Kevin Love has been named to the All-NBA second team today. For anyone who remembers our discussions about Love’s relative value over the past few years, and for anyone who consider themselves Wolves fans for that matter, this is really an incredible thing.
Now, you may be thinking, hey, this dude was fourth in the league in scoring, second in rebounding and fifth in PER; how is it that he’s not on the first team? In response to that, I’d ask you this: is Love a demonstrably better defender than anybody else on those top two teams? Blake Griffin, maybe?
