Numb#rs: Kevin Love’s All-Star Campaign

The TWolves just launched a campaign called “Numb#rs,” promoting Kevin Love for a reserve spot on the All-Star Team. A gift set, which included bottles of the cologne and aftershave lotion as well as a TV commercial and magazine ad for Love’s new fragrance, were sent to all Western Conference head coaches this week. For more on the campaign, head to 612allstar.com.

    This guy has to be an All Star, even if its at reserve. He leads the NBA in double doubles, and that 30 / 30 game…whos better in the west to take as a reserve for Forward / Centre ?

  • aotearaw

    LOL, best AS self-promo yet.

    In a word “contraction” and NUMBERS

    I don’t get this campaign stuff.
    Promote yourself by playing basketball and not promoting yourself.

  • LeBron de Con

    Speedy — I take it as a public recognition by the Wolves for Kevin Love’s performance and something for his fans to enjoy. Love is just having fun with it, I’m sure.

    THIS DUDE HAS NO BUSINESS BEING AN ALLSTAR THIS SEASON!!!! He can be an allstar as soon as the lwolves are at .500. In other words, as soon as he leaves minny. ….. Blake is borderline. Clips are winning more, but idk, theyre still no bueno. …… Zbo, aldridge, and david west are more deserving.

    ^ what?!! Since when does your team winning have anything to do with All-Star status?

  • r2j

    Tarzan stop being a wuss. Love desreves to go and so does Blake Griffin. Duncan will be irrelevant when it comes to All Star games and Dirk is not 100% so both Love and Griffin deserves All Star status. Stop sippin that haterade it’s bad for ya!

    Tarzan.. To quote Charles.. “ain’t nobody put up 30 30 since moses! And thats Malone.. Not the one who parted the red sea.”

    The All-Star game should have nothing to do with team wins. Being an All-Star is recognition for your play as an individual and if Love is not deserving, no one is.

  • izzo

    He’s so dreamy.

  • Omar

    1. Who’s the chick in the ad?

    2. Blake goes. Love doesn’t. That is all.

  • fruizm

    whatsup with his suit.

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Love is not an all star, like someone said, please get your team to at least.500. I would take Odom over him, plus Blake taken his spot for bad teams power forwards making all star game. BOOK IT!!

  • Gary

    He’s not an All-Star. His defense is atrocious (That’s why Rambis benched him for long stretches in the beginning of the season). He compiles big stats on a terrible team. And he doesn’t even have any “highlight factor.” Most people would rather see Blake Griffin dunk on somebody than see Love outrebound somebody.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Lamar Odom over Kevin Love? With all due respect, man WTF?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!

  • dma

    Seeing how the coaches are the ones that vote, and coaches don’t generally like selfish players who play to pad their stats, Kevin Love won’t go. Aldridge has beasted both Love and Griffin in their matchups recently.

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    The Seed and Tarzan’s combined IQ doesn’t reach double digits. Love deserves to be an all-star.

  • theDankerNuggets

    “He has the numbers” lol

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    Ted and jukai are retards. Being on a winning team has always weighed heavily on being an allstar. Its apparent you fuccers dont pay attn………… Heres a fun question: who was the last rookie to be an all star?

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Yao Ming I think.
    And no, it hasn’t. Why was David Lee an All-Star last year, if that was the case? Chris Bosh? Oh yeah, because they were totally on contenders. No. And yes, Kevin Love should be an All-Star.

  • riggs

    wtf are yall smoking? lamar odom over kevin love? wtf has lamar odom done better than kevin love? shaddap

  • Towelie

    Interesting…I think I went to school with that model chick.

  • ish smits

    Kevin love is an all star. All haters stop commenting.

  • http://www.pablasso.com pablasso

    Yao wasn’t voted as a rookie, the last two were Tim Duncan and Grant Hill (which was actually the most voted player overall that year).

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    I’ll cosign Tarzan @ 7:04.. Not so much about the part where the team needs to be at .500, but there are so many other deserving bigs out west. Aldridge,Z-Bo,Griffin,Gasol,Duncan,Al Jefferson,Nowitzki.

  • Gary

    You don’t have to be on winning team to be an All-Star, but winning DOES factor into it. Love is on the team with the second worst record in the league. That hurts his cause. They aren’t even competitive. At least Blake’s team and LA’s team are competitive. And did I mention that Love plays no defense? I think I did.

  • http://blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/ Anthony

    I guess the West reserve will be: Williams, Westbrook, Manu, Dirk Pau, Love, Griffin and Duncan replacing Yao in the starting 5. Am I missing someone ?

  • Yesse

    Blake Griffin…

  • rikson

    He puts up big numbers on a really bad team, dont let that fool you! Plus, that ad is really – I mean REALLY bad, and on the photo the chicks arm looks like love is wearing a huge necklace…

  • http://www.slamonline.com Coney Islander

    LOL! His team might suck, but he is putting up those numbers against the best in the world!

  • Max

    Timmy D

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    Yep, it was tim. Not bron, wade, etc. Tim, 13 yrs ago. Winning matters……….. Teddy, david lee was a replacement cuz a couple guys got hurt. And bosh was voted as a starter.

  • Michael

    lol yeah kevin love shouldn’t make it because no other player on a bad timberwolves team averaging monster scoring/rebounding stats has ever made it … oh wait … (*cough*kg*cough*)

  • Gary

    KG also basically could play all five positions for the T Wolves as well as being their best defender at all positions. Comparing Love to KG when he was on the T Wolves makes you look foolish.
