I get the off-court hate, but lets not forget he had a 36 and 13 game against the Cavs before this one and his rebounding numbers have actually improved this season, he'll get there. Besides, we won, lets focus on some of the positives.


Yeah, well, I kind of hate that 36 and 13 performance too because it gave him courage to bitch around. xD

Bah, whatever, I guess you guys are right.


The interview was conducted before/after the Philadelphia game the other week.


Oh, ok, my bad.

Whenever he thinks he got fouled on offense he usually complains to the ref first and then you see him jogging back on defense while the rest plays 4 vs. 5.


I was thinking to myself while I was watching this game that one of the coaches must have said something to Love about the complaining because it seemed to me that he was biting his tongue a bit and not complaining. He's still got work to do on getting back on d, but I think that is getting better too.

I think he's going to be better then Love will be...plus he's going to be even more marketbale, while playing both ends at an elite level, and he's going to attract players because of his passings. Obviously that's a huge gamble to take in todays league, and we wont trade Love right now so its really a moot point.


He may become a better player overall in the long run and even if he does indeed become a better player he will most likely not be a better scoring option. What I meant by superstar was in fact a player you can count on to score for you.

Honestly, I thought it happened many more times than usually. He may not have actually pouted or yelled at the refs but whenever things didn't go his way offensively, and that happened a lot, he was turning to the refs (without pouting/yelling) and still giving up valuable time getting back on defense.
