Default Re: Are Dirk Nowitzki highlights 'impressive' to watch? How about Kevin Love?

His weakness is really not efficiency, or offensive impact. He's just bad on defense, better than average but not great at creating for himself, and injury prone. When you need a big bucket, or a stop, you can't rely on Love, but he will do work over the course of a game.

I'm not sure this is the place to have this discussion, but when you have a guy who can rebound like Love, I hate the thought of him taking all of those bombs rather than playing an inside game.
I think the spacing he provides for Pek is much more important than the occasional offensive rebound.
