2. KEVIN LOVE, 2012
He was already mentioned before, but Love’s first game back this season on Nov. 21 was enormous — and not just for the Timberwolves’ psyche. His 34 points and 14 boards belied some rustiness — he was just 2-for-9 on threes, where he normally shot past 40 percent on in his career — but took Minnesota off life support. How good is Love? The points and rebounds he got in his first game back from a broken hand, when easing back into the game’s flow should be expected, has only been equaled or beaten by Anderson Varejao and Zach Randolph this season.
