Really never seemed how well he plays but he's doing it without great talent or veterans.  Blake is primarily a transition dunker and Lin can get shut down on any given night.  This guy brings it every night with points and boards. Why he stayed in Minny is beyond me.

Because he shoots 43% and 33% from 3? And they have a garbage record? Am I right?

Well because his team sucks, and all he did was carry his team but didn't get victories.  Just look at their previous year record.  Even with K Love getting double-doubles every night, they weren't able to win at all.  Lin is different as he is a minority doing great things.  Blake was able to lead a win against top teams such as Miami's big three in his rookie year.  K Love isn't new, and everyone who plays fantasy basketball loves him on their team, but his team doesn't produce like they have this season.

Because he doesn't throw down highlight dunks that ESPN goes crazy over. I wouldn't trade one Kevin Love for two Blake Griffins.

T-wolves are 19-19 playing in a difficult conference.  Even with Rubio he doesn't have the luxuries Griffin and Lin has in other all stars.

Because Kevin Love is not Asian and he doesn't jump over cars like Blake....

That being said.....

KLove is the best player out of the 3.

I'll can say the same thing for Monta Ellis. He should've made the All Stars in place of Steve Nash too. Love Nash, but he got in because of history.

Kevin Love is an excellent player, no doubt.  And it's not the NBA's fault the Twolves haven't built a great team around him. Go get good players. That's how you do it.

I dont think the T-wolves suck

Does everyone know they have a winning record well 19-19 . Ricky Rubio, petro, Derrick WIlliams is starting to play with confidence, Beasley can go off from time to time. Berea is a nice backup PG. WATCH OUT!!! I know they way over 500 lately

Huge T Wolves fan. Watch almost every game. Love doesn't get any respect. Plays the game on both ends. Way better then Blake or Alridge. It is all ESPN. He doesn't play in L.A. and doesn't jump or dunk as well as Blake. Blake can't shoot outside 3 feet!

Not rocket science! Market size! LA - NY  vs. Minn. Duh! If Love was in LA or NY you would hear about him!

So many responses to get to the obvious right answer.

Lin is in New York and an obvious amazing story.  Blake is in Los Angeles.  Kevin is in Minneapolis.  Seems obvious.  If love keeps playing like this, and he stays healthy, people will speak of love in the same breath as karl malone, who also didn't get the same hype as his peers because he was in salt lake city.
