Kevin Love Does Not Smell Like An All-Star

The Minnesota Timberwolves have finally done something clever, and it only took them 22 years. I actually didn’t want to cover this, but then everyone else was soiling themselves over it, so I deliver it unto you against my better judgement.

On the same day the NBA announced the starters for the All-Star game next month, the Wolves’ public relations department unveiled its campaign to convince the coaches to vote their star into the game as a reserve.

A box was mailed to all Western Conference coaches that includes a bottle of ”Numb#rs” cologne, a DVD with a 30-second commercial for the product that spoofs an ultra-serious fragrance ad, an advertisement that includes Love and a local model dressed to the nines and a list of his accomplishments on the back, and a bottle of face lotion just for good measure.

Annoying. If he’s not good enough to get voted in on his own merits, then he shouldn’t get in.

Cool video, though. I totally want to drink with that…whatever the hell that was.

NBA NOTES: If you can dunk like Will Bynum, you could win a big HDTV, a Wii, and perhaps enough self-respect to get through the winter. You can register on Above The Rim’s Facebook page, perhaps while listening to some Kris KrossBYU’s Jimmer Fredette is getting a lot of attention from NBA media, not to mention NBA playersLeBron James And Friends lost to the Knicks last night. Dwyane Wade wore a red-tinted lens over his face (though not the ones he wanted, right) for a migrane issue. He could probably expect a class-action lawsuit anyday from James Worthy, the X-Man Cyclops, and RoboCop.
