What is your take on Kevin Love? Will he be productive?

He has the skill set to be productive but I don't think his body/size will fair well in the NBA.

I think he will be a really good role player. Dont see him becoming a star but he will be one of those veteran guys who will be around for a while and always make an impact. He will be like Brad Miller 2.0

I think he will be a border line all-star his entire career as a second option most of the time.

That would be a great career for him, maybe even a championship or two down the road...

just by only seeing him play in college i can say at best he'll be an nba starter

I think 11-9 as a rookie, and career wise, around 16-10, with maybe a couple of years of 19-12 in his prime. With some outlet passes that make ESPN.

great player in college, but he is a bit over rated in the NBA for someone who hasnt played a game. his problem is that he's more of a 4 then a 5 in the NBA, and he's going to be playing with AL JEFFERSON as the 4, so he'll have to adjust. averge 14/9 or 14/10 on his carer, depends how well he adjust, and he will be a solid starter, and if he's lucky, maybe 1 or 2 all star games

i think he could be an all star in a couple years if he beefs up. the guy has pretty good rebounding skills but amazing passer, but doesnt quite has the nba size

well, when the Wolves become a playoff team in a few years hopefully, Love will make an all star game. I think he has a couple of 19-12 years in him, but I don't think he will be a superstar. The Wolves didn't draft him for that. They drafted him for his unreal passing ability, toughness, rebounding, and he compliments Big Al, because he can play the high post and pick apart teams with his passing, hit the open jumper, and get out of Al's way

From what i've seen he's a hard worker, he'll be a good starter and later in his career he'll be a good leader.

allstar for me...he'll be like mix of a VERY watered down dirk and kg imo thats it...i see him if he develops as a 22ppg 11rpg 4apg player at his best nd a
16 9 nd 2 guy at the worst

Love the Brad Miller comparison. 100% agreed.

I think Brad Miller is a decent comparison, but I do think Love will hit a ton of 3's as well. And he is a better passer for sure. Not quite as tall, but stronger. But they are similar.

i think he has all the tools to be a solid NBA starter for 10 years. He has solid fundamentals. I think he'll be a pleasant surprise for Mchale and the Wolves.

All i know is a pity he got traded for Oj Mayo.

I would have loved to see the Images on tv when there would have been some free throws.

obviously he can shoot the ball and score some even without hops but most impressive is the fact he can rebound. at summer leagues he was effective. i think he'll be a solid role player.

he will be good, i'm not sure about all star though, i have to see how he does on his first year, but in the draft he was my favorite big man in the draft. if he works on more on his post moves and gets stronger then he can be a very good player.

I see him as a bust. I'm not saying he's going to spend his career rotting at the end of the bench for a different team every year, but he will not be worth the top 10 pick that was spent on him. I also think the Timberwolves made a COLOSSAL mistake by trading O.J. Mayo for him.

He's got a great skill set and a big body. He needs to get his conditioning up, but he'll be a good NBA player. I think he'll be that guy who in like 10 years, we'll be like, damn, how come he hasn't made an all star team at least once?

How is Love a better passer than Miller? He might have been a good passer in college, but he had players on his team that were good and could finish, all the Wolves have is Jefferson.

I have never seen anyone, who with the flick of a wrist, can throw a pass 86 feet into your numbers at will. Nobody. Ever. I think Mike Miller and Randy Foye are gonna love all those open 3's they get.

what I think is funny, is the same argument everyone makes on him coming into the NBA, his athletic ability, conditioning, etc, is the same argument they made when he went to college. And what did he do? Win PAC 10 player of the year AS A FRESHMAN over Bayless, Mayo, Westbrook, Lopez, etc. He finds a way. He is so much smarter on the floor than any other player. He will find a way again. I am not saying he will be an all star. But this is a kid who will be a 18-11 player for his prime years I think, and will make ESPN on some of his full court passes.
