Video: Love, Rubio star in ESPN commercial


The Wolves play at the Denver Nuggets tonight and they'll have their bonafide superstar Kevin Love leading the way. Love is arguably the best rebounder and one of the best all-around scorers in the league.

In fact, Love is the first player in NBA history to pile up 240 points, 125 rebounds and 45 assists through the first nine games of a season, according to the Pioneer Press.

He's being compared to the likes of Moses Malone, whose bust resides in the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame.

"To be honest, I try not to pay attention to all that," Love said. "It's definitely flattering to hear those names -- guys I grew up either watching or studying tape of, or just trying to emulate in my back yard. But more than anything, I'm just excited about winning."

On top of the scoring and rebounding, Love might be the best outlet passers in the NBA. The Star Tribune has a nice piece on that.

His superstardom has convinced ESPN to put him in some of their entertaining promos. The latest has Wolves point guard Ricky Rubio in the command center of a Kevin Love, "Love Dial" hotline. It's hilarious...
