Love is a key player, but not a #1 player on a winning team. 2nd - 3rd player, kinda like Odom.

HATERS ARE GOING TO HATE!
all this bs about love being overated.....can't do what he's doing on a good team...blah blah blah
the man is putting up numbers no one seen in 30 years! if thats because his team sucks then why aren't players from other bad teams putting up these numbers?
one post above said hes getting boards because no one else on his team is a good rebounder.
ok, so lets say he was playing for the raps, the raps don't have anyone remotely decent at rebounding. so safe to say love will have the same eye-popping numbers here. in that situation, all the raps fans, on this same board that was disrespecting him would be saying its a travesty he wasn't selected.
talk about double standard....

I like Love, but I'm not in love with him
Look, everyone gives credit to him. I give credit, ok. Problem is, some guys gives too much credit. He had few insane games, insane, when we talking about the stats. But it's not everything. You need to do smth. more to prove you are superstar. Actually, if Love would be so good. Minny wouldn't be so bad (11-37, worse than Toronto.

I am not against to see Love as a all-star, but I believe selected players a better than him, and there is more players better than him. At the moment, the guy is only 22, insane...

Lets compare the same Lamar Odom, the guy noone talks about...
Odom averaging 15.5 ppg.
Love averaging 21.4.

It's plus 6 points. But wait, first of all, Love playing more minutes. Only 3 minutes, but still. Second, Odom play ball with Pau, Kobe,Fisher, Barnes, Brown. So many guns... It's much harder to prove yourself on such ateam as Los Angeles Lakers. And what, nothing... 15.5 points per game.

Odom 9.5 rebs
Love 15.5 rebs

I now it's crazy. 6 more rebounds! Love is greatest on the boards. But still i have few things to say. First, I mentioned it earlier. His teammates are terrible rebounders. Sounds silly but it effects, it increase his numbers at least a little. While Odom's Pau is top 5 rebounder. Second.garbage minutes. Noone play garbage minutes agains the Lakers, because they are winning team. Minny lost 37 games of 48! Lots of garbage minutes. And it's increases Love's numbers too.

And finally. Not about numbers. Odom is versatile, faster, better defender and a little mre atheletic. Goodness, that guy can play PG-C@!

Love is better rebounder, thats it. You may think different, or think i am the hater. I'm just saying, Love is most overrated player, he is equal Odom. Both great players.

Martynas, i see what ur saying, but no one is saying he's a superstar. if people are then, ya that is overrating him.
i'm just saying he is worth an all star spot as a reserve, not even as a starter, and was snubbed
there are worst teams past and present than the t-wolves and no player is putting up love's numbers. so being on a bad team may have something to do with it, it shouldn't be something that goes against him

We can say he deserved it. But it's not a robbery or something if he not gonna make it. I thought Pau or Dirk will replace Yao in the starting lineup, now I don't know how it's going but there is one spot left.
People overrate Love, than can't stop talking he was snubbed. Thats the idea he is not superstar or close to. People can say Boozer was snubbed, Aldridge was snubbed, Nash, Ellis, Granger, Gordon... was snubbed. There is a lot of good players, not only Love.

did i say he was a number 1 on a good team? but being a top 3 player on a good team is a lot better then being a role player. This isn't Bargnani we're talking about.

This article sums it up best:

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – All the rebounds, double doubles and slick commercials in the world don’t mean a thing without a little respect.

And apparently Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love hasn’t earned enough of the latter. How else do you explain the league’s leading rebounder and double doubles king being left off of the Western Conference All-Star team?

In a league that’s in love with metrics, Love’s would appear to be off the charts everywhere but in the one place that no one player can impact the digits on his own. The Timberwolves are a Western Conference-worst 11-37.

It’s an insult to the men who did make the team to wage an argument against anyone that’s already on the team. This is a subjective situation for the coaches in both conferences charged with selecting the reserves. They’ve confirmed my faith in their ability to always get it wrong.

That’s right, I said it. They blew it as usual.

They never fail to disappoint me with their inability to dole out the rewards for guys that are grinding (not every All-Star has to play on a winning team). What incentive is there for a player on a bad team to grind the way Love has when the coaches essentially tell you, “you’re putting up historical numbers, but we’re not buying it.”

Bad team or not, if 21.4 points, 15.5 rebounds and a league-best 43 double doubles doesn’t move you, what does?

That’s why we’re making Love the captain of HT’s All-Snub Team, and we don’t care if he get’s the Commissioner’s gift spot as Yao Ming‘s replacement.

Talking about who make it, Ray Allen and Horford? Come on, there is 3 Celts already, Allen? Horford, I don't know, he is not even a best big on his team IMO.
Pierce, Bosh, Johnson, I would replace them all, but just because I just don't like them. Not objective talking.
Actually all East bench make me sick LOL.

Al Horford is the next best center(Yes undersize) after Howard with Noah out. He deserves to be there. Very good player. He is the best big on the Hawks.
