Kevin Love Says He Won the ‘White Guy’ Award from NBA GMs


In the annual NBA GM survey, Kevin Love received the most votes for “Which player makes the most of limited natural ability” question. Love responded with biting sarcasm on Twitter:

    That’s truly a BS poll question. Who makes up these questions? Can’t these dork GMs read between the lines? Is rebounding and shooting maximizing “limited ability?” Why don’t they say that about Paul Pierce then? He doesn’t play athletic either and he’s been a great player for a long time. Derrick Favors doesn’t play athletic either. How about Al Jefferson? I actually think Carl Landry makes the most out of his ability. This poll is acinine.

    LOL! Almost spat out my coffee.

    @pposse:disqus

    Adding velocity adding velocity Alimoe was the hardest and 1 to ever do it.

  • Nick Holden

    Derrick Favors does’t play athletic? lol what.

    This question really is impossible to answer in a way isn’t based on pure speculation. Love is on to something, it should just be “best white player”

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    is it a stretch to say that gerald green is more athetlic than adnrew wiggins

  • berkamore

    Damn, it’s 2013……..well, one would think. smh.

    I love K. Love’s reaction but it’s disrespectful to him. The guy can flat out play. He’s not a “good white player.”, he’s a good player, period. Jesus, people sometimes……….

  • pposse

    my basis for athleticism is based on vertical jump and quickness. Gerald green is up there as one of the most athletic bball player imo.

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    bro are you from chicago if so let me know

  • pposse

    yessir

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    first off Jesus is not white as the false images are painted on churches. why do people believe in a white man god that’s similar to greek and roman mythology.

    Even the founding fathers of this country though blacks were 1/3 human. shout out to aaron mcgruder. Malcom X was the real hero he understood equality was not based on pigment of the skin. How many people know who Martin Luther is the real martin luther the one who hated the oppression by the catholic church and ended doing the same as his predecessor by changing and making a completely new religion Romans 3:28 alterations. What is “western” christianity. People stop believing in christianity and don’t base your views on a historically inaccurate text. the church has been known to control people and take their wealth. look at Yahoo.com the bishop of bling. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRNCpD3xhsY Use that wealth to donate to the needy or helped those oppressed

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    are you in teh suburbs what high school did you go to and what is your ethnicity

  • pposse

    this is where the convo must stop ADVDTM

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    what does ADVDTM mean? i would probably done the same with those questioning. you are the first indidivdual that actually has common sense enough to protect yourself. dont believe the hype here that dont believe the hype.

    i agree only in the States does race have this much impact. I guess its a multicultural phenomena not found in the denmarks or the ethiopias of the world

    What are you on about?

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    shout out Big L 2nd to Killa Cam from harlem

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    interesting. bro deconstruct your own life history and figure out what it means in the grand scheme of things. dont worship the religion of basketball.

  • Nick Holden

    Funny you should say that since I am actually from Denmark

  • Zabbah

    Nice message. Try to be coherent next time if you want us to take you serious.

  • bike

    Wonder who would come out on top if they asked ‘which player does the least with the most natural ability?’ Gerald Green maybe? James White if he was still in the L?
    It’s still a compliment either way…right?

  • spit hot fiyah

    andre miller and zach randolph got lot of votes

  • AndyK415

    Lol. That a boy Kev.

  • Cortez Mack

    I would like someone to explain to me what “natural” ability someone like Chris Paul has.

    In fact, I would like someone to explain exactly what falls under the category of “natural ability” in the first place.

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    The desperation in my tone in this case results from a plea a plea for humanity

    Zabbah are your either African or Persian?

    The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence is fear mongering stay away from the masses and focus on the facts the facts

  • Zabbah

    Use full stops, commas, etc, to make your sentences coherent. I will not waste time trying to figure out where your phrases or sentences end, since I spend about 3 seconds per comment on average.
    And proof read.

    Big L is definitely NOT 2nd fiddle to Cam

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    3 seconds not possible

    Over 9000 over 9000

  • pposse

    even if i wanted to i doubt i can do that myself. that is why in this society we pay big bucks for a psychologist, if thats what your asking me to do then sure ill take your advice into consideration.

  • Zabbah

    It took me less than two seconds to read what you just wrote. So yeah, on average that comes out to 3, i guess.

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    Trust me bro even if Cameron Giles doesn’t realize it he’s the greatest example of the American Dream and greatest example of American culture

    Children of corn or some name like that was when cam was going weak. The dipset cam went to another level. The best example of a 90s-current product of American culture and he expresses himself well to. The modern day Robert hemingway

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    What are you a saiyan and why are you here is Cell in our midst

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Ok even if he embodies the true spirit of the “American Dream” it still doesn’t prove his lyrical game was anywhere near Big L.

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    It’s qualitative info that can’t be define with numbers

  • Zabbah

    Sometimes.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Just don’t man…just let it go lol

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    Yes I mentioned it his dipset metaphors rhyme game even the unique flow and content surpasses big L. Personally L was a martyred so he remains popular by general consesus

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    One day we will meet one day. Til then protect yourself from yourself evil lies within us all and around us

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    To each his own I suppose. Hip hop is selective so I respect your decision.

  • pposse

    T-Ray you are absolutely right. I thank you for that.

