Is Kevin Love worth a max contract from the Minnesota Timberwolves?
And this double –double streak that the NBA likes you to know about every time Kevin Love’s name is mentioned is an insult to both Kevin Love and big who have come before him of any substance. So why is Kevin Love’s name attached to double- doubles?? Check out the following:
- Longest continuous streak of double-doubles: According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Wilt Chamberlain holds the record with 227 consecutive double-doubles from 1964 to 1967. Chamberlain also holds the second and third longest continuous streak of double-doubles with 220 and 133. This record is before the ABA–NBA merger in 1976. The longest streak of double-doubles since the merger was 53 games, achieved by Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
- Let’s quantify this by saying the reference to double- double of Kevin Love is points and rebounds.
If Wilt Chamberlain holds the record with 227 consecutive double- double why is Kevin Love’s name mentioned at all? Doesn’t he have some catching up to do?
Question what time is it when the Heat has a substantial led against the Lakers? Answer its Eddy Curry time. Yes there was an Eddy Curry sighting. For those of you Knick fans like myself Curry was the poster child of the failed Isaiah Thomas regime when Isaiah ran the Knicks. Now Curry is doing spot duty for the Heat. His line was 6 minutes 6 points 3 rebounds far short of his best season with the Knicks when he had 19.5 points and if memory serves correctly 8 rebounds a night.
