    Are Kevin Love's stats overrated?

    guy always puts up these big numbers yet I always hear people saying he won't let anyone else grab rebounds, guy is selfish, not a team player etc. Tonight for example 43 points and 19 rebounds yet they still lose. Love had a stellar game shooting 12/22 from the field and 17/18 from the free throw line. Of course they play no defense and simply try to outscore teams. And this year now that the Wolves are fully healthy they are underachieving and it seems like Love joining the Lakers down the road at this point is inevitable. Is the team around Love simply bad here or is he part of the problem?

    love loves calling out his teamates but he is sometimes the problem himself,like the time he chokef at ft line missing 5ft in a row to win or tie game when he is 80% shooter

    The team around him sucks.

    Rubio is horrible. You can't win in this league with a PG who shoots 35% from the floor.

    Corey Brewer is merely a good rotation guy but he's not a starting SF on any good team.

    Kevin Martin can score but does literally nothing else to help the team.

    Pekovic is good though.

    Oh, and the bench is ATROCIOUS.

    He's the only play maker on the team. Ball hog but he has to be. Betting the UNDER in MIN games are always nail bitters. They play no D.

    But it does say something about Love too to a degree. I mean he's still an awesome player but he's not on the level of guys like Kobe, LeBron, Wade or even Dirk who have made the playoffs and even deep runs with awful rosters. But that's not news to anyone that he's not on the level of those guys.

    I kind of wonder the same thing at times. I have a hard time thinking of Love as a "loser" or in the same category as a guy like Josh Smith or Carmelo Anthony. I'm starting to think Rubio may be the main problem on that team. He can't play defense, and he can't score. Twolves are playing 4 on 5 on offense with Rubio on the court. He literally can't shoot a jumper outside of the paint. In the month of January he averaged 8ppg on 35% shooting. Not good for a guy who plays starters minutes.

    I don't get the "will not let teammates get rebounds". Is he supposed to get out of the way or tip the ball to others?

    Twolves need to replace the feggot rubio. That shittard cant play. He will never look to score.. facking euro players that like to rush in and fall on the court hoping to get a foul. Guy wont even shoot when hes wide open like a white boy suppose to. " do your facking job and take the open jump shots like you suppose to do idiot!"

    How many All stars has Love played with? If its less than 2...the answer is an overwhelming NO...The public is devaluing what this man is doing because he is white and playing in a small market....Kobe does it and its "his teammates sucks"....Love has been doing this for years..and its "he's overrated".......lol

    kevin love is underrated if anything
    he can lead the league in reb's, hit FT's, pass and step out for a 3
    pair him with another superstar and u will see how good he is

    If kevin love had a descent team mate they would be descent. This combo comes into mind.

    this. He is the first white player to get this much "Love" since Larry Bird.

    Props to him... i love to see a white boy shine in a black mans game.

    For how long is Pekovic gone? Twolves will lose even more games with him out of the lineup.

    Kevin Love is great! He could play tougher on defence but......Currently, the problem is with Rubio. He gambles on defence and sometimes gets his steals but if unsuccessful - he leaves an open man on a shooting position. Also, he needs to shoot (and score).