    Can I get an invite to your club for fantasy basketball

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    No bro psychologist and psychiatric institutions are there to help with pathological issues. I am saying deconstruct your life why do you feel the way you do about certain issues. Is there evidence that supports others views over your own. Do you seek the truth or are you content with your surroundings no matter the consequence

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    T ray name top 5 mcs ever to spit and give particular timeline because not all mcs are hot all the time only in given years

    Same to you as posse deconstruct your being from your parental upbringing to your current lens of why you have your views.

    Break that lens and assumptions that go into it.

  • Dfrance

    He put that out there himself tho, unless I’m missing something.

  • http://www.rich-imaging.com/ Dutch Rich

    I think Tim Thomas holds the lifetime achievement award in that category. Corey Maggette was 2nd runner up.

  • Cortez Mack

    I did not ask for any “numbers”, but okay, I will play along.

    What qualitative “natural” ability does Chris Paul have?

    And, generally, how would one compare (or measure) this qualitative attribute as it relates to two people to know if either of those people had more, or less, to “work with” in the first place?

    What are they referring to as being “limited” in Kevin Love?

  • bike

    The assumption is that it is a combination of quickness, leaping ability, and speed; attributes that many think blacks have an advantage over whites. In other words, God-given traits that provide an advantage in certain sports but are not ‘learned’ skills such as shooting, ball handling, court vision, etc. Collectively, it is described as ‘athletic ability’.

  • bike

    Yeah, I’d have to agree with Maggette. Still remember a dunk he did in college that sent shockwaves throughout the scouting community.

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    natural ability is subjected to definition. I define natural ability as the one who without in depth study of the game is able to demonstrate effective ability in commanding the game with ease. Now in context you could take a 7 footer and put him with middle schoolers does that 7 footer have natural ability yes. or that same 7 footer with pros and hed still dominate Kevin love o the other is a walking textbook on how to play basketball.

    It’s like a prodigy who gets it without knowledge and a student who learns

    both can reach the same plateua but the prodigy has to take less steps.

    @AddingVelocityDontTellMe:disqus I FEEL YOU BRO – Speak and stand on #truth

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    man is your cheese still as fresh as from the udder of cows

  • Dfrance

    By the way they talk about “limited natural ability” I can only assume it stands for that player with “average to below average” athleticism. It really doesn’t speak to a players actual ability to play the game of basketball.

    K Love is a way above average basketball player. But he’s probably not much more athletic that the average human being of comparable size and weight.

    I’m just talking here, I think the whole thing is silly.

    dawg am i the only one realizes when Aaron McGruder, George Carlin, Dave Chapelle make jokes they are serious but most people just not concerned.

    racism is ignorance but i never understood why there isn’t a Malcolm X day? better yet why is that in every city in America blacks occupy one side of the city and whites the opposite. Even better question… i guarantee there’s a higher concentration of weed, drugs, underage alcohol consumption in the richer suburbs, but where do prison stats reflect his. Police normal patrol inner city more than suburbs. THIS IS NOT CONSPIRACY THEORY THIS IS NOT FEAR MONGERING. This current ideology will allow for the greedy and powerful to oppress the weak. If you don’t get this now wake up and i am not talking Alex Jones Radio Show and David Icke (i am not insulting anyone behind there back) because I don’t sell anything and not making a living doing this trying make people get tbhat pursuit your search for truth and get out your bubble. I am not a socialist that’s illogical. Read what people in American Think tanks view like brookings institute, stanford’s hoover institute. They know this but why isn’t there change… GREED GREED GREED. Save $1 from your bar drinks and give it to someone who needs it.

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    this is the definition of trolling – submit a deliberately provocative posting to an online message board with the aim of inciting an angry response

    What was Copernicus doing, what was Isaac Newton doing, What was Martin Luther King Jr. doing… Social consensus is not right wake up. Basketball is the greatest venue to say this because basketball nba is modern day slavery when you humanize the situation doens’t matter how much millions they make. This is current cultural unlike what founding fathers wanted has oppressed and enslaved the minds look at the rise and fall of any civilization we are in the decline we are in the decline.

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    that’s true tim thomas coulda been something

  • Mako

    This is so stupid, people only look at vertical leap equating to natural talent. Love has great hands, balance, coordination, quick eyes, natural instinct, strong,etc. that’s natural ability. Compare him to deandre jordan, who can jump, but in other categories, is quite clumsy, yet peolple think it’s de Andre who has more natural talent. Basketball needs to update it’s thinking moneyballl style.

  • initbruv

    You’re never saying anything that everyone doesn’t already know, albeit somewhat illiterately.

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    but that’s my point. IF MANY PEOPLE KNOW THeSE facts then why do these problems still exists.

  • initbruv

    Because many of the people who know these things either don’t care or are directly responsible for them continuing. And because rich and powerful people benefit from the way things are and they have a vested interest in keeping things the way they are.

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    oppression this is oppression

  • initbruv

    Yeah.

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love measured out reasonably well—6-9 ½ in shoes (6-7 ¾ without), with a 6-11 ¼ wingspan and an 8-10 standing reach. His body fat is still very high at 12.9%, but in the combine he jumped 35 inches, lifted the 185 bar 18 times, and ran very well (11.17, 3.22)

    There is nothing limited about Kevin Love’s athletic attributes.

    Assumptions? Every statement I said was historically accurate. Research Christianity. Most people cite biblical verses for what purpose other than to make them look socially distinct. Strictly basketball? The nba is a metaphor for life. We are all brothers and sisters in humanity.

    Next time you watch a game look at the stands. Look at the refs. Looks at the players… We are humans
