    Default 31 and 31, rebounds and points for Love

    I know we have an overall NBA thread, but this is 31 freaking rebounds. 12 offensive and he only missed 15 shots himself so it's not exactly stat padding.

    And of course the 2nd straight 30+ point game for "bust" B-Easy. Someone just pushed Roy's MIP campaign down a flight of stairs.

    Well, I think I would consider trading him for Danny now.

    That is amazing. Duncan, Rodman, Russell-esque. Even though it is a single season game, this is ridiculous. Very very unique player with incredible skills.

    Love knows how to get boards using technique and his body. Very impressive, the guy also has a great amount of bball IQ. I'd love to have some Love on this team.

    Dear God,
    I promise to...
    Roy Hibbert.... It's the POWER!!!

    The rebounding race between Love, Noah, and Dwight is going to be epic.

    Danny's play recently has been such a disappointment, but I'd keep him just because he's still our star player and a huge piece to our future.

    After seeing this, I don't the Timberwolves are inclined to trading Love unless he really wants out.

    He's going to be a very good player in the future and I'm sure he would much rather come and play with Danny, Roy, Darren, Paul, etc. here than play with a poor talent Timberwolves team.

    Not only is it 31 boards, but if you followed my scouting of him or have watched him in the NBA you know his claim to fame is some of the most brilliant outlet passing you've ever seen. On a dime from baseline to 3/4 court, instant fast break.

    I'm figuring that of his 19 defensive boards more than 1 or 2 resulted in quick breaks the other way.

    I feel 100% vindicated in championing him as an elite pick long before he even cracked the top 20 prospects list. Others were with me but there were a lot of "he's too short and doesn't have enough vert" people saying he'd bust.


    PS - proof that UCLA's coach Ben Howland stinks = Love, Westbrook, Collison, Moute all on the same final 4 team that did NOT win it all. That might be 3 NBA all-stars and a solid 6th man before it's all said and done, and it's not like they weren't good then.

    Draft Express had Love in their top-five for the 2008 draft before he played a single game at UCLA. That's not surprising considering he was ranked #1 in ESPN's class of '07.

    Beasley wont get MIP award, he started all 78 games he played last year and is getting the same amount of minutes while taking an average of 2 more shots a game with the same fg% as last year, ft % is down drastically, less steals, blocks, and rebounds. Also having more fouls and double the turnovers. He is only getting 4 more points a game and that's the only thing he has improved on so far this year, besides the Wolves definitely wont be going to the playoffs, which most voters look at as a seperating point from one player to another. Besides, high draft picks are supposed to make big leaps, being the 2nd overall pick, you can count him out already. Tracy Mcgrady won the award after the 01-02 season and he was picked 9th, that's the highest drafted player, at 9 overall, to win the MIP in 15 yrs or so.

    Remember when we were arguing about whether he'd be a good pick in the early teens?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I think the MIP award will be going to a big man this season.

    I haven't really seen too many smaller guys improve yet.

    Eric Gordon he is a complete player now looks so much better than last yr. He is looking great so far. The biggest improvemrent is he is making his teammates better this yr.

    That may be a little unfair to Howland. The team did at least make it to the Final Four unlike Calipari's Kentucky Wildcats last season (although ironically the UCLA team did lose to Calipari's Memphis team that included Derrick Rose). Plus should we give Howland credit for developing guys like Collison, Westbrook and Moute who were not elite recruits?

    Gotta be pretty lucky to get 31 rebounds. Thats why monster games like that are so rare. Ability / Skill can get you 15 a game but getting up there in the 20s and even more so 30s requires a bit more than that.

    I will definitely go back and watch that game to see how he got those boards.

    Neither will the Pacers.

    If that's the case, I guess that seals Hibby not being MIP.

    Amazing rebounds.
    but he MISSED 15 shots! And scored 30pts!
    How many shots did he TAKE??

  30. #23

    Default Re: 31 and 31, rebounds and points for Love

    11-26 shooting because he started ice cold. At one point late in the 3rd Q he only had 7 points.

    He also had 5 assists.

    First 30+ rebound game since Barkley in '96 and first 30-30 game since Moses Malone in 1982
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Great game by Love. If he's really disgruntled and wants to leave, he's making his value go up. They'd be crazy to give up Love without an all star in return. Strange night when you also look at Grffin getting 18 and 18 in another loss for the Clippers.

    I'd bet Griffin will beat at least one of them by the end of season. But yes, amazing race it will be.
