You Forgot How Good Kevin Love Is, Didn't You?
Kevin Love spent the first six years of his career in Minnesota, which means that unless you looked for him, you might not have seen him. That's the reason why so many people have found it easy to criticize Love -- like Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor, for example -- or say that he only cares about stuffing the stat sheet, or otherwise downplay him.
But let's not get it twisted: Love is really, really good, particularly at the offensive end. He's a fantastic long-range shooter, an incredible outlet passer, and his ability to stretch the floor is going to do wonders for LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, both of whom love to drive to the bucket.
Watch him destroy the Bucks (yes, they shouldn't count, we know) in a preseason game (yes, it doesn't count, we know) last night and come to terms with the fact that this year's NBA title is the Cavaliers' to lose.
DID YOU SEE THAT ONE-LEGGED FALLAWAY JUMPER OFF THE GLASS? THAT'S LIKE DIRK + DUNCAN, BUT YOUNGER.
Oh hey, Shawn Marion is in there too. And Dion Waiters. And Anderson Varejao. Yep, the NBA is fucked.
