Kevin Love is a true shooter that has the ability to play out of the post as well. He excels in pick n fade screens if you have a point guard that can get him the ball, whether mid-range or from 3pt. Also quick post ups can have a great upside with his hook shot being very easy to time, especially against other power forwards. Through 6 games Love has averaged 12 PPG and 6 RPG during domination. He also has had 3 different games with 2 or more 3pt makes which shows his versatility.
Bought for: 3,200 MT
-Open Shot 3pt/Contested: 83/81 | Great shooter with quick and moderately easy release -Post Control: 88 | His fade away and hook shots are very difficult to stop, even with height on d. -Rebounding: 84 | Whether it's offensive or defensive you can count on Kevin as I showed above with his statistics. -Draw Foul: 72 and Free Throw: 78 | Gets to the line with a very very easy release and does not miss! I'm shooting 88% from the line with him.
-On Ball Defense: 60 | You absolutely cannot switch onto any guard because the opponent will score, and even in the post (Low Post D: 64) -Playmaking 51: This only applies to a double team in the post, if you see one coming you need to get the ball out quick, otherwise it will be a turnover.
**Recommended Strategy: Pick and fade, quick post up, spot up 3pt
Use if: You need a great all around scorer or rebounder.
Don't use if: You need a low post defender or a quick power forward with playmaking.
Bottom Line: Great player to have on your team.
