Patience has worn thin among the public in terms of how the Congolese veteran is viewed after a disappointing regular season and a complete disappearing act in the playoffs in 2017-18, but, truth be told, the Raptors also need him. For us, we're a play-off team. The fourth-year pro is only 25 years old.

"The only thing I didn't want was I didn't want to be with a team that was going to tank or not be competitive", Love said.
