Offensive rebounds per game by power forward Kevin Love during his rookie season. The only player who pulled down more was the league's leading rebounder, Dwight Howard of the Magic (4.3).
ENEMY LINES | A RIVAL SCOUT ON THE TIMBERWOLVES
I'm not sure what the plan is here, but it looks as if they have a good foundation with point guards. Ramon Sessions doesn't have a major weakness. He's a solid shooter and a pretty good pick-and-roll guy who can penetrate, and he has a knack for getting it out to the shooters. His aggressive mind-set helps him; you have to be a risk taker.... Jonny Flynn has court presence and is willing to take over the game. With the floor spaced like it is in the NBA—and the fact that [defenders] can't put their hands on him—he'll get the ball in the middle with the chance to use his quickness and strength. This league is made for a guy like him.... I wonder how their up-tempo style will work with Kevin Love, because he's more of a beefy loper. If they're not going to have him running with them, they'll have to get their wings on the break. But somebody has to rebound and outlet, and that's a strength of Love's; I've seen him take the ball from out of the basket and chest-pass it the length of the court.... Ryan Hollins is one of the better athletes in the league at the center position—or any position, really. The problem is he doesn't have a feel for the game.
