Are Dirk Nowitzki highlights 'impressive' to watch? How about Kevin Love?
 
If so, what makes them impressive? Dirk's fade away? Kevin Love's jump shot?

I personally love the way Dirk operates on offense.. Especially the fade away

Nowitzki was certainly impressive to watch during his championship run. He fearlessly takes and makes a lot of tough shots, and I, personally find that exciting to watch. Love is more complicated. I don't like his game (well, his offensive game), but that has a lot to do with my own disdain of the 3-point shot. I do like his aggressive rebounding style, but when do you ever see rebounds on sports center? You know who else should be mentioned in this thread? Zach Randolph. He does nothing fancy and can't jump any higher than I can, but he gets the job done. He reminds me of Paul Silas but with more offensive skills.

Please don't put Kevin Love and Dirk Nowitzki in the same phrasing

Thank you! Do his supporters realize he had a .352 FG% last year? That was even worse than Rubio.

Watching Dirk highlights is a thing of beauty. Just because he's not doing flashy passes or big slams doesn't mean they're boring. His shots are so clean, he's taking these tough contested fadeaways that swish clean through the basket. You can appreciate his ability when it's slowed down.

Can't comment on K-Love highlights

Kevin Love is the very definition of empty stats. So far he has had almost no positive impact on his teammates and therefore team performances. Minnesota should realize that they are in a great and unique situation that their real star/draw is Ricky Rubio, which allows them to trade their best player Love without the usual backlash. Love has acted poorly toward the Wolves before. If they are a 0.500 team at the all-star break IŽd trade him in a hardbeat. Butler, the rights to Mirotic, CharlotteŽs #1 and Boozer for Kevin Love. Sold.

Kblaze I'm trying to figure who most-visually resembles the game of Bob Pettit today, you've seen some of him cause I know you made a mix about him a while back, what do you think?

This (which doesn't mean Love isn't a fine player, since that's clearly the larger point of this thread. Nowhere near Dirk, of course, but it doesn't have to do with being spectacular)

The guy was playing with a freaking broken hand and you talk about FG% ?

His career FG% is 45 and that's including that season.

It remains to be seen if he EVER gets his stroke back after returning way too soon, and learned bad mechanics to compensate.
