of credit if they do really well. I think he'll get the blame if they don't do well. He's going to have to learn to handle that."

"I think he's around a couple guys (who) are awful good (LeBron James, Kyrie Irving). Now, I'm not saying that Kevin's not good, but I think where maybe he got away with so

And yet, Taylor also said that he and Love have a good relationship. Hard to believe that will be the case after this.
