Kevin Love...are you shocked to see him on the top ten MVP list? The only reason you may be surprised to see his name mentioned for MVP is because of how poorly the Timberwolves have played this year. To that I say this...how bad would the T-Wolves be without K-Love?
At only 22 years old, he is playing like a man possessed. It is as if someone has told him he was horrible and he really, really, really wanted to prove them wrong. Kevin Love has simply been an animal, a beast and, quite frankly, a vacuum on the boards.
Love almost single handedly is keeping the Wolves from being the worst team in NBA history and that speaks volumes about how valued he is not only to his team but to the league as a whole. He is respected amongst his peers and plays with heart every night leaving nothing in the tank at the end of each game.
Well, coming into this season Kevin Love was good but was nothing like he has been playing like this year. He just broke the NBA's record for most consecutive double doubles with his 52nd Wednesday night.
Kevin Love's statistics for the past two seasons are shown below. It is important to leave last year's stats up to show how much Love has improved his game over the past season.
