The journey of Kevin Love in the NBA has been full of ups and downs. From being regarded as one of the best forwards in the league during his time in Minnesota to a slow decline due to recurring injury troubles.
It goes without saying that Kevin Love's career would be on a different trajectory if injuries didn't exist. Love played an instrumental role in the Cleveland Cavaliers' four straight NBA finals appearances.
He also agreed to take a backseat to the LeBron James-Kyrie Irving duo, which affected his scoring output as well. Despite that, Love has an impressive resume and should enter the Basketball Hall Of Fame in the future.
Speaking about his odds, NBA Central on Twitter recently shared a post about the probability of current NBA stars entering the Hall Of Fame. On the list, Love has a probability of 73.47%, which is lower than a few players who are yet to win a single NBA championship.
As a result, fans on Twitter were furious for placing Kevin Love so low on the list.
Kevin Love being too low on the list isn't the only thing fans were disappointed. The fact that Giannis Antetokounmpo is so below also made a lot of people furious.
The only explanation for this could be that the list is yet to be updated. Otherwise, it makes little to no sense.
Anyway, coming back to the matter at hand, let's put Love's career under the microscope.
The former Timberwolves star has a strong resume. He has won an NBA championship, 5x NBA All-Star, 2x All-NBA, and a lot more things to his name.
As for his scoring prowess, Love has averaged 18.0 points for his career, but his peak was during his last season with the Timberwolves. That season, Love averaged a career-high 26.1 points alongside 12.5 rebounds a game!
Averaging a double-double is not an easy feat by any means and by doing so Love earned the chance to play side by side with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.
In a nutshell, Love should make the Basketball Hall Of Fame after he hangs up his sneakers.
