Kevin Love - One of the most exciting young players.

KLove has been back in the lineup for the Wolves and his numbers are just part of what he does for the team when he's on the floor. Scoring check, Rebounding check, Beautiful passing check, 3 point shooting check, Love is doing it all for the Wolves. He throws a pass from the chest under the boards, past mid court in a split second, many times hitting a streaking sf for a layup or dunk. It's beautiful to watch. When Love is on the floor the Wolves are a better team. He sets a great pick and he's able to hit the shot off the pick & roll out to the 3 point line. Love is one of the few players in the league who actually enjoys going after every rebound thinking it's his. His overall game is improving at a fast pace and is pretty much the only reason to watch the Timberwolves.

The Wolves have 3 1st round picks & 2 are in the lottery. Building around Love & Flynn should be the #1 plan in Minnesota over the next 2-3 seasons. If David Kahn is smart he should follow the path the Blazers took and in a few more years they might challenge for the 8th spot in the Western Conference. Rubio can always be used as a trade chip and if the Wolves get lucky they might come away with John Wall.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Love earn the MVP as a member of the Soph Team @ All-Star Weekend this year.
