NBA players may be some of the most athletic men on the planet. But at the end of the day, they're only human.
What if they weren't?
Each and every NBA team's star player has a certain blend of physical and mental traits that make him unique. Some are stronger than others. Others have little to no personality. Others still fadeaway in the fourth quarter, and I'm not talking about fadeaway jump shots here.
Those traits lend themselves towards certain comparisons. So, if each team's star player had to be an animal, which animal would they be?
This idea came about when I heard that Kevin Love had participated in a beach volleyball event. That was strange to me because I'd always pictured Love as an animal that had no place on the beach. You'll have to read on to find out which one.
Love's animal equivalent was rather easy to come up with but some of the others were much tougher.
