Kevin Love has dominated the NBA in a big way this year
This one drives me absolutely crazy. Being a die hard NBA enthusiast, I have never lost more trust and been more mad at the NBA.
Kevin Love probably deserves to be an All-Star over 70 percent of the guys who made it. This guy is an absolute beast.
There is one tiny knock on his All-Star resume, and that's that he plays for a bad team. But still, he has done so much this year it's ludicrous not to have him in the All-Star game.
There are so many arguments and numbers that illustrate how amazing Love is I'm not quite sure where to start.
How about we begin with this.
Kevin Love currently leads in the NBA in double-doubles with 43. He has played in 48 games so far this year. Wow.
He is ahead of guys like Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard, and Pau Gasol for double doubles, all players who got All-Star nods. Another wow.
His consecutive streak of double-doubles in a row currently sits at 34, an outstanding feat no one in the NBA has come close to this year.
Further adding to Love's outstanding year, he has been an absolute vacuum on the glass.
He currently averages 15.5 rebounds a game! He is almost two whole rebounds per game ahead of the guy in second place, someone named Dwight Howard.
Fans would assume that averaging over 15 boards a game would take tons of minutes per game to do, but Love does it in an extremely efficient 36.7 minutes a night.
Not only does Kevin rebound, the kid can score too.
He is 16th in the NBA in points per game, at 21.4 per outing.
Already looking at these numbers, you might ask how can the number one rebounder and the 16th top scorer NOT make the All-Star game? The correct answer to that is the NBA screwed up big time.
Kevin Love got absolutely robbed and if commissioner David Stern doesn't pick him as Yao Ming's replacement, NBA fans will go nuts on him.
Never in recent history has a guy been more qualified to be in the All-Star game and been snubbed like this.
Sorry Kevin, you get no love.
