Lets see how/if he's able to maintain this production.

Honestly at this point if you're not giving K Love some love for his play you're straight hating.
I see him getting SO much praise actually, but not to the point to say that he's the 2nd best player in the league after 9 games.

In all seriousness, I love Love's game. Very fun to watch (today's Jerry Lucas?), and I like the entire Minny team (generally I'll pull for them when I watch).
He has an outside game like Lucas but who Kevin Love really reminds me of is this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1xlhGg-lCo

Obviously doesn't have the vertical, nor the sheer foot speed, and in today's NBA he doesn't have the physical game #2 used. But their uncanny understanding of angles, skill at boxing out away from the bounce, astronomical rebounding skills and outlet games are real real similar. D of course is not to be compared.

Or (again not talking D) this guy when he was younger:

I've been thinking K-Love reminds me most of this guy:

K Love loves hanging out on the Beach, Boys.


Idk. It seemed clever in my mind, but typing it out..

I'm not ready to don him as the 2nd best player. But he's at the least been the 2nd best player over the first 9 games.

People might laugh at it before the season but now i think it's an argument.

I still think KD is better but it's an argument now.

See, the thing is, Love has always had these kinds of abilities but his team was the laughingstock of the league, partly due to the FO but also like last season, because the Wolves were literally playing at times with 10 guys injured.

Now he has a team around him he's suddenly getting lots of ISH burn.

even tho the empty staters were always exposed, it's now blatant as Joey Crawford

Durant and Love are playing the best basketball right now. CP3 third.
